Thursday in the Garden

I thought I'd join in with the gardening kitties out there.  I'm afraid my garden is woefully neglected at the moment.  It's been too hot lately to do any serious work outdoors but I did manage to take a few pictures of things that have survived the heatwave.  So here is a cat's-eye view.
Casper and Ben Supervise
Day Lilies
Black Eyed Susan
I just love my Ferns
Pee Gee Hydrangea that I planted last year seems to be coming along
A valiant effort from my Asian Lily that was decimated this year by nasty red beetles
Purple Coneflower
Well that's it for my first garden post, just a few pictures until something else grows :-) We are supposed to have a few cooler days this weekend so hopefully I can give it some of the attention it so desperately needs.

Don't forget to pop over to Wendy's LOLSpot if you have a moment and see my kitties featured as LOL - CATS!

Hurrah for your first gardening post! Go over to see Jonesie at Cory Cat Blog (http://corycattalks.blogspot.com/) and join the Society of Feline Gardeners (if you want to, of course!).

We especially like your ferns (they'd be great for hiding under!) and your Black-Eyed Susans!

Welcome to the gardening "club". Mom LOVES ferns and hydrangeas and lilies! So pretty.

Wendy did a super set of LOL's for you - of course the pictures from your blog gave her a good inspirational set to work with. She is very creative with what she thinks up to go along with them, isn't she?

What I can see is absolutely gorgeous! Now if you want to see really woefully neglected you don't need to look any further than my backyard. That's why I usually have Dante's gardening posts in the front!

Let's hope for some rain soon, so those pretty posies can be quenched.

Love the snoopervisors, there -- going through their screening process! Cute!
