I wish that some of the other family members would take on a little of the responsibility but I understand that Mom needs stability and routine. She needs her own space as well as the comfort of just a few people at a time. I'm just running out of creative ways to make things work.
I'll keep searching though. Just like the day I went to Fernwood Gardens a few months ago looking to photograph Spring Woodland flowers. The Hellebore plants are not easy to find with the flowers tucked under the leaves and the petals facing down. I finally found a patch with pink flowers that were a little easier to see. With lots of effort (I had a really sore knee that day) I was able to get down under the plant to see the beauty and details. It was so worth the momentary pain!
