Ilana-Davita is taking the Trep challenge and walking. I’ve been doing gardening as exercise, so Ilana-Davita asks if it hurts my back? Links on digging without backache:

I think the key is I never spend more than ten minutes at a time gardening. I do it in between everything else. Am I holding the spade properly? I have no idea. I just noticed both those links are from the UK; is it because more UK folks are gardeners?

Deep Vein Thrombosis – one of the causes is sitting too long in one spot, like on a plane (I know someone who had similar problems after returning from Israel – get up and walk around on a long plane ride).

Ilana-Davita says

At the moment I get injections every day to avoid DVT. When I traveled to Hong Kong, I walked up and down the plane a lot and wore special stockings.
Thanks for the link. I have actually started wearing the pedometer. It is an easy to encourage one to walk more, even if slowly for me at present.
Your flower is beautiful.

Leora says

I'm glad the walking is working for you. Take care.

It's stunning. I planted some rhododendrons years ago, similar, but they bloom one whole week out of the year.

Leora says

The climbing roses on the side of my house are like that. One week in June of bursting pink bloom and then they are gone. But we do get a year of thorns out of them.
