Eddy sports a new fashion; the off-the-shoulder look for dogs
Here in the Eastern Free State the weather has warmed up considerably. It's a little early for spring, but I'm not complaining. Even though the winter forces me to tidy my cupboards and do other indoorsy stuff, I look forward to this season when I can get back into the garden.
Yes, it's becoming warm enough for the dogs to sleep without their coats on. Yesterday I walked out onto the patio and chuckled to myself. Eddy is probably already feeling warmer because she had one arm out of her coat. A new doggie fashion? I asked her, and quickly grabbed my camera to get a few snaps.
I'm thrilled that my garden has remained quite alive which is not normal in our area in the winter. However, we had so much rain last summer and my garden, which is primarily indigenous, is three years old (even though I started it way back in 2002) and has also had constant kind and loving care from me and two gardeners over this period.
Being mostly indigenous, the garden has remained pretty, albeit a little brown around the edges!
