Wednesday Dog of the Week

Here is Emma, a Boston Terrier mix, she's just a puppy, only about 3 months old..a little sweetie, playful and friendly.....a nice companion dog for the right person...she also comes with 30 days prepaid pet insurance and a free registration with 24 hour pet watch.....you can find her at the Sun City K9 Rescue

I've been fighting a sore throat for the last day or so..came home from work with it and went to bed early...still under the weather........hard to sleep as I started coughing until I got some water....I didn't go with Alan to a job he had today in Escondido, Ca......its not a long drive, only about 45 minutes but thought I'd better rest......I don't want this to turn into anything worse....

We got the flower bed finished and put a few plants in ...zinnas, and the ones in the down the row are French iris.....a friend sent them to me from Ill. Once they get established, they will be lovely, or at least we hope so...the friend didn't know what color they will be.....


We are thinking about getting some tulip and other bulbs this winter to plant here...and think it will be fun and easier to maintain than the lawn ...the grass never did well along the wall. Alan and the boys went to the local garden center and brought home a truck load of soil amendment which we worked into the ground.....our lawn is suffering with the heat, in fact, everything is...the only plant that is doing well and actually growing is our fig tree..it seems to thrive on the heat and has grown another foot or more this year already......is about 15 ft. tall now and loaded with figs.....we've been eating them, sliced in half with low fat cream cheese...Wow, are they good!
I am also drying some on our patio, covered with cheese cloth and allowing to naturally dry...
