Thursday in the garden.September.

                                                                 : : meowwww : :

Leo , " Guess who was able to take  over join me in the garden this week ? She's behind the umbrella."

Tulip , " That's right , it's me... Tulip! I get to come out in the garden now with Leo. LP said as long as I behave. Huh? Why wouldn't I behave?! Of course I need my luxuries like my dog  bed and an umbrella to shield my delicate complexion from the sun rays. Guess what I can smell from here?!"

Tulip , " The rose bush !"

Tulip, " Loverly ! "

Tulip , " LP planted some cat nip in the middle of this rain barrel which I found immediately and nestled in ! "

Tulip , " I don't think Leo even knows it's here! "

Leo , " Pssst. Down here ! I want to show you some flowers that are still blooming. Now that it's September I'm not sure how much longer they will be in bloom..."

Leo , " These flowers look as though they may retire soon..."

Leo , "...but these just started blooming! "

Leo, " These flowers bloomed all summer long and are still blooming. "

Leo , " This tea rose bush bloomed in June and now it is blooming again!"

Tulip ," Blah.Blah.Blah. The thing about Leo is he can get kinda carried away with this garden stuff and now I'm sitting on his garden throne making my take over  tour complete. It's good to be Queen. Hope you enjoyed the tour ! I think this is what LP meant by behaving. You know.Sitting pretty and all..."

Leo , " Lavender's blue, dilly, dilly, lavender's green. When I am King , dilly, dilly, you shall be Queen. "

Have a wonderful day! We hope the garden tour wasn't too long winded today !
See you soon.

  1. All the flowers are beautiful Leo...but make sure that Tulip doesn't completely take over. Evenly divide the time between the two of you for the throne if you must!! Tulip, that cat nip is better then the throne! And Leo doesn't even know it's there...take advantage of that!! Heehee!!
