Greetings and salutations, everyone; yes, once again it is I, Mani the moderately-sized purebred border collie, filling in for the guy I live with, and here to bring you the latest news from our garden, after a very frightening evening yesterday. You may remember me from such posts as “The Upended Breakfast”, among so many, many others.
Last night, there were tiny skeletons and witches at my front door, and even though I was warned that this might happen, I guess I had to see it for myself. And it was true. And really scary.
Later in the evening, after all the trick-or-treaters had gone, I felt I needed to lick the guy I live with’s hand, since I was so upset, though of course it wasn’t really his fault that all of this happened. I know these pictures aren’t in focus much, or even at all, but I was moving fast.
I imagine you might like to see some pictures that are actually in focus now. (Mostly in focus, anyway.) Here’s a picture of the Crocus speciosus growing in the ‘Seafoam’ artemisia. Same crocuses I showed a couple of days ago.
That’s about all I have for today. I just wanted to assure everyone that I was still here after an evening of terror and surprise. There were even firecrackers, for crying out loud. But I’m okay, and things are back to normal.
Until next time, then.
