Thursday in the Garden

Yin here to take you on our garden memories, these pictures were taken back in April. I helped Mommy get the plants out of the Greenhouse. Riding in the wagon is enjoyable and you can keep an eye on things.

Some of you asked if Mommy ever plants catnip in the herb bed. She does occasionally but Scylla eats it to the ground and rips it up once she finds it. The rest of us have enough sense to just nibble on it so it can survive, but not Scylla...so mostly no nip.

My two favorite succulents is the Mother of Millions, which has reseeded itself in practically every pot and the Desert rose that was starting to bloom in this picture. The yellow thing was nice too, but the too much rain killed it.

A lot of our succulents had a hard time with all the rain we got.

This is probably one of the best pictures of them, before some of them drowned.

The Mother of Millions blooms in the Winter/Early Spring so it is a nice plant to have.

Nice shot of the entire Flower box.

The Amaryllis starting to bloom.

And then blooming.

The rose that smells good. Right now you can't even see the bush the bed it is in has been taken over by Goldenrod and maybe Blue Sage.

Cape Honeysuckle.

Roses on the roof of the Hummingbird Cottage.

Our Whirling Butterflies

I had to ask Mommy about this picture as it wasn't taken at our house. When Mommy and Daddy went kayaking at Parker Lake they saw these wildflowers on the side of the road.

And Mommy snapped their picture. ~Yin, reporting for ATCAD

That's sad that some of your succulents drowned. That doesn't happen here! But sometimes it gets too dry even for them.

My goodness, we have four Mother of Millions that just came up near our front door and the red flowers are amazing during the blooming season! I never knew its name, thank you. And they proliferate fast...I'm giving some to a neighbour as they get TALL.
Love, Loulou

We bet the hummingbirds love that mother of millions plant. It's too bad some of your flowers drowned from too much rain.

That yellow thing that drown is so cool. Do you know what it is? We always enjoy your garden tours; though, we do like to see a cat or two. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

Heh, heh...your mom should grow catnip in a wire cage :)

Some great plants there to run around and play in! I love playing in the garden and it looks like you've got a beautiful area!!
Lots of licks, your new friend Morrie :)

We have no clue what the yellow thing is other than a succulent or cactus we got it at Lowe's.

We have a feeling Scylla would destroy the cage.

A friend told me to beware of planting catnip in our garden, since every cat in the neighborhood will want to enjoy it...which would make all of our cats a bit nervous.

Too bad you lost some of your pretty plants. Around here right now we do not have enough rain...what a topsy turvy weather pattern we are having.
