Walk, Celandine and Camellia

14 Mar

1   This afternoon, I did my first unsupported walk in months and months – no stick, no crutch and I did pretty well though I did find it hard work. It’s been a bitter day but I became very warm as I walked, only down the road, through the park, up the lane, along Lovers’ Lane and up along our road but it felt like miles! I actually cannot remember when I last walked anywhere without a stick and I feel very happy! The lovely Mr S was with me of course, full of encouragement and helping me to keep my gait correct to avoid any hint of limping. I have limped for so long that I really have to concentrate to walk well. I’m getting there.

2   Along Lovers’ Lane there were dozens of brightly yellow Celandines and the Three Cornered Leeks were almost open.



3   Just on the corner of the lane and our road is a splendid Camellia bush, just smothered in blossoms.

    That’s fantastic you have made such good progress! We have a lovers lane in Sussex, I met Hubby there for our first date. It was at the end of his road so I used it every time I went to his home! X

    Well done, such a step forward! I know how it feels as I went through it with a knee replacement 8 years ago. I have to admit to a soft spot for Celandines and we grow a few cultivars in our garden. The wild one though is simply beautiful. They have a gloss to their flowers not seen in many other plants.

      You are right about the gloss, very special. Hope you recovered well with your knee. Thank you for the encouragement. It hasn’t been as hard as I had imagined though there is still work to be done, especially building up stamina again. Al. The best to you 🙂

    Fabulous and well done! You’re so right, walking with a limp becomes a habit one has to break after the op. I had a walking mantra which reminded me to keep an even rhythm. You’ve done brilliantly. 😀

    Happy to hear of your walk. All of us should get off our —- and get going. Oh…I’ve already done my twenty paces. (from the dining table to the computer )
