Christmas 2005

Christmas is my favorite time of year.


Spud & Smokey

Spud & Smokey

Lord - I do miss Spud! He was the best dog in the world - gentle, patient, loving - just like all boxers. Smokey still misses him greatly. They were best friends.


Spud & Smokey Cuddle The Weasel

Spud & Smokey Cuddle The Weasel

Yup - the dogs like to treat old Weasel like a pillow. He put up with it. He likes to cuddle them as well, so it works out well for all concerned.


Miss Baby Ginger

Miss Baby Ginger

Our sweet baby girl when she was a sweet baby girl. This little bundle of fur now weighs 75 pounds, and does a fine imitation of a whirling dervish! She is still sweet, though - and will always be our little girl.


Ginger Kissing Her Kitty

Ginger Kissing Her Kitty

This is our cat Weasel. He has to be the most tolerant cat on the planet. He allows his dogs to man-handle him like crazy, and always comes back for more. He is my special kitty.


Ginger (Peachy or Snap - depends on the day!)

Ginger (Peachy or Snap - depends on the day!)

Our baby bunny at rest (not her natural state). She is a very sweet little girl - loves to sleep on her back. When she does this, our other dog Smokey Joe is apt to begin washing her face. She pretends to be annoyed, but if he stops, she nudges him until he begins again.


Ginger and her Big Brother Spud

Ginger and her Big Brother Spud

This is when our baby bunny was a tiny girl. She was ony 4 weeks old when we rescued her, and no bigger than my husband's hand. She loved climbing all over Spud, our white boxer. He was a very big boy - almost 100 lbs. and so gentle. Spud, sadly, has passed away since this photo was taken. He adored his little sister to pieces!

Such a wonderful dog. So sweet and gentle.


Mr. Spider to You!

Mr. Spider to You!

This wonderful web-spinner is very common in the south. It is completely harmless, but HUGE! He catches all kinds of nasty buggies, and makes a really cool looking web. An eclectic addition to the garden.


Old Garden Rose

Old Garden Rose

This beauty has a scent that will knock your socks off! I am not sure of the name, but it blooms reliably twice a season, and has a wonderfully electric color. It is also completely disease resistant. The perfume is so intense, it takes only one spray to fill a room. Pure, absolute pleasure!


Sombrueil - An Old Garden Rose!

Sombrueil - An Old Garden Rose!

This beautiful old garden rose is a climber. It will blossom regularly throughout the season. The blossoms are antique white, with a touch of green at the center. It is susceptible to black spot, but I grow it for the fragrance - sliced apples. We grow it with an America climber that smells like cinnamon. Instant apple pie!


I Love Scented Peony's!

I Love Scented Peony's!

Here's another one. I adore the vibrant red color! And the smell! Like candy.


The Peony

The Peony

What can I say about peonies? Their smell is delicious, the foliage attractive, and the flowers gorgeous - a great addition to the perennial garden.


Globe Allium

Globe Allium

This is a member of the onion family. Very attractive, but definitely needs staking. One good rainstorm and over it goes!


Thistles, Thistles and more Thistles!

Thistles, Thistles and more Thistles!

Yes, this also grows in my garden. Not on purpose, mind you - it just sort of 'volunteers'. Still - it does have its own kind of stately beauty - does it not?


A Rose by Any Other Name!

A Rose by Any Other Name!

This lovely bloom is one of the many roses that grace my garden. I am addicted to them - their scent is delicious! It is a floribunda - don't know the the particular cultivar, but the petals start out a deep rose, changing to pale apricot before falling to the ground. No hips on this one, but the fragrance! A mixture of damask, with just a touch of licorice. Lovely!


Azaleas and more Azaleas!

Azaleas and more Azaleas!

Love this hot color! It really light up the landscape, doesn't it?This is the south - and nothing grows better in southern climates than the good ol' azalea! Ha Cha Cha!!!


Beauty Like The Night

Beauty Like The Night

'She walks in beauty like the night, Of cloudless climes and starry skies; And all that's best of dark and bright Meet in her aspect and her eyes: ...'


Warm and Lovely

Warm and Lovely

Another of the 'What the hell cultivar is that!' roses that fill my garden. It blooms spring and fall, with a sporadic re-bloom in mid-summer. The blossoms last a long time in the vase, and the perfume can't be beat. Whatever it is - it stays!


Louise Clements

Louise Clements

One of the sweetest of the David Austin varietals. Apricot colored, smallish blooms with a scent that fills the garden! One of my favorite roses. It is almost constantly in bloom!


Jude the Obscure

Jude the Obscure

A David Austin Rose - highly scented, with lovely, loose petals. I am a particular fan of David Austin roses - they can't be beat for color, bloom quality, scent, and an ability to re-bloom with amazing regularity.

Dinsdale and Sandy

Dinsdale and Sandy

Our first two boxers. We got Sandstorm when Dinsdale was diagnosed with cancer. Our vet thought the stimulation would help. Playing with Sandy kept Dinsdale alive for three more years.
