Discovery Day

Today we went to a friend's summer home. It just so happens that her dog, Clancy, is my dog, Sophie's boy friend. They love each other.....have since day one! He is 10 years old and she is 3. Guess she prefers older men!

It was a great day to spend near a lake and Sophie took complete advantage of the water. She was in and out all day. Even Clancy put his feet in the water...... he normally hates it.

We also discovered a couple of 'wild' flower/plants.......Trillium and Lady Slippers. They were growing all through the wooded areas on the property.

We would love to have these in our garden but to reproduce their natural habitat is difficult. And besides it's not an environmentally sound thing to do because they becoming quite scarce. And I think it is against the law here. But it was so great to see them scattered everywhere. Enjoy.
