Birdhouse in the fog

On a foggy morning last weekend, I was outside taking a few pictures & I noticed the purple birdhouse on the fence post.

I couldn’t help but see the contrast of the birdhouse, fence, grass, and fog.

The little things we see often get overlooked for something that stood out more.

Open your eyes and truly see what is around you and that is the day your life will change forever.

Daisy turns 6 years old

On April 22, 2013, the most beautiful boxer was born.

Our Daisy girl is six years old and she still acts like a puppy on most days.

I never knew a dog could have so much personality.

She talks to us and can get quite sassy sometimes.

She loves to sleep at the foot of our bed covered up everywhere but her head. That does not mean that if she gets cold in the night she will not get between us lol.

When I am gone somewhere and get back home she expects something special & now she has taught Zoee this trick. I keep a bag of special treats for those occasions. They get dog biscuits on a daily basis so those do not count lol.

Daisy has brought so much joy to our lives I have no idea what we would have done without her. I am glad she and Zoee have each other because she’s a good sister mama & Zoee is a great companion for her.

I will try and get some more pics this week she was not being very cooperative yesterday.

This picture is her waiting for Zoee to come outside and join her. That anticipation look.

Happy Birthday, Daisy Girl! We Love you.

Pretty little butterfly

Everywhere we look there are butterflies in all colors, shapes, and sizes.

Springtime is such a wonderful time of the year we get to see nature come back to life again and enjoy her beauty.

Cherish each day go outdoors and feel the sun on your skin, the breeze in your hair, take a deep breath and enjoy the beauty.

Nature puts on a new movie every day but you have to get outdoors to see it.

They’re Back

Last year we got lucky and the cedar waxwings found other mulberry trees so we actually got to pick some.

This year they are eating our mulberries before we can pick them.

There will be 60 in the tree at the same time chowing down.

Daisy was mad because she loves mulberries and she went out there and was looking all over the ground to find some. I finally found a few on the ground for her. Yes, our dog picks berries lol.

Nature is so beautiful and these birds colors are truly amazing. I enjoy watching them even if they are thieves.

Dogs just wanna have fun

Our two boxers Daisy and Zoee both seem to love the water hose.

Zoee will not back off and scares me she’s going to choke on the water so she has to be monitored.

Daisy runs and gets it and then runs off.

They had a good time on Sunday once our Texas warm weather kicked back in.

This all started because I was trying to water plants and flowers. Zoee thinks that is her time and she got Daisy involved in her water hose game.

Dogs just wanna have fun & have a little playtime.

Lichen, Moss, and Algae

Where there is a sick or dead tree it becomes a host for many colorful things.

This limb fell off during a rainstorm.

On each of the limbs were lichen, moss & algae and there were all kinds of it.

I love photographing stuff like this for the colors, textures and the close-up examination using my macro lens.

DIY Yard Decor

I love crafting and lately I have been making these really cute flowers.

I have several different colors spread around the yard and they honestly look real.

All you need are rubber balls the old fashion kind, golf tees, zinc or steel rod and spray paint. I found the rubber balls at Walmart, I ordered the golf tees from Amazon and the spray paint and rod came from Lowes.

I painted the rubber balls first because mine looked like baseballs. Add the golf tees in a color of choice or spray paint the whole thing.

I tried leaving the ball a different color but they did not look as good. After many tries, I discovered painting them all the same color worked best. I painted the rods green to make them look real.

These are in our bog for the pond. Scatter them out and use different heights to make them look natural.

I love being creative and trying new things I find crafts are good for me & they keep me busy.

Zoee the growing pup

Zoee is growing fast she weighs 43.8 #s at almost 9 months old.

She is the typical boxer puppy who jumps on you too much and is very hyper. I love it when she takes off running like a racehorse.

Daisy and Zoee are both have pollen allergy eyes right now. Zoee seems to have it worse.

I have come to the conclusion she is a sealed brindle there is brown hair under the black and it is a lot more noticeable around her shoulder area. Look on the front facing shoulder area and you can see it.

Zoee tore her carpal pad this is the pad that is up on the ankle area of a dog. I took her to the vet they sedated her and super glued bandaged it and told me to take off in a few days. I had to put on the collar thing to keep her from bothering it. Well, the super glue did not hold she would not keep the collar on and I even ordered a better one. It’s healing on its own so we will leave it alone.

I think Daisy is truly enjoying have Zoee around they are best friends and truly love each other.

Thorny weed

I am not sure of the name of this weed but the blooms intrigue me.

The leaves have thorns and scratch you badly.

I rarely get a chance to photograph these.
