Take Time to Smell the Flowers

Wishing all of you a Happy Memorial Day Weekend! I will be busier than a bee helping mom plant flowers this weekend. This was our first trip to Millhome Nursery yesterday... mom makes at least two or three trips for flowers. Whew, I'll need a nap come Tuesday!... or after all our hard work I will take time to smell the flowers... and eat them. Hee Hee. Mom's gets a bit mad at me when I do that. She does not stay mad too long though. She says I'm too cute to stay mad at.

Hey Frankie, does your mom let you help her to dig? That might be fun. We don't help mom with our garden, 'coz she won't let us dig. We just watch her working and nap in the sunshine. We did that on our long weekend, last weekend. Mom put pictures of us napping on our blog.

Frankie: this is Valentin and Pogo, we thing you look pretty with those flowers.

Have a wonderful Memorial weekend, hope you get sunshine and a chance to dig.

Heidi, Valentin, Pogo, Stanley (I'm the new cart boy) and Daisy Mae
