Doc reckons the arm is more likely to be tendons or ligaments, so maybe I can expect improvement after 10 days, but he sent me off for x rays, with a referral to a specialist, for my very arthritic right knee instead. Hope it just means cleaning some bits out and not a knee replacement.
Irises can be as beautiful as orchids I think but of the 3 I think roses are the best value perhaps with their repeat flowering. Oh, a good friend came out and mowed my house yard for me and he was telling us of a woman in town who has a lot of irises. I might just introduce myself and see if she'd like to swap some rhizomes. (I always knew they would be another gardening addiction. LOL. )
