I Like Ike and I Like Flowers!!!

What a fun day Rebecca and I had yesterday bopping through the CORNELL FARMS Garden center and then out for a great sushi lunch!!! More pix below but first I had to show you our beautiful Ike who is Megs brother.   They are littermates and this is Ikes owner Bonnie showing him recently as a Veteran (10 years old) at the Atlanta Specialty show.

BISS Ch. Chinarose I Like Ike OFA ROM  was BEST VETERAN that day and I am such a proud mom to see how wonderful Ike is still looking and Bonnie said he showed like he hadn’t left the ring.  It had been 4 years !  Thank you Bonnie for sending me the photos and for taking such great care of Ike.  Tell him Meg says HI!!!

Yesterday before I took off with Rebecca I snapped this shot of a Junco in my garden …..he was completely across the yard and I had my 400 zoom on the tripod.  The Junco stepped into a beam of sunlight hitting the feeder and this is what I got

Below is Rebecca in the greenhouse by the orange watering can display..we bought a lot of primroses yesterday and Rebecca got a wonderful birdhouse

I’ll have the cam on all day today.  It’s raining now but that just means good viewing and no glare!!  Have a great weekend everyone!!!!
