simply spectacular

This was taken today, tomorrow looks like another awesome bloom day. This is my front walk. I was given the arbor last year for mother's day. The roses are about the size of large oranges, and have hundreds of petals.

Small wonders...... what a long hard winter it has been.......

scary ice

She was born on 6-6, and she just turn two. This is the scary face she makes when she gets mad, it looks a lot worse than it really is. In this photo she is protecting her stick. Icey is currently in the midst of training. Not because of this face but rather because she doesn't listen and she runs our life. Icey actually has her own personal trainer now, plus I train daily when the trainer isn't here.

Funny thing I never knew the most important command is to teach your dog is to come when called. The trainer told me that Icey's number one issue was failure to listen. This has actual been quite a learning experience for me, as well as Icey.

I have sweeter photos of her, but this one kind of shows how bossy she can be. It's really amazing how dogs think and how manipulative they can be. I always just thought it was the way she was, and nothing I could do about it.

We are just finishing week one and there has already been great improvement.

one of my beauties

This rose has been a favorite of mine for the last couple years. It's called Rainbow Sorbet. Same rose different lighting.
