In place of the usual random rejection letter or snarky review, this week, we have my installment of The Sixth Photo, which Dennis’s friend MyEye tagged me to do. In my case, the sixth item in the sixth folder was another folder, so I took the sixth picture from inside there. I’m sure it will come as no surprise to anyone that it’s a picture of a dog.
This is a scanned print of Tucker when he was about two years old, sitting in front of our house in New York, where the irises grew.
This isn’t our truck; it probably belongs to a roofer who did some work on the house for us not long after we bought it. The area with the irises would be off to the right in this picture.
The irises grew in a swampy area in front of the great room (where the large windows and high peak are). Right now they’d be buried in snow, but they’re probably still there, underneath the frozen ground, waiting for spring. When they bloom, though, there will be no vizsla there to sit in front of them.
Poor irises. I hope they aren’t too lonely.

You can still grow iris in California and do without the snow — vizslas are everywhere!
That’s a nice looking house. The wife and I have always liked the log cabin look. If you are missing the cold weather, it’s in the single digits here right now.
Awww no more Vizsla’s to pee on them either. What a cutie pie Tucker is.
Sweet looking dog, and gorgeous house. Looks like a writer’s house. And a loved dog.
I can’t believe that is Tucker! he looks gorgeous! And well the Iris 🙂
Your old home is really nice! Kind of rustic.. yet not 🙂
I can just imagine it with all the beautiful snow surrounding it.
Do you ever miss being there? 🙂
lovely place you had. and tucker is still a beaut!
oh! irises are my favorite flower! and of course…this post make me homesick for ny.
We have plenty of iris’s on our place – just for you James, but no Vizslas as handsome and proud as Tucker that’s for sure!
Irises are my all-time favorite flower. You wanna know something funny–I have an old photo of me in front of irises, sitting almost the same way Tucker is (well, a little more feminine, ha ha). This picture totally reminds me of that. Tucker is a lot cuter, though.
Your old house was gorgeous on the outside, btw.
Thanks for sharing your photos. I would miss the snow.
