Less daylight all the time, cold, rain, snow, more rain, more snow . . .So this is the best way to spend the days now . . .
For ten days we had the joy and pleasure to take care of Pero, our friends’ dog. We were a little concerned of how our cat Jacky would react. He was a little suspicious at first. To our delight they quickly became friends. I guess it was because Pero had a cat in his life for his first, about, 5-6 years and Jacky had our Canelo in his life for his first 1,7 years. I think Jacky liked Pero because he also is a Spanish Water Dog like our Canelo was. It was lovely to see them every morning, nose to nose, say good morning. Pero, welcome back, anytime !
Time flies. Almost mid September already. It has been raining quite a lot. No night frost yet but, I think I will move the flowers in pots, the dahlias and begonias, indoors for the winter any day now. Today the last bud of the Strawberry Candy day lily is in bloom. Yesterday while I was shooting the last photos of the summer of the dahlias and begonias our cat kept me company from the top of the fence post.
Happy, happy birthday dear Jacky !
The trailer is loaded with stuff to be taken to the waste & recycling station, looks like Jacky wants to come too.
Today I planted a tomato, a red pepper and a basil plant into the new wooden frame. It’s small, but there’s still room for some more herbs. The one tomato is just for fun to get a few tomatoes. I had way too many last year. Soon I will plant some more red pepper plants and also some oregano plants. Look how happy Jacky is when I gave him a tour in the wheelbarrow.The chive is in bloom. My longtime favorite flower to photograph.
