a beautiiful day in the neighborhood

It was one of those clear, bright, warm days in the valley, just the perfect day to show off gardens. I drove around (can't walk because of the foot problem) looking at all the blooming beauty around here. Roses, day lily blossoms, azalias, various shrubs and trees . . . spring is definitely here. Lots of poppies, flowering almond trees, the last of the lilac; a feast for the eye. As for my own garden, it needs work. I will make a trip to the local nursery tomorrow to see what's available so I can have something started by the time the Patient arrives home next weekend. He left the beach today and should be in Tepic tonight. I won't hear from him until he reaches Gila Bend; our cell service does not extend into Mexico. But I am keeping a candle lit for his safe journey. The only thing that concerns me is the language barrier. He does not ~ and will not ~ speak Spanish. He relies on me as his interpreter. Well, he'll just have to wing it. He's a clever guy; he'll figure it out.
