Greetings and salutations, everyone; yes, once again it is I, Mani the semi-small purebred border collie, filling in for the guy I live with, and here to bring you up to date on the latest news from our garden. You may remember me from such up-to-date posts as “The Hair Cut”, among so many, many others.
So anyway, I was going to post yesterday, but I was much too tired after a good day at Day Care. I really like Day Care. That’s why I go. I admit I’m pretty awesome. And you know what? Yesterday, a year ago, was my first day here. I’ve been here for a whole year, and now one day. I guess it’s been okay.
It snowed again the other day, and the guy I live with was all put out, because now we have crocuses, and some of them got a little soggy. The cages are to protect them against bunnies. Bunnies eat the crocus flowers, and the leaves. And the guy I live with gets hopping mad. (Get it? Hopping mad.)
At least I’ve been able to go on full-length walks in the last week or so. I can walk all the way down the creek path, turn around, and then go back.
In one place, in the creek, there’s always muddy water, like some creature was swimming away from us as we got closer, and one time the guy I live with said he saw ripples in the water. He said it’s probably a muskrat, but I haven’t seen it yet.
Every time I go on my walk, now, I hope to be able to see the muskrat, and maybe I will. Or maybe the guy I live with will bring the camera and take a picture of the part of the creek that used to have a muskrat, but doesn’t any more because it swam away. I’d really like to see it, though.
That’s pretty much it, for today. It’s a bit too chilly to be doing any gardening, according to the guy I live with, who of course has to have everything just so.
Until next time, then.
