The beauty of a weed

Even I can find the beauty in a weed and it’s flowers.

I love taking pictures of flowers but especially using my macro lens because it shows all the little details we might not see otherwise.

These are some of my favorite weeds to take pictures of. They are called ” Daisy Fleabane” but the flowers are truly amazing when you look at them up close.

Week Four and Five

Radiation has been flying right along week 4 and 5 are now completed.

I am still turning reddish purple but only one small crack in the skin so far. It is very irritating and starting to get itchy. I am not sure what is worse under my arm or my neck both are in the creases of the skin.

I have 9 treatments left only one full radiation and the other 8 are targeted at where the tumor was at. They told me the burn areas will start healing while this is going on.

My bone scan results were a bit odd and I have not gotten to talk to my oncologist yet.

I had one 10 years ago and had a decrease of 13.4% of the Axial Lumbar.The left femoral neck had an increase of 7.8%. Now how did that happen?

Impression stated: Osteopenia of the lumbar spine. The way I understand this it means the step before Osteoporosis but not bad enough to be diagnosed Osteoporosis.

Calcium and exercise should improve this and once my burns are healed I will get back on track with that. At this time sweat really irritates the burn areas.

I have been able to do a little photography but just have to limit the sun exposure.

I wanted to say a special thank you to my family and friends that have been there for me through this whole ordeal.

I am still fighting like a girl.

Spring is in the air

Today is the first day of spring and pink is such a great color.

Our azaleas started blooming about two weeks ago and they have been stunning this year. Normally the March winds blow off all the blooms but that did not happen this time so we have really gotten to enjoy them.

Happy Spring everyone.

Clover and bees

When we had the hurricane last year the planes were so busy spraying for mosquitos that the spray killed many bee hives.

These pictures are of the clover in our pasture and I only saw two honey bees when I was out there. I am sure there are more but I use to lay down in the grass and have them all around me.

Bees are very important to us and our environment. The way we contribute is letting the pasture grow up with clover the honey bees love the clover. I hope to see more bees in the future.

First babies born on the farm

The first picture is the mama goat before she had the babies.

These are the first babies born on the Shady Acres Rosharon farm.

These pics were taken at 2 days old. The mama goat was a first-time mom and she had a boy and a girl both healthy and happy.

They both have moon spots, the boy has waddles and they are both just adorable. Waddles are the things hanging from his neck his mom has one too and many people love these.

If you look back I bet you can guess which one the dad was lol.

The next baby goats should be born in May.
