Some of you have asked about my health and I'm glad to report that I am doing fine, much better thanks be to God... We are even planning a couple of short trips ---so if they happen,  I will have something to share with you on my Blog.

We've had some beautiful flowers this year in spite of the strange weather and the deer. I just hope we get a few more blossoms before wither arrives!

Hello Betsy
I'm hoping my earlier comment came through okay, it may have gone into spam folder?

Take care, lots of good wishes coming your way.
