Garden Thursday

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

Quiet around here, the hots are gone, so mum has been able to open up the windows for fresh air inside the house. Today may be hot, but back to nice weather on Friday.

Flowers are few, but mum did find some hiding by the side of the house near the kitch-hen windows. Siberian Irises.

 Mum got the grass all looking nice on Wednesday, but she really needs to get to some weeds and probably get some mulch to put down in a few places. Now would be a good time to do that while it isn't so hot!

That is all for now, Love, Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.

Tuesday This and That

HiYa, Ducky here. It has been so nice around here. Nice enuf that as soon as mum gets up she opens all of the windows wide open.

I did sit on mum lots and she is feeling better, just needed a day or so of not standing and pounding on her feets.
We got a surprize this morning when mum went to turn on the water and then, NO WATER! Second time in just over two weeks this happened. Mum was not happy as she had to go out so was washing and doing her teeths with bottled water. She did well enuf at the eye doc, she sees OK.

More of the same for tomorrow.

ManCat Monday

An ordinary kitten will ask more questions than any five-year old. - Carl Van Vechten

Ordinary? We cats, and the kittens are not ordinary. Questions, you betcha, we have questions and most times you beans can't answer them.

So mum did her racy weekend and I thinks she overdid it. Remember mum, you are not that young and days of pounding up and down on pavement for three days will get to you. Mum was so bizzy she didn't even take pictures!
 This is an old pic. Mum says this is the top of where they line cars up and way back on the right hand side is a white banner. That is how far back it goes. Mum says about two tenths of a mile. Mum can't count how many times back and forth she went, well, all of her furiends walked.

  So I am sitting by mum, cuz she needs to go to bed and get all rested. I know the calendar is clear for tomorrow, so no getting up early for you then. We both can stay home and chill. You get some good sleeps you will feel all better.

Oh Yeah, it is box day too.

HiYa Ducky here. YAWN, STRETCH. Mum is up way early, something about sprinting. Ha! Mum does not run fast, so it must be racy cars going fast.
Are you sure you don't want to crawl back into bed and have some nice, long cuddles? Just the two of us? Well, three if you can Mr Bear!
Alright, you head off to stand in the sun. I am going to find a nice place to nap.See you this evening.

Happy Weekend.

Garden Thursday

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

The worst of the hots for now is gone, we had some storms but not super bad here. Where Grampie used to live they got bad storms, floods and lots of trees down.
These are two different underpasses, both flooded and the bottom one from the other side had lots of mud as the ground collapsed on that side.
Us, well, the hots and rain are not good for flowers, so most everything is done for now. The roses are looking ok if you aren't looking really close.
 One last really nice pee-o-knee, this one protected by other plants so it lasted longer. Mum had to hold the flower up to get a good pic.
One cheeky chippy, with his spot 13! THE END!
Love, Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.

Tuesday This and That

Quiet day for me, mum has been out and about most of the day. First she was at the library dealing with children and parents for the reading program. Really mum? Little peoples, the noisy kids, you?

Then she was off to see her money man. Seems some changes are happening where this guy operates and actually he is working from a new spot. So mum gets to change up her investments, to hopefully better stuff. More green papers to buy me toys!

So what have I done all day. Nap.

An animal's eyes have the power to speak a great language.  - Martin Buber
 So what am I saying here? "Mum, get that flashy box out of my face!"
 So here are my paws and tail as well, plus a shot of mine backside with tail covering my spot 13.
 Plus mum got a good shot of a dangle, paw and tail.
The hots arrived, mum has the air chiller running, fans running so we are all good. Well mum did sit outside on Caturday evening, said it was nice. Wasn't humid, a good breeze. Sunday night, hot, humid and not much of a breeze. Mum went out and grilled chick-hen, I got some, said it was hot grilling in the hots. Said no more grilling until it cools off a bit.

Have a wonderful week everyone.

HiYa Ducky here. Happy Caturday.

The day has gotten off to a good start, me and mum had a nice cuddle first thing while mum was in the sleepy spot. She is awake but not quite ready to get out of bed. So I join her for a while to get my loves from here.

She then got up and moved to the fevver watching chair and we had a watch of all the fevvers, chippies and sqwerls in the yard. I was watching and mum asked if she could join me, of course I said yes. Then I jumped on her lap for a better view and more loves.
 The hots are supposed to arrive today, me and mum are ready. She got up the fans from the dungeon so help move the air around. She will also turn on the air chiller for the house if needed. 
Yay, have a wonderful weekend all.

