Relax…It’s All Good!…

Especially when your a dog! Or, at least when you’re one of Todd’s Dogs! Having a nice wet and mild winter has given us all hope for a spectacular spring and I think Baily, Cooper and Lulu can smell it!

There is an atmosphere of relaxed anticipation in Todd’s Backyard…

In his favorite porch spot, sits Baily. Taking in the landscape, daily….

Watching the pond full of bathing birdies, getting rid of all their desert dirties!

Then he spots a humming bird, resting on a branch, undisturbed….

So much to see, so much to smell! Baily’s in heaven and all is well!

For Baily’s brother, Cooper, he’s just not into birds.

His daily nap, is much preferred!

Until, his nappy is disturbed, by the pungent odor of the local herd…

And where o where is sister Lulu?

A friend just flew in to say  “Heyyouwhoo”!

But Lulu is not much of a yard dog like her big brothers.

When it comes to relaxing, she has her druthers!

Princess of the house is her M.O.! Like….what would you expect….Hellooo!

A Sunny Sunday Afternoon…

Finally….the weather is perfect! About 72 degrees, light breeze and lots of sun! Everything is getting ready to blossom. The citrus trees, the cactus, the wild flowers. Todd and I sat out on the porch considering all of the projects to come. While we pondered, I got some great pics! Here’s a sample of our lovely  Sunday afternoon….

The bees are busy! The aloe and lantana are already abloom!


Todd’s discussing one of his next projects. In case you might be wondering why he’s wearing safety glasses, he’s almost poked his eye out twice in the last month on a hackberry bush! After several doctor’s visits and lots of meds, I guess he figured it was about time to take some precautions!

Bun in the sun….waiting for some fun!!

“Mr. Woodrow Peckerhead”

The fierce Chi-yote!  Surveying her kingdom and enjoying the afternoon.

Hopefully we’ll have about 6 weeks of this perfect weather! Guess that’s what Arizona is all about. Better enjoy it now though, because 100+ degrees will be upon us before you can say ” Hot Friggity Dog!”
