“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”

    It's a dreary morning over here, 66 degrees and overcast. Oops, just looked out and it's starting to rain. Hopefully back to the sunshine tomorrow! xoxo

  10. WOW what a show your Crepe Myrtles are featuring.
    It appears our Crepe Myrtle was spayed way before we got it. It might have 2 blooms a season but it grows about 10' each year. We had to pay to have it cut back so finally we just had it cut down. Madi and Mom
