Do you have daily rituals? Mom and I do. Every morning (unless Dad gets to it first) we go out and pick up the newspaper. This also gives Mom and I time to check out the garden and see what new things are growing. This morning we noticed that some of the gladioli that survived the mauriding nightly wildlife - are starting to send up shoots! We also have one lily of the valley (out of the ten we planted). My other daily ritual is a trip to the mail box - for some reason there are always such good smells around it. This morning I was exhausted by the 30 foot walk to the mailbox and had to lay down for a rest next to it. Protecting Mom from the tempestuous trolls is such hard work!!! Mom is still loving the azaleas we have growing - me I was keeping a close eye on that humungeous bee !! Mom says it is a what they call a honey bee here - I think it is more like a bee-asaurus - how does something that big and fat even get off the ground!! Okay Mom - quick take the photo I want AWAY from that thing! So what are your rituals?
