blooms and bubby

i had a great mother's day.
boy-child called me first thing and promised goodies from the mail man maybe tomorrow. girl-child wished me a happy day with sweet kisses and ken took me out to brunch where girl-child works (it's the only way i can get her to wait on me!) then we hit the big-box garden center to finish up some work in the yard. i'm pooped. ken is still out there, going strong.
i planted the rest of the flowers in my shade garden along with this beautiful columbine ken bought today. see all the squirrell gizmos in the trees? have i mentioned my husband has a rather strange affinity for furry tailed rodents? it's perfectly adorable.
and today we finished ruger's resting spot. ken chiseled his name in stone. it's perfect.
and we planted a garden around him.
i know this is just shovel marks in the grass but i see a heart, marking the spot right where the best. dog. ever. rests in the yard:
i'm fine 'till i think about him, which is ALL THE TIME.
that dog was LOVED.

Your garden looks beautiful Melly. I love the pretty stone that hubby has carved. It was great to see you again!

I'll miss him too. I forgot and then I saw this post and teared up all over again. Who will sit on me when I come over? That is not an invitation for any sassy comments!
