I was slightly distracted today, working in the studio with this beautiful Dogwood tree outside the window. It's so big you can see part of it here and out the kitchen on main level.
It's so tall that a good picture would not be possible without a mighty tall ladder!
So, in my mantra of embracing serendipity, I stopped to take some pics to share.
Body Guard came home in a pensive mood as a small part of his tax forms are missing~~~ kinda called a W-2, which could be on any of the 3 levels of our house. When in these pensive serious moments, I get distracted with other things in a lighter mood. It seems to balance out things like tax documents. Opposites do attract. ;)
Anyways, in the moment of snapping a couple of pics I decided to open the window that rolls outward and see if I could just barely sit on the edge a bit and get some closer pics of the lovely Dogwood tree in full bloom.
And then he came upstairs and went WHAT?
Well it put the tax form hunt in perspective.
He started sweating more then.
I love Dogwood trees. I especially love the pink ones. But the ones that sprout about our neck of the woods are white.
See, the glare with the window.
Well, let's fix that.
Speaking of Dog. That is a
bear dog walking on a path. Yep, Raven. She doesn't know yet I'm up here.
yep, the path is getting worn. She has routines in the day. They take a good swim in the pond below and then we stop hearing the ducks quack too much........ yikes.
And that's how I got these clearer views.
I almost leaned too much.
Body Guard was getting squimmish by this time. Kinda like when we rode the Ferris Wheel years ago on a date. He really is not one for heights. That's a story for another day. I digress........
Yeppers that's about 30 feet down to a "supposedly" garden I have never yet tended.
I need to find some shade-loving plants for the middle. We do have some Hostas that come back year after year. After the third time I yelled "snake" I quit with gardening. Snakes scare me to death.
closer up and hanging out literally!
This was worth "hanging out" for! :0
And here a few bunnies hanging out with me in the studio while I come up with some basket goodies. Meghan, I just can't give them up. They are waiting for you to visit! ;)
Now back to sorting.
I hope you won't be dissapointed. I'm pulling some patterns that I've stitched and I hardly ever (really can't think of any) that I stitch twice. So a little love to share later. I've made a good mess of floss and patterns.
Methinks I need to get back to it.
Thanks for hanging with me,
