Well, I guess no one wanted to start an April Chat, so I'm gonna! LOL!! Today's been a cold crappy day after weeks & weeks of glorious beautiful DRY weather. So let's all hope that this year will be a gorgeous one for lots of blooms!

I won't have any rose photos to share for another six weeks at least, so I thought I'd share pictures of something else that's growing at our house - our new puppy "Sprite" (as in a mischievous little gremlin, not the soft drink).

The fourth photo is so human that it's posiively eerie.

Gorgeous doggie, Mike.

Why do I suddenly have the urge to jump on a plane and come and kidnap that dog ?
I want him !!!
The only thing that would make him cuter is a pot of million bells on his head !

She is a cutie, for sure! Here she is showing all her powers of concentration. It's as if she's thinking, "And now, I shall make this napkin burst into flames!"

No worries, Mike. She wasn't offended - and doesn't have a strong sense of gender yet, anyway!

Wow, Toni, you're really experiencing extremes!

Snow and puppies. What a start to April. Hilarious! No snow here. And the weather is nice even though it will be a long time till rose buds show.

Forcythia looks great today.

No roses yet bud buds everywhere and some great new bronze growth, my favorite time of year!

Poppies are popping up everywhere! This was a darker than the other ones here, a bit more reddish than the normal solid orange as shown in the edges.

My sedum clay pipes are overflowing, I am pinching a few pieces to put in other spots too.

My new physocarpus Dart's Gold, just planted it last week.


One of my favorite plants, Euphorbia characias 'Tasmanian Tiger', planted from a 4" pot last summer, seems quite happy here.

Those clay pipes were such a good idea, Sue. They look great!

Mike, she has such an expressive face that you must automatically come up with captions for each photo.

Thank you Sue! It's getting close to her bed time here in the Eastern time zone, so she's going to say her prayers now...
