Anudder rainy day....

Well, it are rainin' here agin... and if ya knows me, ya knows how I hates wet grass. Buddies, I tells ya, it's been rainin' so much here dat da ground has been squishy!! How's a pup supposed to do her yard art if da canvas is squishy?!?

I's been purdy busy since Easter... we went to visit my Momma's folks and stopped to wander in some bluebonnets on da way home...









Dat's just a few of da gazillion photos Momma took...  I'd show ya more, but I wanted to show ya some of da flowers we gots bloomin' in our yard. See, my Momma is a nutso 'bout bearded iris... every year she orders more from Schreiner's in Oregon. She evfun has a bunch dat she has in pots dat need to go in da ground if it evfur stops rainin' long enuff fur her to do dat...

Did I tell y'all I luvs to sniff da flowers? I duz. When we wuz in dat bluebonnet field, I went right ovfur to dem and smelled em gud! I also likes da iris, cuz dey smell gud, too, 'specially da ones dat smells like citrus... y'all know how I luvs, luvs, luvs citrus!! Some smell like root beer! Some is sweet, some like razzberries (da fruit kind, not da kind Crockett gives!)... so smell da iris ya comes across... ya might just be surprised!

Here's whut's bloomin' dis week in our garden...



















We gots us another new a/c & furnace unit installed dis week. Da one on da east side of da house went out last summer. Da one on da west were all outta coolant and rusty inside.. since it were 19 years old and livin' on borrowed time, Momma opted to have a new one put in. So we spent dat day in da sunroom wiff Whitley barkin' her head off... made it hard fur me to evfun take a nap!  Bol, bol!

Momma's got lots more work to get done on da house dis year... so we may be spendin' lotsa time in da sunroom... and Whitley's gonna do lotsa barkin'.... 

Do ya think they makes earplugs fur pups??? hee hee.....


Bark ya later, gators!
