New in the neighborhood

 We have a new friend in the neighborhood.  

Her name is Smudge and Baxter is her big brother. 

My baby brother and his bride rescued Smudge from Northwest Aussie Rescue. 

She is 1/2 toy Aussie, 1/4 Pug and 1/4 Beagle.  She won't get real big.  She has Beagle ears and tail.

She is pretty cute!

Honeysuckle Trumpet Vine

 Years ago I had Yellow and Orange Honeysuckle Trumpet Vine all around the grain bin.  Apparently birds pooped the seeds all over as they come up in the woods here and there.  I only see the yellow not the orange ones.

It did not survive around the grain bin...but it is thriving in the woods.  Go figure.

Yellow Lady Slipper and Cake

 There are Yellow Lady Slippers along our driveway, this year there are four blooms. 

Such a pretty flower...one of my favorites! 

Peach had a cake!  So she is officially one!  Jen shared this photo with us.

Peach is one!

 Happy Birthday to our youngest Great-granddaughter...Ree better known as Peach.  She was one year old earlier this week.

Great Auntie Jen took some photos! 

Peach is a real doll!   I can hardly believe she is one already.  

Great Auntie Jen is one of her favorite people! AND Peach is one of Jen's favorite people too! 

The birthday pool party is today, there will be too many people for us to attend.  We facetimed with Peach on her birthday.  We will see her in person one day next week. 

Happy Birthday Peach!  You are one well loved little girl!

Big Bear

 The bear napped and lounged around in our yard for about five hours...he must have had a full tummy.  

When morning came and he woke up, he wandered off.  My husband calls this photo "Coffee with Gene" 

I am thankful I no longer sleep walk in my old age...ten years ago I was still sleep walking and would wake up outside.
