This is my Turks Cap. Yep. I cut her back and she is still blooming. I do not think it has every lasted this long. The hummers love it and during the summer, I can look off the top porch to see it's pretty flowers and visitors having a sip.
I sure will be glad when Maggie's nose looks like this again. Last week, she got into a nest of some kind of stinging critters. Her head and muzzle swelled up and I gave her some Benadryl and it came back down to normal size, but her nose kept getting worse and she was digging like crazy with her back paw. It then began to bleed. I called the vet and was told to mix some baking soda with warm water and use a compress and hold it on her nose. She was very good about letting me do this and the scabs came off and I proceed to put neosporin on the raw nose as instructed. She just would not leave it along with both the front and back paws so Puppy went to the pet store and now the poor darling is a cone head. However, this morning it was looking better. Also, I was under dosing the dog with the Benadryl. You can give a puddy dog 1mg per pound that they weigh. Therefore she can have 3 benadryl twice a day.
Since Maggie's encounter with bugs that STING, I have once again incorporated walking her on the leasch.
The Kitty Justice is to wish for the luxury of a full service gas station, flowers to brighten the day and a dog with a well nose.
