When I looked in the mirror, I found that the sclera (whites of my eyes) were sticking out further than the iris (colored part). Also, there was a giant growth/bump on my eyeball!
...I freaked out a little. I worried I had cough some crazy infectious disease...being all my patients this weekend were fighting weird parasites, infections, MRSA, etc. (...and I work on a cardiac floor? Weird, huh) Anyways..
Turns it, my eyes are just really fricking irritated & pist off at Palo Verde trees & Dust. So now my eyeballs have bumps on them. Going to the Optometrist on Wedensday.
So I"m going to focus on "happy". Growth.
Yesterday marks 3 years of growth. 3 years ago, I moved to Arizona. In that time I have grown a lot. Learned a ton. And changed, experienced, and found out a lot about myself.
But I can't show pictures of real hard evidence of that. So instead...I'm going to excite you with pictures of the "growth" in my garden lately!!
Snapdragons & Celosia (the hairy-bright-looking guys). You can actually eat snapdragons. So my plan is one of these days to make a froofy, fancy, gourmet meal - and garnish/decorate it with snapdragons.
Yellow squash (these pictures were taken with my crackberry...)
The yellow squash plant. Aren't those flowers pretty?
1 of the 3 tomato (heirloom) plants
The vegetable section: tomatoes, red bell peppers, basil, squash, & mint
The pentunia garden. I also have a few pots arraged with these plants
And then there's a bed of marigolds & daisies...but I didn't get a picture of them!
