The puzzle of the old dogs playing poker is still in progress. After Tarbaby chased Elizabeth onto the table and she skidded into the puzzle, causing about a fourth of it to slide off the table, it is a miracle that I did not give up then.

There is an exhibit called Arboreal Musings by Linda Beach in the Art and Design Gallery in George Hurst Building on the USM campus this month. She will give a lecture this weekend and discuss her design process and inspiration. What a privilege it is to see her beautiful work!

It has been an almost daily job watering my flowerbeds to keep the plants alive in this near 100-degree heat in September. Fall has teased us with a couple of crisp mornings. I am fascinated with this little plant called Fittonia argyroneura. The tag says it's from Peru. It was planted a year ago and lived through the winter covered in pine straw. It is producing tiny white flowers on these little stalks.
Tarbaby allowed Rahrah to snuggle up to his backside for a nap while Elizabeth kept a watch on birds and lizards out the window.
