Thanks Guys, for all the good wishes.
Mrs. D, so far I've not had any of the issues you mention, but I know they exist. The forum is one of the nicest groups of people. I think everyone is so grateful to find a place to get some help. I'll stay alert to the situation. I have two other moderators to help if it gets too nasty.
I got out this morning and raked up a huge pile of leaves with my moon boot on. It seems the other day I couldn't resist the garden center and bought 30 new bedding plants. It just stirred my soul, all the pretty color. Then when I got home it dawned on me...hubby is not able to do any yard work and this idiot
is wearing a moon boot cast on one leg.
But you will be pleased to know that I planted all 30 lovely petunias and coleus. Had to do it sitting in a lawn chair and getting up and moving it frequently, but I did it.
So this Spring, our little woody house site will have some beautiful color.
Thanks again all you folks. You are the best!!
