    when my son got thor for me....he stated the dog's only purpose was to watch over me 24/7....so he trained thor to do just that....do you have any concept of what its like to be shadowed by a 100 lb doberman all the damned time?

    Pretty pics!
    The weeping willow tree...maybe it needs a shot of Vitamin B1?

    I'll take some pics of my blooming goodies in the front and back yard tomorrow. I love seeing people's yards and greenery.

    Awww! I love Thor's face! And yes. I know what it feels like. My girl does that. I call her my shadow. Where I am, she is. Always looking at me. Same expression. Don't you just love it? :clap2:

    Looks like a willow to me. But, I am no expert so no telling.
    Ex bought me a few trees last summer. One is a birch. I thought for sure it died during the winter (it was half off too. Poor thing was sick). But, I saw buds on it last month and I was thrilled. It looks really good now. He went to the swap meet and bought me two honeysuckles, a 15 ft tall olive tree and a fir tree all for 50 bucks.

    Oh, I could go bonkers in a nursery. I want everything!
    I did all the digging, planting, pruning, watering. I still do, too. When I can. Good days? I am out in the yard happily doing all that needs done. Heck, I even put the fence up by myself. Complete with concrete posts. The gate was a pain in the ass, but I got it done. On bad days, I look out the window wistfully.

    I just planted corn and scallions in the garden day before yesterday. I wanted more flowers too, but I didn't have enough money and ex was at work otherwise he would have bought them for me. That's my job. Taking care of the yard and the house. I do both. When able.
