Hey, at least the day started out with some sunshine. I finally got a chance to check out the Penstemon out in the muddy fields. Not looking too bad, but I can’t figure out a way to get a good … Continue reading

Still no break from the rotten weather. It’s rained so much that we have waterfalls all over the place like this one at the Diamond Ridge entrance. Okay, okay, I’m pulling your paw, cuz this is a fake waterfall built … Continue reading

Not even a hint of sun today. I needed something other than gray, gray, gray, so I made up a Pasqueflower book. I’m kinda living in the past today, so I can remember what good weather is like. Dog oh … Continue reading

Another cloudy day with rain…it won’t stop. I did get up close to a Goatsbeard flower this afternoon. I think it could use some sun (though that’s not going to happen any time soon). Lucky George had some great Globemallow … Continue reading

Karen had another vet appointment, so dad and I drove her there. While waiting I wandered down to the pond to check for any creatures worth chasing. I did go after a couple of squirrels, but didn’t have any luck. … Continue reading
