On The Feet Again


Well, I am officially back on BOTH feet again :). No walker no walking cast/boot.............ahhhhhhh life is good! I went back to work a week ago Thursday, which was probably a bit early but I did it. My foot is tender but walkable. I took the dogs for a walk on Saturday and Sunday both, which was great. They thought so as well. Plus I was able to work around the house, I baked two batches of cookies which made my husband happy.

We have even lost a lot of ice here in Iowa. Our backyard was filled with robins all weekend. I got out the lawn chair and sat outside in the sun and read (Same Sweet Girls) while getting my Vitamin D restored.

I received some seeds in the mail today, so I will be planting some seeds this weekend under the grow lights in the basement.

I must leave you with a cheerful picture. I still wish I knew what kind of moth this is.

Dear Iowa Gardener, its great to know that your health has improved. I really appreciate and envy the kind of detailing in this photograph. As usual, I'll keep looking forward to all your posts.

Hi,

I just saw you left a comment on my blog and had to come check out your blog. Your pics are really nice and the black template really makes them stand out.

It's an eight-spotted forester (actually a moth which looks-acts like a butterfly because it flies during the day).

Thanks Don, I googled the moth and now know what the caterpillar looks like. The web site I found said it feeds on virgina creeper, there is virginia creeper by where I took that photo, it was barely moving the day I took those photos, I bet it was brand new.
