The Ranch House

The Takach Ranch House was filled today.

Well there aside from Jill and George there is Wendy and ...

... Annie but today there was also ...

PJ climbing in a tree.

Then there was Jesse and that cute redhead Colton. Jesse was fretting about the sunglasses "tan lines" but they looked cool.

I really liked Colton's "spiked-do" and his sweet smile

Janelle and Jesse were also all smiles probably thinking about the great BBQ Chicken George had out on the grill.

Jill got home all smiles for her first ...

... grandson and first grand child. What a cutie!

When all the cooking started and the greetings ended I got my green thumb for photos of flowers going.

First I got this shot of the ice plant behind the house along with a bee propagating the pollen...

... and some new growth on the cactus.

I noticed this spider on a beautiful white beauty and then found out why he looked so healthy...

... it appears he had an ample supply of food in these aphids.

This plant obviously needs a shave.

The aroma from these petals was fantastic - oranges for sure.

Pretty pink flowers adorned this small tree a fruit of some kind.

Oleander is poisonous so I didn't eat these flowers.

I'm not sure what this bush was but the flowers reminded me of and orangish honeysuckle flower.

I had walked up the hill almost to table rock and stopped for a picture.

I really liked these delicate blue flowers in the golden glow of sunset.

Before going in to eat dinner (it was yummy) I got one last picture and called it a day.

No Scrabble but I did manage to get Jesse's laptop to print to George's wireless printer so I get 5 points bonus.
