My walks through the orchard

I take walks twice a day though the orchards around my house.
This is one of my walking areas earlier this month.

The trees are full of leaves now and give a nice shade.

I can't imagine a prettier place to walk.

Sprinkles and Petals.

Last weekend in the Central Valley of California, it's sprinkling.

The almond trees are blooming and some of the petals are on the ground looking a bit like snow. Birds are singing and looking for a mate.

It all makes me feel a bit sleepy.

Hubby is still in bed but he's going to work tonight (graveyard shift), and I still feel like snuggling up with him before he has to leave.

Carvings From a Tailgate Sale

Hubby and a co-worker went to the tailgate sale, which is now located at the fairgrounds.

He bought me these three wood carvings to show that he was thinking of me the whole time.

The two big ones are dolphins. The little one is a whale.

I love them, but they also make me a little sad too. Hubby bought all three for three dollars. I also carve and wonder what my carvings will be worth in a few years.

Ice Cold Tomato

Our cat, Freya. Photo owned by Janice Seagraves.

My husband got up early to let the dogs out, he picked up the cat, Freya, and stuck her under his bathrobe.

He looked at my tomatoes, now dried up husks, and in the middle of the withered leaves he spotted a bright shinny yellow pear tomato.

Hurrying over to pick the tomato, he then tossed it into his mouth. Startled by the ice cold fruit, he jogged in place.

Freya losing her place in his warm bathrobe, dug her claws in.

Inside, snuggled in my nice cozy bed, I wondered about the yelling was outside. I shrugged and went back to sleep.
