Hello is anybody there?

I know I have been away from blogging all summer. I have just hit a wall and I seriously have thought I would just let it go. I have had a couple of sweet emails wondering where I am and what is going on. Am I OK?  So yes I am OK and I will try a little catch up.

In May I planted 80 Dahlia tubers. They came up beautifully and gave me much pleasure this summer.

Also in May my son got married and we got our first daughter in law along with her two sweet children.
My grand daughter had her senior prom that weekend too.

Then came my Dahlias which I planted just before I had my knee replaced. That is a long story of surgery and recovery. We can skip right over it. My gardens suffered a bit while I recuperated, The Dahlias I got from Eden Brothers were the best. I cut flowers every day and loved having them in my home. Such a pretty bright spot they were. I ordered and bought from other sources, but these did the best for me.

Then one of our granddaughter's volley ball team is going to the playoffs and she was named All-Star for her school! It is her senior year this year.

I also got a little time with my friend and the kayak.
That is a brief recap of my summer. My Aunt from Ohio came to visit and my Sister and Niece came from Texas. It has been a great summer even though it flew by.

Last month I was installed as President of my local garden club and I am looking forward to more time with all my friends in gardening.

I have another little bit of news too. I decided to retire to enjoy some of the many blessings I have. My hubby is retiring at the end of January. We hope to have some day trips and leisure time in the garden. We have both had fast paced, stressful jobs, so we hope to get to enjoy life a bit. Funny thing is now that I thought I would have more time it seems like days just fly by, but I am adjusting quite well and enjoying every minute of it.

So if you are still out there and haven't given up on me, let me know.
