Puppy & Plants

Happy Friday Saturday everyone! I had a blog post all planned out for today yesterday but I ended up having to spend the morning at the vet with my little bean because he tore another toenail (and then got home too late Friday night to take outdoor photos). Poor Bo!

But not to worry- he is doing well and enjoying his loopy drugs. I feel like the world must be a very fun/baffling place for a little drugged up doggy brain.

So instead of the planned post, I will instead leave you with two pretty awesome plant-related discoveries.

First of all, there was huge news on the grape front yesterday Thursday… one of our grapes turned purple!!! This is the first grape to ever make it to the purple phase. It seems like these bunches may actually become real grapes by fall. Very exciting! Haha and I love that only one has turned purple… it’s much more dramatic that way. He is the champion grape.

Secondly, remember that wild mint that was that was taking over our backyard? I had placed it into a vase of water two weeks ago in the hopes of having greenery in the house for a few days. Well fast forward two weeks and not only is it still living… it has continued growing! See the fresh green at the top? That is new growth! I can’t believe that it is possible to grow mint in a vase. Super cool!

Well it is time for me to go back to being a loving, supportive dog mom so I will bid you adieu. Have a great weekend!

      Yeah the grapes are pretty awesome. I am just so happy they are producing fruit this year :)

    Hope your pup is feeling better! So neat that you grow grapes! And the mint is a great idea! We have some somewhere because I can smell it when I mow the lawn. Does it put off a minty smell in the house?

      Thanks!! I can smell the mint when I disturb the plants… like when I change the water or rearrange them. Otherwise they don’t really have a constant smell.
