wind, wind and more wind...

they issued a red flag warning today...
because of the 30 mph winds and low humidity...
no burning nothing...

but it blew and blew...

I was out with my earmuffs on...

and we tried to go for walks...
but ended up back here behind the bushes...

do you dress your animals???
well, when the poor dog shivers, I dig out his duds...
he even has jammies with a trap door...

shadows...

leaves...

Daphne...

a little bitty baby lightening bug...
can you believe it?

he is wishing I would quit taking photos of him cuz he thinks he looks silly...
he asked me not to post this, but I couldn't resist...

now- need your help...
a friend moved and has things coming up in her new yard and would like to know what these are...
its got a yellow slipper flower like a snap dragon...

and this is a tree, maybe really big bush...

and this???
I haven't seen this in over 30 years and cannot remember what it is...
so if you could id these, it would be great!

have a great night!
cooler weather heading this way...

Love your new background, Tete. Be sure to tell Bebe he looks adorable in his little shirt! I've seen those yellow blossomed plants, not sure what they are though. And I was waiting to see the photo of you in your ear muffs!!

Tell that Donna she needs to go back a few posts to see you with the ear muffs on.

Loved all the pictures. Your pets are so cute...and patient!

I don't know what any of those flowers are but if those first ones have kind of "spiky" feeling stems I think they might just be a weed. Is that last one some form of coleus ? No...wait...I think it is some kind of ground cover. Dunno...

I hope you have a great dsy.it is cold here and I have a feeling I am going to be laying low. UGH- xo Diana

Hi Tete, I think the middle one is a red twig dogwood. I don't know what the other two are. Bebe looks adorable as does your kitty. I cannot believe how far along your gardens are already!
Have a good day! Beth

Hi Tete,
My daughter was just over to check on me & brought me my mail, seems the box had been piling up, I think it is was last Wednesday when I was last down to check on it~ Thank you so much for the Adorable Bunny Easter card, it sure has brought a smile to my face, not only the Sweet Bunny, but your kindness.... I also love the photos, I like seeing the outside, hope to be out & about soon, my fever is finally down, so if I can shake this dizziness & cough, I might feel better~
Stay warm & keep supplying the wonderful photos!
Cheryl

Hello again! The third unidentified plant is archangel, which is a type of lamium. Have a good evening, and hope you get a decent night's sleep tonight Tete!
Hugs, Beth
