This was the view from our garden a week or so ago. We’d had a few inches of snow, but it had quickly melted. Luckily, it lingered on the hills around us for a few days and the bipeds took me for a long walk to find the snow.
In the front garden, the bipeds were pleased to see signs that the Spring is on the way. The snowdrops are almost in bloom. There are patches of green leaves where the daffodils and tulips will bloom. I don’t find flowers particularly interesting. While the bipeds admire the flowers, I have a good sniff around at the interesting smells that visitors to the garden have left behind.
There’s a wonderful feature to our front garden that I haven’t told you about yet. I was amazed when I discovered that it was a surprise to the bipeds! I had, of course, noticed it immediately. I was having my breakfast one morning a couple of weeks after moving in, when I heard them talking about it and realised it had taken them a while to notice.
The male biped was looking out of the window and said, “Do you have to?”
The female biped asked him what he was talking about and he explained that another dog had just left a message on one of the posts at the end of the drive.
The female biped said, “It seems to be an important messaging point.”
They were then trying to work out why that post is important. It isn’t difficult to figure out, but bipeds don’t understand this sort of thing. There’s a lamppost on one corner of the road that stores messages and there’s a telegraph pole at the other end of the road. Our house is about halfway between them, making the post on our wall an obvious place to leave a message!
I find it really convenient. I can sniff the latest messages on my way out for a walk and on my way back in I have a quick sniff for any updates. I’m always up to date with the latest news in the village.
See you again soon!
