Just a Quick Update

I missed posting last week due to a broken ankle and the ensuing medical appointments and narcotic stupor.  I’ll be woozy for most of this week after having surgery Monday to insert a plate, screws and wires to stabilize the shattered fibula.  This is a huge gardening disappointment for me.

In addition to the fact that gardening season is just starting, if this hadn’t happened, I would be driving halfway across the States to visit a friend for the Nashville Lawn & Garden Show with a stop en route at Mary’s Greenhouse to buy new plants for this year’s garden. This isn’t quite an annual pilgrimage, but I have been going off and on for about 16 years.

I just got off the phone, and the amazing people at Mary’s agreed to ship an order to me if I get at least 3 flats even though they don’t usually ship retail orders.  Considering my usual purchase there, it will be no problem to come up with that many plants. *grin*

  3. Wow your February wasn’t so hot either Peggy! So sorry! I hope you enjoyed every ounce of that experience of ordering tons of plants from the nursery you love. You have a terrific positive perspective (I read the previous post too) and will manage to get the good from this event, so important always. hugs, L

    • Linnie, Thankfully February is over. The daffodils are starting to bloom, we’ve had a few nice days, and I could be a LOT worse off. Of course I have your blog entries to brighten my days when I get down in the dumps. *grin*
