It’s International Earth Day today. (Actually every day should be Earth Day since at present there’s no alternative to putting our paws on this wonderful planet. So we should care for it all the time.)
Yesterday our servant invited two of us: me, Napoleon, and Cheekie (Carlotta was still sleeping it off in the master bedroom) to join him in the celebration of Earth Day in his orto (allotment).
He spent most of the time planting onions of which there are two main varieties, the Tropea from Calabria which gives off a pretty strong sniff and the Lucchese variety which is rather sweeter.
I thought the scarecrow looked pathetic so I decided to take over its job in scaring off the crows myself by sitting down in its shade.
Later Cheekie (well-named little hussy but she’s only two years old) wanted to sit near me.
We started to play together, got into a little fight in which I, of course, came out on top!
After a little rest we came back home up the little track to our servant’s house.
There were some pretty flowers on the way including borage:
But the best ones are at our house!
It was nice to have a rest after all that activity and wait to be fed and watered.
PS Are you collecting the Fruvees at Penny Market? (They are all about growing and eating lots of fruit and veg).
If so have you any swops? We’re still missing numbers 5,19, 26,27,28,36, 37, 46, and 55. Thanks!
