Summer is almost over. It's just lovely weather now, not a speck of humidity and lovely fresh mornings.
This weekend Sam stopped by with the kids. I have to say, he's an amazing father. I don't know of another man who would take a 4 year old, a six year old and a 7 week old voluntarily - and still be able to smile!
I think this little one knows something we don't!

This is Violet, the watch dog. She is watching for squirrels or, if she's really lucky, deer. She will bark violently and summon her partners in crime to help her really raise a ruckus.
Here is Adam taking his turn watching for the deer to come and eat the neighbor's apples.
This is poor Faust who can't figure out how to fit himself on the little settee. He's a bit embarrassed by this and has to do all his barking from the ground.
As you can see, being a watch dog is hard work. There is a lot of waiting involved.
Watch dogs springing into action!
What the watch dogs watch!

I have a great old book about the language of flowers. In Victorian times you had to be a little careful about what flowers you sent in your bouquet!
I am worthy of you
Red and white together (I doubt they mean stripped but that's all I have) Unity
Heartlessness; a boaster (poor Annabelle)
I share your sentiments
And this lovely poppy just appeared!
