That is the most adorable video ever!
So touching.
I called the whole family over to watch.
Sierra looks so sad when all the bubbles are gone. Poor pooch.
Just lovely. You made us all smile.

This was such a fun video! After a long day hawking pots and pans I came home, sat down and found this in my reader and it put a big smile on my face and made me forget the day.

Thank you!

That’s so beautiful! Sierra is absolutely adorable. My daughter has Brugmansia and a similar sculpture next to them :) I particularly loved the shot of the sculpture with the bubble in soft focus floating by. Really gorgeous visually and touching.

The bubbles made the film. I enjoyed it and it made my day very tranquil thanks.

Your garden is gorgeous, from the lemon tree to the buddha statue. What a fun-loving dog you have too :).

You guys are soo inspiring!! I wish I could afford my own garden :) Given the circs, I have to be happy with a CSA share, which, while not from my soil is atleast as close as I can get to it :))

I smiled from ear to ear while watching this. Absolutely adorable. It made me want to be a dog. In your garden.

That’s adorable! Looks like quite a bounty! Beet greens are one of my favorite greens and most people just throw them away. Sierra sure is cute. I love those big head dogs, we have a Staffordshire Terrior named Pearl~

It’s great to have a taste of summer while we’re still in winter. Thank you for sharing!

Love this! To-die-for garden and Cute pup too. At 00:35 is a shot of dragon fruit growing. Interesting. Looks like a Christmas cactus! And it’s interesting that our Christmas cactuses get a few very small but similar colored ‘fruits’ in summer. Must be related. Love those fruits. Makes me want to go back to Viet Nam even more.

We’re especially excited about this particular dragonfruit. It’s a rarer variety with a gorgeous purplish-red center and a bit sweeter than usual. Usually needs hand pollinating but half of our flowers had plant sex by themselves. The second set of blooms we helped out and those all set.
We miss Viet Nam too. Rhambutans remind us of our last visit. They were prime when we were there.

Awww, I just love Sierra! Your vids of her always make me happy… and a little sad, since I miss my dog so much since he went to boxer heaven. Your garden is like an oasis – beautiful.

I have 2 labradoodles who would love to join Sierra chasing bubbles through the garden.
Loved your video–so nicely done!

Wow! Dragonfruits! The figs are getting close to ripe here in Brooklyn. Awesome video! You’d think the dog would go after some scrumptious food rather than the soapy bubbles.. haha

awwww the bubble wore Sierra out! :)

Hi, I’ve recently found your blog and it’s truly fantastic! I tried to view the video of Sierra in the garden, but the clip isn’t shown, is it possible to put it back up? Thanks so much!
