We are being lulled into a false sense of security by unseasonal mild weather. It’s still Februaury and even though the seasons are changing, we aren’t out of winter just yet. These past days have been nothing short of beautiful, with wall-to-wall sunshine and daytime temps up to 19c. The garden is going crazy and I swear you can see things growing. It seems that every day something new has pushed through the ground, buds appearing on trees and shrubs, and flowers are bursting open. Snowdrops, primroses and daffodils are out and the tulips have already got leaves well above the soil. For now the coat has been put aside and working in the garden has been short-sleeves!
Hugo loves being outside and happily amuses himself in the garden whilst I’m clearing, weeding and pruning. However, all was quiet the other day which led me to believe that he was up to no good! Sure enough, a quiet and sneaky stroll found him crouched down on the side of the pond, nose under water and blowing bubbles, then pawing at the goldfish in a furtive attempt to catch them. Stupid dog…the fish just went deeper and well out of the reach of his paws.
Caught in the act
The peace and tranquillity was soon shattered by a huge splash as he fell in the pond! I will add that this isn’t the first time he’s done this. He’ll learn in time…perhaps!
“It wasn’t me”
