I was late to the awards luncheon because I had to stop and take these photos of the wild tangle of tiny orange thunbergia winding around the bird of paradise plant. Please, Pasiano, don’t trim them away. I love the jungle look. These ladies help to create it.
Morrie Gets a Pedicure, and Other Burnt Orange Delights.
Yes, I was surprised that Morrie took so well to being pampered with an on-site bath, blow-dry, grooming and pedicure. (This enterprising young man has started a business where he comes to your house to groom and wash your dog. He seems to be popular as he was booked solid for a week. Fortunately, he had an appointment with a dog a block away from me so although I’m 5 km. out of town, he just worked me in after his other appointment.) Morrie was a bit rank. Hated to leave him with the house sitter in that condition. And yes, I was proud of the boy. And yes, he immediately went down and rolled in the dirt and the grass. A fella’s gotta have some pride, much as he seemed to enjoy the attention.
