With Gabrielle to our north, and August in our rear view mirror, I spent the morning out at Sullivan's Island with the ever-perfect (Dog)Wood - her first morning beach walk since The Great Gallbladder Removal Event of early spring. She was thrilled - and did the ' happy whine' during the drive, which would be horribly annoying except that dog happiness is a contagious kind of happiness (whine and all). She's now smiling in her sleep and I need to do what I always need to do these days: pack, mow grass, edit, and panic. Buds are now beginning to cover the roses, there is new growth on some of the hydrangeas, and the gingers are blooming - and the fall vegetable garden is screaming 'plant me!'.
But Wood and I thought we'd share our morning walk with you.
