One Happy DogHere's an updated picture of Miss Lucy. It's been two years since we first set eyes on her, and the difference is truly amazing. She's gone from a fearful, abandoned dog to a pampered lap dog. We were both outside this afternoon, and she seemed to be enjoying the warm sun as much as I was.
We made some interesting discoveries as we were poking around. The wrens are making a nest in the corner of the fence! It was tempting to go look, but I think I'll stay away and get the binoculars so I don't disturb them. Also, we have some really interesting "weeds" that have sprouted up with the recent rains. This is a very tall (about 5'), slender plant with pods that are turning all different colors. *Image not retouched, btw. This is how it actually looks. There were also some delicate purple flowers at the top a few days ago. If anyone knows what this plant is called let me know-I'm curious!
