|Our sweet angel face left us at the age of 14.|
He was born in April 2002 and we had him for 12 years.
We will love you forever Buck!

|I built the walkway last year. Lined with weed cloth, |
5 tons of gravel and a bunch of stones to border.
Kept me busy for a bit...
|Louise in the center is looking out for the park. |
Started the side walkways, have the Mariposite outcrop and planted 72 baby Salvias.
|Lulu, named after Bea's two most loved women:|
Louise Brooks and Louis Veronica Chiccone.
|Lulu and Bea|
|Another sitting area where we never sit :)|
|The rose garden, loved by rabbits and squirrels. |
I only sit for the picture.
|Mark takes 2 seconds to sit|
|I have the arbor assembled ready for this entrance way|
|Rain is the perfect time to dig up the lavender bed|
|Flooding the park|
|My boots are muddy inside and out.|
|Soaked to the bones digging up the site|
|come on rain!!!! Love the soaking and |
YES....I am dancing in the rain with my headphones on.
|Bed is ready, dug up, fertilized and filled back....lavenders are lining up for planting|
|Lavenders on the front|
|72 Salvias, 85 Lavenders, 30 Daisies and god knows what else are all in the ground.|
|Baby Lavenders are happy|
|Woodland in the backyard|
|Woodland and puppy yard|
|Rock creek and men kitchen.|
Park building is a lot of work and it spends a lot of money. Builds muscles and makes the body ache.
My Landscape Architect lady, Anne Attinger is a genius and her plan is perfect for my taste :) and perfect for our ranch.

London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Michael Tilson Thomas.
That all should sound reasonably entertaining.
I even got new curls for this concert, but they frizzed up by the end,
because my head was hurting so much.
Benjamin Britten, Shostakovich and Sibelius.
A lot of bad music was written, but to put them all into one evening is not fair.
I could've been equally annoyed attending a rock concert.
I'm not complaining. It's not in my nature to complain :)
At least we looked very pretty and feeling good about deciding not
to renew our subscription for next season.
We have a lot of good music to hear that cost far less.
But will you look at my new flapper curlies?
I love 'em!!!!!!

|National Symphony Orchestra of Mexico night.|
|Feel like Edwardian for the night. Why not?|
|My handsome baby|
|Who is ready for a concert?|
|Buck will hold down the rugs while we are gone.|
That's his favorite job.
|Spitzers wants to go.|
He is always ready to party.
