The patio part of our backyard has some built-in planters. But I only care about one of them.
There are some of the planters. Can you see the one I am looking at?
Can you see better now?
Here it is in all its glory — my catnip garden! My human caught some wayward calico dipping into it the other day. But there is still lots there, even if it does look a little ratty and yellow around the edges.
My human cut off a lot of the flower buds because she wanted to keep the plants kind of bushy, but finally she gave up and let them bloom.
Remember the marigold seedling my human brought home a few weeks ago? It is still there, and while I can’t say it is exactly thriving, it is growing and continuing to flower. My human cut off some of the dead flower heads to keep it flowering, but she has also let some of them dry up and go to seed, so we will continue to have more.
Of course my human was not allowed to go out and photograph my nip without bringing in some cuttings.
Uh-oh, I think my nip party is about to turn into a smackfest!
