Betty asked if grass such as in my lawn is common here, and I answered no. But when it rains like it has lately, we have a number of varieties of grass that are plentiful. There is a lot of it around on various hillsides and in valleys. Much of it it knee high or close to that. Some it is really pretty, some have heads that wave in the breezes. Pretty stuff!
Here are a few pictures of some grasses growing on my property. I haven't looked up the names. I don' wanna.
And while I was taking those pictures, I came to the back yard where the dogs were having a stretch and found this......
Jazi was enjoying the warm sun on her belly and taking a little snooze! Later in the day we went to the vet for a checkup. She is fine. She has a little swelling in a node, but no symptoms that are of concern, so I'll just watch that. She weighs in a bit heavier than I thought. A whole, great big whopping ten (10) pounds! I really thought she was between 8 and 9. Her appetite is good, but not voracious like the boys. The vet staff were charmed with her, and she is very friendly with every person she has met so far. She just charms everyone wherever we go!
