I have resurfaced!
And with Spring around the corner, the timing is perfect.
Thank you, everyone, for your concern, questions and good wishes.
The good karma you sent, definitely helped.
Our family has been through a lot since last June but I'm happy to say both of my daughters are finally home and that is all that matters.
When your life falls apart, one good thing is that you get to put it back together differently than before.
I have found the last ten months exhausting. I have less time to spend online and will not be able to put as much energy into visits, comments and my own posts, as I used to.
I still have my garden and couldn't stop (even if I tried) from taking pictures of its beauty. I will post photos whenever I can. One of my daughters is taking a Photoshop course with me and I will be trying out some of my new skills on the pictures I post.
I have been, and will continue to visit and enjoy your blogs and photos. I hope you can pop by every now and then to take a peek at my little spot on this amazing and brilliant planet.
Thanks again and I hope you all have a serene summer.

A summer spent pacing the corridors of the hospital,
No time for the garden or the computer.
Two of my children battling serious illnesses...
Makes me want to close my eyes and weep.
I hang on to the strength of family and friends,
I remember the past and reach for the future,
I cherish each ray of light.

Day after day
The lily unfurls new petals
And greets the sun
With petals of charm
And colours of joy
Content to exist
In her resilient way
For just one day
All ends have beginnings
All beginnings have ends
Let the lily
Be our teacher
Give each day
All you've got
Know that today will end
As tomorrow begins
For each day
Day after day

Crazy in love
In love with crazy :)
I can't help it... I love my crazy-looking monarda!
Whether they're dancing out to greet me with a sideways smile
Or trying to scare me with their bright red tentacles
They always tip their Mad-Hatter hats
in my direction
Sometimes I get a surprise "hat-in-a-hat!"
They are more Halloween...
Than Halloween itself
(Mr. Hitchcock would be proud :)
They gather in my garden
in unplanned drifting clusters
But infatuated as I am
I only have eyes (and camera) for one at a time
My first love was Mr. Red
I see this candy-pink fluffy creature
Which is a stunning hot-pink before it fully opens
And now there is a new temptress in my garden
Monarda Bradburiana is her name
(I could fall for her too)
Oh, what the heck
I'll be crazy in love
with them all!
