Here is one of our mystery flowers. Dad had to take a cutting to our nearby garden center so they could tell him what it was. Not even I, Jonesie the MasterGardenCat knew what it was. Not even Cory the MasterGooglerCat could figure it out either. Turns out it is a Lysimachia Puntata.
This teensy flower below is a Scarlet Pimpernel. We had to have help identifying it too!
Cory has been putting her paw down around here, so I'm including her today. While we are at work in the garden, she is making sure all is well in the house. She snoopervises us from the window.
Dad appreciates all I do to keep things in line in the garden. I don't want anyone to think I am taken for granted. I'm richly rewarded with all the belly rubs a garden cat could want. There's nothing quite like a summer roll in the grass while getting your belly rubbed.

Meow! Welcome furriends! I'm taking it easy this week because I've got Figaro trained to help my dad in the garden this week. Do you know how long it has been since I've been able to snooze under the grapes? These are not wine grapes...those plants are still babies. This is our big table grape plant. It's my favorite place to sleep the summer away.
Come on in closer so you can see how wonderful and shady it is on warm summer days.
Before I paw it over to Figaro, below is our squash bed. These are very happy squash plants and they are just starting to get blossoms and form baby squashies. There are butternut and acorn squashes in this garden along with some garlic.
Figaro...over to you now...
I was on important mancat-in-training business in the garden. Dad was weeding and I was drawn to the lawn clippings pile.
Dad stood by as I dug into it...
And then...well, ok...look away girls...a boy's gotta do what a boy's gotta do...
Ok, back to work now...where were we?
