Potty project

Bloggie friends!!

I'm back!! And I can't wait to catch up with all your blogposts! 

Charlie says: Get thee away from me, Gummie boy!

Gumtree says: Okee-dokey!


Do you see all my pot plants? The crazy weather this past couple of months have near enough killed them all so my next big project of 2013 is to re-do them come Easter! And if I slacken I just know y'all give me a nudge, a wink and a virtual kick up the derriere to get a move on! :-)

Hoorah!

Have a great week!

Charlie is looking awfully mean there. He should be nicer to Gumtree. It's a shame about the plants but I hope you can fix them up.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

We won't let you slack - and we'll want photos.
Glad you are back, Kitty. Last Sunday felt empty without a post from you and a photo of Charlie and Gumtree.

klahanie said...

Ah Old Kitty,

Don't worry about catching up with my not worth reading site.

You be careful with those pot plants. Oh, not those kind of plants..oops :)

Now then, you get a virtual move on.

You two are looking mighty fine!

Stephen Tremp said...

Can you define"pot plants?"

Father Tom said...

No matter how badly potted plants are faring, they always look better amongst a cat or two :)

mshatch said...

Your kitties are so handsome! And how I wish I had more green in my house. All my porch plants are long dead :(

I hope you get yours sorted out.

Mr Puddy said...

The plants sound like " Die Hard " MOL
Good to see you back with Charlie and his friends
Happy 2013 to you : )

Helena said...

Welcome back! I missed you. And I hope you have a wonderful spring so that all your potted plants flourish so gloriously that Charlie will want to play among them with Gumtree.

DWei said...

Is it bad that at first I thought you were trying to potty train them?

Jay Paoloni said...

Charlie's right!
And I book a spot for that kick in the nether regions in case :)
Welcome back operative!

Teresa Ashby said...

Gorgeous picture - glad Gumtree is doing as Charlie tells him :-) x

Lynda R Young said...

Your pot plants look just like mine!!
Welcome back!

The Furries of Whisppy said...

Whoa! Gumtree is all grown up!

Patsy said...

I expect some of your plants will perk up in the spring, Kitty. Honestly, it's not that far away.

Natalie Aguirre said...

Glad you're back Kitty. I love when it gets warm enough to repot outside plants. Reminds me of spring.

Cezar and Léia said...

oh sorry about the plants, but I'm sure your gardening project will be a success! Love your picture, you both are adorable!
It's cold here in Belgium and I guess it's better to take long naps zzzzzzzzz

You're going to be busy!

Their Majesties look as regal as ever in that pic.

Fuzzy Tales said...

Nice to see you back. :-)

Easter will be here before we know it; I'm looking forward to seeing your newly potted plants, and lovely green shoots.

KarenMcG said...

We're glad to see you back as we were beginning to get concerned about your absence.

Gumtree is getting so big. Charlie seems to take it all in stride.

Theresa Milstein said...

Welcome back! I've missed your positive comments on my blog. My posts seem less sparkly.

How are those kitties getting along?

I always love seeing your plant photos during the nice weather. I'm sure you'll make them thrive just as much this year.

Gail Crane said...

Crazy weather indeed. Would you believe we still have a delphinium in flower!
Hope you manage to rescue your pots.

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Our plant pots are buried under snow. :(

Eek! I just noticed the date on your post. We're already half way through January. How did that happened?

Hannah and Lucy said...

Wow you are outside we are snow bound!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Clarissa Draper said...

That's too bad about your plants. It's been cold here too and so I hope my plants survive.

Esme said...

Wow-Gumtree is getting large-I am glad to have you back-we have been having quite the cold spell here in So. Cal also.

Bossy Betty said...

Glad to see you all here! Charlie! I want to go to your hairdresser. You always look so great!

Lydia Kang said...

Your plants look better than mine!

Rene said...

Wow, Gumtree is getting big! And sorry about your potted plants. :-/

Tamago said...

I hope your potty project will go well this time! The weather has been crazy here, too. It was unusually warm this weekend. It was nice, though to have a break from cold :-)
Have a great week!

Life 101 said...

The weather has been warm here so we took all our trees that winter inside out greatroom, outside for a vacation.
It got cold last night so we brought them back in. I think I saw them smiling.
Love your cats.

Michael Di Gesu said...

So glad to see you back....

Don'r worry, you're plants will be bursting out of their pots soon enough!


Enjoy your week too!

LTM said...

we've had some pretty wild weather here, too! You should see my sad little dead plants. But the biggest surprise to this little southerner is that after weeks of snow, when it all melts away, the grass is still green!

I feel like there's a metaphor there... :D

*scratches to Charlie & Gumtree*~

cleemckenzie said...

