Garden Tour Thursday

IZA: Welcome to this weeks garden tour!  I have some neat stuff to show ya today.

The pansies are bloomin their pretty little heads off (finally).  But notice the red flowers in the front.  TBT planted the Wave Petunia he dug up last Fall and kept alive unner lights.  So it is happily back outside in REAL sun again.  I am hopin fer great spreadin flowers this season.
The garden path, on the other paw, needs some werk.  I had to HOP over some of the weeds there.
And the path is not the ONLY problem.  See those "strawberry" leafs with the little yeller flowers?  Thats a "mock strawberry" and they are EVERYWHERE.  THEY really gotta go!
Some of the tomaters are happy in their new composty bed.  TBT planted them early cuz its warmer right against the house.
Take a good look up close.  They been inna ground several days and gone through a thunderstorm already an still look good.  That clip helps them stay up while they get used to the new situation.  BTW, the clips are fun ta bat around in the basement.
The evil Lysimachia are growin.  They look BOOTIFUL with the purple leafs an have nice little yeller flowers, but they spread an take over evrywhere.  They are contained with some deep edgin plastic stuff fer now.  TBT says he should pot them up an sell them ta Beins he doesnt like. But actally, he has some plan about where ta put them where they wont be a problem.  More on that in a future tour...
Next to the evil Lysimachia are the Stokes Aster.  They have BOOTIFUL bloo flowers later.  They look really nice by the small pond.  And you can see the Skeeter and LC memorials in the background.  I stop by there often.
The columbines are bloomin too.  Ignore that grassy stuff; I'll remind TBT to weed them out tomorrow.  I know he cant do evrything at once, but I DO have to keep after him on that stuff.
Sorry the ground was a bit damp.  It rained fer 3 days.  But the good news is that we have cool snacks up on the deck.  Ayla looked through the fridge (OK, TBT held her up there while she looked - we have one of those kinds with the coldest part on the bottom, so the GOOD stuff is up a bit higher).  She found HAM!  And pork cubes with FAT on them!  Marley considered that an decided that cool pond water with NIP blended in would be the best drink (well isnt it always?)  The slight fishie taste (from the goldfish) is a good complent to the fresh Nip. 

After the snacks, we can go inside an you can all help us finish shredding the Ess so TBT can re-cover it to go along with the NEW one he has to buy (by populer vote).

Is it a rule that "you know it's time to weed when the cats have to leap from stone to stone"?? hee hee
Love your garden tour Iza, you're a very good guide. And provide great treats too!

WOW! Spring has sprung big time!

Katie Isabella said...

SO glad you are getting a NEW ONE! YOu need a new one. I wonder what TBT will recover the old one with? You guys know?

A cat snoopervisor's work is never done. Mum has a long list of stuff to do as well.

The rain made all the gardens look good. Even ours looks half decent and all the lilies the mom planted last year are growing like crazy. You must be warmer there cause our columbines aren't blooming yet.

Nice tour and thanks for the good eats. So he's going to recover the Ess AND buy you a new one? Well, that'll mean you have you just gotta figure out where to get one you know where TBT keeps his plastic card? Cause I could show you to to get to Just sayin'.

Marley With Answers:

1. Celestial Kitties, yes thats a ROOL!

2. Katie, TBT has some tight pile carpet he bought to cover the back of the noisey machine inna garage. But he got it too small. So He is gonna cut pieces to fit the old Ess AND our PTUs. "Someday"

3. Oui Oui, The peculiarties of the weather mean that we barely get the bemuda highs (no that isnt somethin we smoke) so we get warmer weather than jus north of us.

4. Spitty, we are sad to say that TBT keeps a big woodworking clamp on his wallet so we cant get at his plastic card. Otherwise, we would have a dozen Esses, some hammicks, and live dead shrimp here evryday. An a Bein to only wave Nekko flies at us all day. An some stuff we havent thought of yet.

Oh what a wonderful garden. Gemini is hoping we get one soon--perhaps in a couple of more weeks and then she can garden too!
