Touch of Green

07 Jan

Touch of Green sign on carI found The Plant Lady’s car at the parking lot of my trails today. Her sign said “ Touch of Green.”

So I started looking around at all the plants on my trails.






Gray and Brown vegetation

Yup, there’s not a lot of green here.

Bongo looking at gray and brown vegetation

Not much green here either. I guess those prickly pear cacti and the juniper trees are kind of green. But look at all that gray and brown stuff.

This tree really needs some more green in it.

I think that plant lady has her work cut out for her. I hope she’s got a lot of energy.

What, person? What are you talking about?

What do you mean, that plant lady does interior plantscaping?

You mean she’s not going to turn my trails green?

Then what’s she doing here? Oh, no. Maybe she’s stealing the little green that there is out here so she can put it inside something.

What, person? You think she’s just here to go for a walk?

You mean she’s not going to make anything green?

Well, in that case…

Bongo watering the plants

I guess I’ve got to take care of it myself.

      Marina, you’d think if they’re going to put a sign on their car they’d stick to business.

    Well, I think you earn a new title by doing this, Bongo: “Bongo’s gardening” 😀

      Angel’s Whisper, I like that title. I’ve been doing more of that. The dirt in my person’s garden area is usually too hard and dry to dig, but since we had a little snow it’s nice and soft now so I’ve been digging in it. Woo woo!

    Way to water that plant, Bongo! I think you should get your very own Touch of Green truck!

    • Bongo

      Remy, that’s a great idea. Then I could go water everyone’s plants.

    You are very helpful, B. Maybe the plant lady will pay you for being her assistant. Side job!!

    Love and licks,

      Cupcake, that would be great if I got paid. I could get more treats.

      Benny & Lily, my trails would probably keep her busy until spring. She wouldn’t have to worry about getting another job all winter.

    Great job Bongo, you can start bringing back all the green on your trails a little at a time. Then all the green will be back 🙂

    • Bongo

      January 7, 2013 at 7:29 pm

      Lexie and Mica, I’ve got to be careful though. I only want the green back. Once those flowers start showing up I have to keep waiting while my person takes pictures.

    Ha-ha! Now that’s a good way to get rid of the green Bongo!

    • Bongo

      January 7, 2013 at 8:58 pm

      Brown Newfies, you mean I caused all the green to go away? I’ve been watering all this stuff for awhile. Oops!

    I think Mother Nature has plans for your trails, so no worries.

    • Bongo

      January 7, 2013 at 8:59 pm

      Patricia, maybe I’ll find Mother Nature’s car parked at the trailhead.

        I think she flies–has her own wings. Just my thought–could be wrong. Let me know if you see her in a car.

    looks like your going to have your work cut out! Make sure you keep up with treats and other food substinance to make sure you does not get too tired out!

    • Bongo

      January 8, 2013 at 7:04 pm

      Dalton, I’ll make sure I take plenty of treat breaks.

    Bongo, if you want something done sometimes it’s better to do it yourself! Good job:-)

    • Bongo

      January 8, 2013 at 7:05 pm

      Thanks Misaki. I’ve been finding that’s true. Doing it yourself is sometimes the best way to go.

    Great work Bongo! Looking after those plants to become green with your help is a good idea! I wish I could help you! Hee hee…… 🙂

    • Bongo

      January 8, 2013 at 7:06 pm

      Kevin, I wish you could help me too. We’d have a great time watering those plants together.

    Bongo you could have “A touch of yellow” stencils on your car.

    • Bongo

      January 8, 2013 at 7:28 pm

      Diane, I have a car? Woo woo! I’m going for a drive.

      • dianeskitchentable

        January 9, 2013 at 8:17 am

        Well you’ve got a license right?

      • Bongo

        January 9, 2013 at 7:53 pm

        License? Umm, yeah. I mean, sure I have a license.

      • dianeskitchentable

        January 10, 2013 at 8:10 am

        Well….wooo hooo, I’ve got a license too & Diane says you can’t drive unless you have a license so we’re good to go! I have a hard time with the stick shift but if you’ve got an automatic kinda car we can take yours…

      • Bongo

        January 10, 2013 at 10:26 am

        Lola, we can take my car. I’m on my way now to pick you up. Woo woo!

    Not a lot of green, but what a view, wow!

    • Bongo

      January 8, 2013 at 7:30 pm

      Dianda, we do have a pretty good view here with lots of red in the distance. I guess if we had more green it would be Christmas every day.
