Many Pleasures

I think my tomatoes are trying to tell me that they love me
and
I love them too !!!

Look what I picked yesterday!

Oh No! Bugs and Bunnies!

There has been a bug attack on the leaves of so many plants in my garden
and
the bugs have been very hungry !

So a trip to the farm store was needed for advice.
I brought Viper an insect dusting powder to feed them
and I hope they like it !

It is my favorite place to visit
and
just like always I lost my heart to the little bunnies.
Sigh !
 Maybe someday they can come home to live with me.


I added Grilled Red Snapper in Creole Sauce to my growing list
of addictive Cuban foods along with black beans on Friday night.

I wonder if dining on a candlelit patio listening to Latin music
has anything to do with this addiction
or
maybe it is the Sangria!



The water is warm, the jacuzzi is bubbling and the pool is ready for summer.

 It is time to open the box of stemless wine glasses my sweet
friend gave me.

Alas, I think I need to go swimsuit shopping
because
 I don't think anything on me is the same size as last year
except my feet !!


Oh my ! Dax turned five Sunday.
He celebrated with pizza, cupcakes and birthday wishes
and
I silently wished he would
not
grow up so very fast for his Nana.

Warm Smiles,

Dottie

  7. I love tomatoes too.. I hated them up until I quit smoking ( 5 years ago).
    My goodness those bunnies are adorable!!! Makes me want a pile of them myself.: )
    I am with you on the "feet" thing ~ I am trying to get myself back into swimsuit mode but I am having troubles. We just opened our pool today and it is a yucky shade of green.

    Have a great Holiday.
