Thank you so much to those who left comments and words of symathy. They really are appreciated so very much. Shirley, my heart goes out to you, love. I knew that when Mum passed away I would miss her terribly, but I wasn't expecting to decend into such a deep dark hole. I finally agreed to go to the doctor and get some help. Please pray that I'll be able to dig out of this mess soon.
Meanwhile, spring is all around us. The apple and dogwood trees are in full bloom. A huge rainstorm caused the creeks to overflow and wash out the road last week! A little bit of excitement. Yesterday we dug up a beautiful bunch of white narcisus we found growing by the roadside. I'm going to split them up and plant them in the borders, since the deer don't seem to have a taste for them.
