With the third Nor’easter hitting us this month I am able to enjoy tulips from the grocery store. I hope you enjoy them, too. For more flower photos check out Cee’s Photography.
My dietary limitations have increased so when I saw this lovely bouquet at the grocery store I said to my husband, “I can have that.” And we got them. There are some really interesting plants in the arrangement that we thought were fake, but they are not.
I have been absent and will continue to be absent from blogging because of escalating health problems. I was hospitalized again for depression, mostly so we could safely change one of my main medications. While there I was tentatively diagnosed with endometriosis. So, my high pain tolerance has led to a late diagnosis for this and that is not good. Wednesday I meet with the newest doctor to see about surgery. My life is full of pain and there doesn’t seem to be much they can do if surgery doesn’t work. If you pray, please pray for me and for everyone who is living with chronic pain.

Sorry for my absence of late from my blog and from all of yours. I’m continuing to have health challenges that limit my activity. I have to choose where to spend my energy and one of my best friends was in town this past weekend. Getting ready and having adventures with her took all that I had. I will be back later this week. I hope you have a beautiful day.
I’m not 100% sure these are the same zinnia, but I took the lower one in the evening and the upper one in bright morning light. I find the differences interesting. For more flowers check out Cee’s Flower of the Day.
Last night and this morning I went to the Frelinghuysen Arboretum and took pictures of leaves and flowers. I like to see what the difference in light does for the photo. I also took pictures of my hydrangeas. These flank my front door.
I like how different these look. To me, the top one is about the interaction between light and blooms and the bottom one is more about the textures of the flower. I hope you have a beautiful day.
I had a difficult day today and my husband and I went to the Frelinghuysen Arboretum near our house. I needed some movement, beauty, and nature. I also needed to focus on something outside myself. I found these 2 roses that have a lot in common, but a lot that is unique. To see more flower photos check out Cee’s Flower of the Day.
