::3 Paw Taps::
It is a great gardening day today. Our weather is sunny and hot: supposed to reach about 90 F today! In the late morning, Mom and Dad said we could both go on the deck. Simba went right out:
For those new to the blog,"The Garden" for us is mostly the deck, since that is where the humans plant new stuff. The big garden is mostly trees and shrubs which don't change except for during shrub blooming seasons. Our impatiens got started late, what with weddings and such, but they are looking pretty nice now. There are three boxes of multicolored impatiens.
The catnip plant has bushed out and even has some flowers now. Time to picks some, Mom!
There are two Swedish Ivy plants - they just grow so prolifically and look so nice and green! This one is hung below a tube hummingbird feeder.
Here is a closeup of the feeder: yes, we do have some hummingbird visitors, or at least one, anyway.
Our new adventure this year, for the first time in many years, is to grow some baby lettuce. They only planted the seeds a few days ago, and look how fast they are sprouting!
They also planted some basil seeds that are JUST germinating - can you see a couple of tiny green plants?
