  • Hey, Pssst…Siddhartha Henry, here comes supper… 😀 We are so sorry for your pigeon furriend. He must have loved you very much, because he left his soul at your place. RIP Dusty Pigeon ❤ ❤ ❤
    It's good to have other furriends around that distract you from the hurt, doesn't it? Bandhu is amazing. Still looking for some kind of flying mouse over here too 😀
    Your garden looks very beautiful and I am sure Mingflower and Sweet Nylablue are very purroud of you and your LadyMum. I think the hole is the heart surrounded by all the lovely flowers and it will be filled up next year of itself. Nature is amazing! Pawkisses for a wonderful day and some Extra Healing Pawkisses for your LadyMum. Stay well my furriends 🙂 ❤

    • Littul Binky what you said about Dusty leevin his soul here made us all leeky eyed…LadyMum had said sumfin simmylar!!! Hee felt safe to come here amidst thee noise an kay-os of thee busy street an peeple frum thee buildin….fank you fur thee kind werdss.

  • That was sad you had to loose your Dusty Pigeon furend. RIP, Dusty.
    What a cool bat is Bandhu! He must find your den a good place to cal his own:)
    (What does Bandhu mean, Sid-Henry?? Do you know? We are just curious.)

    Sorry that you have to see your LadyMum crying with pain so much. We will purr and pawyer fur her too.
    That wee garden is pretty and you know, its not *that* wee, MOL! Best wishes for the rose plant…meowmy is a klutz with those and she really is not a gardener at all, she just keeps a few potted patio plants each summer. easy ones like dahlias and impatiens…this year she did try some herbs and a (now huge) mini tomato plant, she has had the best time with that one:) Pounds of cherry tomatoes since about the past month. She got about one and a half pounds one day, but mostly about half a pound each morning…its taken over the patio and keeps on making more and more of those wee red globes they are so YUM!

    MIAOW!! We are chatty tonight,MOL!

    • Mee-yow Mistur Jack an Pipo an Minko losin Dusty rite befur mee eyess was so sad….hee was hunched over sunning himself an then hee was fallin over an…well, hee died rite there….
      Hee iss safe inn thee garden restin inn peece…
      Oh yes mee knowss what Bandhu meenss. It meenss FUREND inn Sanskrit/East Indian. A berry fittin name fur a sweet furend…..
      LadyMum ripped out thee end plant what tooked up so much space an nevurr flowered….now thee wildflowers have more space to grow an blossom….
      Wee will plant sumfing else next year…….Say maybe wee should try cherry tomatoess! LadyMum luvss them!!!
      An you can come bye an chat anytime mee deer furendss!
      ***Hi-5’sss*** Siddhartha Henry xXx
      Pee S: Do skunkss or raccoonss try to eat them tho’?? Or do they stay away?

      • Well, we are sure critters would love to sup on our fare, but we have a fence they have to scale…its a 6 foot fence, buried a foot underground as well. So diggers have to work hard. And dog-guy would chase them away if he had any idea…The locusts and other chewing bugs like to sample the goodies, or even destroy them…so there are some bug repellent plants among our assortment…do they work?? Um…sometimes! Mostly we chase them off or blow them away. The wasps are the worst bugs, though, they seem to be attracted by the nectar in some of the flowers, and of course the hummingbird feeders as well. Maybe its a good thing we stay inside…we don’t need to get stung…meowmy did a few weeks ago…ouch!

        • Mistur Jack an Pipo an Minko MEE got stung bye a nastee Wasp last month!!! Mee rite paw swelled uppy an it herted a lot!!! LadyMum washed mee paw an then sum Hydrogen Purroxide an Aunty-bye-o-tick Ointmint…After 3 dayss of treetmint mee paw was normal again an LadyMum (an mee) were so-o relieved!!!!
          Mee hopess yur Mumma iss all rite after her sting all so!
          Our nayburr has Citronella plants to keep ‘squitoss away butt so far LadyMum been poked bye them a lot! Shee even used sum “OFF” an thee ‘squitoss STILL came after her!! Phooey!!!!
          When mee has a snack or sup-purr inn Condo LadyMum sits out with mee to wave off any murrauderss that want mee food….an once mee dun shee takes thee bowl inn so buggies not come after thee crummss or MEE!!!
          Mee doess like Butterfliess tho’….they are so fluttery an beeuteefull…..
          **paw patsss** Siddhartha Henry xxx

    • Mee-you Lady Annie fankss fur stoppun bye an fur thee compleemint!!! Last nite LadyMum tooked out thee end bush inn thee garden…it was not flowerin an it was chokin thee daisy’ss an other flowerss…thee garden till lookss luvley; just not all bunched together!

    Please tell LadyMum we are purring and praying that she feels better. We know you are taking good care of her, because you love her so much.

  • I’m sorry your human has been feeling so poorly, Siddhartha! I know you are helping her as much as you can. I think you are doing an awesome job helping her with the garden – it looks way prettier than anything my human could do.

    • Fur reel Summer?? Mee thott yur Mumma iss berry ‘artsy fartsy’ (no diss-reesepct meant). Shee iss so kewl. Maybee shee iss so busy shee nevurr had time to garden?

Mee got uppy on counter an keeped pattin her head an meowin to her….(shee was quietlee cryin)…Then mee sat beeside her till shee could pull herself uppy. An then mee got her to thee ‘kat’ chair an laid across her feet so shee had to sit fur half an hour an rest….
      Poor LadyMum…..shee iss better today…so far….
      ***nose kissesss*** Siddhartha Henry xXxXx

  • Aww that is sad to hear about Dusty,but his time to cross had come and he is in a better place now. Your garden looks great you have both worked hard on it. It’s not to late to replant the rose,it just needs to be fed and then needs a good mulch of fertilizer and dead leaves in round the base and roots when the weather starts heading for winter to protect it. Horse manure is the best for that mixed in with a load of dead leave and then next year it will be perfect. Actually you could do that for all of your plants in your garden and you will have the best looking garden next year. Much love to you both and rest up both of you,xx Aunty Rachel and Speedy

  • Hey Purrince pal, your garden is lovely and you are doing a wonderful job. We’re sure sorry to hear about Dusty, that’s so sad. I gotta ask though, a bat? Does that mean you’re really Batman???

    • Mew mew mew Brian no mee not BATMAN….mee ISS KATMAN!!!! Mew mew mew….
      Mee knowss it iss unusual fur a kat an a bat to bee furendss butt reememburr as a Buudhist kat mee practices equalitee to all livin fingss an if a bat wants to bee furendss that iss ok with mee!!
      Dusty fliess free inn Pure Land…. it was bittersweet hee came here to us wee fed him fur a long time an then wee helped him at his end. All so part of beein a Buudhist!!

    • Hi Sis! Thanks for the compliment on the garden. After the destruction construction when Nylablue was still alive, it has been a struggle to bring that poor garden back. Worse without the Pine tree for shade also.
      My body is slowly failing. Every day it is something else. I was perturbed that this friend was upset I brought my walker when she uses one also…the nerve! Sending you (((hugs))) an ❤ LOVE ❤

  • Dear Siddhartha Henry, I am so sorry to hear your pigeon died. You and LadyMum have done great job in the garden, it looks very beautiful. Give your LadyMom a big hug from my mom, she has to walk with crutches, and she is crying sometimes.
    Have a peaceful day!
