We have had several days of sunshine and cheerful skies ..
I find it challenging to “not” look up at the sky .. it is so addictive when there is such incredible beauty up there …
Constant changes, artistic shifting of fanciful clouds …
See that little mark up there against the blue .. that is a magnificent eagle. I could see clearly with my binoculars
Isn’t this a peaceful sight .. the owner has lovely veggie gardens, he used to keep bees, and see the rustic old fence … and the magnificent trees in the background.
Sadly .. this is a fuller view .. big box homes being built onto the hillside adjacent from that pastoral view. Wonder how many trees were cut down for these boxes. Creepy. And that is what is happening around this town, all over.
On a happier note .. our group had just finished an energizing walk/hike for nearly 1 1/2 hours and now we were doing some warm down stretches. When suddenly .. Casey appeared!
He was a very social dog and made a point of going to each of us, to say a cheery hello! Isn’t he so sweet … and loving …
Back at home .. I fed Squirrely some peanuts .. here she looks like she is going to score a touchdown, left arm to the ground, right arm poised to throw the football .. ha ha ha
And now she is taking her treasures elsewhere, playtime is over.
Then I spent a happy few hours, shifting leaf mulch/hay from an area where I had tucked a lot of potted plants into a protected area against the winter. Now it was time to move them aside and dig up the composting material. I drilled holes in the bottom of several waste bins …and later filled them up with the material. Lots of holes so the water can drain and breathe a bit, before I use this lovely stuff throughout the yard.
I discovered this lovely packet of Irish Shamrock seeds & Irish dirt, a gift from my SIL years ago. I’ll finally plant these in a pot .. tomorrow!Well, I realize that I didn’t talk about my trip to the Llama farm … so will do that tomorrow!
