I feel years younger today!

Thursday, May 01, 2014

Spring has sure brought out the best in me. I worked out in the flower beds digging out the dandelions and loosening up the ground around the plants that have already come up. I see lots of room to plant some annuals again amongst the perennials. In three weeks I will go to the garden shops and pick up my annuals and some more perennials to give the yard some more beauty.
Last spring we had decided to sell the house and move into the city because my husband felt the place was too much work for him to keep up with at his age. Once summer came and there was less yard work to do he changed his mind. This year he is having a hard time physically doing all that he want to do outside again. I know one of these years we are going to have to make the move into the city, but being 10 years younger than my husband, I still enjoy the time I spend outside in my yard and am not yet ready to give up something that gives me so much pleasure. This year I am especially thankful that we didn't move last year because I would be sitting around in my suite missing my garden and wishing I was back here.

    Sounds wonderful. I need to get busy with the yard. When my fibro first got so bad, the extremes in temperatures and the exhaustion knocked the wind out of my proverbial sails. I did a little more last year than the year before and hope to be able to do more this year. My poor plants need a feminine touch. emoticon

    You are so right; working in the garden, makes you feel more alive. My ability to work in the garden has been gone for about three years. This year, I hope to be able to do some work outside because I love it. Thanks for sharing.
