We are trying to determine where to place the National Wildlife Federation‘s Certified Wildlife Habitat Plaque we received last winter for the property. The dogs are very proud to be part of the environmentally sensitive landscaping and help by digging strategic holes in certain critical areas and especially keeping the gardens clear of moles, voles, and bunnies (you know I am kidding about the proud part, right). The first grapes of the year are starting to bud, and if you look carefully you can see tiny tiny little grapes on the vine. Sofie and Lulu especially like to chew on the grape stalks (yum… tasty). We just got 2 new rain barrels to try and hold back some of the erosion that is going on from years of drought. We are losing so much top soil and everything is just turning to sand (which Sofie really likes, because to her, it is one big sand box). I love the yard in spring. This morning we sat and watched some new orange and brown butterflies (I need to get the book out to see what kind they are) suckling on the azaleas.
And the ducks are back quacking their heads off and walking all over the pool cover. They make Lulu and Sofie crazy because the pool area is fenced off and the dogs can’t run at the ducks to chase them away.
Spring has come to the Mid-Atlantic.
Just another dogdaz morning at the zoo <3
