bellflower


The garden I built and left in Missouri.  The white flowers at the right are bellflowers.
For most of my adult life I was a home owner.  I loved to dig in the dirt and make flower beds.  Age and wear and tear on the body took their toll on this body.  My husband had a pulmonary embolism with an infarction of the lower right lobe.  The lobe ruptured and silently bled for 14 hours.  He was pulled from deaths grip by a wonderful team of health care professionals.  He does really great but the episode certainly took its toll.  Last year we decided to sell our last home.  The garden flowers were divided among friends as we prepared the house for showing.  The white bellflowers are in Fran, Devon and Linda's gardens with a few still in my last garden.
