On 01.02.02, I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. Too late for surgery, I had chemotherapy, which failed. In May the chemotherapy was changed and I was soon in remission which was celebrated and welcome and lasted nine years - until October 2011. There was progression in 2011 so more treatment was indicated and I am now back in partial remission. But I'm not only a cancer patient - I also enjoy my family, walk my dogs and am learning to draw and paint. Life is good!

Spring life

We've made it through another winter and it's time to plant for spring. I've barely started and have little garden beds in several places to prepare for the new season. I started with this wine barrel of pansies and other small plants. They look so sweet and delicate now but I know they will become bushy and more spread out in the coming months. It means so much to me to have symbols of life and growth and health and beauty in my everyday presence.
