Thank you for all the kind messages. I’m recuperating and will be back in late spring I hope. I am taking longer to recuperate than I had originally anticipated. My facebook page is temporarily down also until I can keep up better. I continue to improve every day. It is baby steps but it is improvement.
The Flowergardengirl blog will be about kitchen gardening in 2013 I have decided. There will also be more stories about the South like this one from Thelma’s Out of Control Iris Garden not far from where I live…you can click on the photo to follow the link. But mostly I’m going to stay close to home this year and concentrate on kitchen gardening and do some killer canning and freezing. I’m going to fancy up my pantries with cute gingham and do some beautiful front and back porch decorating. I’ve had major health problems this year with many of you praying for me and thank you so much. I am on the mend. I was even told this year that I was going blind but through a miracle because of those prayers I am now healed. I was recently seen by a neuro opthamologist and he said my eyes have never been healthier to which my husband I nearly fainted. I can only tell you it was a miracle. I give God the glory. I am still weak from having a rare from of shingles that attacked the nerves of my face and was called Ramsay Hunt Syndrome….caused some real damage to those nerves….I am still healing and weak as I write this. I am still seeing a bit blurry and words are a bit mixed up but in time I will see just fine. It really is your prayers. So I have planned to be home more…..in my kitchen more…and definitely in my pantries more. My oldest son is getting married in May…so there will be a beautiful wedding too! I wish you all a Happy New Year!!!!! Thank you for being a Flowergardengirl fan. I am so glad you are. Let’s all get busy ordering seed! I will be posting lots of new stuff soon. I’m of course getting things ready for the porches. I’m already thinking spring. Hugs to all.
