I think he looks rather cute. She had put one of those ridiculous bows in his topknot, which made him look like a real sissy, so I clipped that sucker out almost immediately. He still smells of foo-foo water, but that will go away in due time. Going to the groomers must be exhausting for our canine friends....Barker sleeps the rest of the day when he gets home!
Here is a pretty Nandina that I snapped out in my garden yesterday afternoon as I was gathering greenery to bring inside. We are supposed to have heavy rains beginning tonight and lasting for several days, so I got busy and did some clipping early. All of the greens are now soaking in buckets of water in the garage. I will bring them in tomorrow and arrange them around the house. I think I'm getting into the spirit....AT LAST!!!
Remember the gulls I told you about that are here to graze on the Red Finned Shad? Well, here is a picture of them swarming around on the lake yesterday. They are still here, and don't appear to be going anywhere anytime soon. I counted 22 Buffleheads this morning, about 15 Canada Geese, 3 Hooded Merganzers, 2 Great Blue Herons, and a slew of Mallards. Lovely!!!
And of course, I always try to squeeze in a bit of time for dyeing and sewing. I'm on a turquoise kick right now...turq and gold to be exact. Here is a piece of silk twill that I've been playing around with:
This is the closeup:
I wrapped gifts, made coffee breads and then cut out and baked cookies this afternoon. Kristin and Dave and their dog Marley are coming up tomorrow afternoon and we will decorate cookies, amongst other things. I am excited at the prospects of seeing them!!
Enjoy your days, peacefully!
