So today we were walking and it was finally light enough to snap a couple of pics. FLOWERS!!! They've been up for a couple weeks, but it's always dark when I go out. Today it was gorgeous.

Shadow (looking the wrong way) in front of a few wee flowers. Oh and my hollyhocks are coming up already too!

Halo's picture with the flowers didn't take (dead battery of course), so she gets an inside shot.

I'm also putting in a picture of my neighbour's lawn. Is anybody else getting the issue of chaffer beatles in the lawn and the birds are ripping up the lawns to eat the beatles? It's awful here in parts of Vancouver. The birds are destroying the lawns completely. Fortunately they're not eating mine yet, but the moles are working on my lawn.

The girls would love a bit of snow really, but apparently not this year. Shadow is still having some medical issues. We're waiting on some new blood work, she's lost 7 lbs in the last seven months. Vet wants to make sure it's not liver related.

Well I gotta tell you these bugs are awful!! They showed up a couple years ago and are destroying lawns. Sadly it didn't freeze enough this winter to kill any it appears.

Any yes we're enjoying bugs and flowers in the middle of the Winter Olympics. Go figure.

Shadow's blood work should hopefully come back on Monday. I'm not too worried, she's getting old and I really believe this is all just part of it you know. It's so hard to watch them get old. But she's still very happy and has great joyful moments full of energy and all is good.
