Gardening Thursday - SOFG

We feline AND canine gardeners (Jonesie the Master Gardener does have Grete, right?) and members of SOFG consider ourselves to be equally responsible for the garden in one way or another...the canines fertilise it (no pictures necessary!)...

...and occastionally do some cleaning (e.g. flower pots)...

...and we felines keep the grass trim...


...and give a certain calming beauty to the whole ensemble.

We all watch over it and admire it and enjoy frolicking and rolling in the deep grass out behind the barn where the squashes are growing...


(check out these wild, giant snake-looking squash that we have)

... just as we enjoy listening to the purring sounds of the bumble bees as they lazily fly from one Japanese Anemone to another and another (we have hundreds of them) or as they crawl around on the dinner plate sized center of the giant sunflowers or as they try to find the secret place to step on to open the snapdragon's mouth or the sweetpea's heart. Gardens are great. Here we are doing our best to help and appreciate ours on these very last days of summer (and oh what a short and rotten summer it was here....grrr.)

You see, even Ellwood is praying that we have just a few more days of warm weather...bless him!

(Cripes...Blogger is playing games with our minds...it won't let us center certain bits of text!! GrrrHiss!)

You have a beautiful garden. Ours is a mess. If only Äiti would enlarge the catio we could take care of it better.
