Garden Thursday

Hello and welcome to Garden Thursday. Spring is inching its way into the landscape. A few nice days, then cool again. Yesterday started out rather cool and damp. So much so mum stayed home from the community garden so her wonky hands wouldn't get all achy.

In the afternoon however it got nice, cleared up, warmed up and got breezy. Mum did come outside to sit with us. She put up the umbrella but it was too windy, so she took it down. She also discovered that she can remove the umbrella top and store it laying down. Then the wind can't get at it and blow everything over.
Since it has been so cool, spring is about two weeks behind here. So the lilacs are just starting to open, the crabby apple tree is blooming and the trumpet vine is showing signs of life.
Plus the bleeding heart is all bloomy, though the wind hit it a bit on Sunday.
Plus mum heard the tornado sirens go off and we weren't having any bad weather. Mum called the village people and they said they test it every Wednesday at 2 PM. It also gets tested on Caturday at noon, which is the only time she normally hears it. Guess the Wednesday one has been going on for a while, but only in the summer. Mum doesn't amember them announcing they would be doing this and she keeps up to date on the local stuff.

Guess that is about it. Have a happy day. Love, Virginger, Glimmer, Trooper and Fleur.


  1. I do like that crabby apple tree when it's in bloom. Makes me wonder why it would be crabby in the first place.

  2. That must have been a worry to hear the tornado sirens go off unexpectedly! The blossom in the garden is pretty.

  3. Garden season sure is getting busy. Dang, those tornado sirens would scare us too!

  4. Hearing a siren out of sequence would make me concerned too! We had them go off over last weekend, when a particular nasty line of storms were barreling down upon us, but thankfully, nothing dangerous happened.

  6. Looks like everything is starting to bloom and that hopefully the colder days start going away. Tornado sirens would scare us too, but glad they are around to warn everybody to get to safety. Thanks for the share. Have a great day.

  7. Our mom would have been wigged with an off time siren too! But it's good to know you all would be warned for real.

    Mom still misses her lilacs. :-(

  8. Glad it's turning nice for you. Mom and dad have semi-reluctantly finally decided to turn on the air conditioner since it's been above 90 out here lately. It's supposed to be a glorious weekend, and I hear them say they'll be spending it at the pool where we live. Dad's on call again, so they can't go far.

  9. your blooms are lovely! Our weather is quite back and forth too


Don't be shy, we loves to hear your meows and mews.
