So, I have been doing the rest very early in the day when it is only in the 80's (almost get a sweater, really)
I have to deal in the front with kitty Panzón, who is sure his potty room is getting bigger by me clearing the flower bed, he sniffs around and leaves a sample... and in the back I have to convince Scruffie that not every stick I toss is for her to bring back or turn into 50 pieces. Oi!
Lately I just get tired and sweaty mainly by adding dirt to holes that Scruffie keeps making bigger each time. The neighbors have a big new male dog, and the summer lovers have this ardent passion to meet in person. Is it still "in person" when they are dogs? Should it be dogson? doggedly? Well, lets say that they want a face to face visit and it has to be through the fence, so they are digging in both directions. Imagine my delight.
Ugh! A visit to the vet is overdue :o(
Well, anyway, look at the treasure I found hidden in the philodendron:
Such a beauty! I think I'm going to paint it. Feel free to do the same if it inspires you! I was so sad to have to remove my other philodendron from the front yard, but it had grown out completely out of the flower bed, leaving only the roots in there and it looked terrible. I still don't know what to put in that flowerbed, but most likely will be a big pottery with something in it, not on the ground.
And tonight we had a night visitor, Mr Sapo. A big fat toad that comes for dinner by the front door:
There's at least 4 of them, but this one is the biggest. Great bug killer, talk about an organic solution :oD
Tomorrow I will post pictures of the portrait I'm painting. I'm liking her so far :o)
