LuLu wanted me to share this picture of her with the pretty stick she found. She brought it all the way into the house to show me, and then picked up the rope, as well, on her way out. She’s so proud of her sticks. Gee, I wonder if it has anything to do with the big deal we make over how pretty they are. This one was really special with all the “decorations” hanging off of it and everything. It came out of the gutter when Rich was cleaning them and LuLu was quick to claim it as her own.
Not to be out-cuted, Wally had to grab the first thing he could find that we would fuss over, too. Ever since he learned to fetch shoes he’s certain we’ll always be glad to have them. And we are. Wouldn’t dream of telling him we don’t need them right now.
Of course, shoes are good for this, as well:
I also wanted to share this rose because it’s such a ray of sunshine:
It’s my only rose. I don’t do well with them because of the deer and disease and bugs. Don’t like to spray because of the dogs. Can’t use certain products because it’s in a pot on the deck. This one has been sprayed with something organic, but the foliage is still turning with fungus or whatever that stuff is. Beautiful blooms, though, and very long stems. My son gave it to me for Mother’s Day last year. I’ll continue to work with it because it’s special.
Wishing you a happy weekend!
