Issa , " Here I am in the garden acting all nonchalant when I am in fact conducting a MUTINY on the garden post! That's correct. No Leo or Tulip giving you a garden tour today! "
Issa , " It has been raining alot here in Vancouver and everywhere you look you can see rain droplets collected in or pooled on leaves."
Issa , " But plants are finally blooming although the roses are not as crisp as they would otherwise be without all this rain! "
Issa , " Do you remember this plant when it was first planted less than a month ago?"
Issa , " Look at it now! "
Issa , " This is a dahlia. LP is mad for dahlias! This one will only be a foot tall but LP has planted some dahlia tubers and they will grow to be over five feet tall! We will show them to you later in the summer when they have reached their height."
Issa , " Guess what I can smell ? It is permeating the air that I breathe! "
Issa , " It is a chocolate cosmos plant! And it truly smells like chocolate! I kid you not!! "
Issa , " Here are more flowers that have bloomed ."
Duffy , " Issa I want to say something on the garden post MUTINY! "
Duffy , " There is a family of chickadees that is living in one of our birdhouses! And LP says it makes her heart soar every time she sees them flitting over the garden blooms on their way to their little house."
Issa , " We hope you enjoyed our garden post mutiny! Next week Leo and Tulip will resume their positions as your garden tour guides. No more mutiny. We promise ! "
Have a great day!
See you soon.
