As you know I live in Minnesnowta where July is the only month on record without a snowfall! Yikes! Sometimes I have to wonder why we moved here! Normally we plant our pretty flowers by mid-May but this year since we had snow until May 3rd, things were a bit delayed. It has been exceptionally cold, so mom wanted to wait to get our flowers and then she went off to Blogpaws so we had to put it off for yet another week. Finally, she went out and got flowers so all that was left was for me to plant them in our pots for her.
We have several larger pots on our deck, so I figured the best plan of attack would be to load those plants into the wheelbarrow and take them around back that way.
I use my old pool that has some leaks to put my dirt mixture in so it doesn’t make a big mess on the deck. I can mix it up nicely in there and then easily scoop it into my pots.
After I get the dirt, the plants and some more dirt in the pot I need to get my paws in there and pack it down a bit to keep the plants in place.
Yep, the first one is done! I think it looks pretty and it kind of matches my gardening outfit and tools. Now I just have 3 more to plant on the deck and 2 out front.
Once you finish planting, don’t forget to stop and take a moment to sniff your hard work!
