On the inside looking out...........

This is my view of the garden from inside for now.  The sun was bright when I took this photo so the colors are a little washed out.  It is really very colorful.  I love it when the coneflowers, Rudbeckia and Orange Tiger Lilies are all in bloom at the same time.  The Tiger Lilies will be done after a couple weeks but the other 2 will bloom the rest of the summer if we continue to get rain.

I am feeling better each day.  My family has been fixing all of my meals and staying overnight.  I will have a live-in family member for a couple weeks so I have plenty of help and can get a lot of rest.  Thanks for all your prayers and good wishes.

I am just going out to water my flowers. How can I live near Lake Erie and be in a drought? All the rain is falling south of here. Hope you can fondle some fabric and make some new plans with your stash while recouperating. So good to see your post.

So, so happy to hear you are home. Your view is beautiful. I too am home for the summer—recuperating. While I totally miss being up and about, I have come to love the quiet and greater depth to my life. You are in my thoughts daily, and my heart reaches out to you, that your recovery will be smooth and continue to progress uneventfully. ❤️❤️

Good to know you are back home, safe and well. I'm sure your mind will be active during your recuperation, planning new projects and thinking of the ones you have to finish off. Maybe some hand sewing will keep your hands busy when resting. Lovely views from your window :)

We've been away for a few days so I missed the news of your surgery, but I'm more than happy to hear that all went well and you are back home again. You have beautiful garden views to enjoy while you recover and I'll keep you in our prayers.

After health scare/challenge, the world seems brighter and more full of color to me. So glad you are being taken well care of and let the healing happen quickly.

Your garden looks the way I wish mine did! i'm so glad you are recuperating and have someone to stay with you. It's important not only to help you, but makes the recovery much more smooth and seem shorter.

Family close by, garden greenery and cone flowers, they are all part of a recovery, and I am hoping you are doing as well as you would want.

So glad to know that you are healing. What a gift to have your family helping you now. You are blessed.....

After seeing the picture of your garden, I remembered that coneflowers stand for health and strength in the language of flowers. The abundant beauty of your coneflowers seems to be a positive message from your garden.

I echo their wish of good health and increasing strength.

Love. Terre

Sorry to say I just found out you had surgery. I will pray for a complete recovery for you.
I have been preparing for knee replacement on August 15th and have had no time for the computer.
Your yard looks lovely.

Take care of yourself and get plenty of rest.
