Cavaliers Greet the New Year!

Our darling Cavaliers are a ray of sunshine on a gray and gloomy morning in Savannah. There is much to recommend living in Coastal Georgia, unless you have a string of cold and gloomy days. But my little spaniels remind me that there is much joy to be found indoors on such days.

“May we sit here?”

You may want to get caught up on laundry, but they beg to play ball. So you stop and toss the ball and revel in the simple joy of watching the satisfaction of a job retrieving well done.

I just wrote a new article for my gardening column in a local publication, recommending looking for color in your Winter garden. I explored our Island on a gray chill day, and I did find a few colorful spots. I would like to see more. Especially during the camellia season!

Even downtown on some of the pretty streets in Savannah, there are spots of color that brighten a gloomy day.

While I write this post, I am looking out my study window to a hanging basket of bright yellow pansies with a background of spikey foxtail ferns. Just the sight to brighten a day! Here is wishing for many sunny days in 2019, and happiness even on the gray days!

Fetching is so tiring, let’s take a nap!

    The cmellias and snapdragons are so colourful, they make it look very springlike. Your dogs are really cute, I don’t think I would get any work done with them around me!

    I’m surprised by the number of winter flowers we share. Snapdragons and pansies are widely used as landscaping flowers here because they do so well in our winters, and the camellias can be seen all around town.

    I must say — I’ve never seen two dogs that could stir impulses toward dog-napping in me, but that pair could do it!
