January came in with a bang!
Makes me happy that I live where I do.
So nice to just be able to look at it, walk in it
and just plain enjoy it.
So glad I don't have to shovel it or go anywhere.
February brought more ice and snow.
My little snow bunny..rubs her face in the snow.
To the farm in March to celebrate birthdays.
Bev and her hubs, the twins Ryan and Amanda and me!!
(that's hubs, holding Mack, with his daughter Amanda)
I did quite a bit of planting this past April.
In May we enjoyed bursting buds!!
and the birds get to share their food.
June found me frequenting the garden centers.
Mollie and I took a road trip.
I think I needed some new post material.
Weren't you all getting tired of birds and squirrels?
Another road trip (local) in July to visit the lake in
Boiling Springs and it's inhabitants.
Lunch at the Tavern there was a treat.
Tree pruning time around here always disturbs some nests.
Back to Bee Haven Acres for a family picnic.
Great food and swimming too.
Mack turned one in August..
What a mess she made of her cake..such fun.
Thunderstorms blessed us in September.
More garden center visits in October..
Welcome fall !!
In November we lost my sisters dog Jazz.
Still missing her every day.
December took me back to....
you guessed it..the garden centers.
Between Christmas and New Years we had to say good bye to my beloved Max.
He brought with him sixteen years of love and affection .
He has left a big hole in my heart and a very sad Mollie.
...A very devastating end to 2016.
