Thursday in the Garden with Ellie and Allie

Our pal Jonesie started the Society of Feline Gardeners a while back. As you know, Mom is not a very talented gardener, but she does manage to grow one type of plant very well. Today we will share her orchids with you!
It's impawtent to make sure orchids don't get too much water. Here we are checking the pots.
Allie says this pink one is purrfect.

Ellie makes sure the leaves are clean and well hydrated.

Here are some close-ups of our favorites.

We know this doesn't actually qualify as a GARDEN, but Mom is a pretty lame gardener so we take what we can get!

We particularly love that pink one in the middle. We have never gotten one like that--we have had the yellow and purplish ones which the Woman likes but they die after a year or so.

You actually have flowers so your mom is a way better gardener than ours is! It's good she has you to help too though!

Oh, my goodness what beauty! We think if your mom can grow such beautiful orchids she can grow any plant and it would be gorgeous. These beauties are breathtaking as are you two sweeties. Thanks for sharing the orchids with us. Hugs and nose kisses

Acshually, we fink yoor mom is a VERY talented gardener, 'cos our mom said that Orchids are tricky to grow and only talented gardeners can grow them successfully.
Yoor Orchis are really beautiful and the colours are stunning. Yoo are doing an excellent job snoopervising them to assist yoor mommy.

I bet orchids grow nicely in Florida! It's harder where we live because it's too dry for them, but when my human has tried putting them in the bathroom, it got a little too humid for them! Alfie is right, it's actually a little tricky, getting the balance just right!

Wow, those orchids are fabulous! Just incredible! We're very impressed...We understand that orchids are difficult to grow, that they need a lot of care. So your mom is doing something right!

Your Mom and our Momster have a lot in common. Mom isn't too good with the outside gardening, especially with her nonhelper, the un-gardener Ciara. But she too has some very pretty orchids. The yellow and purple are both in bloom now. We will have to see if she can post about them soon.

Yours are very beautiful and so healthy looking.

Our Mommy is very impressed she says orchids are hard to grow and that yours are just lovely. She is drooling over the pink one.

Beautiful flowers and gorgeous ladykittehs. What more could anyone ask?

Marg said...

Those are absolutely gorgeous orchids. They are hard to grow and keep alive so we think you are a great gardener. They are all very pretty. We like them all. Take care.

ABBY said...

Those are stunning!
We think your Mom is a much better gardener than she gives herself credit for.

That's impressive! Your orchids are stunning.

Did you know that my mom kills unsuspecting indoor plants? There is a reason I do most of my gardening outdoors. My plants are safer that way.
