constant gardener

It's summer time and the living is sweet! As some of you know, I love nothing better than to get out into the garden when the long days of summer arrive. I love visiting all the plants, smelling the flowers, and even getting my paws dirty by digging in the soil.

Before I do anything, I must do my stretches to make sure I'm not too stiff...


Once I'm limber, I head out into the garden to see what's new. Hey - these flowers are new! I should smell them. And hey - river rocks? Those weren't here last summer. Maybe I can paw them around the yard!...


Last Christmas my Aunt & Uncle gave my parents a gift certificate for some trees. They decided to put a flowering crabapple tree in the corner of the yard. They said something about privacy and beautiful pink blooms but I think the real reason they chose this tree was because it is the perfect shade tree for me. Yup. It's mine. I'm claiming it. You can find me taking a break in its shade with a bully stick...


I helped plant rhododendrons and hydrangeas down the side of the house...


All in a day's work. Now I sit back and enjoy the fruits of my labour! So proud...
