Thursday in the Garden by Arty Mouse

 I am checking out the plants up close and personal.

 The Lantana is blooming in January, it is very confused. It looks nice against my furs. I made sure the Mom saw it.

 Remember when Daddy was digging in the yard. Well a lot of strange men came with a machine that dug and they put a new septic system in for us. This one sprays water up in the air. We may plant some flowers around them but we would have to find something that likes soggy soil and doesn't mind chlorine.

 Daddy has been putting leaves where the barn used to be. He is getting the soils ready for our new flower bed.

 The Pineapple Sage is blooming in the front flower bed.

 The Forsythia has blooms on it.

 The Curry is doing well in the herb bed.

The Oregano and Fennel are still around too.

OK, it is time to go to Jonesie's so I can make my report to the Society of Feline Gardeners

  8. You might consider these perennials, shrubs and trees: astilbe, cardinal flower, sedge, rose mallow, summersweet, hibiscus, European cranberrybush viburnum, leucothoe, fothergilla, inkberry, sweetspire, sweet and swamp azaleas, white spruce and black gum.
