The hyacinth bean vine is covering the sun hanging on the fence. At least he/she has some shade. I think it’s a she. Looks like a “she” to me.
My hyacinth bean vine leaves have been being chewed on by some unknown creature. I have no idea what it is, but I wish it would go snack somewhere else.
The pupsters and I are in a bit of a pickle. First Abi had to have her precious chew keys taken away, which she’s still not over. I bought a possible replacement. Nope. She doesn’t want a thing to do with it.
The vet told me to take the chew keys away because she got choked on a piece of plastic she gnawed off. We were afraid next time I might not be in the room. She’s mad now. She loves those keys and always has.
The other day she shredded a paper towel she got hold of and mixed it in her kibble dry dog food. Silly girl.
And now the canned prescription food that they’ve been eating since their last bout of pancreatitis over two years ago, which happens to be duck, is on back order EVERYWHERE.
I have to get it from the vet, but the vet can’t get it either. It’s Hill’s Prescription Diet. For some reason they can’t find the ingredients to manufacture it.
So now we’re going to have to try something different. And this scares me, because their tummies are so very delicate.
In other news, it’s starting to seem a more like fall every day. The pansies and mums are blooming. The pansies don’t like heat. They stop blooming when it gets hot at the end of spring. And then if you put them in the shade, they will start blooming again in the fall.
Aren’t the hyacinth bean vine blooms pretty. They are the prettiest shade of lavender. The petals look like velvet.
See the purple bean pods that are forming now? They will dry up and turn brown. And then the beans will easily come out. I’ve been saving these for years so I have a fresh supply for the next year.
As I write this, I’m watching the cardinal couple splash around in the bird bath. I wish I could have gotten a photo of them.
