Garden Thursday

Hello and Welcome to Garden Thursday with Virginger, Glimmer and Trooper.

The big time hots are here. Mum was out watering flower pots so the flowers stay nice. Things were so good with enuf rain, but the past few weeks, little bits of rain.
 OK, Glimmer is just one of those cats who prefers to lie down. Oh well, she has such skinny legs, they must get tired.
Mum's new plant for the year, the astilbe, has blossomed. Mum says it is kinda short, but then to bloom in its first year here, that is good.

Yes, mum did wear her shirt to work. Here she was all dressed and ready to go. Mum thought it was fun to wear something different her last day. She said she spent most of the day in meetings, lunching and such. Came home early too! So not much to do on her last day.
 Her co-worker gave her an orchid, she had several cards that were signed by all sorts of people she worked with. One had plastic money in it!
Cake and pizza as they brought in lunch for the gang. Mum checked before she left, wasn't much left and she didn't bring any home. Said the icing was super sweet! For mum to say that it must be as she does have a sweet tooth.
 A couple of balloons, she was thankful they didn't over decorate her cube, then she didn't have to clean it up. She took the picture of the balloons after she got home.
So now it is time for her to get extra sleeps in the AM, so that mancat better not be waking her up too early. At least the noisy box by the bed won't be going off to wake her up to her tunes!

That is all for this week. Love Virginger, Glimmer and Trooper.

It was really nice of your human's coworkers to think of you and send her home with those balloons, Ducky. Enjoy all the extra time you're going to have with your human now!

It looks like they gave her a nice send off. Congrats to your Mom on her retirement.

The orchid is lovely. Your mum will enjoy not hearing the alarm every morning and probably be spending more time in the garden with you ladies as well as extra petting time with Ducky.
