Hi everybody! It's me, Ragnar. Yesterday morning was too hot to go on one of our normal morning walks. When you wear a thick fur coat like Mags and I do, humidity over 90% and no breeze means a much shorter walk! We hung in there for just over 2 miles and that was enough. Mom thought I might need a bit more exercise, so she and I went out back to play afterwards.
She brought a couple different toys out and would throw them and expect me to chase after them.
|"You want me to what?!?"|
She started running after the toys herself, so I followed her and all, but frankly - I think the heat was getting to her. It seemed kind of crazy to me.
I proposed we just hang out for a while back there and maybe do some exploring instead of running around. I even offered to do some posing!
|"How 'bout a profile shot, Mom?"|
She seemed OK with that idea, so we went with it.
|"Did you get the Blanket Flowers and Salvia in the shot?!?"|
I really like those flowers. So do bees. Did you know bees are "NoNoRagnarNoNo
"s? It's true. Interesting.
We checked on the Friendship Garden:
|"Hey, look! The neighbors are out!"|
Mags and I both love staring at the neighbors. For some reason, Mom doesn't think it's a good idea.
Here I am in front of our new-this-year Succulent Garden:
Mom and Dad worked really hard on that garden and are quite happy with how it looks!
I surprised Mom with one last pose on one of the northern tiers before we headed inside! She wasn't expecting me to jump up there. Ha! I felt pretty regal up there, so I thought I'd make a formal statement:
|"I am Ragnar Jimmysson! AKA Polargold's Einherjar!"|
Maggie was watching out the window and gave me extra points for leaping up onto the retaining wall!
So ... yesterday was too hot for a long walk, and too hot to play "chase the toy", but not to hot to have a little fun with my mom!
Thanks for taking us on a tour around your garden, Ragnar. You sure pose nicely.ReplyDelete
