tribute plants

Here are some of our recent pictures. Lynettea bought me a special plant as a tribute to the memory of our dear Dawn. Here we all are investigating it. Lynettea says she thinks we like it. Well it is nice to have something different.

When Lynettea's neighbour Deb heard about Dawn's passing to the Rainbow Bridge, she brought in some plants from her beautiful water garden to cheer us up. Here is a picture of some of them. They have crinkly leaves. They float over the pond with their little roots hanging down to tickle our scales.

There are other plants which loll around under the water too and make water thickets for us. We think it is like living in a jungle. But Lynettea says she has left clearings on the surface and space underneath for us to enjoy our 'enriched environment'. So thanks very much to our caring neighbour Deb. 

Our third waterlily for the summer came out and then disappeared again after a couple of days.

Lynettea wanted to put in a picture of Diamond's garden, as she thinks he might like to wander in it if he were here. We hope he has plenty of bushes and catnip plants at the Rainbow Bridge and Dawn has made some friends among the fish there. 

It was hot a few days ago and we had our umbrella roof up again. The blue makes us think of the Ocean Pond, but we don't think travelling there would agree with us at all. Streak says that there might be sharks. So we will just think of the rolling ocean swell and the long currents that sweep from pole to Equator to pole while we surf in the splashings from our Dragon Guardian. 

best wishes to all our friends

I love those frilly little leaves! Of course, I would probably want to eat them.

We posted a comment but it promptly disappeared into the ether region. Did you get it?

Angel MoMo's mom said...

Arghh, obviously our comment didn't get through. We were just saying that we hoped Diamond and MoMo managed to meet up at the Bridge and have fun. Very sorry to hear of Dawn's passing. Charlotte sends purrs to you all.

Your water garden is lovely.

Diamond said...

Sorry you thought your comments were not received, Charlotte. We have moderation on the comments as we don't want to risk getting spam. Lynettea does look at her email often to see if anyone has put comments. Then she puts them on the blog.
Thank you for your purrs and I am swishing my tail for you. Thanks for your condolences for Dawn. I miss Dawn.

Your pond looks very beautiful and tranquil with those pretty plants.

Keisha said...

I like the new plants! They are cute! :)

Of course Diamond is in the garden. His spirit is everywhere especially in the places he loved and with the people he loved. Just as our first fish friend's spirit still inhabits he beloved pond with his fish family. No longer contained, their energy is universal.

Those new plants in tribute of Dawn are so lovely. We are glad you are all enjoying them so much. And Diamond's garden is beautiful. Surely, he has all the bushes and catnip his heart desires at the Bridge. And he and Dawn have the company of all their friends who went there before.

Those new plants make your pond look very nice. We hope you all are enjoying them.

You got some great new plants. I think it's wonderful that you have plants to tickle your scales and open spots and shady spots. Diamond's garden looks great.

Lynettea just deleted two lovely comments instead of posting them. We are trying to think of a suitable punishment for her.

Diamond said...

She says it was an accident and she very humbly apologizes.

Diamond said...

Lynettea found one of the comments she deleted accidentally. The other one is lost forever. Thanks Tillie and Georgia and SORRY from Lynettea

Tillie and Georgia has left a new comment on your post "tribute plants":

Aurora, those were lovely plants Lynettea planted in your pond :) Your neighbour was nice to donate some plants too. We are happy you are enjoying your pond even more!!!
The garden looks really nice and we know Diamond would have loved walking there.
We bet he has gardens at the Bridge too, though not as nice at that one :)
Purrs Tillie and Georgia,
