Thursday in the Garden with Simba - a Mishap


Dad has rearranged everything on my deck in order to clean and stain it so I don't have any new pictures of my deck "garden". In fact, yesterday evening Dad got about half the floor stained after work, which was really terrific. After dinner a sudden storm came up and RAINED on the wet stain! Then a gust of wind blew down my favorite Swedish Ivy plant and smashed it and the pot all over the deck! Here is what it looked like last week, but I think now it will only be good for the compost pile. Maybe Mom can take cuttings and root them and start it again:


When Mom supervises me in the yard, I usually stick close to the foundation and go behind the bushes. A bonus is that it makes it harder for her to pick me up and bring me back inside, until *I* am ready. I look more accessible in this picture than I actually was:


Happy gardening, kitties! Please visit Jonesie the Founder of the Society of Feline Gardeners. She has a new WOOFIE in her garden!

  4. That's a drag about your plant, wonder if you can save any of it? Your Dad was probably not too happy about his work getting ruined by the rain either!

  5. Oh, we're sorry about your Swedish ivy! It's a lovely plant, we think rooting some cuttings is a great idea.

    And good luck to your dad on getting the deck stained!

  7. We're sorry your plant got busted up and that your dad's new stain got rained on. Hope they both turn out okay.

    That's a good idea to stay behind bushes so your mom doesn't pick you up to go in before you are ready to!

  14. Oh drats Simba
    We know how upsetting it must have been to lose the swedish ivy plant. But those do grow easily, we hope you're able to salvage some of it.

  16. Whew! Your Dad did a lot of work just to get it rained on! Mommy says the Swedish Ivy is practically unkillable and to do cuttings.
    The Baby likes to run behind the Lemon tree where it's thorny and tease Daddy to pry her out...she's naughty!

  18. Our Teri needs to work on 'our' deck too...she has the stuff, just not the urge she said. We hope your mom can bring that hurted plant back to life, and you look quite contemplative in the bushes there...
