A Sunny California Day

P1010014qToday was a bright and sunny day – finally – in California. So sunny infact, the pictures themselves are VERY bright. But nonetheless, a lovely day to putz around in the garden with the animals. As you will probably conclude after seeing the photos, Duhgall is napping – AGAIN – in his man cave. Socks and Fiona are enjoying themselves as are the bees. The wonderful coolness of the air has preserved the flowers thus far. Warmer weather is heading our way…but for now, cooler temps are the best! Gotta love it!

I heard that the mountains above LA got snow in this past week. That's crazy! Crazy weather everywhere. Looks as if your weather trends are heading in the right direction for now. Soon ours will join in, I hope.

Your flowers look so beautiful. It must be all the rain we have been getting lately. Love your red chairs. Have a nice Friday.

You have such gorgeous lush plants. I have got to get busy out on my deck. I have to repaint it and get some pots filled with flowers.

We have those same chairs in apple green and love them. Wish we could have a sunny day, nineteen days straight of rain. Your flowers look so breathtakingly beautiful.

I love those red chairs - there may be a run on red paint after everyone has looked at your photos!

Now Becky Fiona is getting her tan so she will look good for the Summer. Socks is her body guard.
She needs a red polka dot swim suit. I enjoyed listening to the Mamas and Papas, kinda brought me back to the 60's. I sang right along with them, its a good thing no one is home.
