Dante is in the front yard today.
He is PURRusing the proPURRty. The grass is long and lush and green.
"Reeleh, I likes it dis way", says he. "But we hasta keep up appearances in da neighPURRhood. Dis is goin' on Daddy's PURRiority list -- to cut da fwont lawn."
"An' now to da gardin. Yoo see dese flowahs? Well, mama is finally gonna plants dem in pots."
"Dat's de only kinda plantin' dat Mama does -- in pots. She says it's cuz weeds cant grow in dere an' its low MAINEtenance. I gess I mus' be low MAINEtenance, too -- cuz I is a MAINE Coon and I'm sittin' down LOW. It's da verreh best pawsition for snooPURRvisin'!"
This is a view from the front porch on one side. The freshly potted flowers will take a little while to fill out.
And this is the view from the other side. All of the pots have been planted with impatience and petunias in shades of pink, red, white, and purple. The big iron urns on the front steps contain some stunning deep pink double impatience and some other stuff that trails over the side. If anybody knows what it is, please let us know.
This is a wider view of the front walkway. We could finally put out all of our garden cats!
This is our little garden cat family. They have tuxies and red and cream tabbies, just like us! Also, please note the little kitty pot hanger on the plant pot.
And this is our pride and joy (aside from our real kitties, of course!). It is our Jim Shore Birdbath. We've had it now for about 6 years and have never seen a bird in it. Dante, Dylan and Domino do like to use it as a big water glass, though! They get up on their tippy-toes to drink out of it.
Here are some of my favourite garden cats. First, on the little garden bench are two Buddha cats, Senior and Junior, along with a Japanese Lucky Cat waving hello. Next come two porcelain hand-painted beauties who are PURRfect to adorn any garden. Then we have two blue calico cats who are basically mirror images of each other.
"Mama finely finished plantin' in da front gardin, but dere's still some flowahs left ovah. She says we kin put dem in pots in da back yard, but I fink dey looks pretty jus' sittin' on da chair. Domino mite fink udderwise", says Dante.
"Dat's all fur dis week. I fink I deserves a snooze. All dat snooPURRvisin' is verreh hard work!"
