I'm home for the summer, hanging about in my home town. My mom's garden is in full bloom...
And look who has a new home!
My mom cleared up this space in the backyard, and her boyfriend built Lilac this outdoor pen. Of course, I'm worried. Will it be too hot? Well, despite the heat, it's cooler out there than in the house (which is like an oven). Will she be lonely? What about bugs?
I also planted some seeds for her - arugala, cilantro, parsely, lavendar (okay, that one was more for me). She also has a whole bed of mixed lettuce, too!
She snubbed me all yesterday evening, going into her little hut whenever I came by to offer her salad or clover or toys. But this morning, I was putting laundry out and I saw her through the screen door, tossing her wicker ball up and down and generally being happy. When I came out to give her some salad and a frozen banana, she hopped into the corner and glared at me.
