Today Penny and I went to a local park to mooch around, and we met a friend there whom Penny loves. She (the human) and I were discussing 'earthing', so all three of us lay on the grass in the lovely evening sunshine in the hope of improving our emotional welfare. How nice!
I hope I didn't overdo it by taking Penny for this first major outing after her recent illness. She was out in our backyard munching on grass this evening. Back to the vet tomorrow, I think.
But an interesting thing happened while we were in the park. We met the man who is one of the designers of the great signage that I love so much, the signage that explains the fascinating water harvesting that goes on under this park.
And with the Monster El Nino looming over our summer, water harvesting is going to be on everyone's mind soon. Unfortunately. How terrific that Banyule Council has put all this investment into the future.
Here he is with our friend, holding his own dog, Chas. (Chas the Chihuaha - you have to love that name!)
If you'd like to see more of his work, have a look at this.
