Today was a beautiful day in Maryland. The sun is shining, the grass is green, and everything is blooming. The temperature was nearly 70 degrees. So when I came home, I took George on a nice walk and brought along my macro lens. The first thing I saw were these beautiful violets. After taking several pictures, I continued down the macadam farm driveway and made a left onto a gravel farm road that turns into grass and found another bunch of violets that were even more purple than the first.
George stayed with me and practiced his heel. He will walk right alongside me and then I'll let him go off. While I take my pictures, he waits patiently for me by the fence. He really is a good little dog.
After we got home and ate dinner, I opened up my photos and was cropping them in photoshop and George was outside playing by himself in the yard. Our dog has all sorts of doggie toys, but what does he go for? In consecutive manner, he drug a big old boot around the yard. When he got tired of that, it was the old plastic milk jug that he's been playing with for months.
And when he was done mauling the jug, he gently pulled a stick out of his stick teepee that my husband built for him. Then he pranced around with that stick in his mouth for a bit, finally settling down with it between his paws. I could have taken pictures, but sometimes I think I just have so many George pictures, it's crazy.
Hope you enjoy these violets today.
