Goose the Gardner

Hello Friends.

After yesterday's mischief failure I decided to be a helpful boy for my MOM.  She had a little free time yesterday and it was either take me for a hike or clean up the flowerbeds in the front of the house.  Well since I have not felt to well for a couple of days (that's why there was no mischief) I thought it best if we got to those flower beds.  For the most part I just lay in the sun, them moved to the shade and back to the sun as I supervised.  But once she was almost done I thought I better take a closer look at the work she had done.  That is what a supervisor does after all.

"Looks pretty good MOM.  You've done a nice job.  Even got those little weeds in the middle of this pretty plant."

"Oops.  MOM looks like you need to put the down spout thingy on the gutter thing a bob."

My MOM just loves this.  Yea we know it's not normal.  But in the middle of one of the Lilac bushes these tulips grow.  The first year we were here there was one.

Now this is our 3rd Spring and there are now 3 growing.  MOM just loves that they grow in the middle of the shade of the Lilac.

Oooo wait there is a weed right there.

Hahahha, that reminds me.  "Hey MOM remember last year right in this spot when you grabbed a weed to pull that was next to a stick?  Hahhaha and and AND it was was not a stick or a weed that you grabbed but a snake?  Hahahha.  Oh those were good times."


  1. Oh Goose, sorry to hear you have not been feeling well. Please take care of yourself. You were good to supervise your MOM while she worked.
    Big Hugs to you!

  2. Your mom grabbed a snake!!!! That would have freaked My Vickie right out of her mind.

    Dude, I am sorry your feeling down. I kinda noticed you were quiet today. Kinda hung by yourself.

    You be sure to take rest just whenever you want to Goose - after all you are a senior now and that has 'little lie down for forty winkses' privileges!

    I agree with you about the tulips - they are superb. HHmmmm, and I've had several run-ins with 'sticks'... Fun. Not.

    Lots of healing hugs comin' your way from YAM-aunty. xxx

  20. Oh Goose you are such a big help finding those weeds. Careful she doesn't grab anything but a weed
    Benny & Lily

  21. Feel better real soon buddy. You are doing a great job in that garden. Best not to remind the peeps about the snake incident right before mealtime...might get postponed a bit? :)

  22. Get well soon Goose! At least you managed to supervise mom, she did a really good job! Marks out of 10 for her? I'd give her 11! Urgh, a snake? That must have been super scary!
    Pippa :)

  23. You are such a good boy, Goose. Sorry you're not feeling well. Hope that changes right away and you're back to your inquisitive self.

  24. Hi Goose, I loved seeing you supervising your mom! Great job by the way. I hope you are feeling 100% back to normal and whatever bug was bothering you, is long gone!!!
    Have you gotten any rain? We are supposed to get a lot today. I need to get out in the yard too.

  25. SNAKE? Oh no......... Our Mom just ran away.

  26. Goose, we are sorry to hear you haven't been feeling well - we hope you are better now. Phantom has had a few rough days too but Mom thinks it is that time of the year with t-storms all around.

    You are a great gardener - just watch out for those snakes. Love the tulip story - so sweet.

  30. Hey Goose!
    Wow, I'm so sorry to hear you have the sickies! That's no good at all. I'm gathering some healing vibes to send to you right away. I hope you get all better fast. Very pretty flowers and I like those tulips too. I bet that snake was as surprised as your Mom was! BWAR HAR HAR
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, Furiend

  31. My momma just about had a heart attack at your last story. OMD!! I would've had to leap into action to get rid of the skeery thing and then call an ambulance for my momma, 'cause she'd be passed out.

  32. A snake?? YIKES!! We hope you are feeling better. Mom is painting today again.

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  33. Oh, Goose, I hopes you get to feelin' right as rain ASAP! There might be sticks that need rescuing!
    I thinks that snake was just playin' a jokes on your Moms!! BOL
    Oh, I'm sure glads you told us that story!! hehehe

  34. Ahh, looks nice and worm oops, warm in that sunshine. My mama likes to garden too. A snake, cool, we don't have those up here but mama says she likes them as long as they arn't the poison ones.

  35. You are a wonderful gardener Goose, I bet your Mom couldn't even do it without you. If my Mom picked up a snake, she would still be recovering a year later and possibly be ready to go back outside again.

  36. Lee remembers in Bible Study they said seventeen different Hebrew and Greek words are used to describe weeds in the Bible. Yep we have at least seventeen varities growing in our yard.
    Thanks for stopping by our blog, glad we could give you a laugh about our gymnastics on the down side of the hill.

  38. Goose, you are a good snoopervisor indeed!!! ;-)

  39. You are a good helper, Goose! Love your crazy two-lips. We have so many crazy plants that aren't where they are suppose to be...plants can misbehave just like dogs!!


  40. Goose! Did your Mommy scream when she gots the snake? My Daddy would has!

  41. WOW! My mom wants to know if you can come here and help out. She'll cook for you!

  42. A snake? It looks like you're doing a good job overseeing things, making sure last year doesn't happen again. Whew! Happy seeing beautiful, friend!
