Wow, I just spent my entire day in my flower beds today. I am beat. I love it though. I am hurting already, but I kinda felt like it was worth it. I had to get these new plants in today! I ordered them online, and they started growing in the plastic bags, LOL. Last weekend I had to get the 50 trees I ordered in the ground too! Two weekends in a row of this and I am smiling, but hurting. I really love my flowers, it is something my mom taught me to do, but man it is only the beginning of the season and I am dead on my feet. I still have tons more to get planted. By the way, hubby and I live on six acres. The land was just about empty, very little done to flower beds, and a lot of grass to mow. It was fine 2 years ago, but with fibro now it is getting really hard to keep up. Hubby god love him is a computer guy, doesn't know a thing about flowers. He helps when he can, especially with the grass, but the flowers are pretty much my responsibility. Should I have not bought all of these? I tried to make things easier on myself by buying a whole bunch of Perennials so I guess this year will be rough, but should be easier next year. I am trying my best to bring property value up, landscaping can really help. We are going to try and sell this place in a few years to get something smaller for us to manage, but till then I thought adding all of this now would help. Besides I just love my flowers. What to do, they are depending on me, LOL! Maybe soon it will get easier, just water and weed. but right now in OH, the only thing in flower beds are the weeds that started growing a month ago!

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
