I opened my eyes to the world this morning and as I glanced out the bedroom window, there seemed to be globs of something white falling. Put my glasses on for a better look; sure enough ... snow. It was a sloppy kind that had to be swept off the car windows and didn't last long, but it is still there up in the hills. The gray day is easier on the eyes, but I'm not ready for that yet.

At least I have an excuse not to be outdoors making things beautiful like Delaine, Virginia and Alan. Delaine gave me a tour of her lovely yard and it brightened my day. She has worked magic.

Re: Snow/magic garden |
I have a magic wand and hugh muscles that are very sore. But it is worth it for the therapy and joy it brings me. Glad you got the before and after pictures. Things are still young because they were planted within the past 2 years all the way up until this week. So I see in my minds eye that things will look better every year. I had 2 grandmothers who loved flowers and they are smiling and digging with me all the time. Anyone else interested in a cyber tour I can send by email, but I don't have a clue how to post them on the internet.
Re: Snow/magic garden
Send me your magic garden cyber tour, please.
I'd love to see it, too, Delaine.
Sally, when I mentioned that we had a killer frost, I forgot to mention that it also was snowing that day. It was pretty and thank goodness it did not stick to the ground other than on the grass for a short time. It has been in the seventies ever since. Too bad all the annuals are dead and now the mums don't like the heat and will have a short life span. Oh well, soemtimes one just can't win. By the way, I should not have jinxed myself by talking about some of my eventful BEB past happenings. Last evening my wife and I were going out and I opened the door real quick. Unfortunately in that short time, my eyes closed and I slammed the corner of the door into the top of my head. It literally knowed me to the ground and I saw stars for awhile. It did not hurt much as I had the Myectomy there but it sure created a big lump and small gash. It scared my wife more than me because of the loud noise it made when it hit my head but she forgot how much of a hard head I have (at least she keeps telling me that). Anyway other than a little head ache, I am fine and will live on till the next experience. Hopefully, it will not be next week when I am taking my wife, mother and sister to Vegas. My wife does not like to fly to begin with. My sister has never flown and the only one who is not afraid other than me is my 90 year old mother who will go anywhere to gamble (especially if I am paying). Anyway, I just got a call that our flight was changed by about seven hours. I know my wife and sister are going to tell me it is a bad omen and we should stay home....Oh well....Alan
Ouch Alan, glad you are ok. My myectomy done a year and a half ago is so tender around my eyes that it hurts to pluck my eyebrows. It is a good excuse not to pluck them I guess. Next time don't get your big head in front of the door, ok? or we will be accusing you of being as dumb as a door nail(that is a old country saying and it is really dumb).
