Ha roo, pups and cool cats, it's me - Zim. Yesterday was a gorgeous Spring day here at Ao4 HQs and Mom and I did a little gardening! I was a huge help to Mom, so I thought I'd have her take pictures so I could show you what I did. Ready? Let's go!
It started when Mom showed me this cool box we got in the mail!
Hey, cool! I smell... Airedales!
It was from Maggie and Mitch! Isn't that exciting!!! And look at what they sent!
WOWZERS! Pink Lily of the Valley!
Isn't that cool? They dug up some of their mom's pink Lily of the Valley and sent them to us! Oh... I should point out that I'm pretty sure they had their mom's permission to do that. Pretty sure. Anyroo, they packed them really well and they were still damp and healthy-looking. Mom said we needed to plant them right away and give them a nice drink of water!
I decided we should put them with our other Lily of the Valley; it's a nice, shady spot for them to hang out in!
I got Mom busy with her little shovel while I went on Guard Duty.
I've got the south-east flank covered!
Good thing I was there, too!
Alert! Something's coming!!!
Sure, it was just school kids this time, but it could have been something ELSE just as easily!
Mom got them all in and settled, and gave them a nice, easy drink from the hose. Maggie and Mitch had packed the little pips in sawdust (from their dad's workshop, I'll bet!), and I suggested we scatter that around them to help them feel at home.
Good luck, you guys!
As if I wasn't tired enough from that, we also put flowers in the mailbox planter. We put in some white Wave Petunias and some red Geraniums and this thing we've never planted before called a Mandevilla.
Here's a bloom on the Mandevilla.
In a short period of time, those ought to fill the planter up nicely!
Oh, don't feel bad for Oswald! We put a pot of deep red Geraniums on the porch that he can reach much, much easier.
Maggie and Mitch! Many thanks to you and your mom for the really special Lily of the Valley. We hope they'll be happy here; we'll do our best to help them thrive! We love having a new addition to our garden - Maggie and Mitch Lily of the Valley!
