Bee resting on an Arum leaf

A Bee resting on an Arum lily leaf. The wind was blowing a southeaster gale, and the bee was exhausted.

Have had a torrid time of it, and am now recovering from a triple heart bypass operation. The situation caught me by surprise one Saturday evening last month, and I suffered a semi heart attack. Mo rushed me to Hospital on Monday morning, and I was admitted as an emergency patient. I sincerely do not wish this on anyone, and spent 4 days in an induced coma. I was stone dead for about 6 hours, and in a heart - lung machine, with both my heart and lungs stopped, and exposed to view through the sternum, while the team of surgeons and assistants worked. Luckily everything restarted when they pressed the starter button, and this is why I am writing this to you. The hardest part of the whole recovery system is learning to breathe again, and the recovery period is about 4 to 6 months, before one feels sufficiently well to start living one`s life with a semblance of normality.

Thank you for looking at my Cymbidium photo, and many thanks again, for all the votes

Go well
