Thank you so much for the all the warm and fuzzy birthday greetings and wishes! They truly lifted my spirits and and carried me through some discouraging days. Results from my recent CT scans were not what we hoped. More appointments and tests will be conducted next week. I held a pity party for myself for a few days, but now it is time to move on to . . . .
Currently, we are having slightly above-normal daytime temperatures that still climb into the low's 80's. The general rule of thumb is that pansies should not be planted until daytime temperatures are consistently under 80 degrees. However, these little flowers just always make me smile! Smiles were needed, so pansies were planted.
So far, so good.
They seem to be enjoying our sunny days and cooler nights, and not minding a few extra degrees of warmth.
The tulip bulbs are also puchased and in the refrigerator chilling.
I love fall gardening!
