It's A Miracle. It's A Miracle.

Look! Look!  Not only did my mum survive the kitten, the flowers came back purple!  Not buying that? Well, it was worth a shot.  Yes, I did buy a new one and replaced the poor, mangled yellow mum. The injured flower went into the relocation program where it can recover at its leisure. 

If you are wondering what's under the screen, it's my tulip bulbs. The terminator seems hellbent on watering and fertilizing my new tulip bulbs, hence the screen.  I'll let you know if it works.

Got any terminators in your garden?

  2. Your cat should not be allowed out without supervision. Hope the new mums make it.

    1. Good point. Grin. It's like putting a kid in front of the TV set hoping for peace and quiet. When he gets on my nerves I put him outside. Then when he starts harassing the outdoor cats, I bring him back in. On and on it goes.

  3. I love mums. Good luck with their revival. The new plant looks good. (I love purple, too.)

    1. I do too, Elizabeth. They are the queen flowers of fall. And there are so many wonderful varieties. Actually, I've never met a flower I didn't like:)

  4. Love the new flowers, hope they survive the terminator. The pigeons did a lot of damage in spring, trampling all the seedlings flat and sitting on the flowers! Have good week, hugs, Valerie

    1. Interesting. I wonder what spice is on the purple that the rabbit doesn't care for:)

  8. I gave up planting tulips. The chipmunks love them and eat the bulbs. Chipmunks don't like daffodils.

    1. I did too where I lived before, CJ. It was ground hogs at my place. We'll see how it works out here.

  9. I have to take a picture of my hubby's mum...it's gigantic! I feel like if I walk by it, it will eat me. Glad you got a new one and, yes, my hubby is at war with the squirrels and an orange cat. The squirrels are leaving their food in our ivy fence and the cat likes to stare at our cats and sprays.

    1. Ha! One year my husband whacked the flowers and left the weeds. Those flowers never did recover.

  12. Yes, the rabbits around here love eating the stems from the Black-eyed Susans and leaving the flowers as some kind of peace offering. I can’t be cross with them though they are just too cute. Good luck with your tulips I do hope they survive the terminator!

    1. Thanks, Barbara. Bunnies are so cute. Too bad they don't stick to eating clover;)

  13. You are so funny Sandra! LOL! I hope your mum survives! And, I hope the screening does too! I use to use screening too, but stopped. We have so many squirrels. Actually it's funny, every year, you don't know where they have planted the tulips. They come up in the weirdest spots! LOL! Good luck and Big Hugs!

  14. We most definitely have terminators. Who excavate, fertilize and/or demolish. At their whim. Furry AND feathered terminators. Good luck.

  17. I have had terminators in my garden. I had some groundhogs this year that were making things difficult for me!

    Glad things are going well for you! :)
