Garden Wandering~~~~

HayLo, There!
(love this contorted face look)

Just wandering around the garden as usual.
How do you like our boxwood hedge?
It's growing gangbusters
and Ron is always pruning it.

He wanted to show you the new shoots popping out on 
the Dawn Redwood,

and the Larix Kaempferi
Japanese Larch
so delicate!

Even last year's seedhead of  a clematis
grabs your attention.

Sitting pensively near my pool in front of the Japanese Maples,
I wonder sometimes when someone is going to come and play.

I always survey the vet's place next door,
'cause there is always a chance 
that an unsuspecting 4 legged 
might see me.
Then, I'll turn on my "Let's Play" radar.
No luck yet, but that isn't going to stop me.


  1. Hello Sophie!! Once things start growing, they really take off, don't they? Leaves will be here before you know it, and a playmate will appear too, I just know it! Enjoy your day!!!

  2. Beautiful garden--but you need to go to the beach. Where are your dads....and Mr orange?

    XXXOOO Daisy, kendra & Bella

  3. Lovely photos, she has a very pretty face! :-)

  4. Hi Sophie Doodle! Gracie gets that contorted face too and it always makes me laugh. Aah, you look lonely. If I were there I'd play orange ball with you...

  5. Spring appears to be taking hold up there : )

  12. Sophie, mom is full of envy, because you have a beautiful garden...

  13. Funny thing, Sophie has never done any digging or eating in the garden. Go figure. She is however 'stick-obsessed'!

  14. I sure hope you have a friend come play with you soon in your beautiful garden. I am always keep watch too. A dog can never have to many friends.

  15. It sure is a welcome sight to see everything starting to bud. I think we must have had a sunny day today because I awoke this evening to find leaves on all the trees. I'll send it your way.

  16. Dear Sophie...I'm really lovin' that header shot. You look fantastic. There are so many beautiful photos in the last three posts. Wow!
