Well.....we just had to take the plunge.
You are looking at 3 week old Bulldog pups.
Of course...we picked the white one.
She has a little spot of red on her tail.
We will not pick her up for another 5 weeks or so and that is giving me time
to get used to the idea.
I hope that Zippy will learn to love her as much as he did Bumble.
I know that is a toss up, but we are prepared even it that does not happen.
She does not have a name yet other than her litter name...which is Angel.
As soon as I heard that..I knew she was the one...I used to call Bumble by that name sarcastically (when she was running from me with a shoe in her mouth) and
it seems that it was meant to be.
And....yes....I KNOW we are nuts.
The gladiolas have been spectacular this year!
The color on this one is amazing.
My garden is going crazy with blooms.
Here is a rare picture of me in front of a giant sunflower.
All of these sunflowers are volunteers from last years seeds.
I would estimate the tall one to be around 11 feet tall.
Another shot of the beautiful hot pink gladiola.
Scatter cat posed for me the other day.
As you can guess by her name...she is not easy to find most of the time
when you do see her she it darting off into the garden.
Scatter is one of the best hunters that I have ever seen.
(Of course she did let ratzilla live in the barn for year. )
We don't like to mention that in front of her because it is a little bit of a sore spot
on her rather stellar hunting record.
Oh yeah...and what about that vole that keeps going for my potatoes???
Someone needs to quit goofing off on the deck and get busy protecting the garden.
Another shot of the barn/house.
I forgot to answer a question about the house when I posted pictures of the new paint color.
We did not build this structure, and it already had a living space in the lower half.
The horses live in one side and we live in the other. Very convenient when it is 10 degrees and snowing. We are slowly but surely adding things to the upstairs to convert it into living space.
Hopefully....one day.....I will have a nice little painting studio and office upstairs.
This is the largest pumpkin so far....Looking good!!
The mutant vine has now quadrupled itself and is really strange looking.
Of course...I forgot to get a picture of it!!
Butterflies have been all over my cone flowers this week.
I know you are all sick of seeing my flowers by now!!
I just can't help it...
I am in big trouble if these guys get out....
They keep staring at my flowers and I can tell they want to eat them.
So far....May has not broken into the pumpkin patch, but I think she is just working up a master plan.
Waiting until I least expect it.
Zippy is STILL trying to get into the garden to eat the vegetables.
He is so bad!
He even ate the broccoli plants that I pulled up the other day!
Gus right before a swim.
Taking this moment to give a shout out to my friend and neighbor who was in a serious
car accident this past week. She was driving home and a young man that was not
paying attention to the road and driving well over the speed limit (they estimated at least 70 mph...in a 35 mph zone). He went left of center and hit my friend who was desperately trying to get out of the way.
My friend has very serious injuries and will have a long road of recovery.
Hang in there MA!!
Hoping you get to come home soon.
