Thursday in the Garden with Simba



It’s getting to be time to bring the houseplants in off the deck. They have really enjoyed the summer outside: the spider plant has oodles of spidey babies, and the one Swedish ivy that didn’t crash down is looking lush.





When Mom “supervises” me on a walk around the outside of the house (actually, when she catches up with me if I escape from the deck), I sit in this spot at the back corner of the house and take in the sights and sounds of the neighborhood. This is close to the basement window I like to sit in and watch the world go by, and nap when I get dozy. It has a nice wide ledge and I can just see the birdfeeder from there.


Happy Gardening, all you cats and woofies and parents! At our house, pretty soon it will be only LEAVES LEAVES AND MORE LEAVES!

  2. Our mom has already taken in our plants...or at least the few that she tries to save. That's a great spot to hang out, Simba!!

  4. Our plants are still outside and will stay there until at least December.....probably January.....before we have a few nights that we will have to haul them all in. We always look forward to having them come in so we can check them all out!!!!!!!!!

    Happy Thursday, dear Simba, we are so thankful for your friendship. xxxxxxxxxx

  5. Our plants will need to come in soon too. It's been unseasonably nice here so far though so they are still out.

    It's been so dry here that much of our garden is wilting. We have been on water restrictions for years, so we can only water twice a week. Still feels like spring/summer here, still using the A/C...and I understand our winter will be warmer than normal because of La Nina.

  9. Simba, is that a Christmas cactus, too? We have one but my mom is not too good with plants and the parts that haven't died off haven't bloomed in eons!

    That looks like a great place to sit and watch stuff!

  11. That spider plant had a LOT of spider babies! Very pretty. Autumn is definitely coming. Our human grandmother in Indiana reports that the high temps went from the 70's to the 50's overnight. Brrr!

  12. Your plants did really well outside this summer. That ledge does look like a great spot to watch the goings on in your yard. You are looking very handsome on it too Simba!

  15. Simba, do you nom the spidey plants, and are they tasty? Just wondering.

    The Baby is sort of getting used to her harness so she gets to stay putside a lot longer now.
