The dog used to like to defecate on loose stones, in tall grass or other vegetation, and of course on beautifully manicured lawns. These days he seems to just use the middle of the sidewalk. Today he almost deposited on the shoes of a gentleman who was trying to get past us to cross the road. Luckily the guy was understanding.
Our battered old magnolia tree is covered in blooms and starting to break out leaves. Apparently it needed water.
