Greetings and salutations everyone; it is I, Chess the purebred border collie, here to tell you all about my day in the garden. You may remember me from such captivating posts as “A Beautiful Day” and “One Things Follows Another”, among so many, many others.
Here I am in another characteristically horticultural pose. It wasn’t very cold today. Above freezing for sure. I’m kind of balanced on this pile of snow. When the guy I live with came up to me, I fell right over. I do that sometimes. (I got up again.)There’s so little going on here, we’d have to do stuff for at least a week to make up for it. I mean almost less than nothing. The guy I live with said you could make a post with less than nothing to say, so here goes.
I spy with my little eye.Don’t see anything? Right below the Cylindropuntia echinocarpa that’s leaning up against the window there. No? Let’s move in a whole lot closer.If you were a bunny and scary things were circling overhead, looking for someone just like you, you’d know where to hide.
And then, let’s see. Oh, the new seed frame, in the snow. Very fascinating. There are some pots of grass seed there. Rice grass, Oryzopsis hymenoides, or Achnatherum or whatever. Rice grass benefits from a cold treatment, and so there it is, cold. Since nothing is happening, and minutes tick by like hours, the guy I live with goes down and checks the baby cactus about three or four times a day. I’d say that doesn’t make them grow any faster, but he’d come right back with something like making a lot of crying and moaning sounds doesn’t make dinner time come any faster. Still, with my dinner time we are talking about something that’s actually important. The baby cactus are still growing without him having to look at them constantly.Here are some older ones, which are sort of more in focus, too.
So that’s it. A whole post, really about nothing. I’ll end this with another picture of me, to kind of give the post some zest, or something. All in all, a pretty good day. (Oh, and the picture of me is suitable for framing.)
Until next time, then.
