Dogs and Birds


In the yard.  January in California.

The dog barked.  “Doh!” he said, excited.  He pointed in the direction of the barking.  “Ruff, ruff, ruff,” he barked to himself.  He was happy.

Birds chirped.  “Ba!  Ba!” he said, turning and pointing to the tree with the birds in it.

Rainbow Tomato Plant

In the garden, knowledge and plants will grow.  Mostly hands-off, this Rainbow tomato’s grown since Vanessa Shaushkin gave me the seedling earlier this summer.  It’s six feet tall.  Should I top it?  Never grown one this big.  It’s a good omen for John John.
