Whew!

Mommy has been busy!! She went out on Saturday to get some big bushes that would make the front of the house pretty and she came back with Rhodedendrons. I like the purple! She also had some Columbines and some Dwarf Columbines (I think they should be called Vertically Challenged Columbines). Then right in the front she put Coral Bells. She says that is the most amount of work she should have to do to that area. After this season, they all should come back and grow in nicely. I hope so, I hate having to watch from the window. But I did get to see Autumn help the mommy plant all those. Mommy would dig a hole, Autumn would come over and sniff it, then she would put her paw in it and try to play with the worms. after the hole met her approval Autumn would sit next to it and let mommy put the plant in. Sometimes mommy would have to move Autumn in order to move the dirt back in place, but not often. They started on Saturday and finished on Sunday. I think it makes the front of the house look much better. this is what it looked like on Friday.
Since it rained last weekend we didnt get our mulch for the beds. Mommy says that it is ok since she wasnt ready for it anyway. she is going to be working on the side yard this week to get it ready and then when the mulch comes everything will look pretty all at one time.

And mommy says the nice thing is that in spring the bulbs will come up first and when they start to die back the other flowers will start growing. When they are done blooming, the Gladiolas will start to bloom. When they are done, the mums will be out and then it will be winter again. I cant wait to see if she is right.

The Mom loves the rhododendrens, especially the purple colored ones. It is going to look so nice, and your Mom is right about what is going to come up and when. She is a smart Furless one!!

Mouse,

I was able to sneak on again, and I sent you a letter on Zeus' blog. Check it out when you have a chance.

Also, I love the flowers, but those lead to allergic reactions, and I just can't have that.

Your yard looks very nice. We can only see ours through the screen 'cause we're never allowed out. Our Mom has all purr-any-alls in the ground and puts annuals in the pots to move around. We like the bees and butterflies that visit our flowers.
