Weedy garden.....

I had to take a photo of my weedy front garden to remind me it needs to be worked on next year.  My potted plants have seen better days and it is time to empty the pots for the winter.
My eye appointment did not go well yesterday.  I was instructed to drive immediately to the nearest Eye Clinic and see a retinal specialist.  I will need more tests.  I will not be elaborating on this because I don't have any details yet.

Your garden may be weedy, but that purple is delightful! Are they asters? Sorry to hear about your eye test. This sounds serious. Please keep us informed. Hope all goes well for you. Sending you cyber hugs!

Wanda I've been reading your blog for a couple of years. You have been such a great inspiration to me. Although we obviously aren't acquainted, you and your blog are part of daily morning routine! Know that I will be thinking of you and hoping that if you do have an eye issue, that is easily resolved/repairable. Eye care has advanced tremendously in the past few years.

Now that I'm on the road to recovery, it's my turn to send you some positive thots and a sprinkling of Goddess dust.

Unfortunately, I can't send any cookies or fudge. :(

Even the weeds cannot ruin the flowers... and I'm praying that even the eye problems can be quickly pulled out and eradicated.

Several years ago I had torn retinas in both eyes--separate incidents--and was referred to the specialist immediately, also. A lazer treatment quickly fixed the situations and all has been well since. My prayer for you is that you are also as easily healed of whatever is your situation, and you are back to your normal routine without delay. Modern technology is such a blessing!

At least you can grow things...I'm the daughter of a woman who actually killed a cactus! I will say a prayer for your eyes and a speedy recovery.

Eye Specialist can do so much for our eyes, in our world today. I have had a detached retina twice in the same eye and it was Lazered in office and I drove home myself. I will be thinking positive thoughts for you and know my friend will overcome this hurdle.

Weedy front garden... looks like every garden this time of year. We all get to the point and hope a good hard frost will take care of all... weeds included.

Hope your eye appointment goes okay. Had to take my father to an appointment with an eye specialist last year after he had a wonky test and got referred, but after more testing, things were okay after all. May your news be as positive.

Sue said...

Oh my! Blessings to you for your future eye tests. I hope all will go well for you. You will definitely be in my thoughts and prayers.

Funoldhag said...

Praying that all goes well for you, Wanda! Will be thinking of you and hoping for positive news from you. God bless. Carol

Hope your tests turn out to be something simple to rectify.

I need to do the same thing with my garden and pots. Now it is so cold I will wait til we have a warm up.

Those asters make it all look good......I dread the first frost robbing me of my color !

Denise Russell said...

Ohhh... I will be praying that you find out soon what needs to happen so your eyes will be OK. Anxiety is the pits, but hang in there!
