A Winter Walk

It’s easier to tolerate winter when the sun shines and when you have a dog to walk!

Fishing vs Catching

“A bad day fishing is better than a good day at work!”

These two with their O’Pa at a favorite pond are simply happy to be casting and reeling and catching little biters.

Flowers make me happy, especially in the bleak winter days when the sun doesn’t shine for weeks on end!

Alstromerias can be found in a variety of colors in our local florists’ shops and gardening stores. These are a bright spot on a January day!

Lined Up

Where did Summer go?

The watering cans, well-used, gave drinks to so many flowers and veggies

planted on our deck.

Now we’ve picked our last cherry tomatoes,

watered the impatiens and petunias for the last times,

and prepare to winterize soon.

But not too soon.

Please.

Give us more beautiful Autumn days to sprinkle thirsty flowers,

though spindly and fading,

just to enjoy the task.
