woodland Ramblings

On my walks with the dogs, I always come across  dead or fallen trees. I find the the decaying trunks of these trees interesting, because they can be the home of many things. Rabbits, moles, mice and a whole hodgepodge of insects.

     Sometime if I am lucky, I'll stumble upon a stump like this one that has decayed  into an interesting shape, or a natural sculpture.   You could  even  consider them a nature's Rorschach test. What do you see when you look at this?
Hmmmm!  This log reminds me of the "Sorting hat from Harry Potter". I wonder how that would be interpreted, But I'll leave that up to you.

Cold day for a swim

After chasing the ducks out of the pond Molly decided it was a good day for a swim.  Its almost impossible to keep her out of the water, even when the air temperature is only 50 degrees.  My water bottle severed as a perfect substitute for a retrieving dummy. The ducks flew to the other side of the pond but Molly still kept her eyes on them in case they tried to come back.     
   Its been too wet to work out in the fields around the farm or vineyard and the weatherman is calling for one to two more inches of rain tonight. so I'm content to play with Molly for a little while longer.

The love dog

Molly waits for me every night. when I pull down the driveway, she is sitting waiting for me to come home. I do not even get the car door open and that anvil of a head pushes through and I am enveloped in  pure, unselfish love.

~ My sunshine doesn't come from the skies,
It comes from the love in my dog's eyes~.
