And the blue-banded bees are back for the autumn... lots of them. The wind came up after the first two photos.... oops!
Floyd, the Wonder Dog has been teaching me some stuff lately. The other day I heard some really strange noises and I had no idea what they were. Strange noises. Finally I realised where the noise was coming from. Checked Mr Floyd and he must have been having a dream... his front legs were running and running... back legs were still. Funny little boy! That explains why his bed (foam rubber inside a sugar bag) is falling to bits!
He has his different barks and noises to tell me stuff. I'm still learning. He tells me he's stuck with a funny little bark. Then there's the "Alert!" bark, for frogs and toads. The "I'm farken freakin' out" bark with the leap inside when I open the door if it's something scary - snake usually. Then thisafternoon there was a strange new one that I have never heard before.
I went to the back door and had a good look around, I hadn't before. I'd opened the door and said hello to him, then went back to take the milk out of the car. Then I had the call of nature. He was making the noise when I was in the ensuite. I told him to hang on, I'd be there soon. He shushes for a while then. He's very patient with me!
I was just about to go out and see what he was making the noise about and the phone rang, just as I saw.... well, look for yourself...
FURTHER NOTE: I think I've worked it out. I now have to use the HTML screen to sort out formatting, it won't work in the Compose screen... danggit!
