Well, it has been a few years since my last post. Since then we have moved to a small town and I have started on a new yard.
The last couple of years have had some challenges. In the fall of 2010 I suffered from a close call of multiple pulmonary emboli; 4 large blood clots passed through my heart into my lungs. I have recovered from that incident, but I will be on anti coagulants for the rest of my life to prevent a recurrence. I continue to battle my Crohn's almost daily, but I am part of a study for a new drug that seems to have some positive results so far.
Last year, our oldest son was diagnosed with Asperger's. His condition has been suspected by us for a couple of years, but due to some school help that only comes with an official diagnosis, we decided to see a doctor to make it official.
However, back to the topic at hand:
It struck me that this is an odd time of year to restart my blog, since it is mainly garden focused, but the fall colours are really quite brilliant this year.
