This little dove took a bath and got all tuckered out. Here he is taking a mid-day nap.
This is my herb garden in the backyard. I just planted the fall herbs, so they are still growing. I have Green Onions, Apple Mint (for tea), curly parsley, Lavender, Rosemary. I also just planted Broccoli, Lettuce & Purple Hull Beans. Purple Hull beans are so neat. They are purple string beans that turn green in boiling water. Cool!
Here is one of the first satsumas our Louisiana Satsuma tree has produced. We have four (4) total this year. One of each member of the family! They should be turning orange soon and ready to eat.
Here is our dog, Tug (her full name is "Tug at your Heartstrings" since that is what she did to get us to take her home). She is on a mission to catch the fat squirrel in our backyard. We put out corn, peanuts and other squirrel delicacies, but sometimes Mr. Squirrel likes to nibble from the bird feeder. Tug is a hunting dog at heart and she smells the unmistakable scent of squirrel. We had to quit feeding the squirrel for a while because Mr. Squirrel was bringing his cousin with him. Look below and you will see his cousin. The Hurricane wiped out the tree we think the cousin was living in so the cousin relocated to another yard. We are back to feeding the squirrel much to delight of our dog.
Yes it is big black rat.
