The Bee is Back Officially!
So, two months ago this traveling Photo Garden Bee suddenly felt horrible. Turns out I was sick and sick enough to need massive abdominal surgery. So, I headed to the hospital at the end of March and put The Photo Garden Bee on hold. To add difficulty to difficulty, my Mother unexpectedly passed away the day I was released from the hospital. So, it’s been a pretty insane couple of months. I was able to put up some posts here and there but ended up needing more time off than not.
But thanks to all the amazing guest bloggers who happily came to my aid, the site was able to live on. It’s been a very, very long six weeks of recovery made even longer by my Dr. adding two more weeks due to “slow healing.” Having such wonderful people helping really made my recovery nicer.
So, for the past two months I’ve had to work hard to rise up, sit and then walk and frankly I am still having trouble with the walking and stairs but am getting better each day. I have been hold up at home with a few trips out into the world now and then, but now get to get back to what I love: traveling to gardens! Above, I’m enjoying Lillytopia! It was fantastic!!! A post to come on Friday!
I went on my first road trip this past weekend and it was Great! I did a bit too much and had a small set back, but it was GREAT!
My younger sister and official Assistant Photo Garden Bee, Erika and I headed up to Pennsylvania Friday night and spent a lovely weekend shooting at Longwood and Winterthur Gardens.
Erika brought her binoculars to enjoy the birds: her favorite past time!
I had hoped to visit a couple of other gardens as well but I just wasn’t physically able. Soon, maybe a another month.
I want to thank all the guest bloggers and offer up another opportunity to see their work! :
Karon Flage: Community Gardens
Laura Segal: The Gardens at Roche Harbor
Noreen Freebairn: The Tulips at Longwood Gardens
Christine Otis: Natural Beauty in an Urban Environment
Kathy Jentz: Virginia’s Historic Garden Week
Julia Schmalz: A taste of Biltmore’s Gardens
Brenda Haas: Midwest Spring Treasures
Chris Gray Faust for her guest blog back in February: The Thomas Edison and Henry Ford Estates
and those upcoming bloggers who are still out there including Steve Ray and Erika Malmgren! Now, If I haven’t responded to a guest blogging entry that means I never received it. Either too many photos attached or a file was to large. In that case, email me without the photos to let me know you’re out there! I am still up for more guests to come on board for a day! Just email me at email@example.com
Thanks to everyone for all your support, friendship and patience. I am thrilled to be back with camera in hand and helping to bring great gardens your way! That is why I started this blog. One of the best things I’ve ever done.
