A trip to Mariani Gardens

Posted by Francesca

On Martha's blog today, she is giving her blog readers a tour of a great nursery called Mariani Gardens,  located in Armonk, New York. When she visits there, we often accompany her. We love it because it's so colorful and there's so much great stuff to see.

Franny, don't you think these bromeliad flowers look great with my coloration?

What's that expression?  Let sleeping lions lie?

Good thing this lion is asleep.  He looks ferocious.

Wow - a dog topiary.  This is so cool.  Maybe we should start trimming some of Martha's boxwood to look like Frenchies.

We should carve a statue of our goddess - Martha.

Excuse me - we'll take this Japanese maple to plant in Martha's new maple grove.

  • Good Morning F & S
    So did you buy the Japanese maple? My dad has a beautiful one growing in the front of our house, he calls it his baby. No one is allowed to prune it but him, it's really big and pretty. The leaves will start to turn soon and it looks like a big ball of fire.

    We're all up early today mom just fed us. Why because she is going up to see your Moma's show. Of course I'm not allowed to go - what's up with that???

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    You two had better be careful about trimming on Martha’s shrubbery. If she doesn’t say that’s its alright, she just may start trimming on your tails. Wait, I don’t see any tails on you two to trim. Does this mean that you have been bad already? I hope this isn’t true. Speaking of tails, daddy tells me that he is going to get my tail. When he reaches out for it, I growl and snap at him. It’s just part of the game because I move back where he can reach out again. He only has to touch one of the long hairs on my tail and the game is on. I think that it’s getting close to our walk time now.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hello Ladies,
    What an adventure today. I have never been to a place such as this--but our yard is great big---a third of an acre. We have cottonwood trees over 100 years old. Can you believe it might snow here tonight. Already raining and snowing in our Rocky Mountains. It is always a surprise in Colorado. Have fun on your adventures.
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • It looks like you girls had a great time taming the lion! Looking lovely as always!

  • Bpppupmrrrow. Oops! No, that's Mandy's line...

    Franniehonnie, look at your beautiful little form, standin' up on the edge of that stone bowl. Except for Sharkeybarkey, I'd think there was no finer specimen of your breed around anywhere! And yes, Sharkey - before you even said it, I tho't those bromeliads were a lovely frame around which to photograph you - blonde hair and all! It is v-e-r-y becoming!

    I would like to recommend, girls, that before you trim ANY of mommieMartha's beloved boxwoods, it would be best for you to consult with her first. If you want to be put in the puppiedoggiedoghouse really quickly, just go trying to clip one of those into a-n-y shape other than how she currently maintains it, okay? Puppiedoggies like you two CAN learn new tricks every day! You're extremely helpful, industrious, and resourceful, but sometimes you just have to allow mommieMartha to handle certain tasks, okay?

    My beautiful and spotted Mandy girl sends her love to you and her other new-found friends.

  • Hi Girl Friends, I just love seeing your pictures of your trip to Mariani Gardens. My Mom loved Martha's blog about the trip and I enjoyed seeing it from your point of view. Boy, would I love to be there with you. I went to a cool place like that with my Mom and Uncle but I had to ride in a cart. You look like you had more fun. Love, Dudley Do Right xoxo
