Oh Bob - fantastic trip round your garden today! Thank you for brightening up a dull November morning :)) Big hugs, Di xxx

Crikey Bob, what a lot of blooms for late Autumn, you and your mummy must have very green fingers - I am particularly impressed at what you've grown from a tiny acorn! Also, what a beautiful idea to mark the spot where your mummy's cat lies, with that lovely figure of a sleeping cat. Thank you for the great tour, it was such fun.

I love your garden!! We don't have one where I live, although we can look out to the garden of the basement flat. They don't do much, but there's lots of sparrohs that live in a big bush!!! And I love the weathergram in your tree!!!

CherryPie said...

I loved your pictures and the little tour round your garden. I am sure you know that gardens are one of my favourite places to be :-)

Jerry and Ben said...

Love the garden Bob! Winter is almost here where we live; all the leaves on the trees say by bye, and the snow will be falling soon. Jerry and me are more sleepy in the winter, so we take long naps.

Your garden is loverly Bob. We had some Rue but our dog used to like to wee on it, and eventually it gave up!
We've got plants that think it is still summer too! Still got roses out!

We helped the Garden Gals (our wives, daughters and Mom) put the outdoor garden to bed the end of October and the day before our first snowstorm, so we're sighing and enjoying your photos. (Pretty impressive even to the stuffed Garden Gals and they have eyes for "impressive.")

We picked a bunch of our herbs, before they died or went into hibernation. (Your Rosemary is about 4 times as big as ours, so we're beary impressed.) In the States, next Thursday is our Thanksgiving Day, which means lots of cooking followed immediately by lots of eating. (We can't wait for Thanksgiving. We're starving. kehehehehehe) We have all the herbs we need from our own garden, and we're hoping our pickled tomatoes are ready by then. ('sposed to wait for 6 weeks, but we didn't pickle until that first snowstorm.) Usually, we have homegrown tomatoes with that dinner, but our 'maters did poorly this year (and the squirrels did well eating them, before we could pick them.)

We only have two gardens now - the succulents that live in the window upstairs all winter and the gotta-water-a-lot garden with a grow light in the basement.

We've been tissue-issuing like crazy around here. First Daddy had the cold, and now Mommy won't give hers away, so we still owe everyone our photo essay of pie-crust art. We haven't forgotten, it's just secretary issues. We're sure you understand. ;)

Thanks for the reminder there is still life outside these walls and our parents' colds. We needed that (and just bought another 6 pack of tissues yesterday.)

You have a lovely garden BobT. I hope you don't go frolicking in the nettles without your pants. OOOh that would be bad. The pansies (hee hee) are beautiful and I hope they stay pretty all winter.

Feronia said...

Thank you, Bob. I liked your garden pictures. I remember when you planted the Oakey's acorn. Nice to see he's growing strong.
