Socks, what should we do today?
Socks said I should show you around the garden so here we go. This is Rosemary.
The Candle Bush
Now I needs some help from my
subjects friends. Mr. Cloud, Mr. Sun and all those pesky bugs and weeds are not minding me at all. They are very naughty. I needs a dungeon to put them in and I suppose I needs some royal guards to round them up and throw them in the dungeon. So does anyone want to volunteer to be at me beck and call help.
Mr. Cloud - guilty of not raining when we need it and of raining too much when we don't need rain. The garden would do much better if you would follow my watering instructions.
Mr. Sun - I thinks Fin has mentioned over at Housecat Confidential that you are overdoing it a bit, and I has to agree. It is too hot. You are drying all the water up that the plants need to grow, you sucks it right out of the ground and make it feel like a sauna here. You should stop NOW. You has my permission to work shorter hours. I sincerely hope you follow my guidelines or my royal guards (when I finds some) will throw you in the dungeon they are building.
Bugs - you are guilty of eating our plants and vegetables. Personally I thinks throwing you in a dungeon is too good for you, so I shall just bite your heads off if you don't stop. Royal guards you may help me chase bugs and bite their heads off. There are so many bugs this year I thinks it might take a huge army of cats to accomplish this, doggies you may help if you would like.
Weeds - stop growing, Mommy is exhausted from pulling you up and we are tired of her not having as much time to spend pampering us. I shall send the royal guards ( WHERE ARE MY VOLUNTEERS) after you immediately.
(Alasandra) Funny Artemisia seems to be getting about as much help weeding as I do.
