DANTE AND THE WHITE STUFF IN THE GARDEN



Today is Thursday, and Dante is kind of upset. Where did the sun go? And what's all this white stuff on the ground and in the garden?


It stretches as far as the eye can see -- all the way down both sides of the street -- but only on the edges.


What's a gardener to do? This problem is too big for any one mancat, or ladycat for that matter! I appeal to you for help, Jonesie!!! Help!


How's a guy to fertilize with this cold stuff coating the garden bed?


Mama says when the sun comes out again, all this white stuff might go away. But then it's gonna come back again, and again and again for months and months. You can "bank" on it, she said!

Mama says even Jonesie can't help us now. It's even on my blog background, too! How flaky can you get?

This is Dante, Secretary of Fertilization for the Feline Gardener's Society, signing off for now. I sure hope I have better news to report next week, but it could be even worse. O Snoes!

I think we need to have the expert advice of Goldie from Sumac Stories. He's an expert ice pee-er! We could all learn from him.

purrs, Jonesie

WE think that cold stuff is heading for us! Mama is excited, but us, not so much. We wouldn't put our delicate little toes in it--we're impressed!

W hope the ow melts soon so y can carry on with your fertilisations

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Dante I am guessing that the ground is getting too hard to fertilize as it gets colder there - I think you will have to do a different type of gardening for a while - but I am not sure what that would be. At least your floof will keep you nice and warm - your brother and sister aren't that lucky!

Glogirly and Katie said...

Dante, I woke up to the same stuff this morning. Glogirly says it should melt soon. I just don't know what soon means. This is Minnesota after all.

mew!

You'll have to be brave and fertilize the white stuff! But don't crouch too low ~ 'cos if yoo have any it will freeze 'em off! Tee hee!

Cats in trees said...

Snow! We don't have it in our garden, but Alfie and Milo told us how to make it snow on our blog.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Oh dear. That does put a crimp in your gardening style. It's really too cold on the toes.

Cat of Nine Tales said...

I hope you have your bulbs in the ground. That's the only thing you can do this time of year.
Then the gardening comes inside...in pots. I don't think your type of fertilization is going to work out. That's an outdoor thing...I think.
Good luck with it! ~Lisa Co9T

We have never seen snow, and our mom says that it's unlikely we ever will. We're not sure if that's a good thing or not!

Sorry the white stuff is interferring with your gardening doodies. And you're mom is right. It will keep coming back for a few months.

Cat with a Garden said...

Oh la la, that looks quite frosty, Dante. In our neck of the woods winters are more of the mellow, wet and grey type. Still cold though! Last January we had a week of snow. Mom says she hopes it will snow again instead of all the grey dullness.

Eric and Flynn said...

That looks very cold to sit on Dante. We are glad we don't often get any.

The Monkeys said...

Ugh! Snow! We had some the other day too, but it's been raining so much today that it's all gone again.

Looks very interesting this snow stuff. We have never seen snow.
