Is It Safe?

Safety check. Ensuring that the garden area is safe after the gardeners team left requires careful planning and monitoring. Materials such as sand and wood chips are soft enough to fall asleep. Provide some shade, cool water and treats in the play space, and an espresso machine for the human. Keep children and other little creatures safe indoors.


Thank goodness forecasters say summer is here to stay!



Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

PS: The catnip plants are in a safe place.

  1. Mr. Bowie is a good inspector. Looks like everything is in order. If Mr. Bowie likes catnip, he would go wild at our place since we have forests of it. We let in get tall, gangly, and go to seed β€” the birds love catnip seeds. I wonder if the birds get off on it like the cats?

    • Haha… a catnip forest! I believe Mr. Bowie is booking his ticket right as we speak… I didn’t know birds loved the seeds of catnip. And yes, it make me wonder too how birds feel after eating those seeds… πŸ˜‰
      Our plants are small and we keep them in pots so we can hide them if the police should check out our place… πŸ˜‰

    • Bowie was na 5 dagen binnen niet meer te houden. Als een jong veulen rende hij door de tuin…
      Gelukkig blijft het zomeren en kunnen we nog profiteren van het goede weer. Bowie is daarnet om 23u pas naar binnen gekomen… πŸ™‚

    • Thank you, Lavinia! Mr. Bowie says “Meow!”
      I’m very happy the garden looks beautiful again. Thank goodness I got a great gardeners team, and the guys like my chocolates and espressos too… πŸ˜‰

    • Thank you, Boomdee! You know, big machines and big cats go together well…
      Mr. Bowie always follows your advice, my dear. πŸ˜‰

    • Thank you, Sharon! That is our favourite spot to relax in the evening. And enjoy some extra treats, of course… πŸ™‚

  2. Any cat would be happy in your wonderful garden spaces. That last picture with Mr. Bowie at the bench and the light filtering in, that’s amazing. Happy rest of the summer!

  3. Mr. Bowie you are a VERY good garden monitor my friend because your garden looks spectacular. I know they were using some noisy machinery but just look how GRAND it is now and you can cruise around there and know that things are “ship-shape” !! Enjoy…….I hope you made a quick stop at your catnip plant for a snack as you walked around????

    Hugs, Sammy

    • Hi Sammy! Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” and wants to let you know that the catnip plants are ok… He’s having a wonderful time outside with warm and sunny weather. I think I’m going to join him with an espresso and some fine dark chocolate… πŸ˜‰

      • So glad to hear that the catnip plants are doing well……and I hope the two of you enjoyed a sunny day together. Mom and I often do that too on our front porch…….life sure can be mighty fine. We send you and Mr. Bowie a Monday morning hug!

        Love, Sam

  4. Such a beautiful garden, Herman! I am sure Mr. Bowie inspected everything, and no catnip plant was left without proper care. Handsome Mr. Bowie in a beautiful garden – a picture of perfection!
    Wishing you two a warm and sunny September.
