Update Of All That's Been Going On

 

It doesn't look good for my sister  Ann , she is now in a coma , has been since Tuesday  she has not been  responding to any thing so now the Dr’s and a counselor have to talk to my brother in law and family to see what the next step is , in the beginning the Dr’s did say after trauma like this patients don't come back from it ,  so we shall have to wait till the counselor has spoken to her family and go from there .  I am praying for a miracle here .

      I have been keeping busy whilst all this unhappiness has been going on in the family  with happy things like  digging in my gardens  ,  playing with my Miggs  and my photography  and enjoying the  nature we have here as the birds of spring and summer return  , it is so nice to see and hear them again .

                                                     Here are photos of the goings on in the yard so far .

    Everything is blooming and thickening up and  returning , House Wrens are back all though quite shy with the camera for now , Barn Swallows are flying around chatting up a storm chasing each other about . Now I am  keeping an eye out for our Hummers  to come to my feeders .  I love this time of year .

                                               To my sister  Ann  , I love you and pray you have more seasons in the sun !

Hello Everyone

 

 

First I would like to thank you all for your prayers for my sister Ann . Ann is still in hospital and will be for some time . We haven’t been able to see her yet as she has still been sedated to help her heal as her body has been now fighting pneumonia  and her blood pressure has been all over the place , we are hopeful that all the rest will help her recover from this ordeal , so far the surgery has worked for her aneurysm and the other aneurysm  is fine so far . So we are just hanging in there with her  on and off  a day to day situation with lots of contact with the hospital and family for information . I am slowly  trying to catch up on all  your wonderful blog posts  so bare with me please  I may not comment all the time on all of them for now .

On a  nicer note  the Rose Breasted  Grosbeaks are back at the feeders  and the Wrens and Barn Swallows are around as well ,  now all I need to have  in my yard at my nectar feeders are the Orchard Orioles the Baltimore Oriels  and the Hummers .

The gardens are doing well and after all the lovely rains and sun shine  we have had  everything is growing like mad .

Just a reminder that this week is the week  for National Wild flower week !

I know the wild flowers aren't out yet but when they are take time to walk amongst the fields of wild flowers and enjoy their beauty and all the nature that uses them as a source of food  and if you can plant  some wild flowers to help our pollinators !

 

                                                                                   Until next time
