Archer Graduated from his 8 week Obedience Class .
We had such fun & the nicest group!
To help celebrate, we made a little gift bag of Archer's favourite peanut butter biscuits for everyone ♥ and a box full for all the doggies still waiting to find their 'forever homes'
Not wanting to disturb Mum, this is the best pic I could get ...
All is well in the nest (I check every time I'm upstairs in the studio) & can't wait to see the babes emerging...
We were afraid we'd lost our Purple Sand cherry last year.
The large Maple in our yard was taking all the sunshine.
We hoped a good trim back of the dead wood would do the trick & it did!
I love these delicate blossoms ...
Yesterday, butterflies were fluttering about through the branches ♥
In daily life
we must see
that it is not happiness
that makes us grateful,
that makes us
