Hello from the land of post-surgery! Two weeks ago, I received a shiny new hip. I'm still in recovery mode, but doing better everyday. Toward the end, I was feeling quite desperate to get the whole thing over with. I don't know how people with chronic pain deal with it, day after day.
I'm a ways away from doing any yard work. There isn't much to do besides clean up. I'm mentally making plans for next year, when I can actually do something. I will continue downsizing, for one thing. I'm also abandoning the "I'll take one of everything" approach to plant selection, going for larger displays of fewer plants.
Last night I awoke to loud rainfall. I couldn't help but wonder, What if that were SNOW?!? Unlike many others, I like a good, snowy winter, something that doesn't happen very much around here, especially in recent years. One can only hope.
May your dreams be full of springtime. Happy New Year!
