Hello there and welcome to Thursday-in-the-garden for all of you members and non-members of SOFG (see here: Society of Feline Gardeners)!!! Before we get started, I want to clear up what is clearly an absolute MYTH: 'Lautrec never does any work'. I DO work and just to prove it I've decided to invite you on one of my garden 'grounds control' rounds. Believe me, this is NOT an easy job. It includes (but is not limited to) checking for 'trooders' (of all kinds), bitey-thingies, snails and slugs and most important of all, doing grass quality-control. These are all tough jobs...you'll see.
Checking for 'critters' that don't belong here (e.g. mice, mice, slugs/snails and grasshoppers...and mice). Because this was such a wet year, we had a ton o' slugs and Mom can't see them all so she needs my keen eyes to find them...especially since they are always somewhere low to the ground and hiding underneath things so they go unseen if I'm not here to point them out.
Grass quality-control....ICK!! IIIIICCCCKK!
This is an AWFUL batch...we gotta send it back ASAP!!
And here I am making sure that no deer are lurking in the edge of the forest. Those deer are tricky dudes...they think because they are bigger than me that I'm gonna get scared by 'em, but I tell you, if I catch sight of one I am gonna go after it like a lion!! ROAR!! I know, you're thinking that deer are so cute...well it isn't so cute when they chew up all Mom's roses, lillies and other flowers and they also like to chew the bark off of certain young trees and bushes...yep!! You can bet that if I ever catch a deer in our garden that I will be on it's back in a flash!! Zowie!!
So there you have it...that is what I do...not so easy is it? I think it's time for a nap...I'm going back to the house now. See you next week in the garden!!
