Returning to Panama, I found our front garden completed but for the laying of the sod. It looks marvellous -such an improvement over the weeds and mud - and compliments are flowing in. Many thanks to Matt and crew for such a great job! We have coconut palms, lemon grass, bougainvillea, torch ginger, star jasmine, lilies and petria. Some I have no idea of, and their blooms will be a surprise. We added a small slate patio and spend 'Happy Hour" there watching for whales with our drinks. By the way, the whales returned for their annual visit while I was away, and although the stay some distance from shore right now, we see them spout, and rise for air. I am waiting to see one breach! Inside, our dining set is looking perfect for the space, and we have added a leather-like swivel recliner for the occasional nap.
Mitzi and Cagney managed well without me! She has grown a little and weighs 5 whole lbs. Her antics have not slowed a jot, and she continues with her manic moments. Her 3rd set of immunizations were last week and the now usual fight for the oral medication took place. It was a lark! Cagney is turning more silver in colour (as he is a Silver Norwegian, it is about time!) and looking magnificent. Neither are too fond of the latest thunderstorms which pass overhead and can be deafening. Marvellous nature but a bit intimidating!
