Wheelie Wednesday - The Garden

Hi everybody - it's me, Autumn!

There are all kinds of things happening in the garden! Spring is such a pretty time of year for all kinds of flowers to be blooming and all kinds of critters to be out and about! The weeds are growing like crazy! I need to grab a shovel and rake and make this garden presentable! We sure can't have any tea pawties in the garden with it looking like this!
The calendula's are blooming already! I sure do love orange! It's my very favorite color!
ohhhhhhhh - a kitty! I see you're right next to the catnip! I hope you haven't been overdoing it!
This plant is called Lady's Mantle. Water droplets bead up on it and early in the morning it's just beautiful!
This orange flower is called a Gerbera Daisy. Mom got this plant and the pretty pink one just like it from Melissa on mother's day!
This pretty purple stuff is called Ajuga. Mom is nutty about purple and orange color combination! She says that's what happens when you get old!

This orange flower is a perennial Poppy! Mom really loves it because it self-sows all over the garden! Why is that strange woman staring at me? Does she not like my gardening hat?!

Gardening is hard work and I came inside for a breather and a nice tall glass of iced tea! Who are you? Shouldn't you be outside with the other chippers? You'd better not let Mitch and Maggie catch you in here!

Check out my new garden bandana! Mom made it for me! Isn't it so cool with the little carrots on it?!

I think the garden looks presentable for a tea pawty, don't you?!

See you all next Wednesday!

Autumn, we love the tour of your garden! Spring time sure is pretty there! That's a very pretty bandanananana with the tiny carrots on it! It looks very nice on you! Patches says to thank Maggie & Mitch for the beautiful birfday card. Mom will put it on our bloggy as soon as she is feeling a little better.

Hi Autumn
WOW - Mom is super jealous of your gorgeous garden! I bet you like to spend a lot of time there now that spring has sprung. Here in Texas we had one week of spring! Now its 95 degrees till November!

You're doing a great job on your lovely garden Autumn. We loved looking at your pretty flowers, and the cat - we have one of those in our garden too - as if we don't have enough cats in the house, she's got to put one outside too! Happy Wheelie Wednesday.

What a lovely tour of your garden. Our garden is full of weeds. It was rude of that one lady to stare at you while you were out wheeling. Bring on the English tea.

You couldn't be any prettier in your garden bandana, Autumn.

What pretty flowers you have in your garden. Ours is looking rather bleak at the moment as the leaves have fallen off the trees. It will be worse when winter sets in.

That is such a delightful garden! Do NOT let Swede William and Lindy Loo visit it unless you want it to look like a volcanic eruption! We of course would dispense of that C-A-T and, don't look now, but there is a squirrellie (ALLLLAAAARRRRRMMM!!) with racing stripes right in front of you!!! ACCCKKK!!!

I just came in from running through the garden. Ms. Alpha's shrieks scared me very, very much.

She kept repeating, "My peonies, my peonies!"

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Oh should change your name to look bootiful in your gardening hat, giving us your lovely tour....I'm not fond of ice tea, but I did pour myself a tall glass of fresh squeezed lemonade to have with you!

Wow...we have that A CHOO GA stuffie in our garden too, but Mumsie didn't know the name...sounds like ya need a kleenex....

Thank you for the lovely tour...your such a lady. Did you go to a finishing school? I should come and take lessons!!!!

Good evening maggie.
I like orange of the calendula.
Of course, the pumpkin also :.
The maintenance of a wonderful garden is serious.
However, the gladness when the flower blooms is very good feelings. :)

The garden looks like it's coming along nicely! It's been so cold here that everything is sorta stunted. Once things start blooming good, then maybe I'll give a tour too! You've always got such great ideas on your blog.
