Flashback Friday with Angels Tulip and Leo in the garden.

My garden took a major hit during my absence. I was away for two weeks, the temperatures were above 85F daily and my garden was watered twice! No finger pointing because we are not all gardeners but... my garden took a serious hit! Some plants needed to be dug up because they were out and out dead and dead and dead indeed! I have been slowly resuscitating the others for the past three weeks and have added other plants and things are coming along nicely now.  I thought I'd share a few photos of my garden in its' revived state, mixed in with  a few photos of angels Tulip and Leo who loved the garden when they lived here with me :)

We hope you enjoyed the photos of our garden and of our never forgotten angels , Tulip and Leo.

Happy 4th of July to our American furiends!

Have a Fabulous Friday!
See you Sunday for Sunday Selfies.

  1. What lovely memories... but I have to say, my human is the kind of gardner that would forget to water the plants too! My catnip garden was on its last legs when she remembered she had the automatic sprinklers on off! Geez....

  2. Such beautiful pictures ...and both Leo and Tulip look in absolute heaven. How sweet and they happy they were! I have a flashback post of our cat Daisy on the blog today. Hope you will stop by.

  3. We love looking for your garden kitties in your photos.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  4. That was such a nice flashback and we enjoyed seeing the pics.

  8. Such a beautiful garden. We just thankful we have some green grass in the front yard, thanks to the recent rain.

  9. Beautiful photos - of the garden and the kitties.

  10. Leo and Tulip were adorable, I bet they were both sweeties. Your flowers
    are all beautiful- you have a green thumb.

  11. Thank you for the lovely photos of Tulip and Leo. I miss them and haven't forgotton them either. They had such a good home with you.

    Sorry the garden took such hit. I know how that can happen in the heat. You will bring it back though!


  12. I'm so jealous. I love my garden as well, but what did our human do??? She brought us to a flat with no balcony and no garden. Is this animal abuse? If yes, could you contact some authorities? /Tessa

  13. So nice to see the angel cats :)

  14. It's so nice to see Angels Tulip and Leo again. <3

    Sorry to hear about your garden, LP. We hope all those your efforts to revive it are met with great success.

  15. What a great garden! Ours is AWFUL!!! Mommy spent too much time in Calgary this spring on all those trips that ours is totally neglected. And it was so nice to see the angels enjoying the garden!
    Thanks for sharing!

  16. Lily Olivia was so excited to see Leo as was Mom. What wonderful photos of him. We think of him often. Also enjoyed seeing Tulip and, of course, all the photos of your exquisite garden. You definitely have a green thumb. Enjoy the remainder of your weekend. Thanks for joining our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop.
