|Coleus is always one of my best garden plants and I've been|
planting more and more of it each year. It's constant color
without blooms and easy to care for.
|I've never had fuscia last this long.|
It usually dies out in the summer heat.
|I plant caladium in this same pot every year|
and it always does well.
|There are probably 15 or more containers in this picture|
and none of them can be seen. I like that.
I gave Summer another bath today, outside this time, using a couple different medicated shampoos. She loves to play with the water, which makes it easier to leave the shampoo on her longer. She has a long way to go yet, but she looks better after each bath, and she's not quite so bony any more, so I'm confident that she's moving in the right direction. I'm feeding her twice a day and she's gobbling up the Satin Balls as well as all the dry food that I give her.
I didn't hike today because I felt like my legs and the rest of my body needed a break. None of the dogs were happy about that, but I made it up to Maya at least by taking her down to the brewery Wednesday evening. She's always a hit with the crowd when she hustles dog biscuits from the bartender. Clay was behind the bar this evening and he's an easy mark.
