I’ve Been Away Too Long

The storms of life are gone, and it’s a beautiful new day.



Due to ankle surgery and some back problems, I haven’t been able to do much gardening this spring and summer, but am slowly working with small plants. Previously, I thought I would be able to do a lot of writing during my recovery, but with keeping my ankle higher than my heart for a while, writing, even on my laptop, was difficult. Getting back to writing has been slow. I have tried to keep up with your e-mails, questions, and comments, but I know I wasn’t as timely as I would like to have been. Over the last few days, we’ve been preoccupied with preparing for Hurricane Matthew.

Only the outer edges of Matthew reached here, and although yesterday was a very windy and messy day, all is well here, and for that, we are so very grateful. Our prayers go out to those along the coast, who experienced severe damage.

Thank you for continuing to follow my blog even though I have been absent lately. I have a lot of gardening planned, and a lot of good garden information to share, and will be doing so over the coming weeks and months, so stay tuned.
