I know the title says it all... but I really and truly am dreaming of Arizona while being stuck, isolated in my bedroom with pneumonia! It is going on over 4 weeks now and I am on round 2 of antibiotics, not allowed visitors blah... blah... blah...
I'm sorry... I am not meaning to be a complainer so it all stops here. It's in Your hands God. Amen.
So Calgary... yep... we have managed to get some snowfall and I am reading some magazines that have really got me drivelling at the possibility that this Spring I might actually plant my very first flower/butterfly garden. As I mentioned in earlier posts I discovered this wonderful little magazine called Birds and Blooms and then one more called Nature's Garden and I am not a gardener but I have to tell you I am in awe of what some people are capable of - I mean the talent it takes to grow these gorgeous flower gardens is amazing. It is nothing like what I thought where you simply plant flower seeds here and there and watch them bloom and grow... no... some of these people really know what they are doing and have planned out each section according to height and color and depth of each flower... it truly amazes me! It has made me determined to perfect this flower growing business and so I am reading up as much as I can to see which flowers and plants attract which sorts of birds and what to feed the birds (all the while remembering that I live in Calgary and everything does not grow the same here)...
That being said I have a wonderful friend who is going to come over and help me in the spring to plan out some options for our yard! Yay!
I think this pneumonia has really gotten to me because it's made me think of all sorts of crazy ideas for the spring... for my art... for my house... I have had too much time on my hands to think! think! think!
Pray for me if you will that God my bless me with healing from this illness and that I will be on the road to recovery very soon!
Blessings to all of you creative people!
... still longing for the warmth of the Arizona heat, the smells of orange trees, looking at all the birds fluttering from tree to tree... dreaming of Arizona...
