Thursday in the Garden with Arty Mouse

The obligatory glamor shot of my glamorous self.

Mommy got all the dead zinnias out of this bed, she made a bad mistake though she accidentally cut our Goldflame Honeysuckle down. We hopes it will grow back. Mommy is trying to root some of it in the greenhouse. We has our paws crossed that it grows back and that Mommy manages to root it.

The violet is doing good it likes the cold weather and will happily bloom all winter.

This is one of our last zinnias.

The Camillas are doing great. They are evergreens so the frost doesn't bother them.

This picture was taken last week. Mr. Jack Frost visited our garden and killed the Pineapple Sage, but the Rosemary is still  nice and green it will stay green all winter.

Close up of the Camilla bloom.

A wildflower Mommy saw when she was wedding. It has very delicate red flowers.

Lantana. still blooming.

I haven't seen any butterflies after Mr Jack Frost's visit. I thinks they are gone until Spring.

For some reason Mommy doesn't want me in the flowerbed.

I'll show her.

I is a cat I sits where I wants.

OK, I'll get out now.

If you insist I guess I will pose for you.

I agrees I is the prettiest thing in the garden.

I am going over to Jonesie's now to make my gardening report to The Society of Feline Gardeners, won't you join me?
