  11. That's one lovely tour through your garden.
    I could just sit here for a long while and scroll up and down your post.
    Pine trees,... collecting rain water,... maybe I shouldn't look at these kind of posts, I just get homesick ;)
    Cheers from the 'desert' ;)

  12. I aspire to live in a place that resembles this, even at a distance. One day... :-) By the way, that's a chipping sparrow to the left of your white throat. So cute!
