Our garden isn’t very pretty. Despite mummy and daddy’s poor efforts to tidy it up, it’s still a bit of a disaster zone. Admittedly being small there’s not a lot they can do with it. I help as best as I can of course, but even that’s not really enough.

The other day they decided to get some plants for our planters, which were happily growing weeds in them. These got unceremoniously dug out and in their place they put funny smelly herbs. I decided to dig them up check them out.


Apparently my gardening skills were not required and my help went completely unappreciated.

But now we have a bud on one of the fuchsia’s they don’t seem to mind as much.

  9. Mom loves fuchsia flowers. We had one but she isn’t a good gardener. She often forgets to water things. I think you were a big help..don’t understand how that didn’t go over well. I like checking on the plants we do have though. They smell interesting.

  10. Oh my, we thinks our Mommy wouldn’t appreciate your help either. Fenris tried to help with the strawberries but Mommy was very vocal about not appreciating his efforts. ~Tuiren

    Your SKILLS were SO UNDER APPRECIATED. We love doing YOUR kind of gardening too.

  14. Jane Y. says:

    heeheehee. so talented misaki! 🙂

  15. Kyla says:

    Yup, you can help with the irrigation. At least that’s what Easy says.

  16. My job is to dig the holes and pick the tomatoes. Works out nicely for me.

  17. We like to eat the garden and just the other day our mum had to put a house plant outside on the deck because… well… I ate and scared it to almost death (me, Bella). Your fuchsia plant is very pretty. wag wag

  19. Emmadog says:

    Not big on gardening at my house. As long as our grass, trees and shrubs don’t die, we are happy.

  20. Our flowerpots are hanging too high up for me to reach, but I do help trimming the grass now and then. It’s a good thing you’re keeping an eye (paw) on things over there, M.

    Love and licks,

  21. We need a professional to come in with an endless budget to clean up our mess!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  24. Mags Corner says:

    Chancy loves gardening and he always helps. Some places he tills though is not where I want to plant so we have to work together to smooth those places back out. He is a big help with weeding and digging out roots. We are sorry sweet Misaki that your help was unappreciated. The fuchsia us a very pretty color. Hugs and nose kisses

  25. One thing I did last year after I lost Abby was to start a memorial garden for her. I do love gardens but I am not as skilled as a true gardener should be. But I do enjoy puttering in the yard and making flowers bloom.

  26. pawedblog says:

    Haha Misaki you’re as good at gardening as I am!
    Hugs, Carrie and Pups x

    Hi Y’all!

    My Humans try to plant things than don’t require lots of attention cause they spend so much time away. In the mountains my Human tried to plant some stuff, but there is only a thin layer of top soil. My Human can’t get the shovel in over an inch. So much for planting. She had someone put some plants between rocks on the bank but heavy rains have washed all the soil off a couple of rose bushes and azaleas, so they died.

    Y’all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  29. Rebekah says:

    My dogs are quite jealous of your style of gardening/helping the people garden… : )

  30. Kroten says:

    You look like a good gardener, Misaki 🙂

  31. I love to garden but haven’t had much time to attend to it this year. I am still growing some weeds in my planters! Bentley likes to help by laying wherever I am working.

  32. Gambler helps to water the plants!

  33. Oh, yes, I do. I like to watch all the crawling and flying creatures in the flowers and on the ground, but most of all I love to water the plants and fertilize them once in a while 😀 Pawkisses 🙂

  34. Laika says:

    I love to dig plants up. My mom don’t appreciate it either. Weird peeps.
