The Nerve of her!

Can you believe she did that? I have never been so angry in my feline life!! The nerve of her...going out and gardening without us! She just went out and started gardening! No warning, no asking if we wanted to come along...nothin! I gotted up in the kitchen window and reminded her that we were still in the house and that, maybe, we would like to garden too...or at least supervise her progress (you have to keep your eye on the help at all times). She just ignored me...and she wasnt even wearing her Ipod! Honestly, do you think her flowers would be this pretty if we werent around to constantly tell her where she needed improvement?
And I just found out that this weekend we are getting 2 truckloads of mulch for the garden and the 2 front beds. There are 2 problems with this: #1 Did I say that I was free to supervise the delivery and placement this weekend? and #2 I dont want mulch in my bed! It is hard enough to have to sleep on the poor excuse the beans call a bed, the last thing I want is ground up wood chips in it. What was she thinking? On the plus side though...there might be a bug in the mulch...that might be fun if she finds a bug. Lots of screaming and flailing kinds of fun. Hmmmmm

Mommy says she still has a lot of work to do in the garden so we poodins might get to go out more later. Mommy still has to weed it all, lay some plastic for the walkway, find some pretty stones for the gravel walk, find some border plants, find a pretty archway into the garden area, and keep it nice and neat so it doesnt get over grown. Mommy says it is going to take the whole summer to get the garden just the way she wants it. Then she is going to work on the front beds some more. She wants some Peony bushes to line the front of the house in the big bed, and a couple more Hydrangea bushes. Mommy says it wont look really pretty until next spring. I cant figure out why she is doing all this work now then...why not just wait until next spring when it looks pretty. Beans...you cant tell them anything.


Oh, and look what Autumn got to do today...now I am all mad again...Harrumph.

Hi, efurryone! I found your blog from, um, The Crew, I fink. You has a pretty garden. Mom's always complainin bout too much werk waitin in the garden, then it rains all weekend. But that's ok; she grows real live catnip that does great wif no werk. Do your beans grow catnip?

Hello Autumn and Mouse! I found your blog thanks to The Crew, and I am sure glad I did!

It looks like you are having a blast with your human pets and the gardening. Just make sure you do supervise them as they tend to take long breaks supplemented with lemonade, and if they sip on that lemonade too long, they may not finish. I just wanted to give you the heads' up!

That's gonna be a great garden but it would be even better with the feline touch. Supervise as best you can and try to get it arranged so there are neat kitty nooks to hide out in.

That is so not fair. You should be allowed to go outside every day, and especially to supervise the gardening.

We ALWAYS supervise the gardening around here, but we have to do it through the screen since we're never allowed outside. (sigh) Your yard looks very nice though, so it's easy to tell you're doing a good job.
