Multiple Sclerosis

Grateful living is important in the world because in our constant pursuit of more and better we can easily lose sight of the riches that lay right in front of us and within us.

A trip to Philly to see my Neuro.  The new MS drug is not for me.  More risk than benefit.  We talked about Biotin.

Spring Garden Beginnings

If you don't get everything you want, think of the things you don't get that you don't want.

 

~Oscar Wilde

This is a Passion Flower dug up from my friend, Vicki's, garden and gifted to me,  How wonderful is that?!
Hostas in pots really do come back stronger some years.
Outdoor succulents on a shell from the fair Bruce and I went to last week.  A lovely memorial for a great day.  We have an Amish market and a Church Farmers Market tomorrow.

“Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.”

― Robert Louis Stevenson

 
 
Bruce bought me blood oranges at Christmas.  One of them had 3 seeds.  Just as I had given up hope, one tiny plant finally broke through the surface and a week later we have the first true leaves!

ZOO DAYS

“Zoo: An excellent lace to study the habits of human beings”

  ― Evan Esar

We have a family pass to the Philadelphia Zoo, A very large group of us go often. The meerkats have always been my favorite. These little African birds were very friendly, staying one step ahead of my wheelchair.

Thanks for stopping by. God bless.

March 2017

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

  ~Henry Stanley Haskins



Time moves on. Happier than I have ever been, this is a good marriage. The MS progresses but I fight.  I lost my physical therapist, he moved on to more pay, a job closer to his home. Now we start over again.

Look Who Came For Dinner

Fear the vulture, and the vulture will come.  Fear nothing, and you are the vulture,

Suzy Kassem

 
 
I looked out the French doors to see this bird.  He remained just so until Freddie Peepers (a wild cat Dear Husband feeds) spotted him and decided this could be dinner on bird feet.  Very interesting face, don't you think?  We do feed birds, just not these.

Spring is Here

“Every day may not be good... but there's something good in every day”

― Alice Morse Earle

I am ready for Spring.  This Bleeding Heart was a $1 special at Lowes last year, I am very proud of it.  Turned out much better than I thought it would after the first winter in the ground.  It is well mulched.
These are a new kind of chives for me.  Instead of sending up blossoms, it sends up tiny plants much like an Egyptian Walking Onion.  I bought the plants last year from Burpees after having read an article about them.  Dear Husband is going to help me bend wire so I can peg the little plantlets into pots to start new plants to share.
The little plantlet. I feel so proud.  They are doing just what was advertised.

I told my Husband a month or so ago that the pole the wren house was on was crooked.  Last week he decided to try straightening it.  The little wren came flying out, probably off her eggs, cussing up a storm. She flew up in the tree right above, flying from limb to limb and chirping in short bursts, most likely asking just what he thought he was doing! She did eventually go back in. She blocked the door. Not a happy camper and you should have seen his face.
