My contribution for this week’s challenge…
Mid to late 2015 we completed a project
out the front of our house.
Our Miss Saigons were something which we were happy to
have as they complemented the Japanese garden bed
just to right of shot.
Little did we know that our two young dogs
were using this area as a speedway.
We think they would charge around the garage, at full speed,
not really looking where they were going,
through the gap shaded in blue.
What ever the case, one day we found one of our Miss Saigons
on its side, head separated and adjacent pots
cracked beyond repair.
The Leucadendron or Protea (surrounded by tiles)
was only planted late last year.
Replacing the pots was easy.
However, Miss Saigon is no longer on sale.
So this is this morning’s view.
No Miss Saigon and the old pots being used as a
barricade against the rampaging charges
of a Kelpie and Labrador.
It did not take them long to find a new path.
Instead of straight ahead as they round the garage…
I’m sure they have fashioned a new tunnel between these two plants.
