Cold weather = Dead trees and plants...

I went out for my walkie this afternoon and I saw what the cold weather made to the trees and plants in our neighborhood...



A bulb plant??
Now I know where the bulbs come from!

Almost all the trees look soooo dead...

I guess this is a "hug yourself tree"....

This plant.... almost dead too....

Back to home!

*******************

Since my surgery I did not want to play a lot or to be very active. My walkies were very short and I just wanted to have my dinner and then go to sleep.
My walkie today was longer than the last few days.
I am the one who decides which way we should go and how long I want to walk.

Today we were out for about an hour and when we came back, I had my dinner and after that I wanted to play with my mom. And she was very happy for that!

And right now, she is typing my post with one hand and throwing the ball for me with the other one!


Have a good night

That bulb plant is very interesting - you made a big funny, Lorenza:)

We think there will be a lot of trees and shrubs with problems with the severe winter so many had this year.

How wonderful to hear that you are feeling so good - have lots of fun playing with Mom.

Oh, that's good news. About you taking a long walk and playing, not about the dead trees and plants. Keep feeling better, Lorenza.

Lorenza,

We have weather just like you! Everything is gross and brown now. We hardly ever get any of that white fluffy snow! But give it a few weeks and everything will be green and blooming beautifully! Glad to hear you are feeling better after your splurgery!

Glad to hear you're feeling better and playing with your mom!

Oh good Lorenza, glad you hear that you are slowly getting back to normal and wanting to play a little bit. That darn surgery takes some time to get over. Take care and have a fun day.

Even with the dead plants we think it looks very beautiful where you live. But we do hope your plants perk up soon! We saw some of our tulips peaking out from under the snow yesterday so spring can't be that far away!

Spring is back we see. Excellent! Keep safe please, Lorenza. We hear your area is a bit dangerous at the moment.

Au is eating 3 times as much as he was on Monday. This FIV miracle drug he's testing seems to be working. We're over the moon!

sprinkles said...

Sorry I haven't been by in awhile, I've been so busy with school lately. It's hard to keep up with everything sometimes.

I used to let my dogs choose the way to go but now we walk on a path and there's only one way to go.

"ME N MY MILLION DOLLAR" said...

Opps, Mommy said she have to comment again:
Mommy said I must have longer walkie so that I m able to come home if I wander too far aways, but I promise never to go anywhere without her.

Ludo van Doggy said...

You is so very well pampered, choosing your own walks! You so deserve it though.
Poor plants, they did not like the cold huh?

Hi Lorenza - it's great to hear that you're feeling more active & energetic now! Wow - one hour walk! I would have been comatose after that, not asking for a play! :-)

By the way, I LOVE the dress/coat you were wearing - Hsin-Yi too. She said she would like a dress herself in that same fabric!

Slobbers,
