Thursday in the Garden


If you remember, a few weeks ago we did a post about our beautiful nip plant that wasn't so beautiful anymore.  If you missed it, you can see that post HERE.

Mom followed all of the great advice that you gave her.  She re-potted it, fed it and put it outside.  It was really starting to come back!!

Then..............she saw THIS....


It looks like something got into our plant and broke all the branches....


You can see where they are bent.  Mom hope's it isn't Jb's pool pooping critter!!


The good news is that little, healthy shoots are coming up!  Yippeee....maybe our nip plant will survive!!

Wonder what mauled it???

We think it's gonna make it. Woo-Hoo! Nip party soon!

I know the feeling - I lost hope a bunch of times. But those nip plants are hardier than you'd think, and as long as those shoots show up, it's still got a chance!

Oh dear. What on earth could have done that to the poor nip plant? Thank goodness for the new healthy shoots!

Those new shoots look good. When will you be allowed to find out whether they smell as good as they look?

Sure hope our great and powerful frog pooper did not do this!!

Those nip plants are so tough. Our outside cat sleep on the nip plant and squash it, break it etc. and it comes back like crazy. So hope yours will come back too. Take care.

maybe wind or a bunny?

Could an introoder kitty have got to it? The shoots look nice and healthy so it should grow again.

Did an introoder kitty go to town on it? Hard to blame him...

The Island Cats said...

Maybe it was some introoder cat. That's what happens to our nip plant.

Maybe you should set up a "poop cam"...um, I mean "nip cam" to see if you can catch the critter in the act if it does it again.

TBT has learned to either hang up our Nip plants or put a wire cover over them. Otherwise they get rolled on a lot.
