A brief note on the health situation of himself. He was home from the hospital for about a week and a half when he had congestive heart failure. He ended up in hospital for a week and is now home again. The doctor said he was close to death. To be honest I felt that at the time. When we got to the hospital, he couldn't walk but a few steps so I had to put him in a wheelchair and get him seen to. He seems to be doing pretty well now, although weak. Fingers crossed that he continues to improve.
I can only say that after over four months I was starting to feel the stress. Thankfully my wonderful daughter came and stayed for that week. It was so good to have someone here so that I could relieve some of the stress by talking things out with.
The garden is coming along nicely. A few years ago someone asked me if I wanted a lilac tree that was dug up and about to be thrown out. I've always wanted on for the garden so I said yes. When I saw it I didn't think there was much hope as it was just a stick and it had been dug out so close to the trunk that there were no roots left on it. Never the less, I said "Miss Lilac, I'm going to give you a chance." So, I planted it. This year it's done me proud. Just goes to show that there is always hope. And, maybe the fairies were listening to the conversations I would have with it and performed their magic.
The lovely Miss Lilac
I've been trying to do some weeding but the black flies are driving me back in the house. And now the mosquitoes are becoming a nuisance. I expect I'll have to try it around five in the morning when it's a bit cooler and these creatures aren't quite ready to start their day.
So, here are a few pictures from around the garden.
