I started physical therapy at the Arizona Orthopedic Surgical Hospital on Wednesday and went back this morning. I'll be going for physical therapy three times per week until I'm back to 100%. My ankle is sore, but not sharply painful, as if I have been walking on concrete all day although I'm only walking a few yards at a time. Walking is getting easier the more that I do it.
This afternoon I made it outside to take photos. It's almost summer in Arizona. I didn't want to miss my opportunity to photograph the spring flowers. With the help of a tripod, I managed to make it across the gravel and dry run to the back of the yard to photograph the oleander bushes and Hong Kong Orchid trees. The red oleanders and one of the Hong Kong Orchids are in full bloom. The second year after we planted the Hong Kong Orchids they were badly damaged by frost. This is the first time in years that either of them has been in full blossom. There was a light breeze this afternoon, so it was a challenge to get matching multiple exposures to create HDR images, but I managed to with a bit of patience, then came back in, processed them and posted them to Flickr.
