Garden Thursday

IZA:  I love Thursdays!  It is so nice ta wander around the yard findin the good plants ta show pictures of.

I was gonna do it about failures, but I think I will wait til next week.  One of them turned out OK, so mebbe others will by next week.


I had mentioned that The Big Thing loves ta do lazy watering.  The places he needs ta water aren't good for those sprinklers what move back an forth (and I hate them cuz sometimes they sprinkle me by surprize!), so he has ta do it "by hand".  Well, he found a easier way...

He uses this weird-lookin thing!  It makes the water narrow or wide jus like a flashlight does light...
An he sticks it in the spade handle.  When he turns on the water, the nozzle stays there and he uses a timer to keep the water goin for 5 or 10 minutes at his choice.  He has cool waterin gadgets!
At the bottom right, ya see the little lever that makes the water flow weak or strong as he wants.  I tried to control it myself once, but it seems to require thumbs.

An then, we got our "wave petunias".  They aint large and all spread out yet, but they are gettin at it!  They will get about 3' across by Fall, but I wanned ta show them startin...
After all that walking around, I think I'll sit unner some leafs an wait fer something to come by to pounce...

Last, here is a guessin contest!  What IS this?
