Gardening on Thursday

Pop bought some broccoli plants to put in our garden and left them in the bathtub overnight- this is what they looked like the next morning!!!!!  Guess who the nibbler was....Tabitha!  She is not admitting anything at this point ...but we have witnesses!!!

Tabitha looking very guilty.

Our yard is just lovely with color - pink and white azaleas, dogwoods and our irises are coming up. Pop did plant lettuces, herbs and some new broccoli (ahemm...., Tabitha clearing her throat)) plants too. He is putting in potatoes and more veggies later this week.


Lettuces under the cover.

Chives, thyme and broccoli
Hope you enjoyed the garden tour today - we are not officially part of the Thursday Garden Club but will post now and then on how things are going!

Looks like we have been invited to join in on the Thursday Society of Feline Gardeners hosted by Jonsie.  Even tho we can't go outside we can report on the garden thru our windows!!!  Please do visit the other gardens on the main page here.

On another note - we had a scary night again with all the storms that devastated AL and GA passing over us in the early morning hours.  Mom stayed up with us and kept an eye on the TV and computer radar.  Luckily our beloved mountains broke it all up and all we got was thunder and rain.  We are sending our prayers to all who suffered in the tornadoes last night.

When I saw that photo of your yard, I thought for a moment it was a stock photo! It is really lovely, and you are only making it lovelier!

My one recommendation: get some broccoli plants just for Tabitha's enjoyment and not to plant. She seems to like them and should not be deprived just because the human wants some in the garden.

Fantastic job. We were excited to see your chives blooming. Mommy grew some from seeds and we are waiting with paws crossed for it to bloom.

Love the Irises.

Well Tabatha if you are going to eat something, that sure was healthy stuff to eat. That is such a good idea to plant broccoli. Mom needs to do that. She forgot to plant the lettuce this year. We also need to get some more herbs.
Your yard is gorgeous. Glad you made it through the storms in good shape. Take care.

It looks like someone enjoys a little salad :)

Wonderful garden and landscaping. A bit surreal in light of the terrible storms we have been hearing so much about. We're glad you're all staying safe, and that your mountains have protected you.


YOu have a fabulous garden...oh the dogwoods are simply gorgeous one of Mom's favorite trees.

We watched the terrible storms on The Weather Channel last night and felt so bad for all of those harmed by them. Poor AL.

What a beautiful garden you have and such pretty plants and shrubs.
We are relieved to hear you weren't blown away last night. We were so sorry to hear of many people being hurt and their homes and businesses damaged.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Pee Ess...your garden is lovely and it's ok to nibble the vegetables. How else can you guarantee they will be good enough for your parents?
