Thankful Thursday In The Garden

Welcome this week to our Garden.
I am the Garden Cat again this week.
Come with me and let's check out how
things are blooming.

Mom went out early and took pictures of
everything after a rain from last night.

One tiny droplet of rain on a rose petal.

Dripping Lily of Nile

The drops look so huge, but in reality they are so small.

Drip drip drip

Everything in nicely covered in refreshing water.

Beautiful Angel Abby asleep in her chair from 8-7-13.
Ping: It is still sad around our house,it's only Day 17 without
Abby, and Mom is doing the best she can. We know to be patient
with Mom. She loves all of us, but her heart just cries out for Abby.
We all do the best we can for our Momma. This is a long long journey we are all
on together and we'll continue onward but we can't help but miss
what is no longer here.
Purrful Blessings

  22. Oh Ping, those are such amazing close up pictures of the lovely flowers with the rain drops! You are quite handsome, too.

  23. The close ups of the flowers are beautiful.
    You are right Ping, it is a long journey, an unbearably long journey, but we do everything we can to help our Humans. Purrs to all of you.

  24. wonderful photos...Mom hasn't learned how to find her flower up close thingy yet...only had that camera for over a year...sigh

  25. Hi Ping, thanks for showing us your beautiful garden, we can see why you are so proud of it!

    Lovely photo of Angel Abby, we miss her too.

  26. Ping, you are so good to be gentle with your mom. It's very hard on humans to lose their heart kitties. Our mommy sobbed for a very very long time after losing Unca Ryker and we got lots of rainwater soft furs over that, too.

    You just keep hanging in there with her!

    And please tell her how VERY much we loved her note. It brightened our day!

  27. Simply wonderful photos! We keep purring for your mom to find peace, our hearts ache for her.

  28. Love the photos. The garden must have smelled so good after the rain.

  29. It took the Human a long time to look back on her life with Mr. Teeth with smiles and joy instead of with self-doubt and sadness, but it did happen. One day your Mom will probably feel more joy than sadness, but it's still early days. You kitties are doing a fantastic job taking care of her! There's nothing that purring doesn't ease a little bit.

  30. Such gorgeous pictures!!! I love how everything smells and looks after the rain :-)

  31. Beautiful pictures, Ping. You kitties are so wise to know that your Mama, and all of you, are on a long journey. We are sure she is very thankful for your love and understanding.

  32. The garden photos are exquisite. What a great idea to take the photos right after the rain. Thank you for showing us around, Ping. We know you are all giving Mom Debra extra love and affection, and you know she really appreciates it. It's just super hard for her to not be sad right now. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  33. Great photos. Mom is very talented and we wish she could give lessons to Dad. Some of his photos make us look like, well, dogs.
    Purrs to Abby furever and ever!


We always love hearing from you please leave some pawprints!
Happy purrs
