Hey everyone, I'm doing better. Thank you all for your good wishes and all. It's been hard and I still cry now and then but I'm getting better. Lucy was my babygirl and we did so much together for the past 15 years. She really was missed by my husband and myself greatly around here. It nearly killed us both when we had to let her go. I held her through the whole process. Afterward, David and I couldn't keep ourselves busy enough to stop thinking about her. I tore the whole house apart cleaning even when I was in physical pain and David tore his tool shed/man cave apart and moved my garden shed for easier access for me. It's now in the courtyard under the trees. He even cleaned it out and bought new pots and bags of potting mix and soil for me. He's a sweetie. I'll have to stop talking bad about him.

David has been helping as well as Frankie. We were finally cutting down the frozen dead parts of my lemon trees and David noticed some green shoots near the trunk of one before he cut it. I looked and smiled. One of my lemon trees was fighting for its life. So I let David cut the small trunk carefully down to about 3 inches above the soil line and then I watered the lemon shoots with a lemon fertilizer mixture. Little buggers never give up. I also repotted my oregano. it was going great guns all over the large pot I had it in so I took it all out and broke up the plant into 3 smaller plants and potted them. I also cut several sprigs and tied them for drying. They are so much happier. The rosemary bush I had for almost 15 years died in the winter freeze too, along with my hydrangeas and geraniums. So I ordered new plants because the greenhouses out here in town don't have anything I want.
Well, I have a little puppy dog that is crying to go outside and I have some things to do too. All y'all have a magical day, wear your mask when you go out and if you haven't done it yet, go get your vax.
