My pink columbine. Aunt May gave me a piece of hers about 5 years ago and I am extremely fond of this because it is something to remember her by.
Forget me nots are blooming. Every year they spread and take over more of the garden. However, they die back early and give way for the hollyhocks, delphiniums, carnations and other flowers that are planted here.
Today hubby and the boys weeded the flower beds and the veggie garden. Next weekend we will be planting tomato plants and leaf lettuce. Mmm! I can hardly wait for fresh veggies from the garden, but don't want to wish the summer away.
My iris. This plant had dozens of blooms this year. Some died back and we removed them which made way for more to bloom. They are one of my favorites in the spring garden.
Since these photos were taken my Black Knight iris is blooming. Just a couple of blooms on it this year. I really need to transplant it in August to see if it will do better. I also have canterbury bells coming into bloom, peonies and my Oriental poppies. The hollyhocks are about a foot high but have a long way to go. I'm watching the garden patiently to see what will be the next to bloom. My guess is the peonies. I'll try to get some photos when the buds open.
I'm doing better everyday. Yesterday hubby and I went treasure hunting and found a few things at the fleamarket and a couple of garage sales. Last night I was really tired and was in bed by 10pm. Today I'm doing fine and supervised the garden weeding.
Mom is still in hospital and not doing great. She's had a lot of nausea since Thursday when they changed her meds. I have a hunch that the new meds don't agree with her. They have done a scope on the bladder and an ultra sound but haven't given her any results yet. They are keeping her in hospital until they find out exactly what is going on. I'm very frustrated that the nurses still don't want me to go to see her in case of staph infection. She's been in hospital 2 weeks and I haven't been able to get up to see her. We made sure she has a phone so we talk once or twice a day.
Josh is doing much better and in a very intensive therapy program. At present he is frustrated and angry because his brain is telling him he can do things that he can't do. I totally understand that.
Please keep everyone in your prayers. We are all on the mend.
