Mr. Painted Quilt, Ollie and I will be leaving shortly to make the seventy mile trip up the Valley to the hospital where I'll be undergoing a complete body CT scan around noon today. Your thoughts and prayers would be welcomed at this time considering the findings from the bone scan that I had a few weeks ago had some questionable results.
Whenever I find myself uptight, nervous or irritated, a quick tour of my gardens always seems to settle me down. So while dodging raindrops, I quickly managed to snap these photos just a few minutes ago.
Because we've had an unseasonably cold Spring, most of the Spring blooming perennials and bulbs have been late to awaken from their Winter sleep.
It has taken three years but the climbing hydrangea pictured above is finally going to bloom this year. It is filling out quite nicely and we're training it to climb up the bird feeder pole.
Just looking at the photos leaves me calm and I'm ready to confront whatever challenges await me today.
Thank you so much for caring.
