MORE FREEDOM AND INDEPENDANCE

Last week my two wonderful sons put up  IMG_1140a ramp off of the bridge going over our back yard which runs from our house to the deck.  This ramp allows me to go down to our garden to where my raised salad bed is.

  So on days when climbing down           IMG_1132 those  steps to the garden and standing and walking is not that good   IMG_1094                                                    I will always be able to pick my own greens from my raised salad bed.

  It's easy for me to go up and down the ramp with my wheelchair or my new walker.  If my walking is gone after I've been out front or I'm not good I can go back up the ramp by sitting on my walker and  push myself up backwards very easily.

In every way this new walker was a wise choice. The larger wheels make it easier for me to go over grass, gravel or bumpy dirt.  This walker also has a basket with space to carry my gardening equipment.  And of course I also can more easily check my plants like my Climbing Fairy Rose Bush and other plants on that side of the garden.

In addition it allows me easy access to the side of our house to check on the plants there too.Then I go around to the front where I garden also. As I have also  put in a lot of time and thought there too. So it's important for me to check that out IMG_1067 just like I do in back.

And Rejoice and welcome each plant that reappears or newly appears. Or like clip_image001the tulips opening up! Have a wonderful Spring
