We’ve had some nice rain the past few days, as well as sunshine. The trees look wonderful with all the leaves and shade. This is a picture of a mature Redbud tree, although it is branched much more than a typical Redbud in the forest. Perhaps it was pruned that way when young, but in either case I love the way it looks! We have several large Redbud trees around the property, but this one looks better than most.
We are still training with the lab pup… I’m throwing fake ducks into the pond now and he charges in after them. He swims very strong and powerfully now, I’m amazed at his strength and eagerness. All I have to say is “Want to get some ducks?!” and he jumps around like crazy. I keep the sessions short- no more than 3-5 retrieves at a time. Soon I’ll break out the decoys, and help him learn not to retrieve them!
