Pffftt....

..that's how fast beauty can go by..if you're not paying attention.

Pffftt..

However, if you get a call from the hubby who is working in the garden and he's motioning to

 "grab the camera and come out here..like..quickly!"

Well then, you can get quite a show. 








This one is facing the other way..East..but stunning in it's own right..

I don't know if you can see it, but because we live in a valley, the sunsets and sunrises are even more spectacular..the color is reflected from the other side of the valley as seen here with the red mountains..

And last but not least, here are the pups with their new summer hair-do's..


{he's really not that sad..he just doesn't want to smile after having his teeth out..}


What a profile! Beautiful!

And speaking about beautiful..


"This is my best side, no??.."


So..happy Monday night and have a grand tomorrow!

Remember the old song, "Up On the Roof"??
"At night the stars put on a show for free".

Well, I for one think the clouds and the sun do a much better job and it's easier to see!

And you were able to catch it on camera!!

We had the very same sunset last night here in the foothills of the Cascades. My son called us out to see it. Absolutely spectacular.
Your pups look so cute. My Teddy was
rushed into the vet this morning with a raging ear infection. They had to put him under to work on him .
So I said clean the teeth while he is under. $700.plus later I got my precious baby home. Vet said the ear infection was not as bad as "Teddy" made it seem. LOL But his teeth are shiny white. These kids...

I can never decide whether I like sunsets or sunrises better. Beautiful photos.

(Oh phew! Yours was one of the many blogs I was unable to comment in earlier. Now I feel so much better. ;D When I want to talk, I want to talk, dang it!)

Pffft...yes, pfftttt all over the place. We miss so much. Some of the many things I've missed are because I was unwilling to let go of a lesser thing for the greater.

Keep enjoying those sunsets. How're the sunrises doing?

Oh, Braxton, I'm sorry about your teeth. Our poodle Jodi had that problem. Poor babies. I love you hair cut, Braxton. Oh, and Lulu too. Pictures are perfect. Good post, sweet friend.

I wouldn't want to smile after getting my teeth out either!
The photos were smashing. Did it storm that night? The photo with the cloud mass with the hole in the center is especially unusual.
I've never seen one like that.

You're sure a Proud Mama....
Lovely skies here in UT for sure. We're so far out west here, it's still light at 10:00! Glad Mr B has an eye for beauty too. Of course he does...he picked you:)

Pearl said...

Gorgeous sunsets for sure, it's like the sky is on fire. Your babies look amazing! Have a great week.

That is a beautiful show. Reminds me of the photos I took from the airplane on the way to Nepal. We don't get such colorful sunrises and sunsets until winter time rolls around and that's a long way off. :/ Your furbabies are precious! Have a great rest of the week. Tammy

We've been having the best sunsets too, but it's too derned hot to go take pictures...the dogs are adorable...I'm having a run on last minute groomings too, since it's been so hot, everyone wants them short...yayyyy...I love that!

I took the funniest picture of Scratchy today, I think I'll post it tomorrow, typical crazy terrier, what would we do without our heathens!

The sunset pictures are so pretty. I bet you were glad you went outside with your camera when your hubby called you.
