Thursday Garden Report with Raymond

Hello friends! If it's THURSDAY then it must be time for the garden report with me, RAYMOND! It's all ready June and the garden is starting to really come alive, even though we had a late start with it this year. Here are some pretty petunias that we have growing next to our driveway. Mom plants them in the same spot every year and they seem to really like it there.



We have a bird feeder and it has surprised us with a few sunflowers that are popping up all over the garden. There are three or four of them that have suddenly appeared! It's kind of exciting because we don't know what they will look like.
Here's non-blogging Mom's pride and joy, her rhubarb! She started it from tiny shoots and now t is growing bigger each day. Soon she will transplant it into the ground. It takes two years before you can actually eat it. Mom LOVES to eat rhubarb and makes delicious pies and jams with it.



We have a garden pig, a garden frog and some garden quail and here is our garden CAT. As you can see, she is a CALICO girl. (We love Calicos!)



We'll end today's tour with a shot of our marigolds. Not only are they pretty, but they discourage certain garden pests. We never use pesticides in our garden.



Please remember to visit the other Feline Gardeners today! Have a purrific Thursday!




OH! And don't forget that today is the last day to enter our Haiku Contest! The cut off for entries is 8pm Pacific time tonight! xoxo, Raymond

  3. Always nice to see the different flowers popping up in the garden. Yeah, we get surprises too sometimes because plants sneak their little seeds into unexpected spots.
