Since most of the plants in our garden are from seed packets, we weren't sure what we had. We THINK this is an Aster. (does anyone out there know for sure?)
The Borage continues to thrive and attract bees.
Here is another little surprise that sprang up. We think this is Red Clover. (Mom will keep the seed packets next year so she knows what she is planting. She planted two packets. One was a "Butterfly Mix" and the other was a "Hummingbird Mix".)
This Poppy was hiding amongst the Cosmos. We just found it today!
You can see why it would be easy to miss the Poppy in all these blooms!
This Larkspur was a surprise too! Mom was pleased to see it. The butterflies like it too.
The smaller Sunflower bloomed this week. It looks completely different than the mighty Sunflowerzilla.
Sunflowerzilla is turning into bird and squirrel food. It still towers over the garden even though it is starting to go to seed.
Thanks for visiting our garden today! We hope you visit all the other Feline Gardeners today too! xoxo, Raymond and Busby

Say hello to RayPod! Or as we like to call him, East Coast Ray. He was one of the cats who my Moms spent time with last week in New York. RayPod has great Frootbats, don't you think?

These are some Verbena that are growing in the window box on the front porch. They were not yet blooming when Mom left on vacation. When she got home, this is what she found! (see the ceramic wormy? Our neighbor made it.)
Sunflowerzilla is going to be an explosion of seeds!
A second sunflower has started coming up BIG. Not nearly as big as Sunflowerzilla, but still a nice sunflower.
The Borage (Thanks Kool Kitty Krew!) also know as a Starflower, is attracting LOT'S of bees! We are always happy to attract bees to the garden.
We'll wrap up today's garden post with a shot of the Lupine! It was yet another plant that bloomed while our Moms were in NYC. Mom didn't even notice it until she was scrubbing out the bird bath. We love Lupine!

1) Our blogging Mom was born in Gary, Indiana. She lived there until 1972 (when she was 13) and then her family moved to a town called Crown Point, Indiana. She has lived in California for 22 years. (she's super old!)

It's Mom and MOCHY! Our Moms both fell a bit in love with Mochy, who is apparently a very sweet little pink Sphinx girl. Towards the end of the trip, our non-blogging Mom even started dressing like Mochy. (in pink!)

Mochy likes to play hard and then she likes to relax somewhere cozy. Even though it is in the 80's here in New York, Mochy likes to be in the blankets.
Mochy has two brothers, RayPod and Mouse and a sister named Coco. More about them later this week.
We miss Raymond and Busby but we hear from Bebe that they are doing great. Have a good Monday friends!

Thanks Boys! I just wanted to introduce Mister Mickey Harris. He is the brother of the grate Jeter Harris hisself and our official greeter last night when we got to Long Island, NY.
We also briefly saw Jeter last night but he was ready for bed and not in the mood to entertain company. Having a great time in NY and ready to have an adventure on Governor's Island today! Thanks for sharing your blog, Raymond and Busby. We miss you boys! xo, Mom

So far the gopher hasn't been able to munch on Sunflowerzilla.
Our Bachelor Buttons finally opened yesterday. We were holding our breath, because the gopher has been eating plants all around them. Maybe the Bachelor Buttons don't taste good?
Our Cosmos are thriving!
