A Little Catching Up...

Dear Friends,

Can't wait to tell you that the injection in my aching back is done...and done! It was scary, but then what doesn't scare me!  The procedure really didn't take that long and thankfully, my pain is gone.  I have to take it easy for a couple of days. But like Karen over at Wyndson Farm said, I am chomping at the bit! Ready to get going, in the garden, and mowing this weedy yard too!


Mlle Cecile Brunner "Buttonhole Rose"

Bickett enjoying the pond early this morning. The rose bush has simply gotten out of hand. I don't want to cut it back...the tiny pink roses are much too pretty and it will be in bloom soon. Need to find some way to lift it up higher over the little foot bridge and high enough over Poppy's head so there wont be a fuss every time he and Eli cross the bridge. Another project waiting on my list.


Loving the pond too, the duckies.


and down the path to Bun Bun's play pen...


Have you ever seen such a "Popeye" looking little house. Walking Bun Bun from his hutch up in the goat lot to his play pen down near the pond every morning, then bringing him back every night was work, and tiring. Before my back problem started I had set up this house inside the pen so Bun Bun would be safe from predators and could stay overnight.

 Bun Bun's pen is sturdy and safe.

Bun Bun's big feet. Had to post this one again. His feet so darn cute!

While we're at it, the baby chicks are growing.
We moved them to a safer pen. We have raised lots of baby chicks here, but have never raised a chick in the lot behind the chicken house. I really think there is big snake living under something, maybe even the chicken house, and now that the weather has warmed up, well snakes will be coming out. These tiny babies would hardly be a mouthful!


So going back up the path...I enjoy walking under the snowball bush...so glad it survived the cold!


and here comes Smokey to meet us.

Better get back inside. I'm supposed to be taking it easy.  Thank you for visiting today. This is a good day!

Love,
Henny

  1. So happy to hear you are pain-free once again Henny !
    Take it slowly, because if you have been given a steroid injection it needs time to allow the inflammation around those discs to heal, and you could irritate them further by overworking.
    Bun Bun is the sweetest bunny, I love those feet :)
    Your flowers are so very pretty, that Snowball bush is exquisitely gorgeous.
    Hi Smokey....are you happy now your momma is back in the garden ?
    Stay well Henny,
    Hugs,

  2. That's wonderful that you are pain free once again! I enjoyed the walk around your yard. BunBun is a lucky bunny to have such a nice playground to spend his days in. Take it easy and enjoy your day. You don't want to have a relapse!

  5. Wonderful your pain is gone but remember the cause is still there. Between your pictures and your comment about 'chomping at the bit' it's not rocket science to seen another painful event in your future. You'd better listen to those telling you to take it easy, hard as that may be. Take care.

  7. I bet you can hardly stand it, having to take it slow and easy. But, like everyone else I'm worried that you won't be able to help yourself and just go ahead and try to do more than you should. Your yard is gorgeous just the way it is. I love that snowball bush. Many years ago I had one and looked forward to its blooms every year. I am so glad you're pain free!!!

  8. I am in awe of your property, it is just gorgeous! And I love seeing all your critters - they are very fortunate to live in such a beautiful place. So glad your pain is gone - so is mine, for the most part - just 'normal' aches and pains now after playing in the garden too long and too hard!

  9. You sound so happy now that the pain is gone. It's like you are rediscovering everything after a long absence. But be careful!

  12. You must have really enjoyed that walk-about. I'm sure you missed seeing all the critters. I'm glad you are feeling better. :)

  13. How wonderful to have that pain gone. Are they recommending physical therapy to address the problem that is causing the pain?

    You be careful and take it easy. I know it's hard but keep your thinking cap on all the time and don't go overboard.

  14. At first glance, I thought that was a deer photo bombing the last photo. Had to bigify it to see who that was.

  20. I'm so glad you're out and about. Thank you for the stroll through your propert.y. It looks like a magical place.

  21. Glad everything went well with the injection. You must be so happy to be out and about again! All your critters look so cute!

  22. Oh that is so wonderful! What exactly does the injection do? Is it something that works for ever, or do you have to go and get another dose every once in a while? I can imagine with things growing the way they are, that you just won't know where to start. (which is my case most of the time any way!)
    As I was brushing Nelson last night, I was reminded once again that his undercoat must be just like BunBun's. It feels like I imagine his must, and mats easily. Last night I managed to get a big mat out of his side. He is such an easy cat to work with thank goodness. When my mum adopted him from the shelter 10 years ago, they had had to shave him to the skin because he was so matted.

  23. So glad that the shot took away the pain. You must be so content walking around your little "farm" and taking care of your furry animals. That Bun Bun is so darling. Love Rosie and Eli and Smokey too. Looks like it is a lot of work though. Enjoy your time with them! Nancy

  24. You have so much to see in your yard..probably just a walk about would be enough for you until you are healed. I am glad the shot is working.
