Our Garden as Shown by Shoko

 

The garden has been grown’ something awesome in the last couple of weeks.                                                                This is how the flower garden looked at the end of winter.  Disgusting isn’t it?  We had very little snow and very, very cold weather.  We lost almost all our perennials.  What are those blue patches you ask?  They are piles of fertilizer to kill the weed called Horse’s Mane.  This weed has elastic roots and if you grab it to pull it out….the spores disperse throughout the garden.  Each spore starts a new Horse’s Mane.

                                                                              It is easy to see where the weed is dying from the fertilizer.  One must have patience as the dying must happen underground too.  So we have patches of dead Horse’s Mane lying all over the garden.  The girls are not interested.

                                                                    The flower garden is small but the perennials will grow and be much bigger next year.

 Our squash patch was much the same…nekked!

 Kinda depressing work, when I look at it now.                                                                              We even lost all our strawberries.  Such a pile of work.

                                                                         There are still many vacant areas and the plants are slow….especially the cucumbers.

                                                                            This is the veggie garden in June before the hot weather.

I toiled all day in the veggie garden.  Only coming in for naps and food.  I worked my paws to the bone.  I think it was worth it.

                                                                      Mom is having cauliflower and beet greens from my veggie garden.

                                                                            Hi Cow Kitty, quite the amount of nip plants this year.  I count 4 but they’re rather squished now. MOL

What’s that Cow Kitty doing, Shoks?                                                                           It’s ok, Kali.  Cow Kitty is havin’ some nip but there’s 4 plants out there.  We won’t run out.

Well, there’s our garden so far.  The best patch is the veggie garden if I don’t say so myself. MOL

As they say sometimes you’re the seed, sometimes you’re the dirt.  Hope tomorrow is a seed kind of day.                                                                             

 

 

 

 

Artsy Fartsy Day is Here My Friends

I’m going to be an artistic devil today.  Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty, is continuing with her artsy blog hop this week.  Go have a peek at your anipals in odd artistic backgrounds.  Have a few laughs to start your day.

SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI…..ORANGE
MOM…..RED VIOLET                                                                       Kali decided she wanted to do Sunday Selfie so I get the fun artistic picture.  Mom and I chose a picture mom took this morning while I was helping her make the bed.  We do have chores.  No free lunch in this abode.

Mom cropped the picture on Pizap.

The effect we liked best this week was the Shamrock cutout.  It was on Lunapic.

St. Patrick’s Day is on March 17th and we are prepared.

Mom, are you and dad going somewhere for a vacation this year?  We are Shoko.  You’re going to leave us alone?  No, of course not!  Judy the petsitter is going to stay here while we’re away.  Really?  That will be so much nicer than being here alone with Kali.  She works during the day doesn’t she?  She does ShokoGood….I mean we need some private time too.                                                                How long will you be gone?  A little over two weeks Shoko.  When I come back ‘ll have a few treats for you and Kali.  Say that sounds cool!

May your mice be furry and your
wet food nekked.                                                                                               Have a mellow Sunday my friends.

Shoko’s Trials with the Travelling Sunglasses

We received the Travelling Sunglasses, that originated with Phoebe of 15 and Meowing, from The Critters in the Cottage.  Mom was delighted but I was skeptical.  What was I suppose to do with these things?  Mom said I was supposed to wear them….where and what for?                                                      a3Mmmm…. Island Paradise treats.

ashokglas1Humpf….not liking this!

ashokglasses2           Everything looks strange.                                                              aasholglass5MOL. Everybody can see your nekked legs, mom!  I think our friends have seen nekked legs before Shoko.  Well, at least they’re no longer as furry as mine.  MOL

ashoksuccessglassesIt’s so dark in here,,,hell-o, hell-o?  Do I look sophisticated?….you be the judge my friends.

May you see the world through  rose coloured sunglasses!                                                                        badge1

A Meander Through Fall’s Picture

Let’s take a stroll through the Lane.  Our neighbours worked and got rid of some trees earlier during the summer.  There was a loud racquet for days coming from this backyard.  This is what they added.                                                           A wire fence or a section of it.  Looks like some peeps are ready to play hockey out here.  These folk had a B & E early last year and this is their protection now,  a new fence where everybody can walk around it.

The lane dressed for fall in orange and yellow with a tad of green.                                                                                   These trees are tired of the orange and yellow and are darned near nekked already!

I’m coming mom.  Slow down I gotta read the newspaper and find out who’s been here.                                                                                 Can you find me?Spot the Siamese!  MOL  Pretty good hiding place, eh?  I still can’t catch a mouse though….I’ve tried everything…cwap!                                                                 Ahhhh….feels good to lay down.

Kali is doing her best impression of Robert De Niro in Taxidriver, “You lookin’ at ME?”

Here is a slightly blurry picture of Cow-Kitty looking proud as punch.                                                                               Yep, you’re right, this is a pile of dirt on Showkali Island.  Cow-Kitty was sleeping in here when mom got up this morning so she took him a bowl of Purrfect Bistro Duck Pate.  He proceeded to gobble it up and then he buried his bowl.  Mom had never seen this before have you?
