Planting Jonquil's with Jonquil

I don't know if I have ever mentioned the meaning of Jonquil's name before. Just in case I haven't, Jonquil is a type of flower that is related to a daffodil from the Narcissus family, (correct me if I am wrong) usually yellow in color, sometimes white. While my search for the actual Jonquil was unsuccessful or my understanding is not correct, I did find some yellow Narcissus flowers. I am no expert in planting bulbs but I thought I would try to grow them in a pot. Also, I planted them a few weeks back. But, I am hopeful that they will bloom come spring time.

Hopefully they will continue to bloom after Jonquil's departure from us and I can enjoy them in her memory for years to come.

We set out to do a photo shoot..... It was unsuccessful. Most of my shots came out blurry but here are the best of the bunch. I will update you with some photos of the flowers in bloom.

Scratch that

I received an email about two days ago. It wasn't the best email I have ever opened but I can't complain. It was just saying that Halette will not be graduating this weekend after all. All I know is she was placed back into training. This had me worried for a moment but then I remembered that my 3rd pup, Egypt was placed with someone and suddenly her handler had a personal matter arise in the middle of training. Egypt was placed back into training and it was a good thing because she was later matched to the perfect person for her. I am supposed to hear soon a little more on the matter so I will update when I get some news.

Update on Halette

I got a call yesterday updating me on Halette. Looks like I will be seeing her again soon. Halette has been matched with her new handler and is graduating on the 18! It sure has been a long time coming and it will be nice to see her again.
