Thursday Garden Stroll

Hello friends! It's Thursday and that means it's time for a lovely stroll in our garden. Today we are going to see what flowers we have blooming. Ready? Let's stroll!



Mom, there's dust on my face. Can you Photoshop it so I  don't look so raggedy?



Here's our first Sunflower of the season! It's called a "Junior" because it only grows 1-2 feet in height. This one is about a foot tall. It looks taller because of the way Mom took the photo. It's blooming in the window box on our front porch. 
Not nearly as tall as Sunflowerzilla but very pretty!



The "Blue Ensign" Morning Glories are going crazy in our back yard flower bed. They are a mounding variety, so they don't climb all over the place. They are getting a bit bossy though, and Mom is going to thin them out a little so they don't overwhelm the Zinnias. 
You can sure see why they call them "Blue Ensign"! They are REALLY blue!


Here's our first Zinnia of the season. We love Zinnias because they can be brought inside and put in vases. They last a long time in the house. (or until one of us knocks the vase over...)
We love a nice Zinnia!



Here's a volunteer from last year, Blue Borage. Last year we had NO idea what this plant was, but our blog friends told us after they saw a photo. It re-seeded and came back all on it's own this season. We like it because it attracts bees. 
Borage is the bee's knees. 

Thanks for strolling with us today, friends. Don't forget to check out the other Gardening Felines! You just follow the links at the bottom of our friend Jonesie's blog post today. Have a pawsome Thursday friends! xoxo, Raymond

  13. Raymond, The garden looks great. But I really want to empathize with you over the dusty problem! I get dusty all the damn time! Also, I get some eye schmutz. We house panthers have to be constantly vigilant about looking our Mancatly best. The LEAST the Humans can do is help us out a little by Photoshopping the little bits we overlook!

    (The other day Sparkle said her Human vaccuums with Photoshop--ha ha ha. Mine too--it's why our rugs look cleaner than they really are!)
