Joan and Oliver Admire her Organic Orchids

My mother has been adding coffee grounds and eggshells to her orchids, and this gorgeous bunch of blooms is obviously crying out, "We don't need chemical fertilizers." Oliver seems to enjoy them also, and loves spending time with my mom. She is becoming quite the dog person, since she adopted Jacque. He's inside taking a nap. Oliver wore him out wrestling in a game i call the Tumbleweed, because that is what they look like--a little ball rolling about in the wind. The two playful boys sure do enjoy each other's company. Oliver loves visiting mom when I am working in her area for the day.

Before I sign off, I'd like to mention that today's post at my All Things Dog Blog is about bringing peace between your dog and cat. If you've got both living in your house, I hope you'll stop in for a tip or two.
