It’s time to check out the beauty of Nature. Time to follow up and wrap up our week and get ready for a busy weekend!
Going back a week ago…Sue said “maybe you were thinking about spring?”
Yes, I’d left late spring, early summer behind in the low country and come to observe the struggle to welcome spring into the high country. The tulips were a cheery sign in our dining room.
Molly wanted to know if I found any good scents…
Oh yes!!! Turkey are frequent visitors…sometimes deer or bear…Sometimes I pick up scents I don’t recognize…We also have bobcats and coyotes, though I’ve never seen them…My Humans don’t know of any nearby neighbors sighting either of them. Of course we have the occasional squirrels and chipmunks.
Actually, since I find the water fowl and birds for my Human to photograph, I know better than to chase them…See retrievers have to learn to “honor” as do competitive obedience or agility dogs. We learn never to go to “retrieve” until released and commanded to bring back whatever.
The only mischief was that I tried to wade out with my tennis ball to the little ducklings. I thought maybe they’d like to play…I returned as soon as my Human whistled.
As you can see in the picture of the ducks above, one of the papa ducks wasn’t pleased with me.
Goose asked me “isn’t it great and serene to watch life happen?”
Oh Goose, God gave us everything we need to be happy. The only thing we have to do is enjoy and appreciate it.
It’s time to stop, take a quiet moment and appreciate the beauty around us.
My Blogville friend from “lil’ ol’ England”, Penny, told me that duck is a form of endearment there…like: “are you alright, duck?”
Goose wanted to know how come the Human Papa didn’t have to clean the floor…after I messed it up with the bone he’d given me. Thunder and crew of the 2 browndawgs said “what’s a dirty floor with such a snack to be had!”
First, I agree with the brown dawgs…Second, I guess it never occurred to my Human Mama to ask my Human Papa to clean the floor…
Guess I have a lot to learn about eatin’ bones.
Sam wants to know if the flowering tree is a Lady Bankshire rose.
I’m afraid not…it isn’t even a rose…but these are Lady Bankshires…
Heart Like a Dog asked “it’s so beautiful, it’s worth the wait isn’t it?
Y’all come back now.
