Garden Tour Thursday

IZA:  Lots to show today, some bad, but mostly good.

TBT found this unusual mum at Walmart.  Top view...
Our cat-level view...
 The volunteer marigolds are growing well...
And these are all volunteers too.
The BEST volunteers!   There are hummingbirds around them all the time.  Except of course when TBT or we are out there close,
The Venus Fly Traps are thriving, with lots of unlucky flies...
 The Autumn Joy Sedum are beginning to color-up.
The little pond is looking very good.  I told TBT to clean it in Spring and he did.  There are frogs and goldfish in there.
The a\Asters are blooming, but with all the rain, they are floppy.  TBT will put a a string between poles to lift them.
The butterfly meadow just utterly failed.  We pulled the dead plants out, but vines are growing.  TBT will have to pull them out.  My paws aren't strong enough.
The meadow flowerbed isn't looking good either.  But I think we can overseed in late Winter and try again.
The Mums in the garden beds are doing well.  
 There are red and yelow ones too.  They need a sunnier spot for next year.  I'll let TBT know where that is is by resting in the sunniest spots this week.

Now, lets all go sit in the enclosed garden area.  TBT has left the door open for us.

Toaday, we are having treats.  We have 6 different packets of them and TBT has brought out pates of them, some just one kind and some plates mixed all up.  So we can choose.

We love your garden tours. But it makes Us sad We don't have a garden. We must remind Mummy that the window-boxes are in sad need of replenishment...
Purrs to you all - including TBT...

Pee Ess. Mummy says to tell you that captcha thingy you have to prove We aren't robots is driving her crazy. When using a mobile phone to log in, it's almost impossible to see the pics clearly. Even if she biggafies....

All these pretty blooms... and all my human cares about are the Venus fly traps!

Everything still looks so pretty!

Oh You all have a wonderful garden! Mom is too wishy washy to put in the sweat equity and there is plenty of that to get the great results that you do. XXX

I always enjoy seeing your garden. I'm sorry that the meadows didn't work out too well.

What a pawsome garden tour! Mums do need lots of sun. Too bad the vines (bindweed?) took over the meadow garden. I never seem to get rid of the weeds, but I sure make their lives miserable!

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

That red mum is beautiful. A big ball of colour! We get bindweed in the fields and it spreads like crazy.

Excellent tour. Those mums are very cool looking.

Nice to see your flowers, fall can still be pretty with flowers.

Oh! Those red mums are just glorious! Of course, nowhere near as glorious as *YOU*, Iza-Lambie. You have mighty paws but I am glad you will let the TBT take care of those pesky vine-things. You would not want to break a nail ;-) XOXOXO
