It’s finally time to plant the flowers here in Minnesota! There’s nothing like getting those paws down into the fresh soil each spring! Sadly, our favorite garden store is not pet friendly, so I had to send my mom to get my flowers. The only instructions I had were must be able to be in full sun, and must be lots of fun bright colors.
I think my mom picked out some real nice flowers for me to put in our planters. I got all my supplies out back so I could get to work.
One of the tough parts of the job is getting the flowers out of their plastic containers so I can put them on my big pots. I manage, but it is time consuming.
When I get them in my planter, I have to gently push them down with my paws so they stay where I put them.
Finally, I need my shovel to cover them with fresh dirt. Mom says dirt is like food for plants as it is full of the nutrients plants need to grow nicely.
To make my flowers really feel at home, I give them a nice big drink with my watering can. Flowers need plenty of water, but not too much or they won’t be happy either.
Finally my first planter is finished! They never look all that great the first few days. I think they are busy settling in, but with a bit of water and sunshine, they will look great in no time! Have you planted your flowers yet?
I also want to join in the blog hop to celebrate the life of our dear friend Whitley who recently crossed the Rainbow Bridge. She was one of the best dressed dogs we have ever known. Thank you to my friend Dory for hosting this blog hop.
Sometimes I do dress up, but hats are my thing, so I’m posting this photo in a fashionable hat for Whitley! Run free my friend.
