“Hi this is Benji and Ms. Zulu. We were asked by Resa to host the vegetable garden mural for Kid’s Month.”
“This is quite an honor and we are happy to assist. Of course we are hoping to get a tasty snack for our modeling work.”
“As you can see, I used to be very small.”
“Humans are omnivores and need to eat lots of veggies and fruit.”
“Dogs are canines and we love veggies and fruit, just be sure not to feed us the wrong kinds, see Vegetables & Fruits Dogs Can & Can’t Eat”
“After eating lots of healthy dog food, I got as strong as a lion.”
“Ms. Zulu is already 11.5 years old and has helped put in many vegetable gardens.”
“She taught me that you need to dig a whole lot if you want to plant vegetables and fruit trees in your garden.”
“I like to help her with it. It’s hard work but we don’t mind because the fruit of this kind of labor is sweet.”
“I love to sniff the plants and trees in the garden; they all have a different scent. I often see bees, butterflies, and even hummingbirds on the flowers.”
“I recently learned that these are important pollinators. Without them we would not be able to grow most fruit and vegetables.”
“Pesticides kill pollinators and are bad for us too; that’s why we don’t use pesticides in our backyard. Better be safe than sorry.”
“Here we are in front of a banana tree, showing the fruit as well as carrots. There are lots of vitamins in the bananas and carrots. The good news is that these are so tasty that we enjoy eating healthy in between meals.”
“So let’s dig and plant some fruits and veggies!”
❤ ⭐ ❤
⭐ THANK YOU Benji & Ms. Zulu ⭐
The garden is so happy that you came to host, that the Onion, Potato and Robin have formed a band and are writing a song for you.
The onion is the percussionist, and the potato plays guitar.
Of course the Robin is the singer!

“Of course, the garden needs water, just like you and me.”
“Ms. Zulu and I love to help with this task and always want first dibs. The water from the hose is sooo refreshing, it’s hard to resist.”
I want to remind everyone to check up on vegetables that dogs can and can’t eat. Just click on the pick below to read all about it.

Thanks. I learned a lot from Ms. Zulu. High fives and pawkisses, Benji.
Nothing like the perspective of a canine dietician.
Yes, and Benji and Ms. Zulu are number one in their field! 😀 😀
Yeah, we like to hang out in the kitchen so we have learned a thing or two about food. Benji and Ms. Zulu.
Such a lovely and beautiful post my friend. Great!!!!!… Love and best wishes. Have a great weekend ⭐
Thanks, hugs from the ZAB team and wishing you a great weekend too.
Yeah, have a great Sunday!!! It was lots and lots of fun working with the ZAB team!!! ⭐
Wow! i sure missed a lot of comments! I had to change the blog theme here on GLaM, and on Art Gowns, as the themes I was using were retired. This has caused me to use much time to reconfigure certain things… like widgets. Then my niece came for a visit. She’s 21 years old. She’s not a model, but modeled Artemis by Moonlight. I can hardly wait for you t see it! Then I went to a Street Art event for 4 days. xoxo (I’m a bit tired!)
The new layout stands out!!!!… Good change, looks great dear Resa. Oh… so a Street Art Event which lasted 4 days. Wow, it should have been amazing… I am guessing that you will post something about that experience. Excellent to learn about your nice, modelling Artemis… I am looking forward to the pics, my friend. Have a great weekend! xx 😀
OMG!!! The artists were all in the alley behind where I live. I met about 10 of TO’s known Graf Artists. On day 3, I took a gown out there, and one of them painted it for me. I’m so thrilled. It will take some time to organize. I think I will post around mid May. xxx
Wow…. I wish I could have joined you… “This is my idea of fun”, as Lana del Rey would say (although in her case was staying in with his boy, playing videogames! :D… But I love the expression, as I like not conventional things for the weekend, etc… Hugs my lovely! 😀 I´ll stay tuned! ⭐
It will be awhile! Took 300 pics. Need to select & organize. Will send you a sneak! 😀
Love the pic you sent you!. I can not wait for your post(s) 😀 … much love, dear Resa!!! 🙂
Fun and informative! Now that’s what I call a great post. 🙂
And Benji & Ms. Zulu are oh so cute! 🙂
Thanks; we loved to join the series! The ZAB team.
Thank you, Carolyn! It is a great post, and that has a lot to do with team ZAB and all the info they shared with us! 😀 xoxo
It is a great post, and Benji and Ms. Zulu helped to make it so! 😀 xoxo
The dogs are wonderful, of course, but I just love the bees. Such friendly and attractive artwork. Perfect for our blog this month. ❤
Bees are definitely the elixir of life. ❤, the ZAB team.
…and the ZAB team is the bee’s knees! ❤
It is very cute artwork. It is in a high density, older high-rise apartment area, that has seen better days, It really helps brighten the area up for the young kids. 😀 ❤
A wonderful tour of the vegetable garden, done well especially by the dogs!
I whole heartedly agree! Benji & Ms. Zulu were right on top of everything!
We couldn’t have done it without Ms. Resa putting everything together! Ms. Zulu and Benji.

Ohhh I’m smiling ~ Especially at the potato playing the guitar! 🙂 ❤ What a great idea for kids this is!!
We loved listening to the robin too 🙂 ❤
I love the post, and Benji and Ms. Zulu made it extra special! 😀 ❤
(you know I have a soft spot for musicians…. even potatoes)
Congratulations on such a successful collaboration! Your guests are absolutely charming xx
Thanks! xoxo, Ms. Zulu and Benji
Aww, thank you! 😀 There’s nothing like special guest hosts, especially Benji and Ms. Zulu!
What a wonderful post !!
It is also true that you have two extraordinary collaborators, they are two excellent gardeners, very precise with the holes …
I love it, it’s a very fun post and contains interesting information.
Thank you, Belén!
Benji & Ms. Zulu are fabulous, and yes, they dig very good holes. I am very happy that they will be at the wedding of Drake & Sol!
I am now cutting and sewing Sol’s wedding dress. Sol & I are working on the decorations for the event. Drake is picking out the cake.
Sol & I are looking for some bells. Drake is taste testing the various cakes available.
I see that Drake is doing all the hard work, he must remember that to choose the cake is not necessary to eat half, with a slice is enough.
Here the girls are crazy talking about the wedding dress, the fabrics are so, so pretty … they send you hugs, Mar says you’re a wonderful designer !!
Thanks Belén! Resa, Benji and Ms. Zulu are looking forward to the cake. They haven’t gotten a piece of doggie cake since Benji’s first birthday last year November! They even offered to help Drake with the taste testing.
