Wonderful Wednesday

Hi All -

It's a beautiful day here in south central PA - the temperatures today are supposed to get up into the 60's . We really appreciate these days because we know what's coming!!!

I've gotten sidetracked with my GFG blocks lately. I've been working on some Christmas projects and you know how that is. There is only so much time in the day to get things done and I'm afraid my flower garden isn't growing much lately :o) But here is a recent completion -

And now...the adventures of Duncan and Hamish. Today, when I went outside to photograph by GFG block, I noticed Duncan was, once again, sitting in the iris in back of the fence that is supposed to keep him out. He is such a little devil!! There was a small space where I think he squeezed in -he's typical scottie. He gets his nose in a space and just keeps pushing and pushing until he can wiggle his way in. Unfortunately, that nose can get him in trouble. The other day he got out of the yard by going through a hole in the fence, which he had made previously. I had patched that hole and he decided that he would work the patch loose (really, it was more like "rip it off"). Hamish alerted me by barking at the door (his "come quick" bark) that his brother had escaped. And, sure enough, there was Duncan, nose to the ground following some critter's trail, running down through the back yards, completely ignoring my calls. This was early in the morning and I was still in jammies and slippers - ugh!!! I got my shoes and socks on, decided to get into the car to head him off, but then heard Hamish barking again. I decided to check the back yard one more time and there was Duncan, heading back toward our yard. I called and, miracle of miracles, he came to me. So he was escorted back into the yard and now the patch has been replaced by plywood temporarily. My yard is really something - I have fences within the fences to keep that Duncan Devil in. Thank goodness, too, for Hamish - he really does tattle on his brother and this isn't the first time that he's alerted us to something that Duncan shouldn't be doing - you know, his Lassie impression - come quick, the barn's on fire and Timmie has fallen in the well!!! Needless to say, life isn't boring at our house :o)

The photos are Duncan behind the fence and Hamish basking in the welcome sun.
Hope you all have a wonderful day and keep smiling -

Honestly, I could picture the WHOLE thing!
:) And the best thing is that you got plenty of exercise without even thinking!
Gorgeous flower!

Your hexie flower is beautiful! I love the yellows and greens.
Duncan sounds like quite the character. He and Snickerdoodle would have oodles of fun together - lol! Hamish and Weasley sound a lot alike - more sedate, more cautious but still full of fun.
