Payton's Garden



So I hemmed and hawed a lot about where I would put a garden for Payton. I do NOT have control over the landscaping, as much as I would like to. Mommy helped me pick out seeds LAST YEAR and we were determined to plant SOMETHING out there. But Auntie T had such a great plan already in place for the garden that our little plot just never got going.

Then the most wonderful thing happened. Last week at Zoey's birthday party her mommy let us take one of the table decorations - a little garden in a tea cup! I was so surprised and happy because nestled in the middle of the tea cup were the most perfect pink flowers ever!!! I decided then and there that this was to be Payton's Garden.

After living on the kitchen table a couple of days the flowers started looking unhappy. Mommy #2 decided to put them on the front step where they would get morning sunshine and an occasional watering from the sprinklers on the lawn. Guess what? The flower totally got happy and perked up completely.

Now every time I come in the front door I can say a little hi to Payton through her little garden. She was a good FURiend and I an glad I finally found just the right memorial for her.









HAPPY THOUGHT OF THE DAY: Spring flowers are so bright and colorful that they make the grayest day cheerful.

What a beautiful garden for Payton. Our weather has been so nasty we have yet to plant anything yet, but it is finally warming up. There will be some pink for Payton flowers planted soon for sure.

Oh, that is so cool. Payton's mom is so talented in creating a tiny garden in a teacup.

Haopee, Payton's mom did not create the garden. Our good Furiends Zaoe and Phoebe's talented Mommy Susie created it as part of the table decorations for Zoey's tenth birthday. We fell in love with them and she gave one to us. We declared it a Payton Garden because pink was Payton's fave color.
Love Noodles
