Flower Friday

Today we are joining Rosy for Flower Friday.  Mom finally remembered to get some pics of our flowers.

A mini-garden of wax begonias with a pretty little girl statuette and her dog.

Another mini-display with a mix of superbells, million bells, and more wax begonias.

A view of our front entryway.  That wreath was made by Deb from The Three Little Pugs for our Mom a couple of years ago.  Mom added a few bright pink flowers to it as the sun had damaged some of the original ones.  

This planter is tucked in a corner on the front porch and is also filled with wax begonias - the one flower that seems to do the best for Mom.

A closer view of one of the porch urns.  Lots of pink geraniums, some trailing ivy, and a spike in the middle. 

Inside we have this beautiful orchid.  It is still pretty small but it never fails to bloom.

Moving back outside to the back yard, here are the fenced-in flowers.   They are fenced-in because somePup would stick her snooter in the planter and pull the plants out:)  We don't know who that was, but Mom said she wasn't taking any chances this year.

In the planters are a mix of lantana and penta.  The deck gets a lot of direct sun, and with the windows behind the planters, Mom has to plant flowers that do very well with the heat.  

The Five Prisoners seem to be thriving despite their incarceration.

Don't they look nice and healthy?

This is a diplodenia that Mom moves inside for the winter.  She is hoping it will start to bloom soon because it doesn't get much sun inside and never blooms inside.

Well, this isn't exactly a flower, but our one tomato plant growing in a "smart" pot is doing very well.  It has several yellow flowers and  . . . 

  . . .if you look closely, you can see four tiny tomatoes coming along.

Now wait a minute, Mom.  That's not supposed to be here for Flower Friday.  OK, we will tell them about it.  Our two chimneys that are covered with stucco had very fine cracks in them. In order to repair, all the stucco had to be removed.  Lo and behold, ALL the wood underneath was totally rotted.  So both chimneys have to be rebuilt from top to bottom and then re-stuccoed.  Mom and Dad just roll their eyes when they think about the costs - several tens of thousands of dollars:(  But it is maintenance that HAS to be done.  The next steps should begin next week on this chimney, and then they will do the same for the other one.

We couldn't let this post be complete without at least one pic of us.  We are all smiling because Mom says we have all been very good about leaving her flowers alone (so far).

We will close with this beautiful pot of flowers that Mom got for Mother's Day from one of our human sisters.  It is just gorgeous.

Happy Memorial Day Weekend.

Tasty Tuesday #ChewyInfluencer

G'day, Mateys!!!  How ya going?

Are you wondering why we are talking as if we are living Down Under?  Well, as you can see, it is time for our May ChewyInfluencer review, and we have something "fair dinkum" for you.

This month we received a full case of 12 cans of Zignature canned dog food from our friends at  Crikey - that looks good!!!

Take a closer look, matey!  It is KANGAROO!!! 


Fill your best friend’s bowl with wholesome nutrition when you feed them Zignature Kangaroo Limited Ingredient Formula Grain-Free Canned Dog Food. Your pup will enjoy a delicious dinner made with real, sustainably-sourced Kangaroo from Australia, wholesome peas, chickpeas, and blueberry. This meat-first recipe offers pups the protein they need to thrive, while Zignature’s limited ingredient recipe throws out troublesome ingredients like chicken, corn, wheat, soy, and potatoes, creating peak hypoallergenic, low-glycemic nutrition. Combine that with key antioxidants, essential fatty acids, and a complete spectrum of vitamins and minerals for a well-rounded meal that goes beyond nature to become your pet’s signature food for life.

Peas??? Blueberries?  Chick peas???  And KANGAROO???

Key Benefits:

  • This grain-free, limited ingredient formula is made with one protein source and only a handful of other ingredients, creating a clean recipe with ingredients you can count on.
  • Made with quality Kangaroo meat from Australia, an exceptional source of complete protein, with virtually no saturated fat.
  • Kangaroo contains nearly twice the Vitamin B12 as other meats and is rich in Iron, essential Omega-3 Fatty Acids, other B Vitamins, and Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA).
  • Free of the most common potential canine allergens: corn, wheat, soy, dairy, and chicken, making this recipe ideal for pups with sensitivities and picky eaters.
  • Wholesome fruits and vegetables round out the recipe with powerful antioxidants, and fiber-rich, low-glycemic carbohydrates.


Kangaroo, Broth, Peas, Sunflower Oil, Carrots, Chickpeas, Agar-Agar, Sun-Cured Alfalfa Meal, Choline Chloride, Salt, Tricalcium Phosphate, Calcium Carbonate, Potassium Chloride, Cranberries, Blueberries, Minerals (Zinc Proteinate, Iron Proteinate, Copper Proteinate, Manganese Proteinate, Sodium Selenite, Calcium Iodate), Vitamins (Vitamin E Supplement, Thiamine Mononitrate, Niacin Supplement, Calcium Pantothenate, Biotin, Vitamin A Supplement, Riboflavin Supplement, Vitamin B12 Supplement, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Vitamin D3 Supplement, Folic Acid).

We can't wait to "wrap our laughing gear around that"!  You can even see the peas that are in there.

Now before we are "knackered" from all this review work, let's see if we liked having some 'roo in our dinner.

"Streuth" - that was EXCELLENT!!!  Or as the Ozzies say, "heaps good!!!"

In addition to the kangaroo formula, you can also find a huge assortment of other flavors, including pork, venison, turkey, salmon, duck, trout and salmon, lamb, and catfish!!!  Check them out right HERE at

Hey, Mom  - dinner was GREAT!!!  Now can we have some Zignature Kangaroo food for "brekkie" too?

Thanks to Ms. Natalie and all her staff at the ChewyInfluencer team at for sending us at no cost this fantastic case of Zignature canned food in exchange for a fair and honest review - it was fabulous!!!

Cheers - catch ya later!!

Wondering Wednesday

MAMA'S BOY - yes, that would be me.  I am proud of it too:)  Today I am WONDERING if you have a little extra POTP to spare for me.  I have a sore front leg and have been limping a bit.  Mom says I forget that I am not a young whippersnapper like those two youngsters in the house.  I may or may not have been doing a few too many zoomies trying to keep up with Misty and Timber:(  Mom has me on house rest, not house ARREST, just inside quiet time.
