Garden Blogger's Bloom Day November 2014

 I have become Dame Mesticated.  I have brought the garden indoors with these cushions. I have resurrected my sewing machines after a sejour of over 14 years.

 These begonias are enjoying the rainy weather. They are thriving here at the front entrance.

This morning the pond clarity was unbelievable.

Hello and welcome to Garden Blogger's Bloomday where gardeners around the globe post what is blooming in their gardens.  The Chikki virus finally caught me and is still with me. It started out  three weeks before with a painful left ankle. I couldn't remember twisting my ankle but it felt as if I had. Then for two nights I had a high fever and both my feet were painful to walk on. I spent two days in bed. The third day I felt better my feet stopped aching and the mysterious pain in the ankle was no more. I felt great and thought well that wasn't too bad. I still felt a bit tired after doing things like cutting the grass. Then a week later a rash appeared on all body and it was itchy. I got some antihistamine to take care of that. The rash lasted for two days and then the feet got swollen. So I had to rest  but with daughter's wedding coming up I had to have some things done. Then my right hand started hurting so badly it
woke me up at night. Some nights I didn't know where to lay it on the bed. I got some extra strength painkillers for that. Today my daughter is getting married and I will be hobbling along and hoping that the pain will stay away. So far the hand is feeling ok at the moment. Apart from that I will live.

To see more blooming gardens please take a stroll over to Carol's at May dreams gardens. Have a great weekend my friends.


  1. Best wishes to everyone on this festive occasion. I hope you'll have a comfortable day with minimal pain.

    Your flowers are beautiful and so are your fabric blossoms.

  2. Oh no - what a terrible sounding virus, and what lousy timing. I hope the big day went off without a hitch (not counting the "hitching" of the happy couple of course) and that you feel better soon. Your flowers seem wonderfully exotic to a Northerner.

  3. Your garden is looking so lush and beautiful. I love your fish! I have read about this virus on another blog. It sounds horrible. I hope that you are feeling much better and that you all had a great time at your daughter's wedding.
