I visited mom after work yesterday.  She was back to her cheerful self, thankfully.  Oh, she still moans and groans about her aches and pains, but dang, she’s 91.  Of course!  But she was upbeat and laughed frequently, and all was back the way it should be.

She still hates Tiger Woods.  LOL

I’m looking forward to watching golf’s US Open this weekend, although mom warns me that it’s an ugly golf course devoid of trees/beauty.  Oh well.  It’s still a major, so I’m all in.

Two roses down, 3 to go.  I’ve found a wonderful vivid pink hibicus, and the prettiest, littlest blooming plumeria ‘tree’ I’ve ever seen.  Sure, they could get the spider mites too, but if my current 2 hibiscus are any indication, both living right next to infected roses, they don’t get overwhelmed by them like the roses.  The plumeria will get planted tomorrow.  The hibiscus has to wait for at least 2 of the remaining 3 roses to be removed, so it might not get put in the ground until next weekend.  No worries.  Neither of these plants…well, I won’t be living here long enough to enjoy either in their maturity, but I’ll take good care of them for whomever will ultimately buy our place next spring.  🙂

Have a great Friday!

    I hated to leave my garden at our last house. Many of the plants had been from family and they meant a great deal to me. I couldn’t bring any of them out of the province.How fortunate to have your mom still. Wish mine was around. She’d have been 92.

    I'm sorry your mom is gone. Yes, I'm very lucky. I just wish she would do more, but she has (arbitrarily) blocked herself into her home, with every excuse in the book to NOT go out. Oh well.sorry about your garden.

    Nah, not too busy at all. 8 hours a day working doesn't leave much other busy time. Mr. Silver Willow is pulling out the roses, not me. 🙂 But thanks! 🙂

    Glad to read earlier that you’ve been getting back to being able to eat more foods as you recover from your surgery. Sounds good that your Mom’s spirits have picked up into a more positive outlook. I wonder if when we’re more physically confined if our moods can be more pronounced, especially if we’re having a down time. Your hibiscus sounds lovely others will likely appreciate, but sorry you won’t get to enjoy it if you move.
