The burial

Today I went to the office but took a half day off in the afternoon for the burial of Tako.
At the sunny end of our garden we dug a hole, put some dried timothy grasses on the bottom as a bed for Tako.


The leaves around the hole are narcissus’s, I expect they’d bloom at the beginning of the new year.
And I hugged Tako for the last time and buried her here, with some food and chrysanthemum flowers. Her fur was still soft and clean.
