Alas my lot in life is "you poor dear" After I rode the bike off the mountain last fall and sat broken and battered in the ER, the doctor kept repeating "you poor dear" -"Oh you poor dear!" Tuesday when I saw my doctor , her very first words were "Oh you poor dear!"
Sunday I was spraying weedy spots on the trail in the forest and a huge cloud of tiny blacks insects attacked my face. I hurried home but I was covered with bites. Within an hour my face was all covered with welts and both eyes were swollen shut and the itching was practically unbearable. Two days later I still looked as if someone has beaten me.... The doctor gave me cortisone cream for the itching and something to reduce the swelling. My medical history is a litany of weird injuries and mishaps.
But I'm back in the garden again-smeared with insect repellant and covered with dryer sheets as well. And my tree peony has bloomed and it is about 12" across.
My peony collection covers a very long blooming period. These ferny ones are the earliest. Mine are all oriental singles because we get heavy rains in the spring and the blooms stand up better to it.
I did go back to the thrift store and luckily the card file was gone so I didn't have to buy it.
Remember the soutache jewelry from the other day... Well I have a huge hug and thank you for Jocelyne Ausseil who found this fantastic tuto...
