Thursday in the Garden

 Some of the Zinnias are still looking good and some are coming up from seeds from the first crop.

 The Blue Daze is dazzling.

 The Butterflies are fluttering around.

 The Candlebush is breathtaking. It gives our yard a nice tropical feel.


The Charybdis Bed after Mommy cut down all the Zinnias. It looks much better now and the Pineapple Sage should be blooming any day now.

Mommy is working on the big flower bed. All the Verbena died in it. The Texas Star Hibiscus never came up and the Chinese Hibiscus isn't doing very well in there. Right now Mommy is working on getting all the weeds out. There were HUGE Fire Ant beds in there so she had to put ant poison out and wait for the ants to die before she could finish it up. (Sigh) it is taking her a very long time to finish tidying it up. We may try to get some more plants for it. I am going to snoopervise from the shade.

Scylla, Socks & Fenris are on their way to the Society of Feline Gardeners meeting at Jonesie's. They will give the report on our garden and let me know what is going on in everyone else's. I really wanted to go but (sigh) someone had to stay here and make sure Mommy didn't slack off.

    Glad Mom waited for the fire ants to be gone - they are nasty biters.

    The garden is awesome.
