Another day of cloudless skies and bright sunshine. The street dog outside the pizza parlor is asleep against a wall. Lost in a world of his own. From time to time his muzzle twitches in sun warmed contentment.
I feel like telling him to enjoy it while he can. Tonight a storm is due to rush down from the high mountains bringing with it heavy snow and freezing temperatures. Winters last fling ? The old tree peonies in the garden are just starting to bud. This morning I'll cover them with gauze in the hope that some of them survive.
