First I want to share my next (?) project. The playful use of Shoo-fly blocks caught my attention. I'll be digging into my stash to find fabrics for this.
Summer in our part of AZ means rain (weird huh?). It's like living in Florida or one of the other hot humid southern states. I'm always thankful for the rain, it is so needed for our wells, plus the wildlife thrives and landscape turns green. So far each rain has been a super cloudburst, water flows across the ground like ocean waves. Below is our side lane turned into a small river. We have two swales, one above the barn and one below so water can flow onto the wash but it's rained too much too fast.
Silly backyard roosters take refuge under the pomegranate tree and get soaked. They have a coop to get into, also a shed to go under. Oh well.
Rain brings out these crawly critters, first one we've spotted this year. He was crossing the dirt road at mail boxes. This one is an Arizona Blonde. Gives me hee-bee-jee-bee jitters.
And some (secret) news- This little girl is Mirabella. Husband and I have applied to adopt her. She is a standard poodle, about seven months old.we both think she is a beauty. Sad thing is Mirabella is going blind. She was the only survivor of parvo in her litter. I'm not understanding how that works but we don't care about the blindness.
