New Garden Project

Welp, I prodded the human into starting another garden project. The left side of our little backyard is weedy and nasty. She put in a new flower bed last year and planted it with plumbago and lavender, but that's just not enough. I wanted it all cleared out and a nicer flower bed made. So, she did the work whilst I supervised. She cleared stuff out of the way, dug up the worst of the weeds and grass, and laid down landscape fabric. She put down a bunch of stuff to hold it in place. Then she'll enlarge the small bed you see against the fence, creating a larger l-shaped bed where she can put some herbs and veggies. The rest of the area will be covered with pea gravel to help with drainage in that area. Here are pictures of what the area looked like before, and what it looks like now.

A River Runs Through It!

Welp, the big quake in Chile is certainly bad enough. We didn't need a tsunami advisory for the entire west coast of America! More locally though, it's been pouring down rain for hours and hours. Hence this little video:

Garden Fluff!

Welp, the human was out taking pictures in the garden. Our bulbs are coming up nicely (hyacinths, crocus), although we're still waiting on the tulips and muscari. Anyway, she took close ups of the flowers and then I insisted on MY close up...

Fluffy Love!

Why no Mexican Food?

Okay, I'm really cheesed off at the human tonight. She made a homemade tostada for the first time. On a small corn tortilla, she smeared on a thin layer of sour cream, added taco-seasoned ground beef, diced tomatoes and avocado, shredded lettuce and cheddar cheese and drizzled some Taco Bell mild sauce on top. It looked beautiful, so she took a picture to share with her friends. Then she ate it and obviously enjoyed it from the silly sounds she was making. Butt, do you think she shared even a nibble of it with her resident Fluff? I'm the love of her life, for pete's sake! Nope, no Mexican food for the dog. That's what she said. I can't believe she'd be so heartless, so cruel, so selfish and unfair. I protest vigorously, and plan my revenge....
