I like Thursday: April 11, 2019

Happy Spring Thursday!

Where are you finding happiness this week?  Join LeeAnna at Not Afraid of Color for more positive posts!

This week we love dog friends!  Scout knows where every one of her friends lives and drags me by each one's house.  Luca is one of her favorite friends!

Willis came by to visit Scout at home and decided that all our plants needed some (ahem) watering.  Scout didn't care she was so enthralled to have a friend over!

Scout also loves her people friends and insist she visits our neighbors each day.  They spoil the heck out of her too :)

It's gardening season which means a lot of clean-up and pruning.  I like the work so much and find it peaceful and happy.  It's like visiting an old friend and I like the discoveries I find, like last season's bird nest:

For over two decades I've lived in this neighborhood and always wondered about these pretty blue flowers that emerge this time of year.  FINALLY I thought to ask one of my neighbors if he knew the name of them--and he did!
They are called "siberian squill" and in some areas just fill the lawns with blue.

I was at the garden center and saw this funny poodle watering can.  It's for a child and my grandkids are too old but I thought it was a hoot!

I hope you have a pleasant week and am praying for those in the midwest who are enduring snow and blizzards!  Stay safe and warm!

Hi Michele! Aww, that poodle watering can is so cute. Now, if I were into gardening I might need to pick that up for Dominic as I'd get him into it as well. Instead, he'll have to enjoy sewing and baking instead. I think a few of our poodle loving friends just might need one of those - you could have one for decoration. Happy Thursday to you. ~smile~ Roseanne

Scout is such a cutie - I love her light grey nose. Siberian squill - what a funny name. It's a pretty ground cover.

How fun for Scout to have so many dog and human friends who love her - she looks so sweet cuddling up with your neighbor! I like that blue ground cover, too. I always wish I had more blue in my flower garden. Enjoy your gardening time, Michelle!

You and LeeAnna could both use that watering can. What a great photo of Scout and the neighbour. Squill is very pretty and I am green with envy seeing all your very spring likes!

I'd love that watering can!!! Go now and get us some! Scout is so much like Milo, makes you believe in genetics. He stands that way, inviting play. He loves being hugged, Cole hated it.

Siberian squill - that's a new one. I love that color. When we were selling our house in Ohio, the realtor told us that blue draws the eye, so our bountiful forget-me-nots were a bonus from that perspective! Finding nests is always so interesting - I am always fascinated by the construction! Joining you from I Like Thursday.
