Meet Copper, the Beagle Pup
Category: Odds n' Ends | Posted: Tue Aug 07, 2007 6:42 pm
I've just been so busy lately! One of the reasons is that we have just gotten a new Beagle pup! The kids have named him "Copper" after the hound from Disney's "The Fox and the Hound". He is settling in well...pretty good on the housebreaking part. I've never had a Beagle before. My dh had one growing up. I had a hound mix growing up, so I have some experience with hounds.
This pup is pretty smart, but can be quite vocal (which I am learning is true in Beagles). He does really want to please so this helps with the training. He is so loving and playful! I've gotten him to play fetch, and he is learning to sit. He already knows the word "No" which helps when he starts to try and pull up my ferns!

I Hate Love Bugs!
Category: Odds n' Ends | Posted: Mon Jun 04, 2007 12:34 am
They are SWARMING in my area right now! You can't go outside without having them ALL over you. They seem to be attracted to the weirdest stuff too. My husband just finished staining a pergola that we built and they are all over the stain in huge quantities. The above picture is a clump of them near our French doors. We tried to eat breakfast under our new pergola and it was a disaster!
More about lovebugs?
On a happier note....I am THRILLED that my echinacea has opened:
It smells so sweet too!
AND....my Nora Barlowe columbine has opened.....my first EVER...
I just got my order of Black Knight butterfly bushes....they are so nice. I've found this excellent seller on eBay. Everthing I've bought from him is in fantastic condition and seems to transistion well. I got a Black Knight from another seller and it was kind of wimpy in comparison. I ended up spending $1.95 a bush for the good ones and $3.99 for the wimpy one...go figure. So now I have 9 butterfly bushes....can't wait until they are big, blooming, and burgeoning with butterflies!
This is what the flowers WILL look like:
oooooh, I can't wait!
