The Hardest Part

Sometimes waiting is the hardest part. But remember, Mr. Bowie, the catnip that grows slower bear the greatest fruit! Just relax and enjoy the sun. The future’s so bright, you probably gotta wear shades.

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

He’s Back!

Finally! Mr. Bowie’s back… but actually, he was never gone. Guess he was only trying to keep a low profile. Right now Mr. Bowie’s looking forward to spring and summer, just like the rest of us in this part of the world. He’s right on top of the really important issue: getting the garden ready for new catnip plants! He has become a real expert on harvesting, storing and drying catnip. I wonder if I should give up my career as a musician and get started into the catnip business…

In the next post, we’ll talk about “eastern European gangs of thieves” and how Mr. Bowie deals with it.

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

Go Wild!

Let your imagination go wild! Okay, I still have a pretty active imagination, but it is nothing like the imagination of Mr. Bowie. This card from Sharon is an awesome way to stimulate our imagination. Mr. Bowie is intrigued by the bird and the catnip plant. I got my eyes fixed on the snare drum. Let your imagination run wild, my friends.

Last Friday

IMG_7647

Summer is here to stay. What an upbeat mood I’m in today! Last Friday was the warmest day of the year so far, with temperatures near 34 degrees Celsius (93 Fahrenheit). It was a perfect day for ice cream and banana milkshake. Mr. Bowie looked a bit upset because he got purified water instead of catnip ice cream.

Don’t Mess With…

Don’t mess with the bull… Blackbirds are usually welcome in the garden, until they become a nuisance. Besides making an ugly mess of things, they must stay out of the catnip plantation. Mr. Bowie must send out a very tough and unequivocal signal and must take action.

“Don’t mess with the catnip, you’ll get the claws.” – Mr. Bowie

Blooming

It’s springtime. The garden is coming to life again, with many beautiful things blooming. Yeah! It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Come and celebrate the sunshine with Mr. Bowie.

Meanwhile, Mr. Bowie’s checking out all the plant to see if they are related with Nepeta cataria, a species of the genus Nepeta in the Lamiaceae family, commonly known as catnip.

It’s a Miracle

It’s alive! Much to my and Mr. Bowie’s surprise, one catnip plant is alive! Meteorologists knew an eclipse could lower temperatures within this shadow by as much as 3 degrees Celsius (5 degrees Fahrenheit). But so far, they couldn’t confirm anecdotal reports of changes in dead catnip plants. Catnip die-hards, like Mr. Bowie, are eager to test fresh plants.
