Signs of Spring

Post by To Dream a Dream »

The Indiana Barred Owls are nesting in their box & incubating eggs. The Ithaca Red-tailed Hawks also have eggs in their nest perched precariously on a high ledge above a busy street. cams.allaboutbirds.org/channel/40/Corne ... atch_Cam/
I discovered a beautiful red star, Arcturus, late one evening. Guess I had missed it all these years. https://www.space.com/22842-arcturus.html

Arcturus. Nice name for a big red angora cat. Or a liver chestnut horse.

Hi TDAD,

I love your signs of spring reminders. We are overwhelmed by a super bloom of wildflowers due to all the rain we have been getting. The hills in California are a gorgeous green. Seasonal allergies are a small price to pay for this beauty.

Hope your are well! I am encountering a variety of ups and downs in my recovery but I’m making steady progress.

So glad to learn of your continuing recovery, Linda. And the vibrant beauty of your CA hills for you to enjoy. I saw masses of gorgeous poppies on one of the newscasts. I love flowers. Our woodland grotto up behind the house is showing heaps of snowdrops presently. Our first bulbs to open & their nectar a welcome contribution to the dwindling honeybee population.

My husband is scheduled for surgery next week for ongoing problems with diverticulosis/itis. Have been blaming my meal plans, nagging whatever each time he has a twinge. Fortunately, his pre-op colonoscopy was unremarkable except for diverticulosis. (His scans had been showing diverse activity--inflammation even an abscess at one point.) Then he had recurrent c-diff, so it has been a roller coaster ride for him. Hopefully, he'll have concrete answers post-op.

Take care of yourself & prayers for your health to continue to improve with every new flower bloom.

This is a test to see if I can learn the format of this board. This is my first participation. I am a 92 year old lady from Arab, Al who has a very successful ileostomy for 42 years. I am old enough to brag on both accomplishments. Still having fun and still very active. I live with my kids since Christmas a year ago. They sold their home and I sold mine and we bought a larger home to take care of all 3 of us. My DIL is an angel and they treat me like a princess. I totaled my car last July and as no one was hurt in either vehicle I felt the good Lord was telling me it was time to hang up my keys. I did and my kids taxi me wherever I need to go. At my age we feel like we meet ourselves in the middle of
the road going to this doctor and that. I am sure this more than you needed to know. I like to hear myself type. <G>
