Earth Day

Today the USA is celebrating Earth Day. Fudge and the rest of the pack want to tell you about their participation in the celebration.
Hello Fellow Earth Creatures. When Mom explained to us that this was Earth Day, we all wanted to do something to help our planet celebrate her special day.

We took a walk around and tried to think what we could do. Mom showed us these pretty flowers  growing on the shady side of the fence.

Samba took a close look at them and agreed that they make our yard look pretty.

Mom said we could plant some more flowers to make our little bit of the planet even more beautiful. That sounded like a good idea to us.

Mom got out the gardening tools. Who knew you needed so many tools to make flowers? There were flowers pots and water cans and a digger tool.

What's in here?

Wait, Norma Jean, that's for the flowers.

Sky, where are you going with the flower pot?

Tess is busy tenderizing the flower pot. That's an important step in gardening that lots of people forget about.

Morgan is checking out the watering cans. I wonder what happened to the end of that one.

Tess thinks this is going to be a lot of fun. Let's get busy.

You don't need these watering cans, Mom. Noah and Sky and I can water the flowers for you.

You don't need that digger tool either, Mom. Morgan and Bailey are good diggers. They can handle that for you.

What do you mean our feet are getting too dirty. How do you plant flowers without getting a little dirty?

Norma Jean doesn't think Mom can see her dirty feet.

Well, that's how we're celebrating Earth Day. We're planting flowers and wearing lots of Earth on our feet. We think every day should be Earth Day, don't you?

Sounds like a lot of fun! I love nasturtiums. (Did I spell that right?) They're my favorite summer flower.

Stella said...

Definitely a good thing. But what do you do when the ground is still frozen? Is there a special trick to that?

Cheers and hugs,

Nanook, Stella and Zkhat of the North!

Happy Earth Day!

Rascal would be so happy to join your pack and help with the digging. With him around, our garden is a constant digging and replanting.

So sorry to read about your adventures last week, hope you've recovered, and have a great weekend!

So cute! "Tenderizing" was my favorite part... Sissy has dragged more than one of my spare pots out of its storage spot...

Tracy said...

Pee Ess, Mom hopes Phantom and Tsar eat too, but Phantom is on some restricted food - he is having some tummy/intestinal issues:(

Mom forgot that you guys are diggers. Silly Mom, getting out her own digger thing. Just not as good as a dog.

We can't plant anything for a couple more weeks. 34 last night is not kind to flowers and whatnot.

Happy Easter, all of you!

Tenderising the pots! No wonder we have so much trouble growing things. You are so lucky having all those horticulturalists to help you.

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

Your dogs are always so cute and eager to help. I did not know that flower pots needed to be tenderized first - thanks so much for that helpful tip. g

We came over because we hadn't put the day for National Bandanna Day on our calendar - we could remember the color, but not the date - guess we'd better get Mom on the ball - we'll need a dozen because all the puppies will still be here!!

It was too cold and rainy here today to plant anything, but Mom has onions up about 8 inches high!!

XOXO
