Morning sunshine out my window EDM #18


Good Morning!

Today I chose to do the View out my Window EDM challenge #18. The morning sun was shining and it is still cool out. I have the curtains open and the breeze blowing through the house. the picture I drew today shows our rescued broccoli plant front and center, the railing of the porch and the assored greens beyond, including our ginormous rambling rose bush!


Okay, when I say rescued broccoli plant here's the story...


My dog Winston the Westie LOVES broccoli. When ever he hears the freezer door open he runs to the kitchen the see if it is BROCCOLI. He will do any number of tricks for one little frozen chunk of that veggie. Now, we didn't even realize that he would bother the broccoli plants in the pots in the yard. The merest thought of that never crosed our minds. So, one morning I walk outside and I see that something has been nibbling on the plant. I think, oh well, bunnies... and go on about my business. Later in the day I walk past the plant and more of it is gone, and I see Winston laying in the grass near the pot. I go take a seat in the shade and watch. No, he wasn't guarding the plant from maurading bunnies, he was keeping it all to himself! I watched him get up chomp another leaf and lay back down! Arrrgh! dratted dog! I swoop in and take the chomped on broccoli pot and all up to the porch and put it on a table out of doggy teeth reach and it has be happily recovering and now sending up a lovely broccoli head.


I hope you all have a lovely morning! Cheers, SB

Great story....such a funny dog. This reminds me of my wonderful golden retriever, Jack who dug my carrots right out of the garden to eat them. Silly critters!
I wish I loved broccoli that much - at least I'd be snacking on something a little more healthy. Love the whimsical style of your sketch too - goes great with the story behind it. Thanks for the welcome to EDM!
