Not much going on today. It's been a nice, rainy, lazy day. We did have some visitors to our pond this afternoon.
They left when I went outside to take these pictures. It's just as well. Our pond is too small for them. And Scarface would give them quite the scare. He harrasses this guy plenty as it is...
But Scarface should proceed with caution, 'cause the silent type can be the most deadly...This frog has overwintered in our pond for two or three years now. We've seen him eat a couple of birds. He actually jumps up out of the water and snatches them in the air. Amazing. We thought we were keeping him to eat bugs.
We took Chelsea for a walk this afternoon...
This little neighborhood tough came out to give us the "what for"...isn't she adorable?
Anyone else tired of this color for a house exterior? I know I am.
Kim and I will be trading cars with our daughter next week. She's tired of making a car payment, what with working two jobs and going to college. So we agreed to give her our car, which, by the way, both our children have wrecked. In the driveway. By pulling it out of the garage and into our truck. Amazing. Teenagers and cars just don't mix.
We'll take over payments on her car, which we've always liked anyway, so it should be fine.
The two Tuscawilla Tigress Daylilies I ordered from Oakes Daylilies
arrived today. I've saved a spot for them near the stream. Kim loved this bright orange daylily when we saw it in someone's yard last year. I'll probably plant them this week. I've always had good luck ordering from Oakes.
and finally, my Niobe clematis I've kept in a pot near our front door for about four years now is blooming as it does every year. It's been a great plant.
