"Chicken Little" loves to help… She frequents the local Home Depot with us quite often, as did our Gracie girl. Since springtime is starting to make an appearance, we've decided to plant a few trees! Here's our very first redbud (the Oklahoma State tree). I'm pretty excited about seeing it outside my window… they are just the prettiest part of our landscape here every year, ranging from blooms of pink to purple! Thank goodness we staked them before our first tornado of the season rolled through… and they survived the first major storm without incident. The patio is getting a little color too, and is becoming our favorite hangout place. The pup is sure to stick her nose in everything, checking out every new flower and herb we plant. And after a long day of playing, chasing, & running in the sun, she settles down on the concrete to cool off for a quick nap before it starts all over again. Hope wherever you call home, you've been able to enjoy a bit of the outdoors finally with family & friends!
