Lily- Jan 2014
New Arrival- Hurricane Lily- black working cocker spaniel puppy- lively, energetic, adorable- possibly highly destructive. Been here 2 weeks now. She likes a paddle in the pool (day 1); likes to entwine herself in Carex testacea Prairie Fire-has developed a serpentine move amongst the clumps of 5 – she can actually tie knots in them. She is also fond of snapping off miscanthus stems- particularly the stately M. transmorrisonensis - focal point of the winter border by the back door- I push them all back into the soil, no one will know! Also a very fast digger. Ground rules for dogs not destroying the garden may be bent here- she is so much fun to watch- family loving this dilemma!
