England and Gardens



Every spring the woman redesigns her garden. And by redesigns, I mean... she rearranges her patio pots and plants flowers in them. Today was the first day of spring garden design and repotting at our house. She brought home a bunch of plants that she surmised slugs won't eat (that's how she decided upon the flowers this year) and she began planting them in the various pots scattered around the patio.

Pumpy and I went out to help her. (She's a terrible gardener.) She lets weeds and moss grow in between the patio stones and so Pumpy and I happily ate them for her. This did not have a good result. It never does but somehow Pumpy and I cannot resist eating grass and weeds and other plants.

I'm glad it's spring so I can wander out into the back garden and lay down in sun spots.

You sure have a pretty garden. I think moss growing between the bricks looks nice.

see you there! said...

You look quite happy out there. Snails run rampant in our garden and drive the Man nuts. The Woman here doesn't garden although she admires a good one.

What a pretty picture of you in your garden! Looks like a cool place to hang out!

Sometimes the grass is really worth the yak.
At least I think so!

Julia said...

After you knaw away at the grass borders, make sure to yak on the most expensive rug or the fluffiest duvet; that always garners the most attention!

One more tip: ensure that you "dry heave" for at least three minutes to draw sufficient attention to yourself. This will allow the beans to respond to you in a panic, hoping they have time to divert your yakking on their most prized rug / duvet.. Then (wait for it, this is the best bit....) you YAK just when they are one second away! Priceless!

Oh! I love that part!

Hope you are charging your solar batteries, Pearl!

Does grass do the same thing to you as it does to me? I have to say my humans are not best pleased with the results of my healthy eating plans. FAZ
