WARNING -- Lots of pictures!

As you all know yesterday was gardening day....well, flower garden....I was so busy planted and watering that time just flew by....if you are ready, I will start the LONG picture show....
Here we go....
All ready to start planting
Mike said I was a "great" help....did I hear some sarcasm there?
It got a little warm so we took a water break....
Here are some of the plants....some are new and some we just cleaned up the weeds....
This is the Gnome village....
Looks like Howard was home....
(Beth really likes the book The she named the three Gnomes that have houses there after the characters in the book -- Ellsworth, Peter and Howard )
It was a great day!
And what was Oz doing while I was working?
Playing with my toy, Bob!
THEN to REALLY make my day -- Mailman Mike drove up just grinning
from ear to ear and said
"Remington I have two packages for you". 
Well, I wagged my tail so hard it almost fell off!
Please excuse my little brother -- he's not very good at posing for pictures yet!
Come to find out -- one was for Oz and I
and the other was for Oz, Forrest, Dudley, Coleridge and I!
Forrest, Dudley and Coleridge were all napping but Oz and I opened it for them! 
Aren't we nice?
We got toys and treats and nice cards from Madi and her mommy and Zack, Sassy, Buddy at Dog Daze and their mommy! 
(if you click on their name you can check them out!) 

Later -- Remington -- the happy gardener
and VERY thankful for his friends -- out!

Yeah -- me too!

Your garden is looking quite lovely, Rem!

Great packages. It's nice when everyone gets fun stuff!

Hi OZ!

Awesome flowers Dude!

Your yard looks beautiful and I would just plant Mike's sarcastic remark in a pot to help fertilize some of the new flowers.

He wouldn't know what to do if you weren't there to lend a paw.

We're doing yard work today now that date night has come and gone. Starting early to avoid as much of the heat as possible. Granted there is always the hose game with the kids!

Have a great one
Your BroLeo.

What a beautiful yard you have, Remington. The flowers are all so pretty - Mom loves the petunia patch - beautiful purple blooms. The litte gnome village is so cute and we love their names.

Oz is a master of avoiding the flashy beast, but that last pic of him is just so cute.

Enjoy your garden, Remmie - you look mighty handsome out there.

You've a very beautiful garden and I'm sure you're a great helper. I love those beautiful flowers too, do you have to take a lot of time to take care of them? You might be busy in this summer doing gardening most of the time though : )

Oz is so cute!

Madi and Mom said...

Morning Rem...Please tell your landscape architects WELL DONE!!We loved seeing your garden and grounds. Beth had lots of nice places for bird feeders too.

Rem did you like the meow mail I sent you? Yep I rubbed all over the pull toy. MOL

We are glad you and Oz were awake when Mailman Mike arrived!!! The last picture of Oz is adorable!!!

Gus said...

Wow...All the snow is gone from your yard and it is bootiful. Now lets see...muzzer says you may have snow as early as October, so you have a few more months to enjoy all that lovely stuff.

Zona said...

OMD, you and Oz are so sweet! I love the pictures of you both with your pressies!! And your garden is gor-gee-ous!!! Mom especially likes the pots going up the stairs - she might borrow that idea. BOL! And your gnomes live a much more rounded life then ours do. Our just sit there - no village or cute abodes. Thanks for sharing!


♥I am Holly♥ said...

Congratulations on your packages in the that's what I would say great news!! Little Oz is still so small and he is so cute!! Enjoy your garden and today!! Lots of love, Debbie and Holly

Jess said...

Looks very nice! Your deck looks like a cozy place to hang out and relax! Yodi, of course, likes the look of all the yard to run around in. :)

JD and Max said...

Hi Remington - you have a beautiful garden, good job you're around to supervise all the planting and garden work. We loved your gnome village, very cute!

Great gifts in the mail too - how exciting, you really lucked out there, wonderful!

Mango said...

Your gardens look lovely and I have no doubt that you were a big help. Drinking out of the hose is most refreshing too. I hope that you approve of the placement of all the flowers and don't feel the urge to relocate them. That can upset the humans.

Rem, you are doing a great job of raising that kitten right. Oz is learning to pose, they just do not have the concentration (or dignity) you possess.
A beautiful job on the yard. We are building a Faerie village, hoping to attract wee ones. So far all we have attracted are rabbits.

Sagira said...

What a pretty back yard Remington. You and Mike did GREAT work.

How nice of your friends to send you some packages. Getting mail is the best.

Jacqueline said...

You and Mike did a great job on the flowers, Rem; your yard and deck look gorgeous!...What sweet gifts from your friends; you and Oz are too adorable together!...Happy Sunday friends...xo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

JackDaddy said...

I miss all the beautiful flowers. Thanks for sharing them with us!!

Martha and Bailey said...

Oh we just adore that last pic!!! We loved all the others too.......especially you and the flowers. Yes, Remington, it would appear that a Newfoundland can garden as well as a basset!
We have not yet got on to our hanging baskets - bad isn't it!
Great gifts from your friends - it is good to be loved.

I love your blog, you make me laugh with your rich sense of humor. And your garden, it's heaven on earth, I have so much to learn from you about gardening. The picture of all your purple flowers melt my mom's heart.
Would you like to be my friend, Remington?
