August Garden Tour With Cody
Cody's August Garden Tour
Hello efurrybody! Cody here with our August garden tour. As you may know I am Momma's official cat helper in the garden. She lets me go out with her to weed and water and of course take pictures. I hate it when she drags me inside though.
We are winding down in the gardening season here. This summer was not very good for our flowers. It was very cool with lots of rain. Flowers in the summer need warmer temps and plenty of sun. So do I and Momma! :)
We like our Mr. Sun and his faerie friend Betony. They enjoy the Foxgloves and little garden faeries hide in the Foxglove in the evening.
The pink lily is the last blooming lily of the summer. It is called Rubrium. It's a Turk's Cap. It looks like it has little rubies embedded in it's petals. Momma ordered them from Old House Gardens a while ago.
We like the red and orange Lantana with the purple Pansies in our old Tuscan sun flower pot.
Momma and I have decided that the Hibiscus is not quite dinner plate sized; More like dessert plate maybe. But, still, they are lovely. We are still waiting for the white ones to open and our Sunflowers are not quite open yet. They will probably open this week.
Sadly, today is the last day we will be in the low 80's. We will be getting an Autumnal chill coming in after Wednesday. Bummer!
The two boy kitties are still visiting us and Momma is still feeding them. The Daddyman is not very happy about it. He thinks they need to go to the Humane Society. Momma said No Way! Tigger Roo especially will have a hard time getting a home. Most people don't want older cats like him.
Momma of course wants every kind of cat! What am I going to do with her? :) I'm happy and Lucky that she loves me even though I am an older gentleman.
We will be poppping in on all of you bloggie friends this week. We Never Forget any of You and We Adore You All!
Hugs and Purrs,
~Cody Mac Boldly~
