Terrier pet portrait

Things have moved on a little with my latest pet portrait (I know I haven't updated Brodie yet, I will very soon I promise). Snoop now has a collar, for some reason I am working around the nose, almost like a clock! I do develop little problem areas with some portraits and then I leave an area I feel a little frightened of until some other time, when it's completely out of order to work this way! Still, at some point Snoop will get a nose. It was a very hot and sticky weather at work today, too hot to be hacking bark from trees, still that is what we are paid for and I was quite glad to have a reason to sit quietly for a couple of hours when I got home. Today was also a little perilous, we had a report of someone being chased by a wild boar and that they had been spotted very close to the area where we were working today. Not good for the faint hearted!
Just a few pics from the garden, I have no idea what this plant is, this year is the first time it has flowered. I have some vague recollection it does only flower every so many years but that's about it, answers on a postcard please!
A pretty little lilac flower (again my lack of gardening knowledge is terrible)
And for anyone catching up with the latest news on Pickle, he has returned to his bossy little self, squeaking loudly and hanging from his cage for fresh veg so things are getting back to normal.
Again, I've lost my blog list, don't forget, if you were on it or would like to be on it, just let me (a reciprical link is appreciated)
Hope you are all enjoying the sunshine!

Snoop is looking superb, Karie! That collar looks so real.
I'm pretty sure the plant with the white flowers is Yucca.

Hi Kat, thanks for the info, I did think it maybe a yucca but didn't want to look silly as I was only vaguely guessing!!!

Your garden is looking great, Pickles is looking fantastic and can't wait to see the finished result of Snoop - you are an incredible (and patient) artist!
