Last fall my mother decided to tear out all of her iris bulbs….as in she no longer wanted any. These bulbs are originally from my grandmother, so I couldn’t let them all get trashed.
I was excited to see that some yellow bloomed.
Taffy says hurry up because you smell so pretty when you are in full bloom.
Taffy was very, very interested in something on the other side of the fence this morning. She wouldn’t budge from this spot and kept barking and digging. I went out to see what the fascination was, only to find absolutely nothing of interest. Time went on and she kept carrying on, so I decided to take a closer look outside the fence.
I moved some leaves and fluff and found these little guys. Some dumb bunny decided to nest right by the fence. I covered them back up and tried to come up with a plan to keep the dogs from tunneling out of the yard.
This probably isn’t going to work, but it was the best I could come up with on the spur of the moment. Now Taffy is pacing from one end of the tarp to the other.
Glen and I, after much deliberation, decided to give Taffy the ultimate Christmas gift. We gave Taffy the gift of adoption. So naturally I had to dress her up for the occasion.
Tippy wanted in on the dress up action too.
He looks pretty, but he is nutty as a fruitcake. This is Tippy. We “inherited” him from Glen’s mom when she moved to an independent living apartment. He is mostly a good boy, but he has issues that I doubt we are going to be able to break him of.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
