The fig tree is budding out....
Dyke and Zack dug up some seedling trees from the river and they've started them in pots in the garden
Last week, we had 3 days of rain - totalling 5-6 inches! Zack found a baby cottontail trying to stay afloat in the lower pasture, as it was like a lake down there from the swollen creeks! We kept him for a week, and when he was eating well, Zack released him back to the pasture. While he was recovering and strengthening in his temporary home at the house, we woke up several mornings to find that he had escaped the box! We had to bring Penny into the house to "sniff him out!" She was successful and we knew that the bunny was getting strong enough to survive on his own.
Jake and 3 others were invited to "perform" in a fashion show as part of the local Campfire Girls meeting. They had to come up with their own outfits, so Jake chose my black slinky dress with cascading turquoise beads. I had only worn it one time - on the cruise that I went on a few years ago. It was a sight to behold! He wore his turquoise-topped cowboy boots, and stuck a fake flower in his ear. I did not attend, but heard from many that they were a RIOT!!!! Ah, that's my boy!!!!
