Blooming at this moment in time
These aren't all the flowers that are currently blooming, but I just wanted to show you a few of the more spectacular show-offs in the yard at the moment.
I'm getting ready to take another break from blogging for a few days and concentrate on doing a little riding. I hope it won't be too hot out there in the sun, and maybe I'll be blessed with a little cloud cover and some nice shady roads to keep me cool. By the end of the week I'll be heading to the pool and a nice visit with relatives....I might even get to finally meet the newest member of my family.
I'll end by asking everyone to say a little prayer for Reva who will be having another heart catherization on Friday to put the second stint into a clogged artery near her heart. She suffered a heart attack two weeks ago and had a stint put in at that time and is doing very well...
but of course she'll be much better after this next procedure.
Also pray for Fuzzy the old blind & deaf tomcat who was caught by surprise and attacked by 3 of the neighbors dogs in our yard while he slept. He was saved from the dogs by Jimmy who ran to his aid, but Fuzzy has now gone into hiding and we can't find him. Also pray that we don't shoot the neighbors. And the reason I say that, is not because we plan on shooting anyone...we're just frustrated, because these dogs have already killed another one of our cats and also a young calf in the field behind our house. The people who own the dogs came out to see what their dogs were attacking only to find Jimmy chasing them out of the yard and lifting Fuzzy to safety, so they know what their dogs are capable of. Did we get an apology....NO! Only a veiled promise to put their dogs up by morning. Today the dogs are still running loose and we have a new promise of tomorrow morning. We don't want to make our neighbors mad, but we also don't want anymore of our cats being tormented or hurt in their own yard.
