Garden Tour Thursday

AYLA:  Well, there was a bit of a fuss as to who would do the Garden Tour today!  Marley said Iza had been blogging too much the past few days and Iza whapped at Marley saying he couldnt identify a flower iffen it bit his butt!
 
And I was just laying there innocently (heh-heh-heh).  So I (sigh - but clever) suggested I do it today to "keep the peace" (purrfect, this should keep them fussin all day).  OH, youre here!  Oops...  Ahem...  So I was keepin the peace and when Marley and Iza couldnt agree about who would be hostess, Im(reluctantly agreed.  Well, I try to stay in the background.


Sorry for all that, but the garden tour is just the deck today and that is mostly where I stay WHEN I DO go out, so it DOES make sense, ya know...  So let's leave Iza an Marley ta fuss at each other.  Its rare enough and they are evenly matched.

But off we go for the Garden DECK TOUR.  And there is a reason fer that.  First, the planter of Moonbeam Coreopsis is bloomin nicely.  Its doin great this year...
But here comes the BIG surprise of the week!  Look at THESE...

The smelly-good lilies have finally bloomed.
They are much bigger plants AND flowers than the earlier lilies what looked the same, an the smell is ferocious  strong an TBT loves them.
Look closer an ya can see the pretty flowers petals better.
An then closer an those hangy things show up better INSIDE the flowers!
Thats about as close as ya wanna get though.  The fragrance is so intense it can ruin yer mousie-hunting fer a week.  I know from esperience...

TBT says he is gonna get new planters an separate them smelly ones fer next year so they can make more of themselfs and be in special places around the yard fer the smelly-good fragrances.  An he is gonna try to amamber how tall they get so he can support them better.

Now, since I did the tour, and Marley won the whappy fight, IZA has to choose our after-tour treats.  Lets go in an see what she chose...

Nip, Nip, Nip, Water, and more Nip.  Hmmm, She is not very imaginative (no surprize) .  On the other paw, its Fresh NIP!  Lets go at it!  Run inside with me, its too hot outside...
