Well, since we have been "enjoying" soOoo much rain I was wondering what floats your boat in your bog! Show your water plants, your water feature, pond, waterfall, fountain or your water theme arrangement here!

Thanks for the boatride to the new thread Blossom. What a lot of rain we have had. At least this cuts down on watering eveything. Hope your DH gets better soon.

So glad to hear you are taking a lazy day off in the sunshine, just sit back and smell the roses or whatever you got there to smell. Now that the animals are tended to why not treat yourself to something here in the cafe (don't drive tipsy) and just prop up your feet and snooze in the sunny breeze! Wow, that sounds nice, hope it is sunny this holiday weekend although I already have a ton of chores lined up. Just plan to stay home away from the cabin so we don't have to work at 2 places for a change.

Well, that cuts it, now I got pests in my bog disturbing endangered species...

People dont get it. You post it KEEP OUT, you fence it and they cant read.
People are so rude they think they can go anywhere and do anything int he world that they want and then they get mad at you when you tell them NO and toss them in jail..

I come out to the bog today to shoot pix of flowers and what do I find laying right next to an endangered species that grows here.. a shotgun shell from a poacher. GOD why cant people just STAY OUT.

that is so sad.
We have the same kind of trouble here in NZ with people not staying off farmland or reserves even when the no hunting/shooting signs are clearly posted...
every so often farmers lose stock & even dogs to shooters.

Well, the area of the frog kill has greened up with grass...its beautiful. Next year with rain and as the water table gets back to normal we will have more frogs.

The wild life here has been on the move.

Saw this cute little Sally the other day! She was scampering in the sand!
