Prettiest flower on Henny Penny Lane!! and right now, the only flower on Henny Penny Lane!!
Guess I will be getting another steroid injection in my back today. Didn't want to say anything, but yep, the pain is back.
Probably overdid it in the garden and the yard after getting that last injection. It just felt so darn good for that pain to be gone.
Glad for the little wattle fence, built by me :), while the pain was gone. I did manage to pick enough beans, while standing, for a dutch oven full...which I cooked and shared with my friend Nellie.
Shelby said to me just yesterday, "well, you can't be picking up cinder blocks anymore". "I haven't picked up any cinder blocks lately", I said, "everything but the cinder block, maybe".
"I want to be able to work"! My Aunt Nannie Mae, who worked hard her whole life, used to say that she wanted to "fall in the harness". Me too, dear friends!
and back to the loveliest flower here. Last summer when this Stargazer lily bloomed, it spoke to my heart. Mama loved these lilies! Out I went and bought a pack of bulbs and put them in this flower bed...
actually, this was the newly prepared flower bed about three years ago. Anyhow, I couldn't "leave well enough alone", as mama used to say. The rose bush on the left grew and grew and then early spring of this year I desperately needed a spot to set out that big peach tree that had outgrown it's pot up at the teeny tiny garden. So, a big hole I dug and in went the peach tree, which by the way, loves this spot!
now, same flower bed, and where are those lovely lilies...
puny and weak, struggling beneath the peach tree. If my back gets well, I will move these bulbs and put them in the front of this bed. That would be perfect! Location, location, location! Just had to say that. Those words actually fit here, don't they?
Wondering if you're still here as I ramble on. Better try standing up and getting a few things done. It's mighty slow going right now.
