Hi. Am a grandma living north of Toronto in a small town. Love cats and beauty of nature. Hope to learn more to make my gardens lovely like yours🌸🌺

Looking perfect and colourful😊. Is the heat wave passing or not yet?

Thanks so much. We had a quick storm tonight but it is still warm. Tomorrow’s storms are going to cool it down for Tuesday. Cool overnight too. My hubby gets home from Michigan tomorrow. They had it very hot as well. 🥵 @gjones

We had a perfect gardening day today. Not too hot or cold, no rain and a nice breeze. We got so much done😊

Sounds great. I cannot do much but water and it was much too hot to work. I read my book and relaxed as yesterday I had company. Letting my cats in and out every 10 minutes was a chore. 🤣😂 @gjones

Your healing will take time but it will slowly improve. Try to relax. Cooler temps will help too and it’ll be nice to have hubby home again. My daughters would laugh at me telling you to relax as I know I’m not really very good at relaxing when there’s things I want to get done.

Morning Angela. Thanks so much. It has done so well. I overwinter it in a dark closet and it comes back in the Spring. 👍😍 @italydiva

Thanks for the pep talk Katy. I am the same as you wanting to get things done. At this stage of my life I need to look after myself. I have to be patient with my body as I tend to push it too hard. In my mind I am still 30. 🤣 Had to have bloodwork this morning and boy is it hard to drive with a broken tailbone. 🙁 @gjones

Diane I can’t even imagine trying to drive a car with a broken tailbone! Is your injured leg your right or your left leg? I always tell Glyn that age is just a number but I must admit that I think it takes longer for our bodies to heal now that we’re aging😕

Thanks very much Shelley. I do too. Last year I put it in the garden then lifted it to overwinter indoors. Do not want to disturb it this year. 😊💚🤍💗 @ShelleySnyder

Your red one was so pretty but I don’t blame you. I was so surprised when this one survived being closed in a closet with no water all Winter. 🤷‍♀️ @hebelover

I'll miss the look of them, but they were just too fussy for me, never could get the right spot for them
