It's "I Like Thursday" hosted by LeeAnna at Not Afraid of Color! Today we fill the internet with positive energy and gratitude.
Scout and I like doggie playdates. Scout went to visit her boyfriend Mack this week. She loves Mack, isn't he cute?
But as it turns out Scout-The-Hussy loves Roger (Mack's Dad) even more. In fact, she adores all men. We were all scattered around the front porch and watched in fascination--and glee--as Scout learned a new trick.
Scout learned fairly quickly that if Mack approaches Roger for a nice pet, all Scout had to do to divert Mack was bark once (they weren't even real barks). Mack would then abandon Roger to guard the porch and then...Scout would have Roger all to herself😉
She did this over and over again, relishing in her new power and testing various barks (the most hilarious was a quiet 'woof' which still got the reaction she wanted). It was a great night!
I like that it has been raining. I can't really work in the garden right now as my husband is having some sciatica issues and needs me. Hopefully he will be better by the weekend when the humidity dissipates.
Most of time these past weeks has been in the garden. Critters continue to visit, including a return of the fox and now an opossum.
Opossums are actually helpful in the garden. They eat ticks and mice and don't carry rabies.
My quest to make the garden more elder-friendly continues. With some assistance from Linda, I now planted heather as a base foundation plant.
Unfortunately my last tea rose now shows signs of Rose Rosette disease and will be removed from this bed this fall. I'll move my pretty butterfly bush this fall when it's cooler to the hydrangea bed and just put annuals in the bed next year. It's a fun process to redo flower beds and I'm enjoying it!
That's all I have this week. Have to check on hubby again and awaiting for a call back from the doctor this morning.
Have a safe and happy week!
