The Payoff for Gardeners

0 Comments

I'm eating lunch right now.  (That's part of the reason there is no picture: you don't need to see me chewing.)  And this sandwich is my payoff for being attentive to my gardening.  It might seem to be just a leftover from dinner last night, but I know it includes the first harvest of homegrown spinach for the year.  Its fun to grow plants for their beauty, or the composition...

It's a Dog's Life...at Denver Botanic Gardens

(Given from Ollie's Perspective) Pretty much every day is the same for me. I wake up, do backyard squirrel patrol, wag my tail and try to look cute (not too hard for me to do) so my owner will take me on a walk, eat, sleep, and start it all over again the next day. I'm fine with the routine, but it would be nice to have a little excitement in...
