Favorite part of my home.

John over at "Going Gently" had a post about a favorite part of his home. A place where he sits and plans his day, future, practise his choir songs and enjoys a coffee.

He asked his readers to send a photo of their favorite part of their home.
So many were cosy, beautiful, warm. happy places so very "British" to me.  Overstuffed rooms filled with wood, rugs, fireplaces, comfy chairs lots of dogs and cats and a chicken ! A few sent in lovely porches or gardens all wonderful full of flowers and so very loved and fun and to look at.

I wanted to send in a photo of my studio where I am the happiest. Big window, lots of light and a
view outside where I can watch all the wild and crazy critters who wander past my side yard.
I can watch Mountain Lions, Bobcats, Javelinas, birds and various critters visit the ponds
and rest in the shade.
Thanks to "concast"and messed up computer I didn't get to send one or two maybe four ?
The light makes it hard for my camera phone to take any good photos.

My studio was even sorta clean as I was trying to get some work finished. I spend most of my day here with the gud dugs.

Work table looking towards my computer and big window that is my view to the ponds and 
wild animals. Agatha and iwinston sitting on a daybed so they can watch what I an doing
hoping for a treat !

The computer table with the window.

The gud dug window with Agatha  buffing at the bunnies running around.

Of course if there is any woofing to be done iwinston joins in.

 Here is the view I get to see everyday.

Of course here is the best view with the gud dugs from the kitchen.

Gud Dugs said the grass was just fine to walk on now.


Maybe to nap on.

. . . . . . . . .

Here is your pretty for the week of the Century Plant

Century/Agave plant in my front yard with lots of babies.

See you Friday

Square Dog Friday, everyday stuff

Square Dog Friday.
Best day of the week is here. So lets woof !

The Agatha In The High Castle.

To escape from iwinston, Agatha has dug a foxhole up the rocky hill under a bush.

She digs in, makes plans and then pops out barks at iwinston, then charges.
He stays at the bottom and barks up at her.
So much fun !

 Agatha and iwinston on patrol. The grass has a summer fertilizer on it 
and until it dissolves I don't want the gud dugs walking or rolling on it. 

 Agatha on patrol.

 Action shot.

 Surveillance !

 Agatha is always looking to see where I am, my little shadow.
Even when she is supposed to be on Patrol.

 iwinston sitting in his office keeping an eye on what is going on.

 Always watching !

 This is a photo through the screen door, so it is very blurry.
Agatha take her Security Job seriously !
This reminds me of "Countryside Tales" gud dug Poppy who loves to stand in pots 
and watch what is going on over her fence.

Still growing.

 More Prickly Pear blooms.

 I love these blooms.


As always here is your pretty for the weekend.

Some of my Cactus art.
