Well thanks to your good wishes and a bit of suit wearing and sleathy CV embelishment, I appear to have been successful in my attempts to officially stalk the local garden guru. Hurrah, I am now his right hand woman, all legit and everything, I have another job. The good wishes, certainly helped boost my confidence, thanks! The news of this great acheivement (Peedie is a big fan of the garden guru and his pockets of doggie treats) and then on his walk, seeing the man emerging from a local bin today (look closely at the photo above) has confused so Peedie so, that he stood in a puddle for a while today taking it all in.
Although truth be told, we don't often see men emerging from bins, nor dogs actively standing in puddles. Especially this dog, as he is not a fan of water or wetness. An unusual day all round.
I think the shock got to him, he's gone for a lie down on the sofa. Looks comfy doesn't he?
Its a hard life for a dog having just moved house.
In other great news - the courtyard gardening has begun, a few plants bought (Viburnum davidii, Chamomile, Ajuga repens (tricolor), some peedie violas and a rather lovely looking bird table have cunning found their way into my car and to my new home. Every plant must indeed earn its space here. I told myself, having flown down to Inverness for some womble training last week, that I have to keep up mitigating my carbon footprint by growing more plants. And given that I killed the last lot in the wind, I have to buy some, hey ho no rest for the wicked.
Its, not that I want to buy plants, honest, no no no, I'm trying to balance all that carbon I'm using. Unfortunately that means when I go to Inverness again next week, I'll have to buy more plants. Oh dear what a shame eh, but a girls carbon footprint must be redressed somehow or other. The training isn't optional, so another plane ride means I'll just have to buy some plants for my new little patch, won't I??
Can't have my carbon footprint all out of kilter, now can I.........
