Since I am barely ambulatory these days, Durelle has also become the photographer. Our "Confederate rose" has started to blossom. As a plant it is a rather ungainly and inelegant critter, but the pink blossoms are really quite pretty. I'll have to find out the proper name. It's almost a weed and propagates easily from cuttings. I suppose it would benefit from some well-timed, judicious pruning.
On another note, recovery from the foot surgery is proceeding. We did have an unscheduled return to the surgeon because an infection raised my temperature to over 101. This morning it was 98.5 and I felt up to cooking the bacon and eggs. Next, I'll slip on a waterproof sleeve/sock and take my first bath in five days. There are some advantages to not having a sense of smell.
