|Lovely purple field of tulips|
This morning we ladies met at Lake Padden for our usual two trips around the lake. Lily had to work today, so she wasn't there, unfortunately. I managed to twist my ankle and took a fall at the beginning of the second lap, and now I'm sitting here with a throbbing ankle. It still works, other than a twinge when I first stand on it, so I think it should be fine in a day or two. I did go twice around, thinking that moving it would be a good idea. It isn't swollen, so I should be able to work in the garden with no problem. It would be a real shame if I were to wait this long for the weather to improve and then get banged up, unable to dig in the dirt.
The best part of all this rain is that the weeds should come up without much tugging. I'm anxious to get started!
Hooray for tulips. And gardening. We are just preparing the ground and planting tulips (and other spring bulbs).ReplyDelete
Sigh on the ankle front - I hope it heals quickly.
Gorgeous tulips! Our festival comes in May.ReplyDelete
Well...I haven't seen that spam before.ReplyDelete
So sorry about your ankle. I hope it mends quickly. The tulips are gorgeous! I always love it when you go to this festival.
Finally, my irises are beginning to bloom.
So you have some good things and bad things to report. Be cautious with the ankle.ReplyDelete
Wonderful tulip pics! Hooray for sunny warm weather!ReplyDelete

Gorgeous tulips! :)
Ouch, so sorry about the bum ankle. Hope it doesn't keep you from getting your hands dirty.ReplyDelete
Hope it is just a sprain or a strain and heals up soon, ice it and rest and put it up! Your tulip photos are wonderful! :)ReplyDelete
Dear DJan, it's a gift to be able to find the good in every happening--like the rain loosening the earth so the weeds come up easily. And the walking helping the twisted ankle. I hope it is feeling much better now with no lasting effects. Peace.ReplyDelete
oh dear...hope your ankle boo-boo is better now!ReplyDelete
We sure did love walking through those gardens with you.ReplyDelete
