However, a weekend later, as the country froze over and I ventured it out there again (just before leaving for an outdoors ice-skating day - more about that soon), what I found was a much less pretty sight... the daisy had gone into what can only be described as Incredible Hulk Mode.
I'm not sure she's coming back, I think we've lost her forever. I should have seen it coming but hey, I'm obviously not very good at this domesticity lark... la margarita is dead, long live la margarita!! (whoopsie daisy, indeed!)
Note: "Crónica de una muerte anunciada" or "Chronicle of a Death Foretold" as in Gabriel García Márquez's novella.
