Realizing that July is five minutes away we decided to forego the way we typically plant our flowers - those little six packs of blossoms putting them carefully in soil pot by pot. We made it easier on ourselves by purchasing already well-established flowers in full bloom planted in hanging baskets as well as a large pot of gorgeous blossoms for our front porch.
What does this have to do with "The Meaning of Life" you ask?
This morning as I was grooming the baskets by carefully and gently pulling off the dead blossoms it occurred to me that there is a similarity between a full grown mature pot of flowers and a full grown mature cat or dog.
I love puppies and kittens!

But a passion of mine is finding loving homes for those who are maybe only a year old ~ or four years old ~ or six years old (like my puppies were when I adopted them) ~ or 10 or more! As long as they are healthy they have a right to life! They are full of life and fun and joy and deserve loving homes, too! They are so often overlooked and it is a shame.

These two have brought so much joy to my life.
There's a dog or cat in full bloom out there just waiting for you, too. Go get 'em!
