Thursday Garden Stroll

Hello friends! It's Frootbat Friday but instead of Frootbats we are doing our garden stroll today because we didn't do it yesterday on account it was International Box day. *Whew!* Did you follow all that? 

In fact, we aren't even strolling in our own garden today. Today we are going to stroll in Renee's garden. Yep! There really is a Renee behind Renee's Garden Seeds and she really DOES have a garden! 

This is our friend, Patches. Patches lives at Renee's house and he was VERY interested in seeing if anyone had a treat for him before they stroll in his garden. He got very up close and personal with the camera. 

Check out these gorgeous Dahlias. 

These are some of our favorites, California Poppies. That's our state flower here. Do you know your state's official flower? We personally think it should be catnip. 

There were (of course) very nice vegetables in the garden. These are called "Blush Batavian" lettuce. (and you can buy the seeds at Mom got to bring home a few of these and reported that they made very yummy salads.

How about these poppies? Mom loved the color of these. 

We do have ONE photo this week from our own garden: it's our very FIRST carrot! This is called a "Baby Babette" carrot. Can you believe it grew from a teeny tiny seed? Gardening is amazing!

Whoa! Patches! Take it easy. It's just a photo of a carrot! We don't have any treats dude! Next time we will bring you an apple or something. We promise!

Have a great weekend friends! We will see you on Monday. We hope everyone has fun and plays safe on this holiday weekend. xoxo, Raymond (and Patches)

  2. That was a GREAT tour, Raymond! The only bad thing was how could you NOT have a treat for that sweet horsie?? I think you should go back and take him your nice carrot! Nosetaps!

  3. Wait - Renee doesn't have a garden cat?! How does she get anything done?

  4. My mum loves the California poppies. Our state flower is something really boring.
