I'm not quite sure what vortex sucked up the last 30 days, but they are gone...lost to a flurry of packing boxes, potting plants, planning the big move and life-stopping pneumonia. In my life, I have never experienced "empty." My gas tank always has a reserve and my cylinders always fire- until pneumonia settled in my lungs and hasn't let go for almost 4 weeks now. Another trip to the ER for IV fluids, IV meds, breathing treatments and a lecture from a McSteamy ER doc last Friday seems to have sent me on the mend.
This week someone special asked me for a daylily picture or two and the request inspired me enough to find the energy to fire up the computer and enjoy some color for the first time in a month. And boy have I missed the color. I'm sure you have, too, and I'm thankful you came back after my little hiatus.
So, to recap, we have moved from Michigan to Illinois, and most of the garden came with us. This is what it looked like as the move out of Michigan progressed...there were lots of stacks of pots (thank you, River Bend Gardens) and lots of pots in rows waiting for travel. In the days before I moved, several garden groups came by to see the garden and me for one last time. Many daylilies were sold and gifted to new homes. It was a bittersweet time seeing people and this garden in its final days. I think I sold and gave away as many as I took for myself.
