Colorful Friday!

Oh boy!   Well, even though Mom deserted me this morning for an overnight, I intend to have a GREAT Friday.   Mom has decorated my front porch with some colorful mums so at least I have a PRETTY spot to pout that she’s not here right?  See?  I’m looking on the BRIGHT side!    Here’s some pix………

Mom also took an updated photo of the most UNUSUAL display we have around our house of plants that she put in this past Spring.   Mom LOVES lantana…………she bought FOUR plants this Spring and planted them around the shrub by the garage………this is what they look like now (and no she didn’t even PLANT petunias there – they are just “pop-ups” from a couple of years ago when Mom had petunias there):

FOUR PLANTS? Looks like at least TEN!

FOUR PLANTS? Looks like at least TEN!

The trees are starting to change too!   The maples and dogwoods are always first………well, poplars maybe too – they turn yellow FAST.    I’ll bore you to tears with photos of THAT too one of these days.   In the meantime, I’m going to go find Dad so I can annoy him with my incessant wailing about missing Mom, taking me outside on the porch, giving me treats, BLAH BLAH BLAH.   Someone has to keep the old guy on his toes while Mom’s away right?

Hugs, Sammy the Pest

I miss you today Mom....Happy Birthday!

  5. Happy Birthday to your MOM, Sammy!! My pawrents and I hope she has a wonderful time celebrating today, but I’m sure she’ll think about you and your dad while she’s gone…. Mom used to have a petunia that came back every year for a long time, then she had the flowerbed “demulched” and lost it. 😦

    • Hi Sundae…Mom had fun but was happy to get back home…….Dad and I are glad she’s here so SHE can do the cooking – she’s MILES better than Dad is in that department – thankfully he knows how to do bacon though!

      Love, Sammy

  6. Your Mom did a fantastic job decorating the porch! And around the house! Maybe you need to send her by to do ours! But then, it would mostly be for the deer. They come by and eat nearly everything we plant. Even some plants that are supposed to be deer resistant.
    I hope you won’t be too lonely today, without your Mom. Enjoy your “with Dad time”,

  14. HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAM!
    Our mom loves lantana as well. She planted it in our front pots this year, and it is still going strong, along with some of last years flowers, which as you say, “popped up.” That happens just about every year. We loved the slide show. You are looking terrific, Sammy, and the flowers are so bright and beautiful. Be a good boy for your dad. Love and best wishes to Mom Pam.

    • Glad you liked the slideshow AND happy to meet another fan of lantana. Sure is a beautiful little flower and they just go NUTS through the season don’t they?! Dad says “they sure are hard-working!”.he’s right. Glad you think I look good – I have my 4 mo. checkup in November and Mom thinks MAYBE I have gained an ounce or two.

      Love and Hugs and thanks for the birthday wishe for Mom!
