With the coming of spring, various plant species come into bloom. Replenish a current supply of plant for the Garden.

Present, late morning, in the garden planting seeds. AW for one please~ :3 [ 386 ]

Scorpius made a sound. A low rumbling grumbling growling sort of sound. A sound that said ‘I hate this’ without any actual words. Serene shot him a look. A half lidded slanted corner of the eye look. A look that said ‘Too bad, you're doing it anyways’ without any actual words. The walk to the garden far across from their quiet little edge of the Ruins carried on in the same manner as the pups - hardly even a semblance of pups anymore - led the way a few paces ahead of them, the twins idly chatting with each other about all sorts of nonsensical things that young ones discuss.

When they arrived at last the garden was a little worse for wear but was not the disaster Serene was expecting. Many of the perennial plants were beginning to bud and the ones that didn't come back had already been removed and the soil turned for new seeds. For that alone the unwanted Eternity was grateful. "Over here loves, let's pick out a nice place to plant these seeds."

She knelt down beside one of the empty rows and set down her satchel as the pups eagerly gathered around her. Sidious was quick to stick his face into the aromatic leather bag and even quicker to regret it as the mixture of strong scents sent the dark male stumbling backward with a snort. Serene stifled a chuckle as Senua laughed at her brother and Scorpius sighed, displeased with his son's behavior.

"Aw Sid, can’t handle a few sprigs of lavender?" Senua teased as she pawed at the soft earth and dug a small hole for her mother to drop seeds in. "Shut up, Sen. You know there's more stink in there than just that." Sidious snorted again as he found his feet and brushed past her roughly to start digging his own holes, which were entirely too big for the few tiny seeds they were meant for.

"Enough. Do as your mother says." Was all Scorpius had to growl out to get his offspring in line. Though the twins still jostled each other around as they competed against one another digging holes, the argument was over, and Serene could only smile cheerily as she dropped seeds into the various sized holes left in their wake.

In a place as large and populated as the Thistle Kingdom there were always tasks to be done in order to keep the pack running smoothly. Kaeli found herself unfit to carry on her usual activities due to the delicate state of her most recent wound. Because of this she chose to pay the gardens a visit and see if she could find a more endurable enterprise there.

Before reaching her destination she sensed the group that apparently shared her desire to work in the pack’s gardens. For a moment Kaeli hesitated, she was a creature who naturally sought solitude over the company of her own kind but to rise amongst the thorns she required to widen her social horizons. Resignation took over her and with a court smile printed upon her face she pushed forward toward the working family.

She took a second to take in the individuals that had gathered at the gardens. She knew Scorpius from sight alone, the rest were complete strangers to her. ”Morning. She heard herself say as she came forward, attempting to look less threatening despite her barbaric jewellery and imposing stature. Her eyes stopped on the younglings and then returned to the towering dark male. ”Hope you don’t mind another pair of helping hands.” After the exchange of greetings she would begin the easy yet tedious task of getting rid of the weeds that had started to grow under the shade of the useful plants.

The Blacksun warrior remained largely focused on the task at hand, although if a conversation was to take place it would certainly be carried on by the Jagermeister or his wife which name she did not know.

Thanks for responding~ sorry for the slow! Dx [ 338 ]

It wasn't long before the twins eventually settled a comfortable distance from each other and focused themselves on the task at hand, though they still kept trying to outdo each other, keeping count of how many holes they dug as their mother followed along behind them dropping seeds in the holes. Scorpius trailed a little further behind his family - still not pleased with having to help - and filled the holes back in before giving each little mound a sprinkle of water from a can.

They continued on for a good long while before the sound of footfall had Scorpius glance up suddenly from what he was doing. He couldn't help the bristle of his hackles, they were quite close to the eastern border after all, but the stranger was approaching from deeper within the Thistle Kingdom and though faint, she had the scent of the pack upon her. So instead of a growl a low deep rumbling sort of sound like distant thunder escaped him in retort to her salutation, red eyes assessing her for a moment before the Beast shifted his focus back to what he was doing.

"Oh, hello there." Serene looked up to greet the stranger with a little wave of her free hand. "I don't believe we've met. My name is Serene." She smiled cheerily before motioning toward the dark young male and then the light young femme. "This is Sidious and Senua." The youngsters looked up, each in time with the mention of their name. Sidious didn't seem at all interested in introductions and went right back to what he was doing while Senua at least smiled sweetly in salutation before doing the same.

"And no, please, the more the merrier." As the seasons changed there was always something to do and it seemed like work in the garden was never truly done. The earth toned femme settled down to pick weeds and the family slipped back into their cohesive rhythm of digging holes, planting seeds, and then filling and watering.

Gardening had never been a mayor interest in her life despite its many uses. Her knowledge of medical herbs was adequate at best, she had never taken to the liking of teas and infusions, and the herbs which she used to conceal her own scent were abundant in the wild already. No, if she were to try and take care of the garden’s plants or try to add more it would probably mean disaster. Because of this she was glad for the presence of others seemingly better versed in horticulture.

The off-white female was quick to offer her and her son’s names. With a court dip of her muzzle as acknowledgment the warrior offered her own. ”Kaeli Blacksun, a pleasure” No ranks were announced nor courtesies demanded, so Kaeli allowed herself to relax in the casual atmosphere as much as her solemn nature allowed her.

She proceeded to grasp the larger weeds as close to the ground as possible to pull them out roots and all. Many came out with large clumps of dirt hanging from the tangles of rootlets, these she shook to get rid of most of the clinging soil and then piled the greens for compost. By the end of her work she would be in dire need of a bath, luckily the river wasn’t far,.

She was done before those who arrived earlier, so she took a moment to rest her throbbing arm and make an attempt at small conversation. ” It hasn’t been long since I returned from the outpost... How has the pack been faring?” She didn’t refer to anyone in particular, although she guessed it would be the female who spoke again. News from the war and the green-eyed Revilis’ demise had made it to the Outpost within days, but many of the Kingdom’s endeavours had remained secret for those away from its heart and home.
