Looks to me like Little Monkey has had one too many already!
Vodka Day LM 2
I can’t believe I missed National Vodka Day this year (it was the 4th). I had a lot going on, but still that’s no excuse.
Vodka Day LM 3
And I must praise Little Monkey here. Sometimes I think I take her good behaviour for granted. She was snoozing on her mat, so I thought it was a good opportunity to snap a Vodka shot. However, as I arranged the bottles and glass near her, she raised herself up on her front legs to see what was going on.
I gently pushed her back down, but as I stepped back to take a shot, she half sat up. I settled her down again and got my photo. Then I trotted into the kitchen with her to give her a treat.
It was only afterwards that I thought, “Hey, she did all that for me, with no treats. Pretty good for a Mutt!”
I bought a new lavender bush, since my old one suddenly died. This one seems to be a different variety; chunky and not as refined. Hopefully its ruggedness will help it do better.
Lucky Lavender 2
post script: I have written a few posts on lavender and hesitated to do another, but I liked the photo I’d managed to capture in the sunlight, so thought, “Why not?” The little haiku came after, but I’m quite chuffed with it. I doubt anyone will notice, except perhaps Scooj, who counts the syllables!
Also, I’d chosen the title Lucky Lavender and then realised this is my 77th haiku. 7 is my lucky number. Serendipitous or what?
