Mother, may I . . .please?

Hmmmm, what have we here?  First time I have seen anything like this.  It was a Mother's Day present to Mom from the little grandbipeds.

Sniff, sniff, any bunnies in there?

Mom says I can't eat it.

If I close my eyes, I can almost taste it.

Awwww, please, just one little nibble.

Ciara told me she got in big trouble when she was younger and ruined Mom's potted plants.
 Note from the Momster: there will be NO potted plants on the deck this year other than in the taller planters:)

Now what am I supposed to do?


Woos, Lightning

Woof! Woof! Oh What a lovely flowers for your mom and a perfect spot in your garden. Lots of Golden ALOHA n Woofs, Sugar

Priscilla said...

What a beautiful garden! It seems the flowers and plants are well-protected, seriously!!!

GOOSE said...

I hear in real fancy restaurants that they put pretty flowers in food. Hope you get a little nibble.

Jo's World said...

Get a grip on it, Lightning! Go look for bunnies elsewhere and leave the flowers be. What a nice gift from the little kidlets!


T. Maxx said...

No bunnies? what about squirrels?


Jeanne Pursell said...

Here's a tip for you Lightning! There just might be CHIPPIES in there!!! We have found them hiding out...just sayin'

Beautiful gift for your mom from the little ones!!

Love your garden!!

Those were really gorgeous flowers for your human Mom. You had a sensational garden. :)

What are they called? The purple and yellow flowers look very pretty. I don't have a green thumb so most of the flowers I try to plant... well, let's just say, they always turn out brown and wilted.

Happy Mother's Day to the Woo Mom!

Huggies and Cheese,

Happy belated Mother's Day to your Mom. You have such a lovely garden. Poor Lightning, I could hear you crying all the way over here. At least you can sniff on them.


Madi and Mom said...

Morning Lightning
what a most beautiful hanging basket your Mom rec'd from the little people. Mom moves the yellow and purple. Good to know there will not be any plants in harms way this year.

I got into trouble on Saturday night.
There was a well wrapped apple pie on our peeps were outside on the porch eating theirs and did not give me any so I knocked the entire pie on to the floor. AND I sat right beside it until the peeps came in. I proudly owned up to the deed too. Luckily the the pie was only a tad disfigured.

Gus said...

that is a lovely basket. And it is not only up high, it is inside the "no sibe" zone too.

We think you had best leave it alone.

One little nibble won't be noticed - we're ALMOST certain!

houndstooth said...

I have a feeling it went into the Plant Protection Program! I can't believe The Momster doesn't trust you with her flowers, Lightning!


Sarge said...

Hey Lightning!
Wow, what pretty flowers! Mom wants to know if those are Million Bells. The colors are really pretty and would have gone well with your fur if only you'd been allowed to play with them. I don't understand that either. Sigh. Dirt was made for digging!
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Did woo hear my Momster skhweeeee at the kholours on your new template and header?


Nice job Lightning ;-)


Casey said...

I just don't get why humans have those things around and then yell at us not to eat them. Do we put a salad bar in their house and then yell at them not to eat?!

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Bibi-Chan, Gen-Chan, Vidock said...

LIfe is just full of temptations, isn't it, Lightning?


Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

I do NOT understand this. WHY would SHE NOT want you to "Tend" to her beautiful flowers.
So unfair!!!

I love the new blog look!!

Stewey said...

Humans just don't get us, do they Lightning?!?!
The little grand bipeds sure know how to pick out a beautiful Mother's Day gift!

The Websters said...

You should stand guard to make sure no other animals get it either. That would be completely unjust.


Remington said...

They are beautiful! Take good care of them....

sprinkles said...

You really do look like you're crying, "Waaah!" in that last picture, bol!

I love your blog background. You always find the best backgrounds.

I hope you can join in my annual Doggone Dog Swap this year!

Sue said...

Lightning, you listen to your Mom and not to Ciara. Your sis thinks she's a master gardener, but her technique needs some work.

Dude! I'd milk that one for a cookie for sure!

Ginger Jasper said...

The plater is just beautiful. I am kinda glad that your mum is keeping it high up becaause its too lovely to be nibbled... HUgs GJ xx

NanaNor's said...

Hey there, So glad you listened to your mom and left the plant alone, just daydreamed about it!!! Even though it is beautiful, it could always upset your tummy-plus your mom. The littles were very thoughtful to bring it to her. Now you can all enjoy it, up high and safe.
High Paws to you today.

Mr. Pip said...

Maybe you can make some kind of deal with the squirrels and bunnies - like they get in the pot and pass you down some goodies?

Your pal, Pip

Soggibottom said...

Happy belated Mother's Day :-)

It all depends how deep that pot is, not that it is high... if I had been you, you should have taken your chance and put your paws RIGHT IN TO START WITH... looks good diggin soil.....

BOL! Lightning, we think you are going to have a lot of fun this summer! We just hope you don't get caught! :)

Mitch and Molly said...

You'll just have to enjoy the pretty basket of flowers from the other side of the fence, Lightning!

Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly

Your flowers are lovely! I've given up on gardening....

Lorenza said...

I wonder why she put it out of your reach!!!

Oh Lightning, It is a beautiful plant and we love whre it is sitting in the last pictures. Ciara is wise in telling you not to play with it.

It looks so much better in the yard.

jen said...

What a beautiful hanging basket! I am trying to figure out what type of flowers they are but I can't! Uggh, stupid green thumb is not working again!

Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!

Kari in Vegas said...

It sure does look yummy

Stop on by for a visit

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

The little bipeds were very clever to think of HANGING flowers! We bet momster loves their splash of color in the No Sibe Zone!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Oh I hope you find something to play with that is not your mommas plants!

chicamom85 said...

Your blog looks beautiful!

Lightning, that does look quite delicious. I admire your self control. I am sorry you can't have it, but maybe Mommy is making some of those yummy homemade treats again.

Linda said...

I bet that was torture for you, Lightning. You can look, but don't touch! Not even a little nibble!

Gracie =^o.o^= said...

Hope your mommie had a Happy Mother's Day. Lovely flowers you got for her, way to go!!

Chicco said...

Oh lightning,

you're beautiful like those beautiful flowers :)
I hope you and your dear mommie had a great mother's day!
Woof, woof,


P.S. I loved the new header photo!

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Hi Lightning, that is a beautiful pot but it looks better hanging up. Too much temptation isn't it mate. Mum hasn't got many pots with plants left thanks to us, woops! No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Mango said...

Well, that certainly presents a challenge. I suspect that if you think about it long enough that you will figure something out. Just remember to wipe your nose off before going inside. You can use Ciara for that. Nobody will ever suspect the little princess of messing with the plants.


haopee said...

I just dropped by to say Happy Tuesday ^^.

Huggies and Cheese,


Wyatt said...

Well, that IS NO FUN! Where is a dog to dig if there are no planters? I'm sure you will all come up with a plan :D
