FITH - a small cheat

Cutting stems left handed is nearly as difficult as writing, altho am improving at both.

Before sandy sends her worst to us i cut everything thats in bloom - well, not the chrşysanthemums - which should be fine.  So, i have a few dahlias, zinnias, scabiosa, and the energizer bunny of the garden ... my aunts mini roses.*    The cheat is that i cut them midweek.

Thanks to Jane for hosting FITH.  Stop over and she who else is expecting you today!

*Dont think ive really talked about aunt agnes.  She loved plants and digging in the dirt.  She never had a planned "garden", but rather plants she loved planted ... wherever!  My love of digging in the dirt absolutely came from agnes.  
The bunny in my garden is standing in a way she so often stood that i see her whenever i see it - including when i view this blog.  The mini-rose came from her yard at virginia beach.


  1. So glad that you are back on your blog, and that your PT is going well. Hope that Sandy leaves you alone!!! Elizabeth

  2. Glad to see you are up to cutting flowers and blogging. And hope you are ok in the storm. Thinking of you :-).

  3. Just got caught on your surgery. My mom had that a few years ago. The first after was tough but she did really well after that.

    Isn't it great how a garden can connect us to loved ones. There isn't a season that goes by that Grandma comes to mind along with the Lily of the Valley, peonies and roses.

    Hope you heal quickly!
