Spring Flowers

 

The very first sprinkling of color is popping up all over the yard…

Of course I had company while on my photography spree.

Cats! They always seem to have such goofy looks!

Navi had a grand old time in the backyard, hunting mice in the tall grass and digging holes.

Barclay preferred to stay clean with a good game of stickball.

Even Mighty seems disturbed by how filthy Navi got!

I never get tired of taking pictures of her when she’s muddy – I just think it’s so cute! She really puts her all into digging for treasure!

How clean she gets after a quick round with the hose and drying off is simply miraculous!

Watch out for the laser eyes!

Down it goes...


Monday the new neighbors brought in the big guns...


And laid the old barn out flat. The end of an era. But hey, look at the view - we can see all the way to the dairy up the hill now! That red building behind the barn is the fire station. The view will be a lot nicer without the rusty, collapsing barn in the way.

All they have to do now is haul the debris away. The picture really doesn't do it justice, it's about the length of a football field. You can see the big dumpster down on the left, and the double-wide behind it. That's a LOT of clean-up they have to do!
