Tom the Gardening Wonder Boy / Rob's new word

Tom loves to garden. He couldn't wait for springtime so he could get outside in the backyard, and this past weekend proved it.
TOM'S GARDENING: After stopping at a nursery where Tom bought 12 shrubs, and about 24 lower ground plants,  I (Rob) went grocery shopping and Tom went planting in the backyard!
  Here are some of the pics of his work, although the photos don't do his work justice. We have a great backyard thanks to his efforts and planning.

Is Dolly going to help daddy Rob demonstrate his new word?

   My contribution to the backyard is "Pooperation."
  Here's the definition: Pooperation: : The convenience of picking up after your dog when there's a trash barrel around (fortunately we have one near the backyard).
  It DID get sunny enough one day this weekend to make our "Solar powered fountain" work for a day, but clouds moved in Sunday, Monday...etc....

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
