Moving an Established Fig Tree. Delayed post from Nov 2017
Out of Indianapolis came a dog story on the evening news last night. A "lost" dog for 5 years was returned to its owner thanks to a microchip. Nobody knows where the dog was for all that time. Of course, the owner was thrilled. Sorry about your loss, Kathy.
Another neat painting, Daniel.
Daniel, I didn't see it in these. It was the color of the bird known as an Indigo Bunting. Could be because I found it under some leaves so the sun hadn't bleached it. Last fall I found a bunch of bright orange ones that looked like upside down carrots. But they were growing up together like a bunch of bananas. I broke one open and they were hollow inside.
Those tiny plants are beautiful.
Spud, thank you. He's a good dog. Furry love.
Here's another image from the public domain website. This is a 1904 image of mosses and other tiny plants, under magnification.
Daniel, I enjoy your stories about Charlie.
Oops, the second link should have been here. Lactarius indigo.
Kathy, is this your blue mushroom? Indigo cap. More, here. Pretty color.
Kathy, I know when I've gone through grief, and after cancer surgery, my dog Charlie made a big difference to me. More than people did.
Today I took Charlie for a walk. At 17, he doesn't actually walk on his walks. I put him into a wagon and pull him around the neighborhood. It frosted last night, so we only went for 6 blocks this time.
When I started giving Charlie an anti-inflammatory pill last year, I mixed it into canned dog food, which is a treat for him. I would ask him, "Can you say please?" and after a while he barked out of frustration, then I praised him and gave it to him. Gradually, he started barking immediately when I asked him to say please. Now, when it's 8am or 6 pm, he just starts barking at me, without waiting for me to go into the kitchen.
Lately, when I eat popcorn, he barks at me until I give him some. One bite for me, one for him. One for me, one for him. If I lag behind, he barks.
Spud, Randy, I think it's winter!
Mushrooms today. Same Alice-In-Wonderland Amanita muscari, as before. The roots of that fir tree is colonized with their mycelium. I moved some caps to another fir tree to see if, in a few years, some come up there too.
Our pets have a lot to teach us, & training us is a must!
Sad news Kathy.
Kathy, how are you doing? May comfort and peace come from memories of your shared life.
Your description of your Boston Terrier's behavior confirms its feelings of loss and grief.
