Puppy Gardening

Take one seven plus month old pup...

Add some pretty blossoming trees.

And you get this.
Did you need a closer look? This was a lovely Japanese maple, by the way.

How about this one?

And the close-up of this poor shrub's destruction.

Frustrating! Our friends with a new golden retriever are experiencing the same thing. UGH! We realized it was time to fight back!
About $80.00 later at Lowe's...

We purchased versions of fencing and netting to try to find what would work best to protect what life we had left in our backyard.

Take that!!!! We're going to give our greenery a fighting chance! Unattractive as it may be.

Just in time for our re-finance. Lovely, huh? Mr. Appraiser, please pay ye no mind to the netting covering every living thing in our backyard!

We'll let you know how it goes!

By the way, all you horticulturists... Should we prune back some of those jagged, chewed off stalks of tree trunks or let them be?

We definitely need to get these two together - at your house! :) I can't imagine the destruction they could do together. Lets find a park. :) Miss you, it was so great to chat today. Lets bake soon. Love J
