Coming Out of The Fog!

It's too warm.....

It’s too warm…..

As the weather warms up, I’m warming up as well.  I have ideas!  Ideas for painting,  decorating, gardening, and ideas for fashion.  It’s been important for me to stay away from stores in general.  Everything except grocery stores, and that seems to be just as dangerous.  (I love to shop, especially if it is for me.)

My tomato, and bell pepper plant are growing big. The cilantro,has decided to throw in the towel, and  be compost.  The  celery along with a new organic parsley plant  are  growing quite well.  This gives me hope that they too will survive.

The lawn, well we have stopped watering the lawn altogether.  The drought has pushed us into a brown lawn, maybe brown dirt is a better way to describe it.     It takes a lot of work, and a huge amount of water to keep our lawn green and healthy looking.  Then….. there is Daisy, our dog!  She is helping make the decision to eliminate grass.  Between the drought and Daisy, our lawn doesn’t stand a chance.  Although I have wanted to do something different with that area for a long time, anything I want to do isn’t affordable!

All the other plants are fine.  We have just about totally replaced water guzzling plants with drought tolerant plants,  and anything that doesn’t live around here,   will get replaced with a boulder!

They don’t take much time, or water…..they just sleep a lot!

Mums The Word!

Dust Bunny, or Dusty as he is now called has felt very lonely of date! He begs, and pleads for a friend that looks like himself, but the only friends he has are of the two legged variety. Oh, he has a couple of four legged friends, but they look really different from him, and Dusty is perplexed at their comings, and goings. He doesn’t understand why they don’t like carrots, or lettuce, and only eat stinky, smelly tidbits out of a can, or big round, hard chunks of something they call “Tender vittles!”

Dusty had tried to make friends that were living  in his garden, buy they seemed……well, less than excited about the prospects of a new relationship!

While Dusty longs for a girlfriend, behind his back…..way behind his back, his human friends have been looking loooong, and hard for a proper girl bunny.

Sad Dusty!

Sad Dusty!

Now, Dusty doesn’t know this, so don’t tell him, but I think they have found him one….

She doesn’t have a  name yet, that will come after everyone gets to know her, and love her. If all goes well, it is  very  possible  she will be coming to live with Dusty and his human family next Saturday.

It seems to me that Dusty has to know something’s up, because he keeps anxiously waiting by the back door.   He probably doesn’t know about his new friend, but maybe he’s heard rumblings among the human’s when they gather, or maybe one of the other four legged friends ratted the humans out.

I for one, can’t wait to see Dusty’s little furry face, once he spots his new friend!

I’ll keep you posted, and maybe even be able to get some amazing shots of the big surprise…..just remember...Mums the Word!
