SuperPig guinea pigsSuperPig guinea pigsSuperPig giant guinea pigs Gizmo and Spot Spot are Superpigs. They aren't called that because they have superpowers or even because they are super cute. In Peru, guinea pigs are a staple food and scientists in Lima have bred guinea pigs to be super-sized (cover your pet's ears) for eating. Don't worry: Gizmo and Spot Spot are safe from this fate. They are beloved members of a pet-loving family and even had their own photo shoot. Their cousins in Peru are probably super jealous!

The daisy-like flower is Grecian windflower (Anemone blanda) and it's one of my favorite spring bulbs. The green ground cover is Bigroot Geranium (Geranium macrorrhizum). Later in the summer, it will get taller and have pink flowers. Right now it's the perfect height for guinea pigs.
