Flower Tragedy

I pride myself (not really) on my non-green thumb qualities, so am always shocked when something I plant actually grows. Last year, I was so excited to post pictures of my daisies and day lilies growing, and the shot of Jacob pointing at one of my daisies is priceless.

So anywho, I got some tulips last year, and planted them out front by my daisies, and have been anxiously waiting to see if they will sprout. As Doane and I were out weeding, I saw that both tulips had green shoots, and one of them had a small bud. To my utter delight, yesterday my small bud had grown up, and was a beautiful pink. I ran inside and got my camera, to document my non-green thumb accomplishment. Enjoy!




But that is when disaster struck - the neighbors' clumsy spaz dog came tromping over for some attention. After thoroughly stomping around in the flower bed, she laid down ON TOP OF MY TULIP, and broke the stem off. Stinkin' dog! I have every intention of telling my neighbor, when he comes back from his trip, that he owes me some tulips! Not really, but it relieves some irksomeness to say it....

So here is my lone bud, drinking water from my little cup. Poor thing!

Tulips are one of my favorites.
Dogs sitting on tulips is not one of my favorites.
It is lovely though! And just look at the scentsy warmer in the background. What scent are you burning now? My favorite is still Coconut Lemongrass.

poor tulip. dumb dog. always the way it works though. something unique and pritty starts to grow and then something large,inconsiderate,and smelly has to waltz right over and trample it. atleast it got to bloom first.

That stinks. It's really pretty though! Just think how you are enjoying it more now because it's inside where you can see it all the time:)

Welllllll....now you get to see it every minute of the day. Does that help? No? And at least it wasn't the kids, so you don't have to yell at them :)
