I’ve shown you a few photos of our back patio. You’ll notice that it’s basically a wasteland, especially on the sunniest end, where puppy Silas pulled up all the shrubs.
I thought I would fix this by putting out some potted plants.
Silas was very interested in this potting process. He sniffed of the dirt, and stuck his head down in the big pots. Interested, but not destructive.
I put out my mint and my lavender (potted herbs were on sale at the supermarket last week, and we already had two big empty terra cotta pots). Silas played in the water hose spray. We enjoyed the sunshine.
The next time I let Silas out, I thought, “Hmm. It’s been a few minutes, I should make sure he’s okay with the plants.” It’s a good thing I checked, because that was the exact moment that he lifted the lavender bodily, roots and all, out of the pot. I repotted it again, and I think it will be okay.
Maybe I should just learn to love the wasteland look.
