like Dill Green Beans...
the beans...dill and garlic all grown in a friend's garden
....hand picked... packed and processed by the friend
and presented in a basket lined with a blue plaid fabric.
Each bean will be savored.
A beautiful gift.
A good gift.

That Look

It is funny how the dogs always give 'that look' when being bathed. The look that says 'did I do something wrong' ???  I can't get down to the floor and lean over the tub to give Mandy a bath due to a little back trouble so Tiffiny took over and we sent her a note.

Blue Eyed Girl

The beautiful Mini Pearl and her marvelous blue eyes. They are termed 'glass eyes' for the breed Australian Shepherd.  Mini Pearl is just that, a small Australian Shepherd and a pearl of a girl.

Moon Rise

The moon at yesterday's four o'clock walk. I had to tweak the color a bit for it to show. The full moon is scheduled for December 10th. I am not so crazy about the cold weather, night time temps in the low twenties right now but I do love the night sky during winter especially late night and before dawn. The stars seem to be crisp and sharp in the sky at those times.
