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!

  7. oh this is sooo “Springy” and darling!! Love it!!

  8. Beautiful flowers, enjoy your day.

    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. 🙂

  14. Just a quick note to say we’ve missed you and hope all is well.

    • Greetings! We are all well. It’s been a busy spring and summer, but I’m giving my blogging assistant/human mommy strict orders to get back into the blogging groove in October. No treats for her if she doesn’t obey. 😉

  15. Hello Miss Harper Lee and Tallulah! We love your garden. Looks like some digging is in order? Our human Mama Jo is back into blogging and she has been looking out for you. She wants to use Harper Lee for a puppy name. Hope that is ok and hope all is OK with you guys and your human mom. Signed, The Sundogs.

    • We’re so thrilled to hear from you. My blogging assistant/mommy has been quite remiss in tending to my blog lately. We’ve been pretty busy with my work as a therapy dog–visiting nursing homes, hospitals, universities, and even weekly stops at our local airport–so I’m happy to take the blame for that absence. 😉 We would be so very thrilled for you to use Harper Lee as one of your puppy names! It’s an honor to have a special connection to The Sundogs. ❤

  16. What a wonderful way to spend your ninth year together. Your mom must be happy that she has a smaller garden now instead of that big one. Plus she has help from the new doggie garden helpers. Thanks for sharing the beautiful photos. Have a wonderful day.
