Thursday in the Garden

 We thinks this picture is beautiful. The Butterflies really like the Butterfly Bush.

 Our watermelons are growing nicely. They came up all by themselves from watermelons we planted last year.

 The tomatoes are not doing so good. We thinks cause it is so hot and dry. A cut worm got one of them and various other pest have gotten into all of them.

 The Purple Lantana is blooming.

 Gardenias smell so good, we just wants to sit by them all day and inhale their fragrance.

 Interesting little weed growing in Mommy's flowerbed. It is blue and fuzzy.

 This strange doggie came to visit Fenris, we hopes he is going home now.

 Our favorite tomato is growing in the compost pile. Nobody takes care of it and it is doing pawsome. It came up all by itself too.
 Look at how nice the tomatoes look on it.

Well we has to get over to Jonesie's for the Society of Feline Gardeners meeting so we can give our report, see you there.
