Welcome to ” Undisclosed Location”, where we seem to have rain daily.
Fortunately, it has given me time to read up on the care of Gerber daisies. My friend Isa’s father is in town, and he also has given me a few tips.
They seem to be working so far. I am hoping to get better flowering results this year than I had last year. It goes without saying that if you have any tips on Gerber daisy care and handling, please leave a comment: I am sure I need to learn much more.
Two doors up from me live my friends Ivo, Isabella, Matti and Luca…..I go over once a week to have Matti learn interaction with Kasia. She is the best girl and needs Matti to learn how to act with her.
Today is the first day of spring. Dunkin’ Donuts gives out free medium coffee. Ivo was nice enough to go out and get us gals our free coffee in the rain. What a Sweetheart! I especially enjoyed hanging with Isa and the boys. It is so funny to see how quickly they grow
Thanks Ivo and Isa….something to get us through the storm,
It started like this when Kasia and I were out this morning. We didn’t quite complete a half mile because we both looked at each other and mutually decided to head home.
It turns out we had good timing. About five minutes after getting back in, this was our view from the front window. It was comforting to be in a nice,warm, dry house. After breakfast, with dishes done and sitting down, I looked out the back door and this was our new visitor.
Sleet had joined the party. It’s like what else? Oh, did I mention snow flurries 15 minutes ago? There is never a dull moment here at Undisclosed…..
Stay warm and dry, friends! Be safe!
After a few days of immersing myself into Zicam cold stopping-cold shortening world of remedies, I am slowly working my way up the food chain again. I would be remiss if I forget to mention I used the neti pot to wash my sinuses out, also.
A big part of my recovery is thanks to my nurse, Kasia Girl. My buddy kept me company and made Mom get out and walk to get things moving. The weather seems to be the prime factor in keeping me from crawling up to 100%. We are taking one step at a time, or in Kasia’s case, 2 steps at a time. Our neighbor Dot came over and brought home made orzo chicken soup; crusty bread and chocolate chip cookies.
How can you not get better?
If you have been reading this blog with any regularity, you’ll know that this was the year I tried to raise Gerber daisies. The photo above shows a tiny bloom, but more of what I call Gerber lettuce.
From the end of July through Labor Day, the view on my deck was basically pots and pots of Gerber leaves. I let them be, and watching the rainfall amounts, occasionally watered them. The plants were definitely alive and green, so I had decided to let them be.
This past week I have been treated to…,
Patience is, most assuredly, a virtue!
My Zusher is laying down by me as I sit on the sofa.
It’s day two of rain, but a little better for my girls today, as Momma is home and not shy about walking in the rain. Dad tends to let them in the yard. Oh well.
We will be checking the radar for heavy perception, and will try to get out for a longer walk before any deluges start. It is a wonderful time down here at “Amity”. Cool enough to walk without getting a drenching sweat going, and minimal tourists.
We love hanging together, even in the rain. We all get a little exercise and can rest better for it.
It’s a good thing!
I don’t know if it’s because she had no weekend walks with me, Saturday morning notwithstanding, or what. I had the girls out this morning for their walk.
Normally, I call the shots, but most of the time I bow to Zush. She is old, like me, and I know that we really can’t walk like we used to.
Until this morning….
Zush led the way and seemed adamant about it. She wanted to go to the bay. So we went, albeit slowly, but we went. Maybe it was that the rain passed and it was 46 degrees. Zush was raring to go. And now???
I love both the girls, but my Zush is my ❤️!
