on the way to recovery

We are still having wonderful Indian Summer weather here at the end of September. And I am getting better, recovering from hip replacement surgery. I practice walking up and down the halls and outside on the sidewalk. I'm greatful to be able to sit outside in the sun and to see things still growing. The leaves on the engleman ivy are starting to turn red/orange, they make up the mandala above.

Hardy Amaryllis

Speaking of hardy things it is getting time to bring in the house plants to aclimate them to being indoors again. I am always surprised to see this flower, late in the summer. It is potted in with another plant and it's leaves disapear after it has bloomed. So one year to the next I am pleased to see it bloom again. I am hoping I am going to come back from hip replacement surgery as readily as this flower comes back every year. In a couole of days we shall see. So this blog may be spotty over the next couple of weeks. See you on the other side of surgery.
