Tiny Sequoias, Pond Cleaning, and a New Afghan Project

Posted by mrssmythe on April 25, 2017 in Chickens, Crafting, Critters, Garden, Seasons, Week in Review |

CPT A brought his sequoias home from the office this past week. He has two now (from an original batch of eight) that he’s nurtured from seed. They’re two years old, and it was time for them to be repotted…a nerve-wracking procedure as CPT A has grown rather fond to them. But, here we are, two days later, and […]

A house on our dog-walk route has recently added a small, stone bulldog statue to its front yard. It sits near the home’s front walk, underneath a tree. Kipper spotted it the other day.
