Sunset magic in Darebin Parklands

We headed down to our favorite place, Darebin Parklands, this evening, to see how the plants have responded to the welcome rains we've had over the last week.

First a few stretches to loosen the muscles:



Then a bit of ball chasing in the magic of the sunset:





Next, a surprise! A lovely new seat where the humans could rest after the strenuous business of standing around while Penny chased a ball:



And a swim in the clay-streaked water of the creek for Penny:

Slavenka, soon you'll have lovely spring to enjoy! Not long now.

Schwang, she does love swimming, but anything that involves chasing balls on land or in the water gives her joy.

Twink, you've got sharp eyes, because it's a washed-out photo and Penny is in the distance.

That looks like a very relaxing and fun spot to us, Penny!

Love ya lots

I can only have 1 yolk because the yolk is higher in phosphorus than the whites are and we kidney dogs need to be very, very cautious of phosphorus, Penny!
Your park looks so serene and peaceful!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Oh, thanks for the info about the phosphorus in egg yolks, Maggie and Mitch. I thought I'd read somewhere that we have to be careful of eggs.

And, yes, it's a really special place.

Honey, I'd better be honest. It isn't me! It's Penny's "other" human. I was the one taking the photo.
