Who knew dogs liked berries? We screened off the gooseberry bush from the birds, but little did we know there was another culprit picking our berries. I ventured out one afternoon to find the dog inside the enclosure gently picking the berries off the branches. He looked up at me with that “I’ve been caught look” and scooted out. Mr. Innocent himself with a leaf sticking out the side of his mouth!
The humming birds have been a treat this year. Our feeders were very busy with bees as well, unfortunately. The new weeping mulberry has been a great perch on one side of the porch with the magnolia working out as a wonderful look out on the other side. Two little males with their brilliant iridescent green feathers and red neckties sit guarding their respective feeders. I have to say that I do love it when they duel. If you haven’t seen it, they swoop in giant u-shaped arcs in the sky. Amazing feats of aerial acrobatics!
A few weeks ago, I packed up my sewing projects into the trunk of the car and put the cover on the machine I leave behind. Boo hoo!
Leaving our summer haven behind is not what Pip had in mind. Sitting in mud puddles and chasing farm vehicles down our lane has been FABULOUS! He looks so trim and fit. Wish I could say the same!
Summer is over….but my favorite season has arrived!
Looking forward to seeing you all at the Open House, September 14th!
