I moved into my little cottage in late September and this is my first Spring here. I am so pleased with how beautiful the yard is. I spend many hours outside with the dogs in this great environment. (click on any pic to enlarge)
Here's the row of blooming flowers on one side of the yard
I would love to tell you the names of the flowers but, although I can care for them, I don't remember all
Buster the Boston Terrier, in his element
Hope spends a lot of time looking for chipmunks
Stella and Buster in the background, waiting for me to throw the ball
I'm happy here, so are my dogs. Come by and visit if you like the idea of your dog staying too
These two aren’t inclined to play together for too long, but just enough for me to take a few pictures of these two handsome canines. You can click on any picture to enlarge it.
We had some sun yesterday. Every little bit counts. There's sweet Lexy in the picture too.
Rusty in the sun, shiny and bright.
Henry the Cute. Loads of personality, this one.
Just a lazy moment of warm sun in the yard. Played a little ball, sniffed plants and soaked up the warm Fall weather.
Tassen the regal boy in the back, Nalah's standing with her tail towards us and Stella, trotting in.
Time to throw the ball for Stella
She loves a good game of ball in the sun
Tassen and Stella being patient with picture taking time
I’m so happy to sneak in more walks in the warmth of this slow moving Fall. It’s like grabbing another handful of Halloween candy.
Rusty is ready for a hike
Although Frenchies have long since been bred for bull baiting, in the Fall leaves Rusty could easily slip up on an oblivious grazing bull and bite an ankle. Can you find Rusty? (Click on any picture to enlarge)
A favorite find on a hike is an old stone wall that once designated a property line. These walls were built from the 1600s up into the 1800s. I like to see if I can spot an old foundation of a house or barn that once stood on the property.
A panoramic view of this side of the lake..
And this side
Rusty went "out on a limb" to check out the temperature of the water which he shortly found out moments after the picture was taken by slipping into the water for a surprise swim
It was a warm Fall day and we sat listening to the quiet and watched the occasional bird on the water and in the sky.
I hope you’re enjoying all the pictures I’m posting of our walks in the area. I’m really getting into the beauty of this place. I’ve lived here for two years and I keep seeing more and more I want to show you. Please click on any of the pictures you want to get a better view of, they’ll enlarge. Please enjoy!
Kingston Lighthouse on the Hudson River
Small waves on the river in hightide
Meet Miss Shelby, she's a sweet girl who loves a scent to follow on walks
Oh and looky here, Mr. Rusty a fine Frenchie, likes Shelby and sweetly follows her lead
The light was bright with a strong pre-winter breeze off the river.
A quick look at the water from high
As you can see my usual view of canines in walks is mostly from the rear
The tall and the short of it
We could really feel the wind close to the water. The tide was high and there was the sound of the waves on shore to listen to
