Moving along

Well, we had such a great weekend with all the Dogblogger crew...arrived on Friday just in time for the Alpha's fabulous barbecued brisket. On Saturday we enjoyed the Tutankhamun exhibit at the Dallas Museum of Art, then met the Vicar for an excellent Indian meal...then on Sunday we went to church and enjoyed hearing Mid-Life Rookie preach! A lot for one weekend, yes? The dogs mostly got along, although Amie did tell that young whippersnapper Tuesday to settle down once or twice. (Tuesday wasn't doing anything wrong; it's just that Amie is OLD.)

"I had a good time, but now I'm ready to go home."

Unbloggables at work are weighing on my mind tonight, so I thought I'd escape to the garden:
When the landscapers planted our caladiums last spring, they supposedly disposed of the previous winter's cyclamen bulbs. But when I started getting this bed ready for fall, I found seven dormant cyclamen that had been overlooked. They don't usually last more than a year, but I replanted them, and lo and behold, here they are. (Amie has nearly stomped the pansies into oblivion.)


The camellias have been wonderful, too.

After I recharge the camera, I'll get some pictures of the azaleas, too.

Ah, beauty and color. It's still dreary here, so I enjoyed this.

Give Amie a scratch for me.

beautiful flowers! And, I think it is the "job" of mature dogs to remind the young ones about "respect"....my old dog does that sometimes to our younger one - just for the heck of it - "Hey" she says, "I've been on this earth longer than YOU, so chill"....well, except it sounds to me like, YIP! YAP! SNAP!...but I get the message. :-)

That blogger meet-up sounds like a wonderful way to spend the weekend.

Oh I bet you had such a great time!!! Holding you up for the unbloggable...I hate that and I understand.

That first photo looks like Amie just kicked off her shoes before she laid down.

It was wonderful to have all three of y'all with us! Thanks for making the drive.

Blogger meet-ups and gorgeous posies are a great antidote to unbloggables! And those are exceptionally gorgeous posies.

Sweet ole Amie. I send her virtual skritches.

Wow, barbecue brisket and Indian food in one weekend. I'm salivating! And your flowers are gorgeous!

Newman says to tell Amie that it is perfectly acceptable for the noble, wiser, older dog to give the youngins "what for" when necessary.

What a great weekend! And since it is white and frigid out and I am wearing longjohns today, thank you for the flower pictures.

we do have crocus in bloom, so I can't say we are without flower, however we have maple syrup ;')
