Marisa's arrangement on Wednesday. This peachy pink rose is new. It doesn't open which is a strike against it for me, but the color is gorgeous. It has a nice shape, so even if it doesn't open, it looks yielding as though it might!
These moody colors are accented with a new burgundy colored anemone, and checkered frittalaria.
News on our Rascal Max: We've been having bonding sessions with ZuZu. These are fascinating to watch. The first few days, poor Max, not realizing he'd been neutered, used a rather 'cave man' approach to courting, for which ZuZu had no patience. She kept moving away. So a few days later, he tried kissing her first, and although his kisses are very rough, she began to warm to him a bit and even endured his 'mounting' tactics. He's determined to bite her gently when he mounts and we try to discourage that. ZuZu seems to know how to school him though and it will probably be a few weeks until they're bonded. In the meantime, his 'free time' in the back is hilarious: he climbs on everything, races around ZuZu's house trying to get in, races through the back of the shop and gives me a hard time when I try to put him back home for nap time. I give him some hay which he eats and then he falls asleep just like a baby. We are charmed by his young spirit, but we're looking forward to his life with ZuZu, in hopes that he'll calm down a bit and start feeling like he's really home!
