Thank You Mother Nature.

If you look close you can see Security Scotty on duty.

And here he is.

Of course he is chewing his favorite stick.
He is undercover as a Scotty playing.

On duty with his stick.

Rain storm is coming.

It rained off and on all day. Wonderful gentle rain.

Between storms we have sunshine and blue skies.

Ever since last weeks photo, I have been playing with the moon that lives in my home.

What do you do with a gud dug like iwinston ?
He has great dog food. Grain free, no potato, corn, wheat, soy or chicken-by products,
Just chicken, veggies and fruit.
He has chicken treats and gets a "Bark Box" in the mail every month,
thanks to thehamish, filled with toys and treats.

What does he love to play with the most, besides his green pig and stick ?

I have no words.


As always here is your pretty to start the week.
When I download my photos I alway have a strange one that I do not remember taking.
Small phone, arthritic hands = some very funny photos.
Love iwinstoms one ear peeking in.

cheers,  parsnip

As always here is your pretty to start the weekend.

Trying to take a pho of the rain clouds that are perched  over my home in the mountains.
I saw the light that is over the kitchen nook . Was going to turn if off but thought this is so cool.
When I try to take moon photos the moon always look so small.
I really liked this shot. Will try to take it again to see if I can get a clearer one.

It started to rain here on Valentines Day. Just a light sprinkle that turned into a nice gentle rain.
Thursday it rained all day as I watched the clouds drop and lift all day. 
Still a nice quiet rain today but will clear a bit later today. 
Saturday the rains start again with some sunshine.

We are so happy to finally have some rain. it has been a very short winter or almost none.
Maybe three days a month ago. That is very bad for us. We need the winter rain that is the  
nourishing rains that  feeds the earth and all who live on it.

cheers,  parsnip and mandibles

Dry plants, dry earth and no rain and snow. 
The Fire department said this is what we see at the start of summer not February.

My east side yard is safe but my backyard is just fenced so I have to stay outside with iwinston.
