Society of Feline Gardeners-Thursday In The Garden With Jonesie


::3 paw taps::

I just loved Ellie's Meezer Colors post yesterday.  She chose green as her color.  I agree that green is the best color of all.

Green is the color of the grass under my paws as I patrol the yard and make sure everything is in order.  Since all the vegetable planting is done, this past week was spent making sure everything is watered and weeded.

Grete did her part keeping dad company while he weeded the big weed patch.  My advice...never plant comfrey in your garden unless you want it to try and take over the world.  Trust me.
Since Grete had dad well under control, I took a few moments to enjoy the rare sunbeams.  Yes, even a garden cat must take time out for herself...air out her belly furs and enjoy the smell of spring grass.

Sometimes when I come out of my snoozie break I forget to put my tongue back in my mouth.  It happens to all of us I'm sure.
The poppies are popping and now we have both the peach ones and the red ones.
Figaro took a moment to share gardening tips with our neighbor cat, Remington.  It helps to get a different purrspective.

Hope you are enjoying your gardens.  Please leave a link!

Cat said...

You are such excellent gardeners!! And you even help out your neighbors! Those poppies look yummy...too bad you can't eat them! What is comfrey?? We say don't plant burrago (bourash?) unless you want it FOREVER!! Purrs to all, LoTiEl (Lolo, Tiny & Ellwood)

Fuzzy Tales said...

Good for you for getting your veggies planted! No doubt that was due to your insistence and snoopervision. No wonder you needed a bit of a break.

We had to Google comfrey...It looks pretty enough! :-P

SuziQCat said...

Jonesie you are looking great over there...don't worry about the tongue thing...it happens to us all!

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Bibi-Chan, Vidock said...

Lovely pics of you, Jonesie, and Grete too, of course!

Forever Foster said...

Your poppies are stunning! We have garden envy, yes we do.

Cat said...

Hi Jonesis, you are so organized, your garden looks fantastic and I know it is from all your hard work!!! The tongue thing happens here too - LOL :-)

Ariel said...

Beautiful post thank you for sharing.

Lisa, Jack and Baby said...

We love all that grass! We have a small outdoor yard, but no lawn. How can we roll around in sunbeams without a lawn?

CCL Wendy said...

Well, it certainly seems like you have things "well in paw", Jonesie! It's wonderful that you can take a well-deserved break and enjoy the spring grasses.

As usual, it's a joy to tour your garden along with you.

You're poppies are very purrty and your whole garden is amazing.

Dear Jonesie,

::Looks around:: Some cherry tomatoes developed... black bottoms. Do you know what would cause that?

P.S. Sorry Mom forgot to add your name to our crop watch link, sigh.

We are behind on visiting everyone. Everything looks great. We are going to try to plant some comfrey in a raised bed. Grandpa has some he grows for his goats and we thinks it is pretty. His doesn't do that well, maybe cause it gets so hot here in the summer.

Enjoying the grass is very important.
