Society of Feline Gardeners- Thursday in the Garden with Jonesie

 
::Meowwww::
 
Hi there furriends!  The sun has finally come back to my garden.  We had a bit of wild and crazy weather this weekend and earlier in the week, with big rain...hail...thunderboomies.  It's enough to keep a garden cat inside.
 
But on Wednesday the sunshine and warmth came back.

 
I had to make sure all my plants are doing well.   Some of the seedlings are looking a little sad, but I have high hopes that they will end up ok.

 
The basil has doubled in size since we planted it.

 
I'm not a huge fan of nibbling on basil, but mom and dad were very thoughtful and left me my very own nip plant in the basil bed.   Sometimes Figaro rolls on it and I get mad, but I do get to spend quality time with it.

 
Yeah, this is my "go away Figaro" look.

 
After my workday was done, mom asked me to subject myself to a photoshoot.  How could I say no?
 
I'm purring that all of you have a special nip plant in your garden...just for you!

Ah it is good to see you. We only had rain so not too much wild weather here. No basil here either but there is plenty of thyme!

We have a lovely, very large potted nip plant on our catio. Mauricio and Lisbeth tried to crush it today by crawling all over and in the pot. We don't know what they were thinking. Enjoy yours. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Our weather people have promised us that we are in for a stretch of sunny weather, so we are looking forward to run time, in lieu of garden time!

Looking great, Jonesie!

Purrs,
The Chans

We DO have a nip plant, too! We had incredible winds the last few days...must've been the fringes of your weather system.

Your garden is lovely! It's so lush, green, and neat. You definitely deserve a nip break (or ten) as a reward for all your hard work.

We do have some nip in our garden and it's doing well, but we have had major problems with the asparagus this year - it's all dried up and dead. I am a bit shocked as I even avoided this area when I was doing my "you know whats" - definitely not my fault. FAZ

A nip plant all to yourself Jonesie, you are a very lucky kitty!!!

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

WOW! Your Basil has done well ~ sadly ours went to the Bridge. I blame Milo ~ he was meant to be my assistant and look after it.

Love Alfie xx
