How my garden grows.....

One of the results of my not being able to ride my bike due to my ongoing back problems, has been more time spent in the studio. Normally I don't get in the studio much in summer. I am busy riding my bike 12-15 miles a day. I used to leave early in the morning, around 9-ish and return home around lunch time.

This has been the hardest part of all of this for me. I love working in my studio but I need my exercise. I haven't been able to exercise since February and it is really getting me down.

I try to stay positive and the art helps. I don't know how I would manage if i didn't at least have that.

I see the surgeon this week to discuss what is next for me. I was supposed to see him last week but he cancelled on me.

Hopefully, somehow this can be resolved. I need to be able to exercise.

Meanwhile please enjoy how my garden grows......

I am sorry for your back, but at least your flowers are getting better and better! I like these, because they are not representing any spesific flower. They are more likely the idea of a flower.

Wow! The flowers are really sweet. I know what you mean about the frustration of not being able to exercise. My fingers are crossed for you with your appointment this week. I hope the answer is something easy to fix with a fast recovery!

So sorry to hear that your back is still keeping you from exercise-especially when the weather is getting so nice. But this series of new pieces is really wonderful.

These are all pretty all in a row!

I hope you get the appointment with the surgeon soon.

I've always had a hard time balancing between art and exercise and thought it would be easier once I retired. Now I'm kind of obsessed with as much studio time as possible.
I too have had my bouts with bad back issues but never anything that required surgery.
Best of luck to you on that. ....and say hi to my New England for me.
I'll be Maine -bound to see the folks in August.
Sweet Midas garden you have there.... and thanks for stopping by the rust farm today!

Such a small world sometimes. I was reading a post on my cousin's blog just now, she has a whole different sort of "audience" than I do and she linked to a blog where the woman is having a May Flower Challenge on Flickr and I clicked on that and there you were! Seems odd since I think there are literally millions of blogs out there.

Your flowers really are stunning! And I hope you find relief soon so you can get back to your normal life.
