...my excitement was short-lived when I went to put my dogs outside and found that one or both had been very unwell. I realised earlier that I've never really introduced my dogs; Jack (left) and Millie (right), both Jack Russell x Mini Foxies, aged 11 and 9 respectively. Try keeping these two still for a photo!
So now we have special "upset tummy" food, pink goop for their tummies mixed in with the food, electrolyte solution, antibiotics for Jack (he appears unwell while Millie seems unfased), and some lotion for the rash on Milile's tummy (which she has had on and off since she was a puppy).
Not quite the relaxing start to the weekend I was looking for! Though the weather has really bought the flowers out.

The gorgeous fruit blossoms have now turned into little apricots.
The broad beans are finally appearing; if I'd known how big the plants were going to get, I wouldn't have planted quite so many!
My dwarf beans have sprouted; they're quite a bit bigger than I expected.
The corn plants have sprouted too...
And my favourite, the lavender that is in bloom all around my yard; the bees are loving it, but they don't appreciate being disturbed!
