Every Dog Has Her Day

Buffy is a Golden look-a-like. She's happy to celebrate National Dog Day with all other pets.


Buffy is a garden helper. Her idea of help and yours may not be the same.

  She picks up trash thrown out car windows along the road.

You need any pruning done? Buffy's your girl.

She helps brush up around the house. Mostly she just sheds.

Buffy sifting compost.

Why do dogs always want to drive?

Buffy has her own recliner, by the window where she can watch for intruders.

Rest after a long day of work.

Baby Sago Spreads Its Wings

While I was off getting through an hospitalization and then disposing of an organ I didn't really need because it was full of stones at another facility, my Baby Cycad unfurled its tiny fronds while I was not here to watch.




Today I could stand dying tomato plants no longer and started cutting them down in easy to handle pieces. That effort was short-lived but it was a start.































While I was away, a Brug cutting rooted and bloomed.

While I was waiting for the surgery, I came to grips with the fact that some things might die. I lost fewer than anticipated. He-Who-Mows managed to remember to turn on the vent fan and the mist system every morning.

It's wonderful to be home.
