Payton's Pink Daisies

In our back garden, we planted pink Gerber daisies in memory of Payton the pug.  They are thriving and growing!  The colors are so sweet and yet pale. We love to look at them and remember our friend!

Payton's daisies

We also have other beautiful flowers blooming.  Below is an Orange Kordana Miniature Tree Rose. It just blooms and blooms. The bees love all the flowers and the doggies are very interested in the bees. 


We also have some petunias hanging.

Mario is checking out the Geraniums.  (Yes, Mario is still with us.  It seems that cute Puggle puppies are now coming into foster care in droves.  They grow up to be very energetic doggies!)  He is such a sweet and loving, energetic puggle and hope that his forever family find him soon.

We also planted 50 Grecian Windflower bulbs and are waiting for them to come up.  We've had lots of rain and cooler weather but know that warm/hot/humid weather is just around the corner.

Have a great week.

Love, Minnie  : )

Those daisies are beautiful ... just like Payton! Our bleeding hearts are about 3" out of the ground already.

All of your flowers are pretty!

Love Zoe, Peyton, Webster & Liberty

We got Grecian windflowers, too! Flower power fundraiser. We hope to get ours planted soon. Love those pretty pink Gerberas. So lovely.

BEAUTIFUL, you guys! I especially like those purple petunias!
We planted 50 of those windflower bulbs, too. Given our weather conditions here in KS, it seemed like a good choice. Ha woo.

Great site! I'm trying to find an email address to contact you on to ask if you would please consider adding a link to my website. I'd really appreciate if you could email me back.

Thanks and have a great day!

My human Hsin-Yi love this post because although she loves flowers – she's the most hopeless gardener and she never knows the names of anything – so it was so nice for her to have names matched up to the pictures! :-) otherwise she is always having to describe them to people by saying things like "I like those purple flowers that are sort of shaped like a trumpet…" – And nobody knows what she's talking about! :-)

It's very sad about all the unwanted Puggles – it seems to be happening here Down Under as well because we started to see quite a few of them and Hsin-Yi has met quite a lot of people who tell her that they want a Puggle because they think that Puggles are perfect – it's the usual thing where they assumed that combining to breed would bring out the best in each breed and create a dog with no problems but of course, with genetics, you can never guarantee what the puppies will inherit – and it's not true that a hybrid breed will always be a perfect dog! All different dogs are perfect in their own way but they also all have their own needs and issues. I think people often think that they can just mix and match and use money to buy "perfection" – and it's the poor doggies who always suffer!

Hi My Minnie and Mack!
WOW! I really love the pink flowers for Payton, I miss her very much and love that everyone has planted pink flowers for her, Mum has got some pink flowers to plant for her too! All your flowers are so beautiful, your garden must look so wonderful! I love the photo of Mario with the Geraniums, he is so handsome, he has the most expressive and cute face! I just can not belive that Puggle Puppies are coming to foster care, Mum said that hearing that is so very sad and that she would have a house full of them! I would love to have Mario and I wish that he does find his forever home very soon. Love Licks and Hugs from your Friend and Love Frank xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

we have almost the same flowers :) I love gerber daises :) I miss reading about Miss Sweet Payton, I know she is in a better place thoug and like I told her mommy Fred showed her around at the bridge :) Thank you for the sweet words on my blog today.

Bruschi said...

What gorgeous flowers! I like the pink ones (I know I am a boy dog but pink is my favorite color....ssshhh!)
In the Pug Rescue here, puggles are popping up left and right too like crazy! And in the shelters...some aren't making it out! Who could get rid of a puggle?! :(

Thank you for your kind words for Mommy's friends. It's truly devastating.

Maddy and Owen said...

Your flowers are very beautiful! Bee careful with those bees though! We are glad that you are taking care of Mario and that his forever family comes along when it's right :)
