Yes, be patient Rolling my eyes. Meantime you can look at some that I uploaded to the scleroderma forum at https://www.inspire.com/DaisyD... . Warning, I do have scleroderma, and some of the photos illustrate the medical stuff I am going through. But other photos ilustrate my garden, and travels. A few, like the hibiscus, and waterplant were things I saw at Longwood Gardens. Read the captions and you'll see which ones were taken in my own garden. These were mostly taken a few years back, before the groundhogs became a huge problem. Since then, because the blackeyed susans were so attractive to the groundhogs, I have taken them out and have been planting more iris.

One of the big things about scleroderma is fatigue. So I don't get as much done as I would like to.

LOL That, too. I suffer from old age fatigue on top of the scleroderma fatigue.

As my grandmother, who wrote gardening articles for Horticulture Magazine, and the garden column for the Kansas City Star complained, "I'm a young mind, trapped in an old body."

Gardening is in my genes.

Sorry to hear about your health problems, DaisyDoo, but so happy to know that gardening helps you to cope with such a tragic illness. Hurray! Hurray! Wishing you many more years of enjoyable gardening inspite of the constant fatigue, which as you mentioned is quite different from old age fatigue. I will be sure to check out your link after dinner and patiently await your others. Thumbs up
