Thankful on Thursday

We're so thankful for our beautiful stream in the late afternoon of a 95 degree spring day.






Ruby

Bart



Our spring has been beautiful.  Check out all of our yucca!  We got some late rain; and now it's warming up.  We're thankful today.

Love,

-Bart and Ruby

95 degrees?! OMG! Mum and I have just been for a walk in the pouring and very cold rain. It's more like February than May here. Can I come and live with you?! Deccy x

Beautiful, just beautiful photos today. Thank YOU!

Priscilla said...

Thanks so much for sharing those beautiful pictures of Bart and Ruby! Whenever I see Ruby, I thought I saw our Laura!

So beautiful!

It's so weird: I just miss Laura terribly at the moment. How I miss her!!!

That looks like so much fun! Guess mama should stop complaining when it gets in the low 80's, although we've been lucky that it doesn't stay hot for long before it cools down to the 70's again. That can't last, but we sure enjoy it while it does. Jed doesn't do well in heat. Neither does mama.

I need one of these in my back yard. The kids and Maggie would have a field day in that water.

Sue said...

Oh my dogs are sooo jealous. They can't wait to go swimming and you have your very own stream.

The Boston Lady said...

Your stream looks absolutely lovely and that sounds awfully hot for CA in the spring! Unless you are in the desert part of course. Love that last shot. Ann TBL

Hiking Hounds said...

What a great stream and trail to walk on!

RYKER said...

How lovely! But if it is 95 in the spring watch out for the summer heat!

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Your stream looks so refreshing and relaxing. We have had a decent spring too, but the heat and humidity of summer is on its way here too.

Winnie said...

Like Deccy I am SO jealous of the nice weather I am seeing on so many blogs in other countries.

I have had just about enough of wind and rain.

Love and licks, Winnie - a soggy doggy with a sad face :(

Angela J. said...

Oh Bart and Ruby, I would be thankful for a beautiful day like that too! My rotties used to love to play in the water too, but would only swim if it wasn't over their head.

JackDaddy said...

If you would send it down this way, it would be appreciated! :)

Nola said...

I'd be thankful for that too! Thank you for your comments and advice about Plymouth

That looks like a cooling and most refreshing stream. I'm sure it helped on that 95 deg. day.

Dear Bart and Ruby,

I LOVE your new header photo. It's gorgeous! What are those white flowers? I had to blow up the picture to take a good look and still don't know what they might be. Is 95 degrees very hot? Sounds like it. We could do with some of that here now.

Tanya said...

awww bart and ruby, ozzy wishes he could swim with you!

animal lover, quilt lover said...

Beautiful!!! You and the stream!!!
That's what we have missing -- water!!!! Zoie hates water, if we had a stream maybe she would be tempted enough to learn to love it!!
Tom and I will celebrate our 30 years together in July!!

You're so lucky to live near such a beautiful stream! (And to have it so empty! Everytime we find a "nice" place in Australia, it's always crowded with people!!! Grrr!

It looks so wonderful for your pups to cool off in that clear water. The Yuccas are huge! They are the oddest plants, yet beautiful nonetheless.

Molly, Taffy, Monty and Winnie said...

We are most jealous of your lovely weather. Hopefully it won't be too long before we can have a super time just like you two.

animal lover, quilt lover said...

Thanks for your visit to our blog!! Love you guys so much!!!
We have had many days now the got up to 95 degrees!! No nice cool stream to get into tho!!

Mango said...

You guys are pretty tough to go out in that hotness with all your black furs. Good thing that swimming hole is there to cool you down.

Slobbers,
Mango
