The only plants which remain in good health at the moment are those beneath the blossom tree. When I say in good health, I am referring specifically to sun damage and not to Beany damage because those not suffering from the former are obviously experiencing the latter.
She isn't doing so much damage by herself. As she's not yet managed to chill enough for me to leave the littles in with her, when let her out to play she does so alone.
She follows me about, keeping me in sight and, should I disappear round a corner, scampers after me with a slappity-slap of her little feet - she really is quite flat footed.
I'm absolutely determined that now the littles are 12 weeks, integration will be the aim of the game this week and each evening will involve steady progress toward unsupervised time together.
Stella and Clara hopped on my lap to be away from her during our most recent attempt and while I am pleased to be considered haven... I really just need Ivy to zip it and calm down.
She spends all day wanting to be with them (I know this from careful poop pattern observation) but when given the chance to actually be with them, boy does she come good on her promised to bring about their doom. Her particular focus on Stella is a little alarming.
Anyhoo. We will carry on steadily this week hopefully!
