in the garden

July 27, 2013


WOOFS everyone and happy summer Saturday morning!

Last night was very dramatic here in the Poitou: loud bangs, shutters rattling (along with my teeth) and big bolts of blue in the sky. I was, as one of our French friend says, 'very perturbated'.

But as you can see, I'm back blogging this morning. Or maybe I should call it 'dogging'? (KW: No, you definitely shouldn't.)

In addition to asking for more of me, many readers over the past few years have asked for pictures of the house where I live, but my human never got round to doing it.

(Honestly, if you want something doing, ask a doglet! There is a reason why we are considered reliable.)

So I thought I would start off with a picture of le petit jardin.

Last summer it looked like this:


A man came to knock down the building in the right hand corner and remove a flower bed.

When he had finished, he asked my human, 'Have you thought of having the wall repointed?'

She hadn't, mainly because she didn't know what 'repointing' meant. (Even I know that it means cleaning up the stones, chipping away the old cement and replacing it with a new sandy filling.)

I really enjoyed rolling around in the rubble and having more space to play in.

Unfortunately, as you can see from the top picture, the situation did not last.

I now have to share my space with some very tall flowers (although I'm sure they won't last) and all the clutter that humans bring.

Your garden looks woof-tastic! Exactly as I imagined it from reading your human's books and tres Frenchie (though I do hope there are actually plants planted in the ground now, and just not in pots).

Oh, Biff-licious, what a lovely courtyard jardin pour vous et your Human! And lovely that you are writing while your Human takes some time off, Biff!

Thanks Margaret. It's nice to be appreciated. Between you and me, some people think I've got more of flair for it than my human. Biff xx
