second wood carved lawn sculpture is up, before the rain. still sinking in, but im liking it and i get a kick out of this info on the plant. "Since the bamboo lasts through all seasons, it is frequently associated with pine and plum as the "Three Winter Friends."The bamboo is considered a gentleman with perfect virtues. It combines upright integrity with accommodating flexibility; it has the perfect balance of grace and strength, or the Yin and the Yang".

this old dude has come full circle...again. once a bird dog kept in a pen, to a free running mountain dog, back to his original owner (in better living quarters) and now back to boone, and the mountain air. tex is home whereever he is, and is a loving, beautiful creature who i am very happy to have back with me.


this xmas we had the opportunity to all be together as a family unit and take some long overdue family pics. my sister and her hubby did a great job putting on the weekend event and a lot of fun was had. loved meeting the new additions and getting closer to those i am removed from by distance. for me, the reason for the season:)
