To those who read my blog, please be patient.  Some sort of malware is attaching itself to the blog, and keeps popping up when anyone tries to read it, but especially when I try.  I will keep trynig to post and reach Blogspot, but meanwhile, I will try to post on my other blogs, too, for this one.  Go to any of the other blogs to read what I post hereafter for this one.  I plan a post on orchids, and on the recent oil spill.  Thank you for reading this blog and for making it successful. I will have more tips for you and more information on renewing and recycling.  I am sorry for the inconvenience.

Flowers and Gardens

After a fit of storms, it is very cool again, maybe not cool enough for the eagles to return, but still cool.  I am including some photos of my flowers from last aery.  I hope I do as well this year.  More health tips from health food store mags, and more recipes, but it has a steady diet of elder care issues and work, work, work around here. But, it could be worse.  Also, more posts soon on collecting, especially doll collecting, as recycle and renew projects.  I spent par to Sunday cleaning out our garage, and simultaneously washing doll clothes and vintage dolls  First, I  don't find any dolls for a long time, then, they are everywhere. I really see it as divine intervention, after I'm not feeling well, or it's been a horrible day, I find dolls in my path.

But, I digress.  Here are my flowers.  I hope you like them.
