Skywatch Friday - May 7, 2021 (and Floral Friday Fotos)
I think they are altocumulus clouds. To me they look like tractor tracks. A little bit different from the usual clouds I see. Certainly not a pretty as puffy cumulus against a blue blue sky!
The Moonshine yarrow is blooming!
In the A to Z last month I used Johnny Jump-ups for J and Violas for V. While Johnny Jump-ups are a kind of viola, here's the difference.
Johnny Jump-ups jump up on tall stems. These are volunteers from last year.
Violas stay short.
Dog feet. Yes, I am posting a photo of dog feet. I just think they looked cute. They're spotted!
Those are Mickey's feet. I filled his pool, his first time ever with one. He likes it and mostly walks in circles with his muzzle under water.
This photo illustrates how my yard really looks! It's not all pretty flower beds and manicured pathways! I am working on killing the grass in this farthest back part of the backyard. The clump of Virginia creeper in the upper right is hiding the compost pile (concrete block sides). It wasn't planned, I didn't know it would grow from "composted" stems! If I don't get new weed eater line I'm going to have to break out the hand clippers and cut those edges.
I wanted the soil from a container that had old daffodil bulbs, so after removing them I planted them in the herb garden. I've never had a dog so interested in what I'm doing in the garden as Mickey. I've had Border collie mixes and Australian Cattledog mixes before, and they were smart. But, Mickey is a different kind of smart. A trouble-making smart, a watch-and-figure-it-out smart. His trainers say he "over-thinks things." So, he saw me bury something (the bulbs) and as soon as I turned my back to put the trowel away, he had to find out what.
