The Block Party & The Garden

This is not the most important of garden blogging posts, but I had to add these pictures since they involve our garden. I promised myself on that day I would not be giving garden tours, and I didn't! Instead, we spent hours and hours directly across the street, and in the street, spending quality time with one another. It was a great party and we will certainly do it again next year!

So who knew that you could invite the fire station around the corner and they'd ride a truck on over for the kids? I had no idea, but a neighbor knew, and she invited them. We were not disappointed, especially when it parked in front of our house! (Red really does go with green doesn't it?)

Also, later on in the evening, the two most daring cats crawled out to stake their claim to our feline friendly pad. This was quite shocking seeing as there were several large dogs off leash roaming around directly across from them. Out in front is my old lady, Macavity, and Meng, the neighbor cat with two homes, is in the back. They made me so proud.


  1. Looks like fun! I wish my neighborhood looked as good as yours.

  2. Really? Thanks! The two Doug firs help a lot. Living at the bottom of Tabor on the edge of Montavilla isn's bad either.

  3. Our neighborhood party almost always turns into garden tours. Snooping into other people's gardens is great fun for me.

    I'll have to invite the firefighters next time to spice things up.

  4. Your cats are so cool-looking. I used to have a stray that I fed and visited my garden but I haven't seen him much and your pics reminded me how much I miss my little black cat.

  5. Mr Brown Thumb,
    I take great pride in my cat training abilities. Dogs like me too, but not like cats. I am sorry to hear about your missing furry friend. Around here, many cats are being eaten by coyotes, even in the city. If you can get to an animal shelter, they always have black cats no one wants. With the poor economy, they need more help than ever. I wish I could adopt more of them, but my current herd would commit mutiny.
