Hopes Planted

The skies teased us this weekend.


Dark clouds moved in, raising our hopes for rain. But a sprinkling was all Mother Nature had in store for us.


Days like these are perfect for curling up and napping, dreaming of the warm months ahead – and that’s exactly what the garden is doing.


If you look very closely, you’ll find the tiniest treasures under the blanket of grey and brown…





including these two sweet faces…



And this wonderful pair of dogs who have been cared for by a generous neighbor in a house left vacant after the owner died.


Just four of the 10 dogs – all treasures – who found their way to us in a single day.


“Hopes are planted in friendship’s garden where dreams blossom into priceless treasures.” ~ Author Unknown.

We’ll do our best to fulfill our treasures’ hopes – and keep very busy until the cold subsides and the rains (hopefully) arrive.
