Best day ever.
There's been some rain overnight. The lyrical, gentle sort that can't decide whether it wants to be mist or drizzle.The garden has enjoyed it. The grass holding onto its lush greenness before Mays summer sun parches it brown.
The PONs are out of the door and into the distant recesses of the garden as the first light paints the clouds. They don't so much run as skip in pursuit of a collar dove that has the audacity to walk across their lawn. Sophie shrieks.
It's good to see the dogs like this. Lost in their own world of unbridled adventure. Excitement worth sniffing on every tree stump or flowering shrub. Angus thinks of talking to Bob about the strategic implications of the VP's criticisms of Turkey and Germany but why ruin a good day ? We wave at the school bus as it drives by. The tikes elder sister stares at the screen on her phone and refuses to acknowledge the presence of her two annoying brothers.
What a gift to have companions who are willing to share natures greatest secret - today is simply the best day ever.
