A Golden Green Thumb

Spring has sprung at my house, and I couldn’t be happier. My human mommy and I have spent our ninth year together in the garden . . . weeding, trimming, digging, planting, and enjoying the fruits of our labor.

I’ve been Mommy’s Golden green thumb in the garden since I was just a tiny puppy. Before we moved to New Orleans, we had a really big garden. It took days and days and days and days to get it into shape.

Our garden is smaller now–just a few pots and a little groundcover and mulching. In many ways, it’s a much simpler task . . .

. . . and in other ways, it’s more of a challenge. But I’ve been working closely with Tallulah to teach her the ropes and I think she has a bright and sunny future as a Golden gardening assistant.

What’s better than one Golden in the garden? Two Goldens in the garden! Tallulah and I wish you a very happy spring, filled with warm breezes and vibrant blooms. And we wish our human mommy a lifetime of Golden green thumbs in her spring garden. Happy spring!

    No gardens here until May. We still have some snow, and more might be coming on the weekend. Enjoy your Golden garden.

  2. Gizmo and I have been building an herb garden in our new, tiny “yard”. Everything is in pots and the scents are wonderful.. We do have a lovely ghost pepper plant to add a bit of spice.

    That’s how you make things grow! Mom doesn’t have a green thumb anywhere on or near her. I think she could kill a fake tree. XOXO – Bacon

    We are waiting for the rain to stop before we plant stuff.
    You two look so sweet helping your mom.
    Happy Spring.

  6. Good girls for being so helpful and keeping Mom on task I’m sure. Kloe is “fascinated” with gardening and is always eager to help improve our handiwork with her own personal redux! We may need your help MHL to help Kloe understand that once the pretty flowers are in the ground they should stay there! 🙃. Happy spring to all!

    We have some heirloom bulbs from our old house that I will be planting on Good Friday. They are from my father-in-law’s house and he ALWAYS planted his garden on Good Friday. I’m hoping they bloom next fall. #SpiderLilies

  10. I think you girls are doing a lovely job in your mini-garden. Way to go. Your mom isn’t bad, either…. My mom is forcing some tulip bulbs in the living room, since there is still a LOT of snow outside. Happy spring!

    Love and licks,

  11. Happy Spring gurls!!!!! Maybe you could teach Ma some gardening ….. our plants only live out of spite…☺

    You two look like the perfect garden assistants. All of our gardening is limited to starting seeds indoors right now, but we know we’ll be out working in it soon! It wouldn’t be the same without some canine assistance. 🙂
