Jeannie said it was okay if I bummed this off her blog.

I just loved it! :)
Well, today is Karma's birthday. She's seven years old and been annoying me lately--LOL! Not only does she pull the cat grass up by the roots and out of the planter...
...(notice how difficult to get a closeup of the cat grass without her head in the shot)...
...but she also yanks them up and leaves them to die on top of the ground. So I pushed each of the sprouted seeds back into the soil. And she yanked them up again.
I'm getting tired of replanting them--LOL!
I think I'll leave them and plant the next batch even deeper and keep it away from her longer. I was not generous with the seeds this time, either, so that may be adding to the problem. The grass is not packed together like it usually is. Well, happy birthday, anyways, Karma.
The things I do for you--LOL! ;)
Still foggy and frosty. I took pictures of the small trees yesterday that are planted along the sidewalk.
They remind me of the white flocked Christmas trees that my mom wanted for several years when we were young. What an ordeal when Dad decided it was cheaper to flock their own!
I remember plastic sheeting all over the walls and floor, the roar of the vacuum cleaner in reverse, and the stink of hot air, plastic foam, and pine. It was worth the extreme effort because Mom's tree always looked department store elegant with it's shiny balls and little red cardinals tucked into the branches. (Us kids insisted on our own green tree in the basement.)
Nature does the job while I am sleeping. ;)
Well, Karma is crying to go out on the porch. It was 21 degrees and fog again this morning. She won't last two minutes out there. ;) Happy Sunday!!
