Howling fur Halloween!

Stanzie says,
"Good Grief, I hope George the Lad doesn't see me like this!"
Maybe, if I fly over the pond on my broom, George and Tess will go trick or treating with me!

Wyatt says,
"Do these horns make me look bad?"

Hey, who put zucchini on my pitchfork?
It's hard to look scary with zucchini.

We just had to share cuzin Woody's pictures!
He couldn't decide what he wanted to be fur Howl-O-Ween.
Woody and Evan 'Go Bananas!'
Woody tries Wine-ing!
Woody tries his paw at being a Lumberjack!
Treats fur you, Woody!


Hope you get all treats and no tricks!
Wyatt and Stanzie

Fall is for Planting!!

Fall is an excellent time to plant, at least in the Pacific Northwest.
Today, we are shopping for Ornamental Grasses.
"Hey, I just saw a grass called 'Little Bunny'!"
"Can we get some of those?"
We always like plants on sale!
We never get tired of Japanese Maples.
How to decided?
They are all so beautiful!
I think I see the perfect tree!

Happy Digging!

Where's Waldo?

Meet Waldo, a 9 year old Welsh Terrier we met on our walk!
You gotta love that smile :D
Does he remind you of any Welsh dogs we know?

Stanzie was completely speechless...which is funny, because she usually barks and gets really excited when meeting new furiends! Look out George, Stanzie might get tired of waiting....just sayin'

A Yen for Zen

I helped my Mom and Dad make a Zen Garden for one of our clients!
First, we picked out some rocks that symbolized Buddha and some animals.
We found a big fish, a snail and a frog.
Then, we made a bed of crushed granite, placed the animals so they were looking at the Buddha stone and raked a pattern into the gravel.

Meanwhile back home....
our neighbor has been making these lovely garden screens.
He recently gave us this one, as a memorial, for Dad's father who recently passed away.
We are so thrilled!

Here are some of Arnie's other pieces. 

I give it 4 paws up.
If you have a 'Yen for Zen' and are interested in a lovely garden screen, send us an e-mail to wyattsriot2010 at gmail dot com. Arnie's prices are very reasonable....shipping, probably not so reasonable. Just drive over here and we will set you up!!
