I am not sure how relevant any of this is to you or me or the world at large, but here we go.
My FIL is still in the Nursing Home ?Rehab. Seems to be OK most days, but there seems to be no news about his progress or his eventual return home. He is getting cranky and wants out, NOW.
My elbow is no better, but I am supposed to give it another couple of weeks and then maybe have a cortisone injection. I just want it better so I can go back to doing stuff outside. I can do it now, but I am afraid I will make it worse.
Tomorrow we go to Vermont for belated Mothers' Day and to return their computer which needed some tweaking ( yes, I said tweaking ala Tom Hanks in "You've Got Mail").
Mothers' Day was spent with no children, but with Bob digging in the back garden. My plan this year was to dig up my small back garden which is my only sunny space. The soil is just dirt and every year all my flowers come up looking lovely, but by July no amount of Miracle Grow can perk tham up. I dug out all the Black-eyed Susans, Daylilies and assorted other flowers and gave most of them away. Then we ( I use that pronoun very loosely) added 3" of peat moss and 10 bags of composted manure and forked it in. This was only one half of the space, but the rest should be done Memorial Day weekend. I spent too much money at the nursery and bought these two rose bushes.
This one is "Pat Austin" a copper colored rose and the next one is "Graham Thomas".
Both are David Austin English Roses. Hopefully I ( there I go again, pretending it was moi) have done enough to help them thrive. I am excited. The Pat Austin has 25 buds and the Graham Thomas has none, but must flower just a bit later. I have also planted Morning Glories and Moon flowers, some lavender ( which I love and have never grown before) and some herbs. The next project is the front yard which I am modeling after A Rate My Space page. Stay tuned!
