Well, since Momma had such a bad week last week, I thought I would do a positive Tattle on Tuesday for her. See...my momma has learned how to be a good gardener over the past few years! She works at home most of the summer, reading and writing her dissertation and articles, and so she likes to have it pretty outside, and Coco and I like to walk around the flowers, too. Here are Momma's plants this summer:
She keeps petunias outside the building door and in a box outside our kitchen window.
There are pinks and marigolds outside our bedroom window, and there are seeds that are growing now!
Momma dug up this flower bed (did you know that flowers stay in beds all day?) and put some iris from Granny's house in there. Granny put some marigolds in here, too, when she and Poppa visited two weeks ago. The red flower is a poppy. Momma said it "volunteered," which I think was very nice of it. Volunteering is a good thing to do.
This is the bed outside our living room. This plant is called a "Coral bouquet heuchera." It was there when we moved here, but Momma takes good care of it so it blooms for a long time. And Mr. Hummingbird loves it, so we get visited by him every day! The plant next to it is a peony, which was here when we moved in, too. It is tired in its bed and is almost done with its flowers.
This year Momma decided to try having some tomater plants, because she loves tomaters. She told me and Coco that we will have to help her keep the rabbits from eating her tomaters.
And this is the best plant of all: Momma took my catnip plant out of its little pot in our 'partment and put it in a bigger pot outside so it can get big this summer!!! I am so excited.
I hope you all are having a nice summer so far, buddies. Granny and Poppa and Auntie Jane in Michigan have lots of water around their houses, and Auntie Jane has water standing in her basement, which sounds very gross to me. I hope none of you have water inside your homes!
