Hazards of Gardening

I got Roses for Valentine's Day. Here I am in front of the raised flower bed I planted this weekend.

The splint is for my newly broken wrist! After planting the new roses, I was pretty tired. I was backing up to admire my work and I tripped over a rake and fell, landing with all my weight on my right wrist. Very painful. That was Sunday afternoon and I tried ice, elevation and compression all night but it kept getting more painful so R. took me to the emergrncy room at 5AM Monday. They took Xrays. Yes it is a fracture and it goes to the joint and may require surgery. I'll know more tomorrow.
Meanwhile, I'm on pain meds and feeling better. Hope the roses like their new home!
