Garden Tour Thursday

IZA:  Welcome to this weeks Garden Tour.  Marley says he is gonna follow us around, too...
Today there are some new flowers.  There are the first ones from the hummingbird/butterfly/bee garden.
I hope there will be lots more like these...
 They are pretty colorful!
The sunflowers werent part of the seed mix, TBT added those as seedlings a few weeks ago.  They grew fast!
Elsewhere, the Stokes Asters are blooming nicely.  They are really good plants.  They shade out the weeds.
Iffen ya see one of these guys, dont be scared.  They are small an harmless an eat slugs.
In fact, they flee from us.  This one fled into a hole in the ground.  Do you see a hole?  Neither did I.  TBT even pulled up the grass looking for the hole.  We arent sure quite how it disappeared like that.
Now, since it is kinna dry and hot today, lets have some simple snacks up on the shady deck.  Ayla has chosen kibble-treats, cheese bits, and Meowgaritas with some ice ta play with.

Thanks fer comin along on this weeks tour!

Womancat Wensday

IZA:  I like ta sleep unner the covers at night.  Completely unner the covers.
 In the morning, after TBT gets up, I stick my head out ta decide whether ta get up or not.
I havent heard anny cans opened yet, so I think I'll wait a bit...

Tummy Tuesday

MARLEY:  TBT has been totally slacking with the camera the past few days, so he asked me to pick a few from past.  So today is TTTT (Tummy Tuesday Throwback Tuesday). 

I love my white tummy.
The curly paws are allus a winner.
But sometimes I just have ta get up...
Ta show off my best "winsome" look.  Is it dinnertime yet?

Box Day

Happy Box Day!  This year it is "Forward, Into The Past"!

Our special Box Day box...  TBT made it for us just for this special day (some years ago).

We all enjoyed it in years past.
Though Iza loves her "Twisted" box a lot.  She hasnt caught on to the joke yet...
We like the Special one.
Iza loves anny box.
Ayla is cautious around boxes.  Mebbe that's cuz Iza hides in them and ambush-whacks...

And, in honor of Box Day, we just have to repeat this from a couple days ago...

Father's Day

The Mews:

TBT says he doesnt really think of hisself as our "Dad".  He says we are all equal members of the house.  He says he just happens ta be the one of us who keeps things organized, makes sure the house werks, feeds us, keeps things clean, watches over us outside, takes us to the Dr when we have problems, entertains us, stops our little hissy-fusses, etc.

And he is right, that is both Mom AND Dad stuff.  But he is a guy Bein, so we think of him as "Dad".  And he cant change what WE think!

So Happy Father's Day TBT!
So we are gonna try ta be extra good today and no cause anny troubles. 

And a Happy Father's Day to all you Human and Cat Dad's out there!

It must be unusual, odd, and surprising...

Wipe Your Paws

IZA:  The deck doormat says "Wipe Your Paws".  We are good kitties, so we almost always claw the mat well before we come inside...

Garden Tour Thursday

IZA:  Well, I'm glad ta be back in command of the Tour! 

Before we start, look out beyond the deck.  There is a bunny out there.  Ya can stalk it iffen ya want, but ya wont catch it.  
Now, before we leave the deck, I have something weerd for ya.  Celery.  
But that's just ta get to the REALLY weerd thing...  
Venus Fly Traps.  Seriously, this PLANT eats BUGS!  Dont get too close...  It might grab a nosie.

This started blooming in our meadow bed.  Some kinna Blanket Flower?
 The Purple Rain Salvia is blooming.  There are fewer each year.  They look kinna hyancinthish.
The Stella D' Oros are doing great.  Been here longer than me and going strong.
The red Astilbes are blooming.  And they are getting the right light/shade cuz they seem very happy.  The flowers will get bigger and redder soon...
Here we have the first Purple Coneflower blooming.  There will be many more.  They are nearly 15 years old now.  
The Daylilies are new, sort of.  They were in various places a few years ago when TBT had a ridge scraped level and saved them.  Then they were in pots he ignored for a year, then planted.  And they are all happily blooming now.  They are tough plants!  There will be other colors later, we hope.
And last, I GOTTA show you the tadpole pond!  They are so neat.  TBT says they will become frogs or toads...   Frogs are yummy; toads not so much.

Thanks fer coming on our Garden Tour this week.  Lets sit in the shade on the deck and watch the birds, skwerls, etc.  And OOH, that rabbit is back.

Fer snacks today, we have some canned sardines, some canned duck, and bacon treats.  We will wash those down with Meowgaritas!  And sit in the shade and gossip about our friends who arent here today.  MOL!  Saying NICE things, of course.

Womancat Wensday

IZA:  It is hot today (and yesserday), but Ayla and I are spending a lot of it outside.  We will get tired of HOT in a month, but not yet.  At least the plants and soil are still "fresh".

The flowers look in good shape...
So do the garden paths...
Ayla is checking from above...
This red plastic is funny ta walk on...
 So I'll go back to the path.

Confusing Convenience

IZA:  I like ta "go" outside.  It feels natural.  I prefer leaves and mulchy type stuff.  But there were these pieces of cardboard TBT set out, and they were the right size as the inside litter boxes, so I thought it was a new thing...
 Im willing ta try new things.  And it seemed ta werk OK.
I may have misunderstood though...
I found out later that TBT had set out pieces of cardboard ta mark the spots where the tulips were planted so he wouldnt disturb them with other plants. 

I think I wont tell him what I thought they were...
