I have seen so many of you out there posting wonderful garden photos. Believe me,I wish I was posting them right along with you! You see, I have the heart of a gardener. I love to grow things,any things! Food for my family, flowers even cactus! I have nothing to post about gardening or anything green. First of all the drought has ended any hope of flowers this year.Oh,I keep the struggling plants alive by watering them but there are no masses of flowers.This time of year,even on a good year,there is not much that can take the heat here in South Texas in the ole veggie patch. Okra and purple hull peas make it but that is about it. Soon I will be starting some tomato seedlings for the Fall garden. Some of you may be thinking ,wow two gardens a year! It is not so "wow". First off to get a spring crop of tomatoes we start seedlings in December to have big enough plants at last frost to put out so that they will set fruit before it is too hot. Also, there is no succession planting. It just gets hot too quick. There is no harvesting green beans all Summer, I am grateful for the one picking I get. Same in the Fall. I have to get stuff planted as soon as it cools a little and hope it was soon enough for it to make before frost. It is challenging to say the least! So instead of green I will give you gray...in the form of Oscar Peterson!
This is his come hither look! Come hither and pet me ,which happens to be the only look he has! That is about all Oscar does,he has a very laid back personality!
Yes,little Oscar really has only one passion in life! He wants to be petted 24-7! His second love would be napping. He only wakes up if he thinks there might be an opportunity to get some petting!
Oh well,I guess I can't hold his lack of mousing skills against him. After all, he makes up for it with sweetness!
