Greetings and salutations, everyone; yes, once again it is I, Mani the tiny purebred border collie, filling in for the guy I live with, and here to bring you a short, and, as I think you’ll agree, entirely irresistible post. You may remember me from such equally irresistible posts as “Bunnies And Flies”, among so many, many others.
Here I am in a characteristic, yet pathetic, pose. The cone comes off tomorrow. We can both hardly wait. Not much of anything has been happening here, as I said before, partly because we enjoy napping, and partly because the guy I live with says it wouldn’t be fair of him to work in the garden while I have to stay inside.
In a way, though, some gardening is happening, because these came in the mail today.I know they look like something you might boil for a poultice to ward off evil spirits, but in fact these are roots of Eremurus olgae. This species is native to Uzbekistan and yes, it’s true that you can get other eremurus from regular bulb companies, but by now you should know that that sort of thing doesn’t happen here as much as it used to.
The guy I live with ordered these from a bulb company in France.
Until next time, then.
