Last year Rufus was really good about showing up at least once during each guest’s stay. This year, he seems to need a new watch because today, for the 4th time since Xmas, I waved off departing guests with an empty yard and a few minutes later looked out the window to this:
Bad Wallaby! You’re late.
Somehow I don’t think he cares….
Bonus photo from last week when some guests left some carrots. He ate one without stopping. Then took a bite out of each of the others so there was no doubting they belonged to him.
And he went and sat in the garden waiting to be worshiped.
Maybe when the clocks go back tonight he’ll have better timing 😉
I have a viburnum (Viburnum plicatum var. tomentosum) in the middle of my back yard. The first few years it was there, it grew, then we had a drought and for the next few years it actually got smaller each year until I thought I had lost it. Then suddenly it started growing. And Flowering. When it flowers it looks like it has snowed on just one plant. It is gorgeous, stunning and everyone would comment on it. This was it in October 2012.
But just two years later it is a very different plant. I haven’t pruned it, but the lovely spreading shape has changed dramatically.
It starts out covered with flowers, but every day there seem to be fewer on display.
I just don’t understand what has happened.
It’s a complete mystery.
