Greetings and salutations everyone; it is I, Chess the purebred border collie, here to bring you the latest news from our garden, which today isn’t much, but the blog must go on, as they say. (I don’t know who says, but probably someone does.) You may remember me from such weather-related posts as “A Windy Day” and “Another Windy Day”, among so many, many others.
Here I am in a characteristic pose. I do look pretty cute, don’t I? It was really windy today. You might have guessed, from the title of my post, but I just wanted to make sure. Really, really windy. Here are a few pictures of me on my morning walk. It was excellent, by the way, because we purebred border collies like the wind.
Pretty windy indeed. In fact, the guy I live with took a picture of what he calls “the neighborhood flag”, that is, a plastic bag caught in a tree.So there wasn’t much gardening done today. The guy I live with spent most of last night releasing mice caught in the Tin Cat, which made him think that the hole he found the other day was a decoy, to keep him from finding the real secret entrance.
I have a picture of Crocus korolkowii to show you; a new one opened today. This is ‘Amulet’. That’s all I have for today. There are other crocuses blooming, and the snowdrops, but it was so windy today that the guy I live with shampooed the carpet instead of doing any gardening. We had tracked a lot of stuff in, so that was probably a good idea.
Until next time, then.
