Cat Tales ~ Garden Shots

Mommy said she'd be here tomorrow with photos of the wedding. So until then here's a few garden photos for your enjoyment. 
Oh.... And beginning today, Me is going to have a Pumpkin update every Monday on Me's post.
So, first the garden photos, then the Pumpkin photos.
(And remember to click on a photo to enlarge it)

The wee little Pumpkin Plant that many people pondered over, has quickly grown into a behemoth.


It has grown across the front sidewalk and into the other flower bed. Mommy has kept the leaves trimmed back so people can get up and down the steps. Mommy found a pair of kid's socks amongst the leaves the other day..... I hear mutterings in the house about "having to keep an eye on That Plant....." and "should the postman go missing.....". But Me knows that The Pumpkin is a strong young plant that only wants to claim enough area to raise a family.


So far there is only one baby. And what a BIG baby it is! This nice looking Jack is only three weeks old and is slightly larger than a basketball. Mommy says it may grow as big as the front step. Maybe I can talk Mommy into measuring Jack before next Monday so We can see how much The Pumpkin grows in a week.

That Angel's Trumpet is beautiful! How exciting to have that healthy of a pumpkin growing. I've seen lots of pumpkin horror stories around the blogosphere lately, so you're lucky!

Yes, We all feel so lucky to have such a strong Pumpkin plant in our front yard! Mommy told Me that she would go measure Jack tonight.

Robin, Mommy said she didn't think there were any neighborhood kids missing. Mommy said that she heard some of the Loud, Noisy, Sticky Little People that she calls The Grands talking abut 'feeding' The Pumpkin to make it grow bigger. And knowing those Little People, they would feed it their socks. Who knows what else Mommy may find in the Plant!
