Im back. I know i have not been in here for a while. I have been away trying to take care of some health issues.

I have gotten rid of alot of my plants. I still have some of the irises my mom had and the rest is gone along with alot of the other plants. Yardswhere a mess, but with help thats gonna change. Going to be moving but not sure where. It would need to be warm fir the joints.

I will take the irises with me and maybe get a few to add, get some strawberries plants, a couple cherrie, lemon, orage and apple trees.

Thanks. I have gotten really bad arthritis in my hands, elbows and knees. Also, my back has gotten worse. I have missed people here.

Welcome back, Richard. I hope your health improves greatly. It sounds like you have arthritis in all the parts that you need to function physically as a gardener, not to mention everything else.
