Today is my baby girl's birthday.
She's only 2!
I usually talk about Blue and my other dogs don't always get proper mention
but I do love them ALL dearly.
To be honest, Ping has a very special place in my heart even though I haven't had her as long as my senior dogs.
Sometimes that just happens. Someone creeps in under the radar and steals your heart
and she and Poppy have done that.
(SSSSSH, don't tell the others).
Poppy is the second youngest,
only 4 years old but she refuses to play with Ping.
In fact she will close her eyes if Ping runs up to her to play.
I'm not sure if Poppy is trying to just ignore her
or maybe wish her away.
I know this sounds INSANE but I have thought about getting Ping a playmate!
The others will play with her for a couple of minutes but then just walk away
and Ping is still ping-ponging around the room until she stops and sees they have all left.
Anyway, I love this little one.
She is FEARLESS!
(This is a photo of Ping when she somehow jumped up on top of the cabinet
and got into one of the cat beds so that she could look out the window!)
Yesterday after working the morning at the clinic, me and my sister took a little road trip.
We try to go to Sunnyfield's Garden Center every Spring
and last Christmas I had given my sister a handmade "gift certificate" which said
I would buy her one flower/plant from there.
So I bought her a plant and she bought some more!
and I bought a couple for my garden.
Speaking of my garden...
I woke up to rain this morning
and when it started to let up I went outside and took a couple of photos.
Here's my Gerber Daisy that I kept inside all winter.
My Lilacs are in full bloom and are almost done.
All my Hostas are growing HUGE and I'm not done transplanting them!
And this is one of my birdhouses sitting on one of my wooden boxes that I have "collected".
It's surrounded by my Lilies, a burning bush and a clematis
(It cost me $2.00 and is sitting on a stool that cost me 50 cents.)
I have decided to use all my STUFF that I can in my garden.
I plan on painting everything different colors.
Yep, I'm going to use what I can and donate the rest.....
that's the plan.
It's not raining any longer!
I MUST get outside.
Have a wonderful SUNDAY!
