I have a green paw!

It's that time of year again...GARDENING!!!!

Mom said it was time to get our herb garden going again, so we drove to Home Depot to do some SHOPPING!

I picked out this nice pot of MINT so we can grow it to make my favorite breath buster biscuits!


We got our loot home and planted before it rained...

The new plants are in the middle...Greek oregano, cilantro, flat leaf parsley, 2 basils and rosemary. The perennials are on each end of the herb garden...chives on the left and sage on the right. I have been working hard and peeing on that sage plant ALL YEAR. Just know that in case you come over and Mom is making Chicken Saltimboca.


The mint went into its own pot.

I keep nibbling at it and mashing my face into it! MMMMMM!




Mom LOVES this snowball bush. She says it looks like a big Hydrangia plant! She planted it when I was a tiny puppy....so it's FOUR years old too!

ACK! We know...the lawn needs to be MOWED, but it was NINTEY FOUR DEGREES (NO JOKE!) here today and it's also rained for like the last 9958439393828289 days straight...so we'll get to it asap!


Ugh...here's what's left of our lilacs....

They were really pretty last week and they smelled up the whole yard! Now they're turning brown and looking pathetic.


OOOHHH...forgot to tell you about the other new addition to the backyard this year!

MY OWN FIRE HYDRANT!!!! Mom and Dad are trying to stop the "polka dotted lawn" syndrome, and got me this thinking I'll pee ONLY on it. HAHAHAHAAAAAA!!!! It's pretty cool, but I still have my usual yard map to leave my pee mails.


NOW hopefully mom won't kill it all!!!


Happy Hump Day everyone!

Momma said you looked a little turdly at Home Depot, whatever that means.

I plan on watering all the herbs once Momma gets around to planting them. I know all your herbs are going to grow big and tall thanks to you. Your peeps are lucky to have you!

I can't believe you were at Home Depot, too and we didn't see you! Love your fire hydrant...hu-mom needs to get one for Mack.
Keep up the special fertilizer on those special plants and let us know how good they taste.

Drools and licks,
