It has been a busy few months. The warmer winter has ushered in spring earlier than we were used to (at least here in upstate NY) and with it, the fever to start outdoor & gardening activities. We enjoyed the crocuses, grape hyacinths, daffodils, tulips, irises and now, the rhodondendrons. Mowing is again, a weekly activity.

The bonsai trees are out and all leafed out. Some had blossoms. My pink wisteria didn't bloom this year because I harvested 2 seed pods this winter=2 baby pink wisterias!

The dogs are enjoying their morning walks with our friend's yellow lab. We also have a very friendly new next door doggy neighbor, a year old rottweiler, who loves treats and playtime with us.
So far, Hanna is used to wearing 4 booties now. Hopefully, no more paw ulcers...Louie is still his very sociable (to people, not male dogs) self. Sebastian, our 3rd dog (he thinks he is), is doing well and for a 16 y/o, he looks and acts young.
