Me and Molly love our backyard. It is big and filled with some awesome plants and fruits. This time is year, especially, the apricot tree is beginning to drop its luscious orbs of sweetness. I can sit under the tree for HOURS noshing on apricots. I WOULD, too, if the Mommys had not put up a fence to keep us out. Now I only get to explore back there if Mommy is picking apricots off the tree. She shares with me -but it is not the same thing AT ALL.
We also have strawberries and when they are ripe I can stand on my tippy toes and snag a berry or two. That is heaven in a mouthful, I tell you.
We go out when Mommy is watering - early in the morning so it does not evaporate too much. We wander to our favorite spots and also tell Mommy if someplace is being NEGLECTED a little. Last week we alerted the HUMANS to the presence of a WOODPECKER! It was a beautiful bird - blue and gray and almost half the size of Molly!!! But they do a lot of damage to houses and since we just endured a WEEK of painters, we did NOT want any house damage.

We have a little pool (pictured above) and we use it a lot when the weather turns hot. Let me clarify here - I USED IT a lot. Molly does not like getting her paws wet overmuch. Me? I love love love it. I can spend all day standing in the pool cooling off. It sits under the apple tree and later in the summer I am not above reaching overhead and plucking a sweet apple from the low hanging branches.
It really is a marvelous place. I think I'll stop here and wander out there RIGHT NOW.
