Oh dear! I missed my post for October. I crocked my back up with a bad twist and have been out of commission for over a month. I was feeling too sorry for myself to think about anything else. Eventually with some good cracking, twisting and pulling from a local Chiropractor I started to feel better.
To keep my whining down to a manageable level, Dean said buy some flowers. My little flower and herb garden has certainly helped cheer me up. I had to get some tables to put all the pots on as I couldn’t bend down for a quite a while.
I spent some time sitting by the campground goldfish pond watching the fish and the turtles.
I have been growing garlic shoots which are surprisingly tasty on scrambled eggs.
Finally I felt good enough for a short walk in the Phoenix Botanical Garden. We lucked out snagging the last day of the butterfly exhibit. I just attached my phone to my selfie stick and managed to get some decent close ups of the beautiful insects without having to bend over.
Yippee!!!! Rose is in rapid recovery mode. A nice little hike in the Superstition Mountains was so much better than the drugs. This Saguaro cactus skeleton still had an arm hanging on.
Moving to another campground in Gold Canyon tomorrow. Keeping my fingers crossed and my back straight.
