The Case of the Missing Tulips

I love to read. The past few years I have really enjoyed reading what they call "cozy" mystery series'. That would be those that have no sex or bad language in them. Of course, they couldn't leave out the murder or they wouldn't be mysteries but there is really no "blood and guts" in them either. They are fun to read and there are loads of them out there. Our local library has a ton of them so I'm fortunate to never be at a loss as to what to read next.

Imagine my surprise to find my own real live mystery here at home. Relax folks, no murder here.....yet!! The tulips have been blooming for a couple of weeks now. I love tulips. We have pink ones and purple ones and yellow ones. Here is a shot of some of the pink and purple tulips. Aren't they pretty?

But wait, what's this?

Here's a picture of this group from last year.

Beautiful yellow tulips. Ok, I ask myself..."What's the deal?"

A ha!! Mystery solved. Our little puppy (yeah, I know, he's not little anymore!!!) is eating the tulips. I certainly hope tulips aren't poisonous. Although, a little stomach ache for his transgression wouldn't hurt my feelings any! Just kidding. I'd have to clean up the results.

No worries! See him spitting out the pretty pink flower. I caught it in mid-air. This puppy is going to be the death of me!! Or maybe another mystery title.....Murder in the Tulips???!!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Quilting!!

Hahaha -- at least you caught him. The rabbits eat my hostas and if I ever catch them.... ;-)

I've heard of dogs eating all sorts of things but never tulips! How funny!

That is funny! Never heard of dogs eating tulips either! This is like a scene from a kids' movie!
