I bet you thought that I had forgotten about all of you, loyal members of the Society of Feline Gardeners. I apologize for my lack of posting. I'd like to blame my
secretary mom but I have to admit I've been slacking a bit myself.
It's been raining and damp, and as I get older, I'm more likely to hit up the fleece blankets indoors vs. brave the mud.
My furs get a little wild too in the damp air.
As you can see, my Rhododendrons are blooming.
Figgy and I are getting impatient because the garden beds are still empty. Mom and dad say it's because the seeds will rot if we plant them...or they might even wash away. Mom promises no matter what, we will plant no later than Memorial Day weekend. This makes me purrrr.
In the meantime, I can snoopervise the perennials that are already here. The chives are blooming and looking pretty. I don't eat them but mom does. We lost a few plants over the winter. All of our artichoke plants did not make it through the hard freeze. We also lost our olive tree.
Our red climbing rose super fragrant. They drop down low enough that mom and dad can smell them easily. If I'm close by, I get picked up for a sniff too!
