Maybe you should just get a mini garden tattooed in the middle of your
forehead????  ;-) LOL!

Reality-THAT SUCKS! 

Can you eat fruit that doesn't have to be peeled like berries?

I think the medical people are serious. One of my nieces oversees cancer
trials, attends seminars all over the country, Canada and Europe, and
she says with my type of cancer that I could get by with fresh fruit if
someone peels it. She is very serious about the garden work. She's a
gardener like me and knows how difficult this will be for me. But it
will be over by May. I'm not a painter. I like quilting and do some
landscape appliques. Maybe, I'll work on my Baltimore as it has lots of
flowers. You're right. It's not the same. I'm in heaven working in the
gardens while listening to a good book on CD.

Bonnie, This is a crock!! But I like the notion of your head painted with 
flowers. Have you thought about painting (on canvas) flowers, landscapes, 
etc.? Can keep you connected to the earth...and you don't get dirt under
your 
nails! But that's what's wrong with it, come to think of it. Kathy

What gets me is that this is the third spring in a row that I won't be

they don't want you in the soil or fooling with plants, such as roses, 
because of the fungi, etc. AND, I am restricted from fresh fruits and 
veggies for the same reasons. I will STARVE. 



So, I am planning to get my head painted with flowers.

Glad to hear from you, too! There are lots of us, survivors that is, out 
there. Remember Darwin's words: "It's not the strongest or the most 
intelligent who survive. It's the most adaptable." That's certainly not a 
verbatim quote, but that's the jist of it. My theory of survival has 
always 
been that I drive on the highway.
