Thursday Garden Stroll with Raymond and Busby

Hello friends! It's time for our weekly stroll through the garden. Thanks to our friend Jonesie, we are members of the Society of Feline Gardeners. YOU can join too if you go to her page. Alfie Marshall is the VP of the Feline Gardeners, he can help you join too! We've had some HOT weather this week. It was 101 degrees on Tuesday, which set a new record for our town. The little fig on our tree LOVED the heat! It seemed to grow overnight.
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

    Love the flowers, espcially sunflowerzilla. You know that we found tons of borage volunteering in our garden once we found out what it was on your bloggie?

  16. What lovely blooms.

    We thinks the aster may be a zinnia we aren't sure. Thanks for showing us the borage, we have been thinking about getting some. Now that we have seen it we knows we want some for sure.

    Yep, that is red clover. We are pretty good at clover as Grandpa used to plant it for his goats/sheep/honeybees.

  17. Your garden is awesome! Sunflowerzilla cracks us up.



Give us a meow, or a purr or a headbutt. No hisses please!
