|Rhododendrens in front of my house in full bloom last Spring|
Actually, I just really couldn't get into my blog at all. Here I am at now though.
Today is overcast and 63F after a cold and snowy week. We might have rain but it is definitely forecast for the rest of the weekend.
Most of the snow is gone now except in the shadiest of places and it was just a normal spring change-a-roo.
Spring is notorious for changing her mind on a whim isn't she? I can recall snow flurries as late as the middle of April.
Soon the planting will begin, though I will have to have it done for me as I can't do things like that anymore. I do have plans though and hope I can get help to do it all. After all this time indoors I just need a garden to escape to for the summer.
I need the ponds looking good too. It would be such a lift to my spirit. I have large, and I mean huge overgrown pink rhododendrons to remove under the front bedroom windows of the house. They must be replaced too as they just grow extremely wide. They will cover the house if they aren't removed. Though I will miss the blossoms, there isnt any other way.
The pruning would be ridiculous and the bushes have pushed their way out 1/3 of the way across my large front yard. Blossoming bushes are hard to trim correctly so that they look nice I think.
PT is going great. I've been going since fall and hope to go all summer as well. I really do need it and am getting muscles!! Seriously, my legs were spindles and now they have calf muscle again and I am strong. My arms are getting strong as well. I love doing the exercises but they are not easy. Still when you were in a wheelchair for a while it is awesome to do anything while walking or standing up straight. I am thrilled. Each time I walk I get thrilled again. I am so grateful to be better now.
Rain is predicted for the weekend, but warmer temperatures.
Whatever your weather, I hope it is a lovely, refreshing weekend for you.
I will be back Saturday night or Sunday with another post and I will have a new meme on Monday.
PS.. decided to do Toni's coffee quiz (pretty accurate for me too):
|You Are a Cappuccino|
However, you tend to have strong opinions on what you like.
You are a total girly girly at heart - and prefer your coffee with good conversation.
You're the type that seems complex to outsiders, but in reality, you are easy to please
