hanging around the yard

 Looked up at the apricot tree a while ago, and did a double-take. What are those orange things??
 Yes indeed, there were apricots after all. Two weeks later they are all gone, naturally, but that's how long it takes me to blog these days.
It's been hot out the past few weeks. At last. I like a nice hot summer. 
Brought the whaddyacallit thing up from the cellar and put it back together for lounging on. Kind of like a hammock but it stays flatter. Natalie like to lie on top of it, but Sienne prefers underneath.
 They both like the chair, too.
And here's this joker, rolling in the dirt again.

The tree out front

I do not have a 'before' photo. I did not think I needed one.
 When I left for work Monday, I knew the very full & round fir tree in front of the house was going to get a trimming from my landlord. Keep it from rubbing against the house in the wind, and stop it from impeding cars from parking in front of it.
 Well, the low branches that might scratch cars have been dealt with.
And the mid-level branches reaching the house are gone, too.
Mission accomplished?
That's what Bandersnatch thinks.
