Society of Feline Gardeners- Thursday in the Garden with Jonesie

::Meowwww::

Welcome back to my garden!  Seems we had our 2 days of 90 degree weather and now we're right back down in the 70's.  Sigh.  At least the warmer weather did wonders for my tomatoes!

We had bees buzzing in the buddliea.

Our pears are getting ready to eat.  If mom stops being lazy, perhaps she can dry some or make pear sauce.


My brother Figaro was busy trying to look handsome.  Apparently quite a few of you girl kitties...and mothers too (sheesh!!) want to be his girlfurriend.  Figgy is a bit overwhelmed with all of the attention.

I feel I must let you girls know exactly what you are getting into.  I mean when Figgy says he gets a wee bit dirty...::ahem:: LOOK AT THOSE PAWS!!!!

If you biggify the picture below you can see the garden stuff in his furrs!

I tell you he's a regular Pig Pen!

But he's a love...and I think he wants to be boyfriend girlfriend with everyone!!!

He's only 2...what does he know?   He'll have to figure this out on his own. 

In the meantime he needs to help me in the yard!

The woman is thinking that pear sauce would be really good. I'd rather sit and watch the late summer bees buzz!

Do you know that my human has NEVER seen pears on a tree, only in the market? You TOTALLY have my permission to laugh at her.

Mr Puddy said...

My mom is the same as Sparkle's human, so she have a look with big eyes ( Imagine Chinese eyes try to get big..MOL )

For me, I always get dirty too. but lucky I got lots of black part, I can hind dirty dirt pretty good..tee..heh

Thanks Figaro, You have done a wonderful job : )

:meowww:

Oh my cat! Thse pears look great ~ Jonesie you are an excellent gardener!
I'm embarrassed to say my mom was one of those hoo want soppy over Figgy ~ she just LOVES cats! End of!
It's much cooler here already... so I am envious of your warm temperatures.

Love Alfie xx

MoMo said...

SS love your pears - they look yummy! Me, I am not so interested. My uncle also has pear trees but they don't look as good as yours.

Yes, tell Figaro to work hard in the garden instead of getting distracted by girlcats and their moms.

MoMo said...

Oh, has the password changed to "::meowwww::" from "::3 paw taps::" ?????

We are sooooo behind time.

The Island Cats said...

Heehee! We love Fig's dirty paws!!

It's gotten a lot cooler here...only in the 60s and 50s for tomorrow. Mom's actually talking about cleaning up the garden this weekend!

Brian said...

Everything sure looks great...even the dirty paws!

ArtemisiaFSS said...

Your pears are lovely, Grandma made some pear bread and Mommy thought it was most yummy. So when she saw your lovely pears she got a wee bit envious.

Tell Figgy not to worry, Arty is often very dirty herself as she really gets into helping Mommy weed and she managed to catch lots of boyfriends, (sigh) she too just loves everyone, I mean you should see her with FENRIS. And besides being our brother he is a DOG!!!

Fluffy and Heather said...

The dirtier the paws, the harder the worker, right? :D

By the way, do you kitties go out in the garden when the weather gets cold?

Cheri said...

Great tour! What dirty feet.

You have such a great Garden, Jonesie!

MOL about Figgie's dirts.

CCL Wendy said...

You're just a regular 'au pear' girl, Jonesie! Those pears look delicious!

As does your brother, Figaro. No wonder the ladycats are after him. A real mancat doesn't mind getting his paw dirty!

LP said...

Those pears look delicious! Figgy we think you are a little "sooty" 'cause you work so hard in the garden! Don't let the human tell you differently :p

Mark's Mews said...

My, Figgy DOES get a lot of the garden in his furs, doesnt he? The pears look purrfect (fer the Beins)!

Cat with a Garden said...

Those pears look quite delicious!
Figaro, we both are paws-on type of ladycats and we too get dirty when outside gardening. With Chilli it's easy to shake off dust because she's silky and slender but Siena collects quite the debris. It's a floofy thing we say. You are SO sucessful at looking handsome today!

Junior and Orion said...

Well, at least your tomatoes were helped by the weather!

ABBY said...

OH what a fabulous garden we love it!

Yeah, pears, mum loves pears. But we don't have a tree.

Au and Target said...

Pear sauce with ice-cream...... yum!

That gritty kitty is a pawsome fruit guard.

Your garden looks wonderful! Those pears look delicious. :)

Lovely garden cat day post! We have never had garden dirt on our paws, even though we have a little garden, we don't get to go outside so we sure enjoy seeing your adventures! Yes, handsome Figgy! And tasty looking pears, too!

Glogirly and Katie said...

Glogirly has never seen a pear tree either. But she LOVES to eat them. And never shares. Gee, what a surprise. ; )