Garden Thursday

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

We have lots and lots of flowers! We posted a week ago, and on Friday the pee-o-knees started to open up their blooms!
The plants that get the most sun have the bestest blooms. Plus we have more pink, but this time roses!
Plus the weather has been so nice, warm, bright and sunny. Summer is here!

That is all. Love, Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.

Tuesday This and That

Happy Tuesday, I gots gooshy food and HAM today!
 My gooshy foods were on the little plate the the ham on the big one. The big one was not full of ham, but mum had lots of little pieces left on the plate she gave to me. She however had 10 bags of hammy goodness to go into the freezer!
 Wonderful, delish ham to eat in the future. Ham and eggs, ham salad, ham sammiches, just ham to snack on. HAM, HAM, HAM.
 I then needed a nice nap in the sun. It has been purrfect around here, bright, sunny, warmish without being too warm. Ahhhh. both me and mum are enjoying it.

I would like to see anyone, prophet, king, or God, convince a thousand cats to do the same thing at the same time. - Neil Gaiman

Nope, not us cats, we follow our own paths.

Wonderful weekend here, it has been nice for lots of days. One of the first thing mum does is open windows in the morning and then they stay open until bedtime. The sleepy room window stays open overnight. 
 I am in the front window in the AM, gets lots and lots of sun for the morning. I can watch the other peoples go off to work. I used to have to watch mum leave, not anymore!
 Here is just one petal from our poppy. Sad thing is that these flowers don't last long, but they are purrty.
 Sending out purrs to one of mum's favorite cities, London. Nasty people were at it again over the weekend. Mum had even been wearing this last week and it was fresh out of the dryer on Sunday when mum took this pic.

Everyone have a good week.

HiYa Ducky here. Happy Caturday. We are starting off the day with a few gentle thunderboomer storms. Nothing bad to hid from. Mum just needs to wait until it pass afore she goes takes her shower.

I got all acited the other night and mum caught my tail swishing back and forth, it had been going faster. Why? A baby bird had landed on the top of the stone, just outside my window. Now the window was closed at the time.
 See me inside and after I tried to pounce on him he flew away from the window. The fevver is on the left side of the picture, just under the bottom railing.
 I am stealing this from the girls, I gets to see the outside too and as of this AM we now have three lovely poppy blooms. Here I am watching them.
Here is a nice pic from yesterday of two poppy blooms. Umm, Mum, you gots a dandy lion in there too. MOL.

We hope you have a lovely Caturday and weekend.

Garden Thursday

Hello and Welcome to Garden Thursday with Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur. We are actually getting a few days that are nice and in a row. Warmish and no rain. That means mum can use the monster to cut the grass today.

Most of our spring flowers like the two-lips and such are all gone for the year. So now we wait for the summer flowers to come. While mum was weeding early this week she saw the poppy in the front doing really well. It has 8 flower buds to come! Woohoo. Can't wait to see them. 
 What is most common right now is the ally-ums (allium), little spiky like balls of purple, although we do have a few white ones as well.
 Mum mad sure to hang out our patriotic door wreath. It has lots of jingle balls on it, so when mum opens the door, we hear it. This will stay out until after July 4.
When mum went visiting the other day she said the pee-o-knees were in full bloom there. Just two hours away from us. So ours should be opening up soon. We have lots of flower buds on these guys too.

That is all for this week. See you soon. Love, Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.

Tuesday This and That

HiYa Ducky here. I got left all alone for most of the day. Mum kept saying stuff, but she was upstairs and I was, well, she doesn't know. I had made myself scarce. I guess she said she was leaving and wouldn't be back until evening time.

So where did she go? Down to Illy-noisy to see an old furiend. They were in school way back when, they are now both retired. Plus mum furiend lives in a new place. Mum says it is nice.
 Mum and her furiend Christine. They have known each other for over 40 years! They keep in touch but haven't had much time to actually see each other. Now they have time to do that.
 The view from her house is farming fields, she feels at home, she used to have a small farm in the country. She picked this spot as she is on the end and all her windows face farm fields.
 Mum furiend in the front door. Mum liked the place but said it would be bigger than our house here! It is all new, clean and shiny!
 I was happy mum got home. She sat down and I worked on getting my loves and scritches. Keep up those ear rubs.
