Thursday In The Garden With Jonesie

Meow!  It's been very wet and icky this past week and some of our garden beds are getting out of control.  It's up to me to point this out to my dad so he can take care of it.  Good news is, spots like this are nice for a nap if they aren't too soggy.
I  snoopervised while dad built this nice place for our bean plants to grow up  nice and strong.  No beans have popped out of the dirt yet, so I'll have to watch closely and meow to them so they come up.
My squashie plants are getting bigger everyday.  The good news is there has been no need to water since Mother Nature's watering can is taking care of it.
Our lupine bloomed.
And the clematis bloomed too!  Mom adores the deep purple flowers.  I think they go well with my fur colors.
Well...since it's soggy, I'm going to spend my time hanging out on the BBQ.   I can mostly stay dry here and still survey my garden and make sure all is under control. 
Hope you are getting nice sunbeams in your garden.  Please leave a link so all the garden cats can gather together!

It has been so nasty! We are glad the Male managed to mow this past weekend in the afternoon! I am looking forward to your big garden.

Lovely lupine and clematis, and the squash looks like it is getting a good start. Wow, the GRASS is flourishing!

Just wait until you get a little sun, Jonesie, and things will pop up like crazy!

BTW, How are things with you and the new compost maker? Still dicey?

MoMo said...

The rain kinda washed out my garden and I am staying indoors most of the time. Come by and see what I have been up to.

Kea said...

The clematis and lupines in our area are in bloom now too, and so lovely!

Jonesie, such an excellent job you are doing in your garden, it looks terrific. And we bet the beans will be up soon, with your special care.

Happy Thursday!

That's a really nice bean trellis you have! And your lupines and clematis are beautiful. Our squashies are growing like crazy and we have one ready to eat. Momma says she's going to invite it to dinner tonight! *giggle*

We hope all the rain stops and you can spend more time out in the garden, Jonesie! But the rain does make the flowers and plants grow....

I have never seen such a deep purple clematis! It's lovely.

I just don't know how you do it...purrfect green paw!

Alasandra said...

We love the purple clematis. Some of our plants died cause we got too much rain. (sigh) One of our squash isn't going to make it. But overall it looks good and we has sunshine right now. Mommy thinks it may rain cause it is windy. ~AFSS

TK and Squashies said...

This a great report Jonesie we is glad everything is coming along so nicely. Your dad sure builds nice bean lines. (I not know what they is really called.)
We hopes things continue in the purrfect way.

Wow, yer Beins are gonna have a LOT of beans ("Beans fer Beins", heh-heh)! We been gettin lots of rain too. The plants love it. Sadly, the grass does too an its getting real tall. The grass cuttin thing is broken an is gone ta the grass machine vet...

Amy and The House of Cats said...

All your plants are doing very well, but we do think you will need to coax those beans out with some meows! We hope you get some more sun there soon!

Fin said...

I love those bean thingys! They should be thrilled.

CCL Wendy said...

Although it can be very wet and soggy for beans and kitties, the rain is very, very good all your plants. As you say, it's nature's watering can, and less work for you and your Dad. It will all pay off in the end, and things are already looking great, Jonesie.
