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!

It's been months and months of waiting for this Hardy Hibiscus to finally burst into bloom, but this morning it happened! There are numerous buds on all the plants and others look like they'll pop open by the weekend. But this one, this was the first! It lives next to the chickens and is supposedly a variety that will winter over well in northern California. I'll be watching.
