Thursday Garden Report with Raymond

Hey there friends! It's Thursday and that means it's time to take a look at our garden!
I mentioned last week that our yard is VERY small. Luckily for us, we have a rather large porch that faces South. It gets a lot of good sun. This Nasturtium is growing in a pot on our porch.

Here's a Calla Lily that is growing in the little strip of dirt next to our carport. Our neighbor has a lot of Calla Lilies, so some of them have started volunteering in our yard. We like that, FREE plants!

This is our garden frog. He lives in the back yard. He stays VERY still. He keeps the fake quail company.

In front of our house there is a narrow patch of dirt. Mom planted some sweet peas there and they are THRIVING! The purple ones are a variety called Cupani. They smell REALLY good. You have to keep cutting the flowers or else they will go to seed and stop blooming.

Here's a bouquet of sweet peas that Mom cut this morning. Aren't they pretty? We wish you could smell them. Maybe Blogger will have a scratch and sniff option soon. (MOL!)

Don't forget to visit all the other members of the Society of Feline Gardeners who are blogging today!

Have a great Thursday friends! See you in the garden! xoxo, Raymond
