Finally, A Breath of Fresh Air!





Finally we have some nice cool air from up north. The temp is 51 right now as I sit here writing this, the wind is coming from the north, low humidity, low dew points, ahhhhhhhhhh life is good :). We took both cats and Quasi the boxer to vet today for routine vaccinations and to have Quasi's heart checked, he has boxer cardiomyopathy, he has been on medication for the condition for over 3 years now, usually they do not live a year so I feel blessed, the vet said his heart sounds great. My dear sweet little Callie tired to bite both me and the vet when we were getting her out of the carrier.

The photos are up close and personal views of my brugmasias. The blooms are all done now, so no more wonderful fragrance, I will slow down on the watering and they will spend the winter in the basement.

Lovely, lovely flowers. And sweet looking dogs (and cat). You are blessed to be able to keep your boxer so long after the diagnosis!

Blessings

Very, very pretty.

I've started a new blog, linked to my gardening blog. If you watch the right sidebar as you scroll down, under "Family and Favorites," you'll see "Making Memories." I've started to post on our little Wisconsin trip.

We had fun, but there wasn't the color you might expect. Did you notice that?

Cool - I like the close-ups!

We've haven't made it out of the 40's the last two days - what a change from the humid 80s over the weekend!!

Great pictures!! Sounds like you have some great pets, even if one tried to bit you.

Those are lovely flowers--I like how the color deepens in all of the pictures.

Funny you mentioned the dogs and cats, as I was going to comment on how cute your two gardening assistants are. They both have such interesting facial markings--I love how that gives dogs such instant personality. :)

I can almost smell the Good luck to Quasi. One of my dogs was given a few months to live by the vet and she lived for 4 more years. My husband used to mix a small amount of his body building powder supplement into her food-seriously it gave her tons of energy!
