Sophie's Garden

Just a few weeks before Sophie died last year, I planted some flowers (gladiolas to be exact).  It was my first go at planting flowers and Sophie sat by my side while planting, so of course, I named it Sophie's garden.  Then sadly she passed away, but I had some beautiful blooms that summer to make me think of her.

Sadly, my Sophie girl has been gone for a year now.  It was a pretty rough day but I did better than expected...probably because I have two goofy bulldogs that cheer me up and I got to celebrate my favorite little buddy's 3rd birthday.  So, I had lots of happiness around me.  And, Sophie's garden started to grow! I was hoping for some blooms to pop that day, but just a few days later I had some:

I doubt if there will be as many blooms this year due to two big bruisers trampling the flowers and attempting to eat them.  I did not appreciate their rudeness, so after a stern talking to I think they got the point to stay out of Sophie's garden.

Its hard to believe its been a year without Sophie already, but its funny how the heart heals.  I have such fond memories of my first bulldog and wish she was still here, but I'm so grateful to be able to Sarge and Stella around now!
