Helping in the Garden and Remembering Nana

Hi Everybuddy

I thought I would help mum in the garden with some of the potplants.  They were looking pretty woeful.  I sniffed, dug and generally tried to encourage the plants to grow.  

Mum absolutely loves her boots.

Mum said they were pretty bad before I started to help and she thinks she will leave putting in new ones for a few months till someone grows up.  What the heck is she talking about? 

I had fun, for sure.  I like getting muddy and I like running inside with mud on my feet.  It is a good way to get them clean on the carpet.   

 One last thing.  While mum was waiting for the photos to upload tonight, she was looking around and she was suddenly amazed.  When it was my Mum and Dad's 25th Wedding anniversary, Nana and Poppa arrived at our house and gave them a special present.  It was a beautiful painting of a cow.  We love cows at our house.  Well, while she was looking tonight, she realised what the name of the cow in the picture was.  It was STELLA!!!!!  

My dear sweet Nana passed away nearly two years ago and I never knew her, but now mum feels my name is even more special than ever.   Here is our painting.   

Goodnight Everybuddy.  Sweet dreams.

No worries, and love, Stella




  1. Stella we applaud your approach to gardening, you are totally paws on!

    Stella the cow is very pretty. Our Mum loves the big beautiful eyes of cows.

    Stella you are very special.

    Sweet dreams little one.

    Molly, Taffy, Monty and Winnie

  2. Stella, you are so cute! I love your gardening escapades. And what a happy coincidence about 'Stella' - I'm sure you don't mind sharing your name with such a nice memory.

  3. Hi Stella, we'd like to wish your mom and dad a very happy 25th anniversary. I think that you're doing a super job gardening. Goodness knows, we've also done our share of damage to my mom and dad's carpets.

  4. Stella, you are just so cute!! Happy 25th Anniversary to your mom and dad!! We love the painting very much. Your approach to gardening is still Holly's way and she's almost 5 years old! Last month we planted a butterfly bush that has about died because "somebody" keeps digging in the dirt around it! Lots of love, Debbie & Holly

  5. Stella, you are going to be such a help in the Spring and Summer keeping the garden and pots freshly dug....and aerated. Keep up the good work.

    You're right carpet is great for cleaning your feet...and fur....and mouth after eating. Such a useful product.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  6. Stella - you are such a good help with the gardening! Tell your mom & dad "Happy 25th Anniversary!" Guess you and I have something in common - my mom & dad's 25th Anniversary is coming in September!

  7. Happy Anniversary to your Mom and Dad, Stella. 25 years is marvelous. Our Mom and Dad just celebrated 40 years. That painting is very nice - gorgeous cow with beautiful eyes.

    Ciara says you are a gardener after her own taste.

  8. Your Aunt Abby is so proud! She is also a champion digger. Don't be too surprised if someday a boxer-beagle head pokes up in your garden from where Abby has dug through from the U.S.

    Bet your mom had Stella the cow's name buried in her subconscious and when she saw your beautiful big brown eyes, it triggered a half-hidden memory of something she loved from her mom.

    Your new princess bed is so cute! Too bad the blankie we sent is now the wrong color :( Maybe Tyler could use it.
