Wish List Wednesday

Wish List Wednesday

The PM got the seed catalogues out and I was very busy snoopervising. This is the exciting part of Spring approaching. The stress, mud, weeds, crying fits and threatening to bring in a bulldozer all come later. But for now, the PM plans and orders seeds and bulbs, envisioning a Eden like oasis come mid summer.

This is all I want. Nepeta, nepeta, sweet intoxicating nepeta.

I would like a whole field of it, in which to roll, frolic, chew and mangle. The Nanny transplanted some nip for us last year but it is Shade who really likes it. If They wanted to find us last summer, Shade was usually reclining under the nip and I was in the veggie patch with the catmint. The PM bought 9 plants last year but had to put them with the veggies until this year. She is going to try and trick me by moving 8 plants and leaving one. She thinks I will be happy with that one and leave the others alone. Think again PM!!! I think if I have a LARGE plot with the veggies for my mint, I will be happy. Maybe...

Is Nepeta, catnip? Or is it something else that I don't know about yet. Maybe this kind won't give me the ill effects I had recently with the inferior nip mom bought. This is very interesting to me. I will have to ask mom to grow me some......I wonder if it grows well in Texas?

Your PM sounds like our Mommy - dreams of a grandeur for the garden!

Mommy planted some catmint in the woofie's area, so we've never gotten to try it - maybe we can convince her this year.

We didn't know what Nepeta was so mum googled it furr us. She is going to order some plant plugs to grow in the garden furr us. She needs to get on wiv her garden but it has been too wet.
