We took a walk to the playground the other day, and what usually takes about 5 minutes took more like 40. We stopped at every flower and Milo took great interest in smelling them all, even those without any discernible scent. “Train a child early in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not stray from it.”
Milo actually toppled over smelling these pansies, his head is to heavy and they’re so close to the ground. About 90% of the time he refrains from picking them, which is pretty amazing.
This lovely creeper lost a few flowers to picking, but it shouldn’t be too noticeable to the homeowner.
Gerbera daisies appear to be winter hardy here, and these cheeky red ones got the Milo treatment.
