Sarah was suffering from cabin fever yesterday and her parents brought her over for a couple of hours. She seems to be stable for now but the edema is pretty bad and she is never comfortable. I'm so glad that her parents are here and will stay through the first week after the baby comes. Her family is very supportive and that's what she needs. She is to see her OB on Thursday for another scan and final decisions on how to handle these last weeks. Attitudes are all good and we're just waiting.
Harry finished building the arbor. I'm really proud to have it for my rose. It will take most of this growing season for the rose to cover it but I can wait. Below is a picture of the finished arbor. Notice that a Cardinal is already checking out the possibilities.
Should I put a stain on it before I start the rose climbing? As you can see it's in front of a really tall fence. That fence is around a neighbor's yard and isn't the most friendly view. I'm attempting to get landscaping in place to soften the view. The two plants to the right are Monkey Pines. The rose is laying on the ground behind the arbor.
