.I spent the morning working on my plants on the deck, pulling out dead foliage, trimming, repotting, cutting off pieces to root for new plants. It was quite a task, but the pots look nicer. I have at least a couple dozen airplane or spider plants in water to root. Anyone one a couple?
After finishing that I decided to clean out the water tub I keep out for the deer. I dump it and change the water every few days to keep it fresh and free of mosquito larvae. I let Jazi go with me. She stays in the yard, and I don't have to worry about her other than that she doesn't usually want to come back in. We walked down to the well house, and while I the hoses hooked up (I bought some new ones and a splitter, and they needed to be unrolled, etc. The well house is 75-100 feet away from the house, just off the road.
Jaz followed me down and stayed in that area while I did the hose work. I walked back up the hill to the house to get something I'd left on the deck, and she was wandering around the area near the dear water. When I started back down the hill, I turned around to get the camera. About half way down I got this picture.
Do you see it? Look closely.
OK, I'll help you out.
Zoomed in a little so you could see the girl stretched out on a rock.
Literally. She loves the cool rocks.
She stayed right on that rock for about 30 minutes while I did my various tasks. In fact, as usual, she would budge when I was ready to come in the house. I had to go pick her up and carry her in! Litttle stinker. But at least I don't have to worry about her staying put.
I'm going to try the others at this, too. I think Joey and Sam will be fine, and I suspect Lola won't leave my side. She's still insecure about the big ol' scary world out there. Max is still my concern. I'll see how it goes, one at a time, and hopefully I can take them all when I am walking around the yard at some point. It would be nice to not have to worry about them taking off at every chance.
