tending to my garden

About two weeks ago I received a telephone call from Witt asking when I was planning on visiting Mother that day. I stopped by the tire store where he was having his tires rotated and picked him up on the way. Then three of my children and I spent over an hour together with Mother.  The lingering warm days allowed us to take her outside to the courtyard. It is quite an ordeal to get her from her bed to the wheelchair since she is no longer able to stand on her feet, but they have the niftiest equipment available to make it  possible.

We have spent many hours in this courtyard since my mother's arrival at this place. 
On this day I snipped back the languishing pansies. I find that I have several gardens to tend.

 Flexibility is the key.
