Society of Feline Gardeners- Thursday in the Garden with Jonesie



::Meowwww::

Welcome back my furriends!  It's still not great weather here in my neck of the woods.  No great photos of my shivvering in my paws as I stomp around in the cold rain and mud. It's not cold enough to snow when it rains and when it's cold enough to snow it's dry.  

So that got me thinking.  Maybe I need to think about this past summer when I was out on my deck on my garden chair.

purrrrrrrrrrrr

And then I got to thinking about my furriends on the other side of the world...where it's summer.  Fui, Suey, Lishy, Mr. Puddy, Teddy...all of them enjoying nice warm summer weather. 

My mom and dad got to visit Melbourne Australia last November.  I pawed through their photos and found lots of gardens!  I can't believe I didn't get to go with them.  I would have LOVED it!

This garden was in St. Kilda, near an amusement park and the beach. 

It was not what they planned on seeing but mom made sure to take photos since she knew I'd want to see it.

I love all the fun garden structures.  I'm hoping that dad will build me something like this.

What mom and dad really wanted to see was this....

Well, at least mom did.  Can you believe they did not ride the roller coaster?

They are no fun at all.

They did go visit a HUGE amazing garden and I'll show those photos to you in the coming weeks.

I don't blame your humans for not riding the roller coaster - I don't think I would have liked it either! The car is bad enough.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Wow. My human totally would have gone. She's weird. But I would like to see the gardens.

Luna Park !!!! That was my human sis's favourite place when she was little : )
And not far from there, it's the place dad and mom met....OMC !
I didn't know your mom has been here, and I'm so glad your mom love it.

They should be fired for not taking you to those gardens! All you had to do was teleport to them and all would have wsorked out!

Eric and Flynn said...

Eeek! You mean people have to walk into the big scary clown's mouth to go on the roller coaster? We wouldn't have done that either, (nor our mum).
The gardens are lovely.

Derby, Ducky said...

Yeah, in winter it is nice to look back at summer. What we can look forward to in a few months.

The Island Cats said...

It's 15 degress here...we wish we were in that garden right now!

The Island Cats said...

We meant 15 DEGREES!! The mom needs to take a typing refresher class.

Cat Street Boyz said...

Our Mom and Dad have started planning what plants they will add to the gardens. They are looking at garden catalogs......Mom wants flowers, Dad wants food=^Y^=

meowmeowmans said...

Ooh, yeah. We'd like to be in that garden right now, too! 18 degrees ... brrr!

Janet Blue said...

Thanks for the lovely garden photos. Our mom would love to have some of the sculptures in our garden. We can't believe that you have nine kitties in your family and doggies too. We are a family of eight with nine kitty angels and two doggie angels (way before our time). We are subscribing to you site and we hope you will come visit us. Purrs and hugs, the kitties at www.thecatonmyhead.com, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

My mum is still bummed that she didn't get to meet up with your folks when they visited.

Was it the Botanical Gardens they saw? They are beautiful.

Brian said...

My Dad would have gone on that roller thingy too!!!

Grrreta said...

That garden is lovely, but I bet they don't have a catnip forest nearly as impressive as yours. I do think an entrance like the one to Luna Park might make a pretty cool gate for your backyard garden.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Hi sweet friends! Sorry it's been so long--Darling Cory, it was LOVELY to see you XOXOXO

Fenris and Family said...

That looks like a really cool place your parents got to visit.
