and the beloved Winston the pug
The swimming lake opened today. The water must be really cold this year, but a few people were walking up the street with towels. Pop by anytime, Ella. My house is still a maze of boxes, but I always have plenty of coffee!

I complain about winter, but I handle the cold better than the heat. I can't imagine having August weather in May. How do you survive August?

No meteors, yet, but people are setting off fireworks. My other neighbors are having a bonfire. Between the commotion, the clouds and the trees it would be hard to see anything. I'll check again once things quiet down.

Winston the pug is exhausted from gardening. He missed his afternoon nap because he can't sleep while on garden guard duty. He is fine with the new place now that I have unpacked the kitchen gear and started cooking normal meals again. I cooked a batch of his special recipe stew. He was getting tired of his field rations - aka gluten free dog food. The latest bag is salmon and peas. Bella the cat prefers it to her cat food and she never touches the dog dry food.

I have the nicest neighbor. He was thinning out some plants around his flagpole and asked me if I wanted any. He warned me that they take over. As I mentioned, I have been looking for something to take over the strip of weeds and weed grass by the road. These plants are similar to my cranebill geranium but bigger and more prolific. Once they bloom, I should be able to guess what they are. The buds have a reddish pink tint, perhaps they may be pink. I got rid of two tote baskets of weed and weed grass clumps and spaced the plants apart along the front. I'll see how they do.

I also started laying out cardboard where the future stone walkways will be in the back yard. I am working with the existing terrain and the few existing plants. I found so many tree limbs under the leaves that I have the makings of a major bonfire.
