Off with their heads!!

Remember in the springtime when we reported on our tulips?? Well the garden people came a few weeks back and dug them up.  At first I was saddened, however my tears dried when I saw these bootiful impatiens that were planted!

Once again Riley is doing his best to make sure the neighborhood plants are being watered - what a citizen he is!

When on my walk the other day we met up with these lovely lady gardeners
...or "lovely" was what I initially thought until I saw what they were DOING to these poor innocent roses!!  They were chopping off their heads!!  
Look at the remains of their work!  How can these ladies smile when doing such awful deeds! 
So very sad. Sigh.

Love ya lots,

Oh no! It's a shame you couldn't collect the roses to make a practice bouquet for you to carry for your ringbearer duties! That's a very important job at a wedding, second only to the Bride! Is your Mommy getting married in Maine or on Cape Cod? That's where I've seen lighthouses on beaches!

Your pal,

Petey

Toffee, my Mom got really excited when she read about the wedding in Marblehead! She (and Mica, it was before my time) used to live in Boston, in the North End. (She liked the photos of the Aquarium too!) And one of her favorite places to go was Marblehead, especially at Fourth of July with all the lights around the harbour and the Christmas walk! We'll definitely have to meet you when you come to New York in November!

Your pal,

Petey
