Hope you're feeling better and back out in the garden. Those pesky gallbladders can make you miserable.

We have had a long drought here too...We're supposed to get a little rain tonight, but we need several days of soaking to really make a difference. NO fall color to speak of this year...everything just shriveled up and fell off without changing color.

Take care, Your buddy, Annie

Modern medicine is amazing, I could not believe how well I got along after the surgery!

I managed to pick up six loads of a mixture of leaves, grass clippings and pine straw this weekend. I actually got an entire truck load of pine straw bales that had never even had the strings removed. It looked like it had just sat around for a year or so. When I tried to pick the bales up the great majority of them just fell apart(that was fine being I broke them all apart). Many of them were well along in the rotting stage, which was super by me. I managed to pick up nearly 50 bags of leaves out of one yard. My neighbor also raked and piled leaves across the street so I took the riding mower over and shredded them all up, I had 8 full bins of shredded leaves (my mower has three plastic bins on the back). The great majority of them were not oak like I have but mostly maples and sycamores. They decompose and shred so much easier.
The true test came that night when I had no pain down my entire right side like I had been having before the surgery, I felt great (except for the shoulders and knees), but that is a different story.
