Roses under a Dallas Sky

gnabonnand(Zone 8 Texas)September 21, 2009

It was a difficult night last night, with our Dallas Cowboys narrowly losing in the opening game at our new stadium. The game could easily have gone the other way, but it just wasn't to be last night. But I found some things today for which to be thankful.


No-name, thornless miniature rose:

Brilliant photos, Randy. Heritage again!!!!! looks so beautiful and that mini-rose is to die for!

Speaking of sports and dogs, LOL, on Sept 17-18 was the FCI World Agility Championships in Austria. The American, Marcus Topps with his border collie Juice, also from Texas, won the Silver Medal. Last year he won Gold. He was the only American able to get any placings this year. Our U.S. Agility Team basically got cremated by the Europeans this year except for Marcus and in our Team Division for Size Medium (we got silver). Border Collies usually are grouped in the Large Division, dogs like Shelties go in the Medium Division, dogs like Terriers and Miniature Poodles go in the Small Division. Well, at least Marcus did Texas proud!

I am very happy too for Bernadette O'Bay from the U.K-- she is such a kind lovely person. She got 5th place in the World Titles this year and that is brilliant. She should be very proud of her Sheltie Zen.

Nice pictures. The sunsets are quite colorful. You are fortunate to have had the camera handy when the opportunity presented itself to capture a beautiful skyscape.

Beautiful pics, Randy. I love your little garden angel and Heritage looks angelic too. The last photo looks like 2012 has arrived. Although, I don't buy into an "end of the world" scenario myself.
