Wiggle - Day 696

Yesterday, despite the rainy start to the day, we went up to the Rhododendron Gardens at Bowood. It was actually rather nice, only seeing a few other people and wandering around, taking in all the colours in peace and quiet.

"Which way shall we go?"










Sofy found a bench to sit on:













Wiggle admired the colours while Sofy showed less interest.....










Pretty flowers:



































A busy Bee:













The carpet of Bluebells:











This morning the rain had cleared away and after a walk across the fields, it was a day of mostly sleeping for Wiggle and Sofy. They had playtime with the dogwalker, judging by the tennis balls out in the garden when I got home. After his dinner, Wiggle wanted to go back out and play but as he'd only just eaten, I didn't let him.

Instead, he lay by the patio doors, grumbling and huffing.....

Such a lovely place to walk & I like how you show your sensitive, beauty-loving side, Wiggle, by your admiration of the flora.

Grumbling & huffing by the doors because you want to play some more - I do that, too (with some whining & paw-stamping thrown in). Perhaps it's time to rummage about in the bathroom wastebin, BOL.
Love, your best girl,

that garden is beautiful. what a place.
Sofy is very particular about where to sit (very funny).
A very nice blue carpet.
I need to leave my job and get my a dogwalker job...
Very nice day, even with that rain.
