I ventured off to the backyard garden. The hibiscus is the size of a lunch plate. So beautiful! We've watered some parts of the garden. The veggies are about done. No new flowers on the tomato plants...
The drought is going to have an impact on our Central and Southeastern Ontario crops. We shall see. Lesser quality, smaller fruits, and less quantity, they predict.
In the meantime, there is much controversy around Nestlé Waters Canada's recently expired contract for taking water from Aberfoyle for the purpose of bottled water. I hope changes are made. They aren't the only company.

Back to my story...Annabelle followed me, but Daisy heard her. Then Dorah followed, too.I wish we could take more rescue cats, but Daisy (7 lbs.) & Dorah (15 lbs. - litter mates) still boss Annabelle (10 lbs.) around. They followed me on a forest walk, and Daisy was really pissed off. She seems profoundly jealous. Mind you, this is what Buster would do to her.

|Annie figured out she could go around them,|
but Daisy roared out from the grassy knoll
and gave her hell.
|It was soon over as Annie declared submission.|
|"That'll show you!"|
Daisy and I continued on by ourselves, and wandered around the forest. Later, you'd never know what was up!
Of course, Annabelle was curious...
