Society of Feline Gardeners- Thursday in the Garden with Jonesie

Welcome back to my garden!  I've been busy with planting.  We had to wait to plant my basil since it's been cold and raining.  The weather warmed up so I sent my mom and dad to the garden center to get lots!
Did you know that I only send my mom and dad to garden centers that have resident cats?  Yup.  The one we go to has 2 amazingly LARGE kitties who call it home.  There is a reason their plants are always so healthy.  They are purred over 24/7!
I can take it from where they left off. 

Once the basil was safely tucked in the dirt, I had to inspect where dad planted my carrot seeds.  I think they may have washed away in the rain but I haven't given up hope yet.

One of our new artichoke plants is producing it's first baby artichoke.
Cory's toy cherry tree is getting ready to offer us nice ripe treats!

We still have lots of pretty flowers.

The colors are so pretty this time of year.

Mom says I'm pretty too.

Oh wow! Look at that artichoke go! Ours is still very small.

Your garden is gorgeous! Mom is very jealous of that basil.

Pip said...

Beautiful garden, and beautiful Jonesie! I bet those cherries will be a nice treat.
Thanks for the tour!

Your garden has so many wonderful things growing, Jonesie! Your hard work is paying off big time!

You have a cherry tree? Luuuuuuuucky! With all that basil, you are gonna have stacks of pesto. My mum loves that stuff. Me? Not so much. Your mom is right, you are very pretty!

What an amazing job you're doing, Jonesie!

Our cherries are still completely green!

Great activity in your garden. Pretty soon, your humans will be eating artichoke. We imagine that basil smells wonderful when you inspect it.

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

You are very pretty Jonesie, we thinks you are the prettiest thing in your garden.

The nursery where Mommy buys her plants has resident doggies, they do a good job taking care of the plants too. Mommy says there may even be some cats around but she has never seen them.

The Island Cats said...

Wow, your garden is coming along great, Jonesie.

Hey! Our dad-guy doesn't have any resident cats at his garden center...that WAS supposed to be Zoey...but he does have a resident bird...Scarlett, the African Gray Parrot.

Terri said...

You are pretty, Jonesie! Your garden is looking lovely, too :)

Everyone I know has trouble keeping the birds away from their cherry trees. Is that one of your jobs?

meowmeowmans said...

All of your planning and hard work is really evident, Jonesie. Your gardens sure do look beautiful!

CATachresis said...

You are the prettiest flower of all Jonesie - and that's saying something!!! :)

Angel Junior, Orion and Sammy said...

You are very pretty Jonesie. Your Mom needs to take pictures of those garden center cats so we can see them!

You have got your garden looking lovely Jonesie. I have been waiting for my carrots too and think the rain has washed them out. Mum said we will have to plant some more.

Saku said...

You and your garden are both furry gorgeous!

Mom says her basil died. But our catnip is growing up huge, MOL

Oh your garden is gorgeous, how else would it be when so many of you are purring over it.
