"You have a present Nanna, may I open it for you."
A book for me and homemade dog biscuits for Nella. I am always so overwhelmed by the kindness of fellow bloggers. Thank you Dan, I am so very grateful to you. I cannot wait until bedtime when I can have a quick read before sleeping.
Please note the slightly expanded muzzle........Nella took great delight in carrying her precious biscuit around the house, showing everyone en route. She loved her gift and is looking forward to bedtime ....when she will get another biscuit to eat, before sleeping.
Poppi and I put on our gardening clothes and set about planting the rest of the silver birch.
There is not doubt in my mind.......this little lady will be a gardener. She is a natural.
There is no job too messy. We work as a team...the connection between us grows.
Silver birch are not long lived. 70 years and they have reached maturity. Poppi will see them in old age. I do hope her memory will serve her well and she will remember planting them. I took her back to mummy later in the day. As I drove home I found myself smiling....... I had a lovely warm feeling. Treasured moments with a much treasured grandchild........
