My daughter, Marymine's birthday is today. She is an amazing woman in so many ways!
I miss living close enough to see her everyday, there is always lots going on at her place. Between kids, dogs, critters, family, and friends there is never a dull moment. And she is a fantastic cook! (I know...that gene skipped a generation.)

We had two inches of rain a couple days ago, which started the feed. Yep, shoots are up...in the field, and there is sign that the fawn is back.
Ideal weather for planting the Aptos Blues I bought earlier in the summer. They are going to fill some holes in the wind breaks.
Been trying to prune back the landscape jungle that the folks had planted when they built. It was way over planted, and the gardener has just been shearing it back in places. Consequently it has entirely lost it's design form, if there was one. Getting it back to a more esthetically pleasing design is a challenge. If it were up to me alone, the sound of a chain saw would fill the air. Reducing the multitude of garden figure chachkies is helping. But it has to be done slowly, as not to upset the elders...sigh.
Willie has finally gotten his new doggles...and is ready to hit the road to new adventures.
