We would welcome some rain.
It's been very hot and sunny and it's so dry here.
When you walk on the grass it crunches. But still we are surrounded by beauty.
and the wild raspberries are delish.
How come the deer haven't found these?
Walking in the bush is best for the dog.
Lots of shade
and this dog always ends up with grass on his nose. :)
So, I have done the 'lemon and water' thing on the outdoor cats (except for Sierra, outdoor as in screened-in porch or fenced yard) and will give you an update as the summer progresses to see if it actually works. I check them with a flea comb every second day or so... finger's crossed. If it works it is better for the cats and better on the wallet.
I got a beautiful parcel in the mail and I'll show you what was in it tomorrow.
