I know I haven't been around much since my Dad passed. My apologies, but I've been busy with making a garden - and a garden blog. Just when the work is mostly done but for the maintenance, I'm off to Colorado Springs for a couple weeks. My eldest daughter is graduating (with Honors, no less) with her Associates Degree in education. Her husband left her a couple years ago for some bimbo, so she's been raising her two boys with minimal support when he feels like sending it, working, and going to college. I couldn't be more proud of her for trying to make it on her own, and succeeding - so far.
It isn't the best time to be leaving a garden, but being there for her and seeing my grandsons after way too many years is probably just about the only thing that would get me going.
Besides, it will be nice to go someplace where they have decent, normal weather instead of near 100 degrees every da*m day, when it's only May, not July or August.The heat's been killing me, but I had to get the garden stuff I would have spread out over a few weeks done immediately, so I could leave.
I have been reading and looking, but too tired from being out in the heat to comment or post. Took some time to get over Dad's passing, too. It wasn't a surprise, but I still miss him quite a bit. I decided to do the garden thing to sort of carry on his legacy, in part. Used to garden alot, but let it go when it started to get too painful, and then living here, too hot. I guess the garden, and the garden blog, have been a kind of therapy to help me get over Dad's passing.
Anyway, if you're into gardening and interested, the blog is here
. I'll be leaving Thursday, and get back June 5th or 6th. My daughter has no internet at home - can't afford it - but she does have a laptop with a wireless card. I'll check in if I can, but meanwhile...
see y'all later.
