|I love the change of seasons and I love living in an area where we see and feel the changes. This is looking out from Kayla's window. She is a beautiful tree dressed in her Autumn frock.|
And in such contrast to the above the beautiful shades of summer are still in the garden. This is a Tecomaria capensis - Cape Honeysuckle. It flowers profusely at this time of the year but tends to give some flowers most times of the year.
I planted Dahlias last summer (2010) and they absolutely thrived this summer. I have never cut so many flowers as I have off this plant. This is the Dahlia Edinburgh variation.
A brief update on the back - the pain is unrelenting and constant. The MRI reveals I have no disk at L5/S1 and very little disk at L4/L5. The recommendation is disk replacement on both but if this is not possible then a fusion at L4 and disk replacement at L5. My head is better adjusted for surgery now but it still scares me.
