Some of you know I lost lots of weight and muscle last year from being laid up (avoiding details) and I had been asked how I look now.  Well, Here are a few shot of me. I had to buy a few things as all my old clothes were so baggy!
Now I am also adding some more garden photos for you to see! Much prettier a view!
Gargoyle like his spot and flowers coming up in pathway!
Love the 2 varieties of Bleeding Heart growing in my garden.
Fun to have a variety of color, leaves and shapes.
My patio apple tree is blooming and I will get apples! YEA!
Perfect for a close-up!
Different varieties of irises.
Hoping to do a short "wander" tomorrow at a local natural area, depending on weather!
I hope you all are enjoying blossoms and beauty in your gardens!


  1. You are looking good and I like your flower photos too. I would like to grow bleeding hearts, so far haven't been successful in that.

  2. My goodness, even though you went through all of that being laid up for so long, you got a bonus out of the deal. You look good Rose.

    Your flowers are lovely and I hope you enjoy your short walk around the natural area today. Being out in God's beautiful creation is always healing.


  3. I don't blame you for being proud of your slim figure! Looking good! And, as always, your flower picture are exquisite. ~ Alice

  7. You look so beautiful, Rose. Though you were laid up good came out of it.
    Your flowers are absolutly gorgeous. Bleeding hearts are one of my favorites, but they do not do well in the high climate of where we live.
