SUNday Pictures

The tinpan flowers are blooming(-: I took a few shots of them since they are so beautiful(-:

Mr. Piggy planter. Right now he has a ghost fern growing in him. Which reminds me I have to move him out of the sun. Tomorrow the temps go up!

I love this plant! Cupids Dart. I risked moving it and so far so good. I bought it at my daughters FFA plant sale, lets see, over 6 years ago! Wow its doing great!

Well Mr. Fisherman says its a good time to throw a line in the pond. He is always in style with his rusty fishing gear. The hair is not so stylin'. I think he needs to visit a barber in the near future.(-:

I pruned the hedge yesterday. It looks so nice when it's all trimmed up(-: It grows so fast though! I could actually prune every week! I try to do it every two weeks otherwise it is a real job!

With A Heavy Heart

I put on my shoes and headed off to the wooded area where the owlets live yesterday evening, only to be greeted by this...

I was instantly saddened to think I had lost a dear friend. I then began searching for my owlet and located him in another area he frequents. He then flew back over to the tree where the carcus was. He sat for me for a few photos before flying off again. It was time for his dinner. I am glad he is still with me, but sad that he lost his sibling.)-: RIP dear owlet!

Enjoying the Garden

I love to just sit and relax in my garden. Especially when I can hear the fountains(-: The hollyhocks are putting on a awesome show now. They are huge! My favorite re-do is the fish pond still, so I had to share that again(-: I really like it!
The little cream separator is filling in well too(-: I hope you are all getting a chance to enjoy your gardens!

I thought this was an interesting cloud formation! I took this picture on Sunday evening.
It has been a lot warmer. Summer has arrived here! I am happy, but then again I hate when that heat hits, because that means the flowers are fighting for their lives! Water, Water, Water!!!!

1st Rattlesnake of the Season

My granddog alerted to this snake while we were outside this afternoon. Lucky thing he was on his leash. Jack was not. I had to calmly call him over to me and get them out of the area before I could go back and get the snake. Jack would want to shake it. Lucky for me it all worked out.

Is Winter Finally Over?

The weather man thinks so!
I love the rain, but its been raining forever! It has also been cold! I have been wearing a coat to walk the dogs and or a sweatshirt most of the time. So strange. The plants love it though! They have grown so much. Now I just need to see flowers! Of course this means I need to do some serious mowing! The grass loved the rain too!
