Dogs in the garden...

You would automatically think this is a blog about dogs tearing apart my garden when in fact it is not. My two garden dogs just enjoy the time they have outside with me while I dig, plant, water and look at my garden. When I listed them as garden helpers I meant it. Noel "the white one" always lets me know when there are bee's around and has made me aware of some not so wonderful yellow jacket nests. She goes after them and never seems to be affected by their sting. Don't worry she is smart enough to back down to a nest of them. She always lets me know where the sunny spots are. She will lay down in the sunniest spot in our yard.





Fiona aka princess dog "the brindle one" loves to walk through the daylily beds and smell the flowers. Believe it or not, she is so gentle when she does this and I haven't lost a bud or scape yet.

Your dogs are so sweet! We had visitors in the garden today and poor Calie had to stay locked in the house. I understand that some people are afraid of large dogs. I wish I could get it into her head that if she was slow and calm, they would be ok with her but instead she wants to jump in their lap (even if they're standing) and give them lots of loving.

Hi Janice, kocked on your garden gate this morning. Met your dogs, said hello and gave them a pat. The daylilli seedlings look good. I always collect the seeds just may be to get a nice surprise! I will be back when the daylilis bloom!
