rain is a wondrous thing...

just look what it did to our place in the last week...
the rose of sharon is budding...

and the coleus are doing really good...

the day lilies are starting to open all over the place...

and I am here to tell you that container gardening is wonderful...

even though, I didn't need any help picking beans last night...
I got it anyway...
and I changed his name...
Hopper is now Mr Peebody...
I will explain later...

and here is what I cooked down last night, so today's supper is done...

more coleus...

here are the 3 big slicing tomato plants...
the sauce ones are on the other side...
I got them tied up a bit better while I was out there...

and we have baby tomatoes...

the watermelon is going crazy...
and this is those small seedless round ones, so I think they have time to make...

see, they are just opening up all over...

I want to wish my guy a happy 60th birthday today...
he didn't take the day off...
but we are taking him to get his driver's license in the morning and out for a birthday breakfast...
he picked taco bell...
he's easy...

now, for the name change...
Mr Peebody, FKA Hopper...
has this terrible habit...
he likes to watch you pee...
which, I know, a lot of cats do like to watch you when you are sitting there...
but this guy is strange...
he isn't just the kind of guy who just stalks, sits and watches...
he likes to help...
and jump on the toilet seat when you are going down...
and in the case this morning...
jumped right up on the toilet seat while Craig was peeing...
and Craig peed on his body...
because the first pee is the hardest (IMPOSSIBLE) to stop mid stream...
( I have not petted him since)
I knew this was going to happen sooner or later...
I have dibbled on him before...
but just a drop or two...
he didn't even seem to mind...
(NO we don't close our bathroom doors unless we have company)
because they are in separate ends of the house and mine is in my bedroom and around a corner...
but I have a feeling that is going to change...
the door shutting thing...
and Mr Peebody will have to just be happy with getting hit by the garden hose from here on out...
so, keep laughin' and head on down the road...
got things to do today and you need to get a move on!

Hi Tete,
Happy Birthday to your guy!! Hope he enjoys his Birthday breakfast tomorrow.
Look at the watermelon grow. Gorgeous garden you have and doing so well. I am just amazed about the cat trying to help everyone in the bathroom. I don't have cats so I was not aware they will do this. LOL!!Sounds like ya'll will have to sneak a pee!!! LOL
Have a nice weekend. cm

Tete, Your garden is looking so good. I can't believe you have had green beans already. Your cat is a funny cat. Our cat used to reach under the door as there was a clearance of about an inch...when there was carpet in the hallway. Blessings for a great weekend, and happy birthday to your husband. xoxo,Susie
