Hello and welcome to Garden Thursday with Virginger and Glimmer.
Holy Major Renovation!
This is what it looked liked between our yard and next door. Ratty bushes, icky grass, lava rocks covering the ground. Mum has been wanting to get rid of this and just put in plain old grass. Easier to mow than to try to keep the weeds out.
So this neighbor is our good elf guy named Chuck. He will offer to help and do stuff, comes over in the winter with his big snow blowy thing. He has taken limbs off of trees and such too.
Seems his kid, Nick, who looks just like his Dad has a cat that can get rid of this stuff. A BobCat!
Sheesh, look at that cat go!
Gulping and grabbing all of the plants, big bites by big bites and putting them on the trailer.
It was up close and purrsonal, right up to the fence to the back yard.
All gone and mum is working to get the last bits, bobs, rocks and roots out each evening. Then with the neighbors help get some new dirt and work in a swale to carry rain water away from the houses!
Then they went over and ripped out two small tress for the neighbors

Hope you all had an easy and wonderful weekend. We did. Mum was around, so we got our loves during the day. Mum did chores, inside and out. Some major stuff outside, but we will let Virginger and Glimmer fill you in on that on Garden Thursday.
Me, Derby the Sassycat, king of all I see, sitting on the top of the tower. If I sit here, I am at the height of mum's head!
Ducky, pinning her down while she rested from working outside and before she got ready to make dinner. Something delish for all of us!
A funky looking eggy plant with streaks in it, not the typical solid aubergine! Yep, I know big words like that! Mum also tried out grilling zoo-key-knee!
Everything on the hot grill just starting to cook. Oh that piece of beast grilling, that does look nice. We better get some!
All done and on the plate inside, just a purrfect medium rare for all of us.
Both of us being nice and waiting for our bits on the windows ledge by the table. Mum won't give us any if we get our paws on the table while she eats.
Nom, nom, nom!
Ducky nomming his piece away too. Mum gives us a decent size piece but not really big.
Piece number two.
Can I swipe Ducky's second piece? Nope, the runt got to it.
But we both got a third piece. Just delish, mum says it was a good meal, although she wasn't that enthused with the zoo-key-kness.
We are just hanging out today. Mum has runned off to get the inside of her metal monster all clean. Seems the inside is a bit of a salt mine from all of the ick of the winter. Sheesh! What has taken her so long to get this done.
Otherwise we are just going to take it easy. Nap and otherwise, just chill out!
Hello and welcome to Garden Thursday with Virginger and Glimmer.
First, here is the silly bird house that mum bought that looks like a cat's head. See the sticks inside? Yep, someone is calling this home. Last evening while mum mowed the lawn and walked by, a little fevver flew out. Mum thought it was some kind of finch. No cheeping babies yet.
Our roses bloomed but the are so heavy they keep falling over!
Mum got them to stand up, but then she noticed they were down again. She may need to tie them up to something.
Our purrply coneflowers getting ready to bloom in the back yard!
That is all for this week. Love, Virginger and Glimmer.

HiYa Ducky here. Hope everyone had a nice weekend.
We only get to be "in" cats. Rarely are we allowed out, then only in the PTU to go to the stabby place. Although, when Miss Lynn dropped by a few weeks ago, mum did get Derby and take him outside to see Miss Lynn. He got all squirmy, so mum brought him back in. She wanted to take me outside, but I refused to let her pick me up! hehehe, so I didn't go outside.
We did a lot of this over the weekend. Just chilling on the tower, taking turns as to who had the top spot.
Mum did grilled beast both Caturday and Sunday. On Sunday Derby did not come to watch mum eat, but I did.
So I got rewarded with a little bit of grill beast, actually two pieces as mum gave me Derby's too!
nom, nom, nom. Delish!
So where was Derby? Sleeping on the tower! You snooze, you lose!
is no snooze button on a cat who wants breakfast.
Oh yeah, that is why mum puts out crunchies before she goes to sleep. That way we don't wake her up quite so early!
So this is us yesterday evening. Just watching the happenings through the big windows that go to the floor. Sqwerls, chippies, mousies, even a few fevvers have happened right outside. That really gets our attention.
This is a baby robin who was sitting on the outside frame of the big windows that go to the floor. Then flew up to sit on the beast grilling machine.
The he flew to the crabby apple tree and mum went outside to get a close up picture.
Here is the mousie by the leaves, and mum got a closer picture from inside. He was walking all wobbly, so mum thinks it was sick.
Mum even wnet outside and was standing just a few feet from it and it didn't move or run away. She didn't want it to die close to the house, so she scooped it on to a shovel and carried it out by the garden to die in peace.
Mum taking our picture from outside, you can see us and you can see mum too!
We had a quiet and safe rest of the weekend. Mum did go out to do shopping, even bringing foods home for us! That is the most important thing she got. The non-official boomies haven't been too bad. Mum keeps the picture box on, that distracts us, the fans are running and at least on Sunday with windows were closed since the cold air blower thingy was running.
Mum is bummed that she has to head back to day hunting and having to work a whole week! Poor her, she needs to become a cat or a kept woman! HAHAHAHA.
Hey Kitties! Hope you all survived the fourth and the boomies. Except for a little bit of noise from kids setting off stuff, pretty quiet in our neighborhood. They quit early enuf that people can get to bed and sleep.
We all spent the day chillaxing, including mum! The only bizzyness she did was go to the store to buy some more nesting material for the finches. They wiped out her supply in the last week and were looking for more!
We napped, mum caught up on her pile of magazines. Then she grill out and made grill beast and eggplant. Yep, we got some and sorry, no pictures of the grilling!
This was us yesterday, soaking up the sunshines.
But when mum went to eat with Miss Lynn on Thursday and they saw the parade chaos, and later found out that someone had hit three people waiting for the road to get shut down. The people were not in the road the car went up into the grassy median. One kid has a really badly injured leg and still is in the hospital, the other two were treated and released. More reason to stay away!
We even heard lots of sirens last night. Hope no one set something on fire with their fireworks.
