Peek a boo!
I see you!
Zoe is four months now and a crack up. She has so much personality. Now that she has all of her shots I've been able to take her outside for walks. She has gone on three now around the neighborhood and Oh Nellie! If all of her training goes as easy as her leash training has gone thus far, I'm in for an easy breezy picnic. I'm all for smart dogs who pick up on things quickly.
The other day I pulled out onto the Interstate headed south to look at some landscaping ideas. I knew the name of the place where I wanted to go and had an idea of where it was located. About the time I pulled on, this truck also pulled onto the Interstate in front of me. Wood Stuff! Wahoo! That's where I was going. The sign on the back of his truck says, "Follow me to Wood Stuff of Springville". Well, indeed I will and thank you for the personal escort.
We've since had this truck come to our house and pay us a visit full of garden soil that has been hauled to our various gardens by the male Native's. Much preparation, digging, planting, etc. has been going on around these here parts. We've hit a bit of a road block as The SM and I try to decide how we are going to proceed with finalizing a berm we are building by the swing set. We've differing opinions. My idea is the right and correct idea. My job is to help The SM see the error of his idea and come around to seeing the brilliance of mine.
The SM got more bees last week and our yard is now buzzing and happily flitting along.
It has been freezing cold the last two days so they haven't been as active as they are normally. I feel their pain/cold. I want to crawl back into bed and pull up the covers with a good book too!
But, there is much work to be done. When you have a whole yard filled with these blossoms, they aren't going to pollinate themselves, dishes and laundry don't wash themselves, dust accumulates, meals don't cook themselves, beds must be climbed out of and made.
Not so bad when this is the view you see while washing those dishes that don't wash themselves. Aw! Who cares about dishes. Let's go look at blossoms in my yard!
The different blossoms on the fruit trees fascinate me. The Asian Pear blossoms are more open and dainty like crepe paper and the stamens are also more open and hang like diamonds in a chandelier where as the blossoms for the apples are more closed and the stamens are in more of a clump in the center and stand straight out. Fascinating. Me standing around in my yard taking photos in my pajamas with a hat on because I have "went to bed with wet short naturally curly (messy) hair and woke up looking like a rooster at a punk rock concert".......... not so much.
