We finally had a break in the weather so we all (dogs and human) went outside. The dogs investigated all the nooks of the garden that had been unattended for days due to the weather. I image it was a cornucopia of smells and stories for them. Me, I pick up cabbage tree leaves. Begrudgingly I might add. There were a lot. The wind had scattered them around the garden. There are too many to count. I spend about half an hour pottering around collecting a handful, tying them together, adding them to a pile. The pile grew steadily. Eos thinks it is hilarious to steal one. She tends to do this a lot when I am gardening, steal things. Pots are fine. She tosses them in the air in a very sweet way. When she steals my weeding bucket it and up ends it is it less cute.
A lovely read Mel, thank you!
