Thank you for all the well wishes. I am like a kid in a candy shop. I have not seen this well since I was in 3rd. grade and and discovering things like colors that were faded due to my sight. Things are so much brighter-clearer-sharper. Can't wait for things to bloom this year. I get the right one done June 24 and am excited. It was a 5-/50 chance I could lose my sight altogether with the other eye disease but God watched over the surgion and he took care of me. Thanks again and I am so glad for all those who have had this done. It is like a whole new world.
Still doing great everyone. I am so looking forward to getting the other eye done on the 24th. My Dr, is so happy as he did not think it would turn out this well. I fooled him.
Polly-My Iris are all coming up good now. Will try to get pictures tomorrow,.
What was the name of that grass killer again. Nothing like it around here so will have to get it over the net.
Thanks again everyone. This mmeant a lot to me.
Good for you Steph. I had my eyes done 5 yrs apart. How is that for being a coward? Except for a few siberians our irises have finished bloom. It will be quite awhile until the golden rod comes. Have to deadhead the 2 dwarf dahlias & the poppies, which gave up bloom while we were away. Even the asthma Dr. says it was a very early yr. He says allergies started in Feb. However he is a gardener so enjoy talking to him as I am told to take a deep breath.
5 years apart is a stretch. My eyes are so different now I hav to do it as cannot see with glasses on in one eye and can't see with one eye without the glasses LOL.
So you have goldenrod. I have wanted some for so long. I bet they are beautiful. Where did you get yours from??
I lost so many TB Iris this winter and will replace only a few. BooHoo. The Sibs and JI are doing ok though,. Did not think they would make it since so many TB did not. Strange winter here.
The goldenrod was here. Our land was conservation land (for 30 yrs) so trees & shrubs & goldenrod colonized the more open part. It is doing that now to the 'north pasture' 1/2 acre now that we no longer have ponies. The south side of the barn has our iris beds, except for siberians.
Thanks for the spelling of it Polly. I will look it up.
Lucky you Lucy. We have 1 variety that grows in the Mountains but I hate to dog it up and bring it home. I think I will look for some seed on the net right now.
