Last night at dusk, I took the photo above. There's still a lot of work to do, but we're thinking of planting some tomatoes, green peppers and leaf lettuce here instead of replanting it as a flower garden. We have made a definite decision yet. The area still needs a lot of work, but at least it doesn't look like a jungle. If we do decide on the vegetable garden, we will have to move the Oriental poppies and the Iris that are planted there. I love homegrown vegetables and wish this area was ten times larger.
Today the boys wanted to come and play with Dakota. It was a beautiful day, so we went and bought 50 feet of line. We fastened a clip on it so we could fasten it to Dakota's collar. Then we took him to the park across the street to play a game of fetch.
Dakota isn't always willing to give up whatever he fetches. Here is Brandon trying to get him to drop the ball.
As we headed for home, Dakota spotted the neighbour's little Pomeranian, who had been barking at him the entire time. They barked at each other through the fence and had lots of fun jumping at each other. One of these days we will take both dogs out to get better acquainted.
