Yes, the silly season has well and truly arrived here at Bustle & Sew HQ! Although in all fairness, it has to be said that life with two Newfies is generally silly for quite a lot of the time or, as my mum used to say, “I had to laugh or I would’ve cried”.
The sun has finally made an appearance over the last couple of days, and I’ve been able to get out in the garden a little – and admire those flowers that haven’t been totally squashed by the rain! My clematis is looking rather nice (thanks to Dan for reinforcing my wobbly obelisk – which had become that way as Ben liked to push and rub against it)….
And the collection of pots at the top of the steps is also looking very pretty. Pots work well for me as it’s harder for the Newfies to squash my plants with their big clumsy paws ….
And while I was wandering around taking photos, the ever-effervescent Miss Daisy came out to pose (she’s becoming rather vain) ….
But can you see – there’s something odd about her left ear! Inspired by the sunshine, as well as pottering in my garden, I decided to touch up some of my paintwork. Daisy does so love to be involved in everything that’s happening, so had clearly taken it upon herself to inspect my handiwork ….
Ben couldn’t quite believe what he was seeing and had to circle right around her to check out her new body art!
Look at that face! Look at that body! She is obviously VERY pleased with herself and doesn’t care one bit about all the black fur clinging to my newly painted wall!
Ben is distancing himself from the whole sorry affair! Yes – the silly season has definitely arrived here in Oakhill – goodness knows what the terrible twosome will get up to next! (PS yes, that is Newfie-proof fencing around my borders! Ben loves to push against the wire and test for weak points. Last time he broke through I lost six alliums, two lilies and half a bush of mint as he trampled across them!).