Everything in my yard is the same color: brown. However, due, to frosty weather, my cat has become lush with fur.

Carol Kilgore said...

You have a great week, too. Don't let me near your plants...my thumb is black.

Cole Cat said...

That looks like it might be a big project, but oh! The results will be so worth it! Stay toasty until then! Your garden-lovin' friends at Colehauscats.com

Julia Hones said...

Old, Kitty, there is a blog award for you on my blog, si come and take a peek! Hugs.

ABBY said...

We are so glad you are all back!
Our "winter" has been non existant. So our plants look ... fine. Well except they could use some water. :)

Maria said...

I'm looking forward to seeing them later in the year...and I'm wondering what you're going to put in them?

Jemi Fraser said...

Charlie looks most definitely in charge! Our pots are under a couple of feet of snow at the moment... :)

Beth Zimmerman said...

Awww such sweet kitties! Have fun gardening, Jenn!

Tammy Theriault said...

live plants! live! we have bad rains here in WA, our plants get very over watered!!

Medeia Sharif said...

I'm sure you'll revive your plants.

Welcome back.

fairyhedgehog said...

Hi Kitty! Your pussikins are looking good, even with a background of dispirited plants. My moggies don't like this weather at all!

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Old Kitty ... well Charlie sure knows how to scare Gumtree away ... and I guess you scare them both away when the pots are bursting and ready for some Easter colour ...

I just hope the weather improves and we have a normal seasonal year ...

Cheers to the three of you .. Hilary

Hart Johnson said...

Hey, you have no frozen stuff, so count yourself lucky. It rained this weekend and melted the snow, but now we are all frosty again. Charlie is so patient with Gumtree...

Soggibottom said...

CATNIP.... two cats I know would refer catnip and grass pleeeese...
Wouldn't yer guys ?

Maria McKenzie said...

Best of luck reviving your potted plants. I don't have a green thumb, so I don't even attempt to plant any!

Ann Carbine Best said...

Hi, dear friend. Just spent a few minutes catching up on the last 6 of your blog posts. It's always fun and relaxing to visit you! ongrats on all your writing achievements, and Jen and I wish you a VERY wonderful new year!!!

Jennifer Shirk said...

LOL! Love the caption.

I'm worrying about my plants in the ground. After the hurricane and flooding there was a lot of salt water on them. *biting nails*

Katie Isabella said...

HI Sweet Charlie! Kisses and loves to you. I have missed you. XXXOOO

meowmeowmans said...

So glad to see you back, friends! We sure hope those potted plants can be rejuvenated. In the meantime, you kitties are looking great. :)

Maria Perry Mohan said...

Hi Kitty,

Poor pot plants!

Optimistic Existentialist said...

The caption is totally awesome :)

Jayne said...

Oh how fine Charlie and Gummy are - how beautifully they prowl!
They will guard your plant pots with a loud and gusty meow!

(Where did that little poem come from?!)

Wendy aka Quillfeather said...

Consider your derriere kicked! That should get the ball rolling - right into Charlie and Gumtree's lap! :)

The Golden Eagle said...

I'm sorry to hear about your plants! Hope you'll show us what your re-done ones look like. :)

Timmy Tomcat said...

Glad you are back. Hi there Charlie and Gumtree!

Janet Johnson said...

The weather has been crazy, hasn't it? Even here on the other side of the pond. Good luck with your plants, and WELCOME BACK!! :)

Norma Beishir said...

Charlie obviously sees Gumtree as an interloper.

But he'll come to love him, I'm sure!

Maybe....

Eventually....

Okay, maybe not....

Gina Gao said...

You seem like your going to be busy. I'm glad your back.

KarenMcG said...

Gumtree is looking like she's coming right at you, oh you with the flashy box.

We're glad you're back.

Jenn Soehnlin said...

Can't wait to see your kitties playing among your beautifully blooming plants soon!

Welcome back! :)

Dawn Simon said...

Plants fear me. I'm not very good at keeping them alive. Good thing my husband does most of the yard work.

Charlie and Gumtree are so cute! Nice they have each other. :)

Purrfect Haven said...

.. it is always wonderful visiting you. Love Darcy, Bingley and Helen xxx

Betsy Brock said...

Oh, your beautiful kitties! I can't get over how much Gum looks like my Tiger! :)

You have such an amazing collection of planter pots! They will look wonderful by Easter, I just know it!

Jackee said...

I would be glad to. :o) I love plants. We're working on building a high tunnel right now. Charlie knows his place--older and wiser than Gum. :o)

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I'll also have a lot of gardening to do come spring. A tree fell over in my yard and needs to be chopped up and I will try to see if I can manage to grow basil and some herbs amidst the deer and rabbits that visit me. They may think of it all as a salad bar..lol!
