a photo challenge and spring


Allie is having a photo challenge, and procrastinating me waited until the last minute to enter. The theme is pets, and so naturally, I've chosen this one of Hodge Podge. He's been my walking companion during these warm spring days. His muzzle is always to the ground as we walk through the woods, turning over leaves and whiffing flowers. He's a gentle and loyal boy, he makes my life complete.

Spring. I could just forget about the rest and blog about this season from here on out. Sound good?
These wild irises bloom every April up on one of the hills behind my house. Yesterday I hiked up to see their progress. The new greens have covered the ground, promising purple blooms to come soon.

Spring makes everyone happier. It's such a simple thing. Like a smile. Seeing it makes you feel better inside.
