This and That


We here in NE Oklahoma (aka Green Country) are enjoying temps in the low 60's this week. My flowers are loving it. They've perked right up and are showing off in full glory after such a long hot summer. I'm glad I didn't give up on them and discard them for having to water them like crazy.

Some of you have asked me how my eye is doing after cataract surgery. It is doing great. One week check-up is tomorrow and they will tell me then when the next eye is scheduled for surgery. For about five days it felt like I had an eyelash in my eye but that is subsiding. I have to use three different eyedrops four times a day and then next week only three times a day. Each week after gets less and less meds. I can really notice a difference between the "new" eye and the one that still has a cataract. The new one is so much clearer and brighter. The new lense helps me see without my glasses. The eye with the cataract has a yellow haze over it that I hadn't noticed before. I can't wait to get it fixed so I can see more clearly. 



This is my last rose to bloom for the season. Isn't it beautiful? This is my favorite color for a rose. I have pink ones and red ones but I love this particular color. This one I have potted on the patio.  That way I can see it everyday without walking too far.

Hope everyone has a great day and God bless.

Beautiful rose - glad you can clearly enjoy it's beauty now that your weather is more comfortable.

PS it really is not all that cold yet here even though the snow in the mountains creeps ever downward-- although when I was walking the dogs late this afternoon I caught a bit of the snowy chill in the breeze.

Glad your eye is improving! Hooray!

Wonderful progress report!

You'll soon be enjoying the colors of your flowers with both eyes. It's really amazing how beautifully this surgery restores clear vision and no glasses...woo hoo!
