I went back to the doctor yesterday and was a bit disappointed that things didn’t go as well as I had hoped, which means that I have to have more test run on Monday. I still have a drainage tube on me, I’m beginning to feel like it’s a part of me now. I came home and sat in my garden, it’s nice and peaceful but there’s a lot to be done and I’m hoping that Lee would be able to help me more this year.
My garden attracts many types of birds, the yellow bird is one of my favorites. This one perched on my string bean trellis.
Fighting for a spot, this is next to the birdbath.
Lee wanted to attend a book play and a book signing by one of her favorite authors this morning. I wasn’t sure if I would be able to attend, I still have the extra backache to carry around with me. She insisted that I go since she wanted me to take a picture of her with Deborah Wiles.
The play was nicely done by college students. I haven’t read the book and this is the next book on my list.

The moment that Lee has been waiting for, she finally get to meet Deborah Wiles in person. Lee had 2 books with her, one for herself and another one for her cousin that didn’t get to attend.
They had a good turnout and the weather was still a bit chilly this morning.
The campus has many flower trees in bloom, but I’m not in any condition to roam freely as I used to. These are the pink dogwood trees.

I don’t think I’ll have enough energy to make it to see the tulips at Biltmore this year, and this might the the closest to seeing one.
And more tulips at my dad’s house.
I see more bees now, I guess the blooms started too earlier and the bees didn’t know about it until 2 weeks later.
My dad’s seedlings are getting bigger now. We should be able to plant them by the end of the month.
And I’m glad that I didn’t miss the cherry blossom.
My mom orchid is in the 11th week of blooming now.
It’s good to be out and about again, and a long day for me.
Glad to see you up and around. Btw…..love the picture of the tulips.
Thanks Dallas, it’s harder to get around these days. I guess I always take my good health for granted, and now I have to take it easy for awhile. 🙂
You have six posts there, Nye–all of them lovely. I always say the South does Spring well. The yellow bird sequence is so much fun–that triumphant little guy looking right into the camera just makes me smile. Your mom’s orchid continues to astonish me. I hope your excursion into the world didn’t wear you out too much. Take care of yourself, enjoy a little peaceful time. Heal.
Hi Gerry, it’s really pretty here in the Spring time and it seems to linger on a little longer for us. I’m glad that I get to go outside, staying inside too long was driving me crazy, but too bad I can’t go very far. I definitely need time to heal, and I realize now to eat less and my body will be a lot happier. 🙂
Once again, beautifully done Nye. Both the photos and your thoughtful comments accompanying them are lyrically put. Thanks for sharing, and I hope you feel better soon. Take care.
Hi PaNoy, thanks. It looks like I’ll be spending more time in my garden this year, some peace and quiet time. I feel a lot better after the tube came out yesterday, but still very slow in getting around.
For someone on the mend, you sure did have a long day. The photos are lovely and Lee looks very pleased to have meet the author. Take care of yourself now!
Hi Scott, I paid for it dearly on Sunday. Lee was very pleased and I’m glad that we didn’t have to travel far to meet the author.
Nye. I am so sorry your recovery has been so much slower than you were hoping for. You would never guess it though from your typically stunning photos and has someone told you lately that you are a stellar mom?! If not, they should. I think it’s very selfless of you to go to the book signing and take photos of Lee. Good moms rock! 🙂 Can’t I please send you a little something sweet to cheer you up? If yes, then please email me from my contact on my blog in the About.. Take care.
Hi Geni, thanks for your kind comment, Lee did a lot for me while I was sick and this is the least I could do for her. I went back the doctor yesterday and he said that everything looked great and took out my tube. It might be a couple more weeks before I would feel like my old self again. You know I’m a huge fan of your sweet treats but I’m afraid that your other readers might want some too if I get one. Thanks for the thought, and for now I’ll just drool on your sweet treat pictures. 🙂
Hey Ginger, I just wanted to say I’m glad to hear that you’re okay. The pictures are absolutely lovely and you’ve really captured the spring season! Take care of yourself! Oh yes, and if I miss it… Happy Lao New Year to you and your family 🙂
Hi Meta, thanks. I bet Spring comes a bit later for you guys. Everything is in bloom here and the beauty comes with high pollen count, not so much fun for some people with allergy.
I hope you and your family have a Happy Lao New Year also, most people in our area celebrate the New Year this weekend, I hope to be able to get out some. 🙂
Nye. Loving-kindness and compassion to you, you are the best!give hug to Max for me, enjoy the rest of your mini vacation. San
Hi san, thanks for your kind words. Life moves at a fast pace and I can’t stay sick very long, I’m actually back to work today. I hope my next mini vacation is less pain and more enjoyable. 🙂
