Beautiful pictures. I love the one of the pup - she looks so comfortable.

Wonderful, wonderful pics! I love them all!

Big Shamu said...

I know that Ollie look. It looks like there's a fly pestering him and he's just waiting to SNAP at it.

Dani said...

ScMomma, thanks. :)

ThreeC, we had another wave of little birds come through yesterday. Made me think of you. :) Spring is on it's way!!

Shamy, SNAP is what little sassy Vera was doing! She dropped that wing and was heading straight for the camera lens.

Is that a potato bed behind Ollie? If so, it's awesome!

Dani said...

Erin, it is. This is our first time doing the straw method. Hope it works.

Erin said...

Dani, looks like you are off to a great start! I do them in smaller cages and they love the straw, I am sure with that nice big straw bed you will get a pretty nice harvest, good luck!

I've never seen a straw bed before. I had been trying to find containers deep enough to grow them.
This is stupid day would you tell me the names of the blooming plants, beautiful things. You're so good at this. I have a book title for you. Comes directly from Louise...Guernsey Literary and potato peel Society written by Mary ann Shafer and Annie Barrow.
I'm trying the liberary. Love you much. God Bless

Mom, the first picture is broccoli that I let go to flower. The next picture is the potato flowers and then one lonesome marigold that I've managed to keep alive. Hope your ok. I'll call this evening. I love you too mom.

Hi Dani,

Love the colors on your photos. They always seem so bright and "alive".

Where did you get the flamigo's?

Dani said...

Hey Patti, I picked them up at Walgreens. They were $5.99 and I got the last two that our store had in stock. It just made my day thinking about all those tacky flamingos hangin' out in our yards.

Darla said...

Lovely, lovely photos. Just the cheering up I need after a long day. Thanks!

Making Space said...

Sooooo beautiful. The one of Ollie made me chuckle. That dog has a goooood life. Haha

Hey, how can I get your meatballs and sauce recipes? The Sweeties want to make them... Can you put the recipes in a comment on my blog or in a FaceBook message? Yummy!

Dani said...

You are so welcome Eggy. :)

MS, if you go back to the DSS post, you'll see the name of the recipe(it's a lighter color script). Just click on it, and that will take you to the recipe on Epicurious.

LaDivaCucina said...

I always get soooo tickled looking at your life there. Love the garden, Ollie, Elizabeth and all the homey goodness your blog represents to me!

Kate and Crew said...

Awesome pics. That flamingo looks almost tame! LOL. I wonder if your flamingoes will turn white like ours did in this darned Florida sun.

You should enter some of your chicken pics in the Backyard Farming chicken photo contest. You've taken some wonderful pictures for your blog of them!

You: An amazing photographer.

Me: Jealous
