Hello Everyone

 

 

First I would like to thank you all for your prayers for my sister Ann . Ann is still in hospital and will be for some time . We haven’t been able to see her yet as she has still been sedated to help her heal as her body has been now fighting pneumonia  and her blood pressure has been all over the place , we are hopeful that all the rest will help her recover from this ordeal , so far the surgery has worked for her aneurysm and the other aneurysm  is fine so far . So we are just hanging in there with her  on and off  a day to day situation with lots of contact with the hospital and family for information . I am slowly  trying to catch up on all  your wonderful blog posts  so bare with me please  I may not comment all the time on all of them for now .

On a  nicer note  the Rose Breasted  Grosbeaks are back at the feeders  and the Wrens and Barn Swallows are around as well ,  now all I need to have  in my yard at my nectar feeders are the Orchard Orioles the Baltimore Oriels  and the Hummers .

The gardens are doing well and after all the lovely rains and sun shine  we have had  everything is growing like mad .

Just a reminder that this week is the week  for National Wild flower week !

I know the wild flowers aren't out yet but when they are take time to walk amongst the fields of wild flowers and enjoy their beauty and all the nature that uses them as a source of food  and if you can plant  some wild flowers to help our pollinators !

 

                                                                                   Until next time

We had a grosbeak a week or so ago, but then haven't seen them since. It's a lovely day today, been out checking the progress of all the plants. Hoping the sedation and rest is helping Ann to recover.

I've been thinking of you and was glad to get this update. Sounds hopeful that she will be O.K. Take care as you stand by - it's so hard to work and concentrate on anything else when you have a concern on your mind like this one. Prayers ....
