no partner, no problem

I only have four flowering plants in my garden. Oh well, blame it on the dogs because they destroyed almost all my plants, broke a lot of terracotta pots, trampled and messed with good soil that i was supposed to use for planting. I always wake up in the morning with the sight of a very messy and dirty garage with pieces of chewed up plants scattered everywhere. It stopped when there’s no more pots to break and plants to chew on.

At the onset of rainy season, i noticed that my two gardenia plants started to bloom. I often wonder why plants love rain WATER. As i search the net for answers, i found out that rain water is slightly acidic and it contains some organic matter that plants love and need to thrive and bloom.

My dogs Marwind and his partner in crime Raf-raf  (click my ABOUT page to see their photo) most likely knew that they should not mess with this plant as it is included in the list of toxic plants that i found in the ASPCA website. Now i know why they were spared. If you’re interested to know the complete listing of toxic and non-toxic plants to dogs, here’s the link.

And speaking of PARTNERS, here are photos of my adorable buddies.

As always, Tiger is my ever loyal laptop buddy. The moment i open my laptop he will jump on the table and flop himself right away to catch my attention then he’ll take a nap.

Here’s Boots with that mellow stare as if begging me to give him a piece of my sandwich. Boots is my all-time food buddy as he’ll always at my side when i eat. Well, he wins most of the time as i give him the chicken treat that i personally prepare for him. He loves boiled chicken meat.

Here’s the ever so playful chubby Ashton who loves to sleep on top of the laptop and is also my alternate laptop buddy.

And at the end of the day… here’s my adorable sleep buddy Star. She instantly made one of my pillows her own but that’s okay. (Umm … mom i think you need to clean my nose now to remove those food marks so i would look prettier , haha.)

No partner in life.. no problem. My furry partners keep me company and i adore them to bits.

It’s a wonderful day. Don’t forget to smile 🙂

      i’m not really sure what particular season they should bloom but based on my experience they don’t during summertime but as the rain emerge they bloom and everyday i notice new ones.. i don’t really dote on these plants but i occasionally sprinkle coffee grounds on soil that i get for free at starbucks.

      thank you :).. taking care of them is not easy but they make me happy.. i find it so calming everytime i pet them as i caress their soft fur and hear them purr..
