Those are some fancy schmansy boots you got there Terri, wow!

Love the boots! Hope your tropicals survived Candee. This weather has really been a carnival ride the past many months. Keep that sailboat handy Terri.
Elle, glad you and the critters are well.

Laurel, DE(Zone 7a)

Well we did get a slight frost and they were covered so all should be fine. Just hope that is the end of it for a while, I am so ready for spring and here it is almost summer already LOL!

Yeah, that's what the calendar says, but my cold feet say something different. I haven't been able to take the snakes outside for a romp yet. Oh well, gotta roll with it.

Neat lil island there. I was out at the bog last night and took some photos.. but the new camera is giving me a headache in getting the shots to the pc.. ugh.. so will have to work on that. dang it.. if its not one thing its another.

Well I am off for a bit to take the hub to the clinic.

Catch all of you later!

I got a moose for the topiary thread.. so join me there and if anyone can help in telling me how to, OH PLEEZ!

Laurel, DE(Zone 7a)

Laurel, DE(Zone 7a)

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.

(Zone 5a)

Careful elle, I hear they are trying to make everyone dance today! I escaped the cafe after a rousing round of push blossom on the rollerwheeled barstool... I got 2 left feet and a bum knee and that was their fun of it!! LOL!

Im still messing with that fangled dangled camers...not happy at all with it. July is a long way off for gettgin a newwwwwer model. Just hope the new upgrade is even better than my old Razor. grrrr.

Humansville, MO

(Zone 5a)

I think they will fix you right up at the cafe with that! The Milky Jo is on!

I am still futsing with that new camera.. I think I got the pixels adjusted for a larger shot, but boy that thing is not at all like my old camera and I am not happy.

That poor lil pond dries up by August usually. I am amazed how the lilypads can survive, but they keep coming back!

Heres a birdnest down at the ponds side! Its in a wild willow and we think it is a baltimore oriels but are not sure.
