As am I!

It will be really hard to get behind the wheel again. I hope if it proves too nerve wracking you will get some professional help right away. These things can have a REAL impact mentally. Try to get back in the saddle asap. Group hug Group hug

Sue, so glad that you weren't hurt more badly, but sorry that you will need to curtail your activities short-term. I love the geranium Bill Wallis, but the one time I grew it, it didn't thrive (didn't die either, just didn't do much). Sending soft hugs!

Sue, I would love to get some Bill Wallis down the road; I probably won't start major planting until the fall, (it will take me that long to figure out what I want to do,) but could grow it in a pot meanwhile.

Sue ...

Those air bags do pack a big punch. I found out the hard way several years ago ... Smiling I am glad you were not hurt worse and can still get outside for a bit.

Be well.

Smiles,
Lyn
I'd rather weed than dust ... the weeds stay gone longer.

Let me know when you want to come by Liz.

Thanks Lyn, I am still reliving that impact and I am developing a bit of yellow/green bruising. But really glad for those airbags, they do their job.
