The mighty frootbat
Senses something happening
Thursday, July 29, 2010
The Zinnias continue to bloom too. Mom has cut a couple small bouquets from them. They are attracting lots of butterflies and ladybugs.
GREAT news about Sunflowerzilla! The gopher has not managed to eat it (yet)! It just keeps growing and growing!
AND LOOK! Sunflowerzilla's bud has begun to OPEN! We are SO excited!
Here's a close up of the soon-to-be-flower! Next Thursday we should be posting a photo of a beautiful sunflower!
We'll close with this little bit of happiness, even though the dreaded gopher ate the mystery plant, we have two more in the garden! So we HOPE that they get to bloom so that maybe we can figure out what they are. (with the help of our feline gardener friends, of course!)

Nice tongue action there, Pluma!
WE haven't met Pluma yet. We're curious about the woofies that we see walking past our front window, we're just not sure HOW curious we are.

On the brighter side, Mom went to an arts & crafts fair last weekend and got a few garden adornments. Here's a little tiny birdhouse.
And here is something that is SUPPOSED to be a bird. It looks like a bottle opener to us.
Here are the Zinnias, looking good. Check out our pathetic lemon tree in the background. We aren't getting very much sun lately, maybe that's the problem? It has one lemon on it, about the size of a walnut.
Here's a MYSTERY plant. When Mom planted the seeds she should have kept the package so she would know what she planted. She thought this was going to be a Gerber Daisy, but obviously it isn't. Any of you gardeners know what this is? It has a cluster of little buds on it.
Here's Porcini, recovering from the SQUIRREL incident yesterday!
And here is the BUD on top of Sunflowerzilla. Mom had to hold the camera up over her head to take this photo, because the plant is taller than her.
Thanks for checking out our garden today! Don't forget to visit some of the other feline gardeners on the blogosphere today! Especially the QUEEN of the the feline gardeners, JONESIE ! xoxo, Busby

Huh?! Oh HI friends! I was just having a snooze. Have you ever wondered why we have that weird unusable toe-looking thing? You know, that little extra toe thing? It doesn't even have a claw on it. What the heck is it for?
Speaking of claws, my smashed claw is much better and all healed after the BAG monster incident. My Mom was going to clip my nails last night, but they are all still pretty short. I think I ran them all to the nubbins running from that bag monster!

***urgent edit***Please purr for our friend Mango who had a seizure. Mango is a big Mastiff doggie and any support or advice you could give his Mom is appreciated. We love you Mango Man!
Happy Sunday friends! xoxo, Busby

Here's a close up of one of the Zinnias. They're pretty! We planted them from seed, so we had no idea what colors we would get.
We have some nice Marigolds too. Our garden isn't very organized, we have all different colors together. The bright blue flowers are called Lobelia.
If you look VERY close, you will see a tiny ladybug on one of SUNFLOWERZILLA's leaves. This must be a baby ladybug because it has NO spots. Our Grandmother used to tell our Mom that you could tell how old a ladybug is by counting it's spots.
We're pleased to report that Sunflowerzilla is still growing! The gopher did NOT eat it! It continues to get taller and taller.
