DonfromPA's blog: Temperatures Warming Up a Bit

Posted on Mar 12, 2019 7:42 AM

Wow! Forty degrees today and 50 forecast for tomorrow. Seeds ordered from Baker Creek and Swallowtail arrived yesterday and not waiting for any more at this point. Still eyeing pictures of appealing looking asters, four o'clocks and calendulas - and trying my best not to weaken, but I can't make any promises. Well, went to doctor's appointment yesterday. As luck would have it, my family doctor was not in for the day - so went to one of his associates for consultation. The doctor not sure whether I'm suffering from shingles or not so prescribed some pain pills and anti-viral ones. Since my pain has gone away, I feel shingles is not my malady, but something else. When I had shingles in my 20's and from what others say, pain does not go away with shingles. Anyhow, my left eye (unfortunately my good one that does most of my seeing) is nearly swelled shut and am having a little difficulty in seeing. Glad though that my four-day headache went away. Anxious for spring to arrive as I am going to try to dig up a few small areas for flower gardening. Don't know how that will work as I tire easily from any kind of physical exertion, but I will take it easy. Last year we had more containers than ever on our patio and I thought it was a little too much. If I don't create some inground gardening space, I will need even more containers than before. About time to leave for our weekly game of Hand and Foot (fun card game) with several of our friends. My wife and I also belong to a couple of 500 Bid card clubs. Thinking about the gardens we had while living in Connecticut (2-1/2 years) and in Charlotte, NC (17 years) and will talk a little about them later. Might also talk a little about the gardens (mostly perennial plants) I previously had in our hometown of Meadville, PA. Sure miss the energy I had back in those days!
