Garden Helpers

This week I've been planting new flowers around our patio.
My favorite flowers are Star Gazer Lily's and Cone Flowers.
The Star Gazers were our wedding flowers (they haven't bloomed yet). 
Cone Flower

I also like any other flower that is purple.
While trying to plant some new flowers I ran into a problem.
The roots from our birch tree was in the way of where I wanted the flowers to go.
So I asked my doggies to help!

For that extra garden help call Ellie and Teddy Excavators!

Head over the Mrs 4s at Half-past kissin' time to see how everyone's else's week was!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

  3. I've been busy planting around here this week too. Your doggies are too cute! And so well-trained. Mine wiener dogs would look at me like I'd lost my mind if I encouraged them to dig since I'm always fussing at them for it.

    Happy Friday!

  7. Very nice! I can't wait to have a yard so that I can plant some flowers. I'm with you - there's no such thing as a bad purple flower!

    1. I love planting flowers. I find it very relaxing. Especially when the work is done and you have a beautiful flower garden to look at and enjoy.

  8. great idea putting the dogs to work and they probably enjoyed it. Now what will you say to them if they come back after the flowers are blooming and do more "work"? No surprise that you like purple flowers now that your blog is purplexing.

  9. When a person has a black thumb, like me, and touching a plant is to commit botanical homicide, one just has to enjoy the flower gardens of others.

  10. Gardening is very relaxing and there is something soothing about it. Plus it is always fun to get a little dirty.
