Here in Laguna Woods Village all of the maintenance is provided by the HOA, including all of the common areas. It doesn’t leave much space for gardening, but Linda’s found a few areas to get her hands dirty. Here’s a little planter box.
And here’s a little area by our patio. If we add plants to the area we have to maintain them. We planted some marigolds for a border, but they’re almost gone as the bunny rabbits seem to really enjoy them.
The have garden plots that we can lease, but there’s a long waiting list and we don’t seem to be moving up fast. It’s amazing how many people enjoy gardening.
As for my new hip, it’s healing really well. I’m driving the car again, running errands, and starting to ride the stationary bike for my PT. Everyday I try to do little more, but I don’t want to rush it and face a setback. Slow and steady, that’s my game.
