Not ME!!!

not-me

Steinbeck, I told you to carefully listen.  We’ll have to make sure our stories are the same.

But is Mom going to be mad?

Not if we tell her this story.  Now listen.

I AM listening!

We’ll just tell her that we saw this beautiful flower and wanted to pick it for her and put it in a vase.

We have to put water in the vase first and I still don’t know how to make the water come out of the pipe thing.

Steinbeck, listen!  We’ll tell her we were going to pick the flower for her but we couldn’t get our paws around it right so it got a little scratched.

Okay….

From the Mom:  What are the boys plotting?  I hate it when they put their heads together ‘cuz I know full well they’ve done something wrong.  Here’s what I found:

hi-biscus

This is what I call my “HI Biscus” and I noticed this morning that it was blooming.  I was going to get a picture of it but I was already late.  So, I was determined to take a picture when I got home.  This is what I found.  Seems some kitties were using it as a scratching post!  Of course neither one will take the blame!

The Tale of Us and Flowers

Mom gets a little upset with us ‘cuz she can’t have fresh-cut flowers in the house.

We like to pull them out of the water.

Well, and sometimes we accidentally knock the vase over and water goes running all over the place!

We try to soak it up with our tails so Mom won’t know, but somehow she always knows!

That’s a Mom for you!

So, she took us around the yard and showed us that we have our very own flowers!

Mom calls this one a HI biscus.  She’s always saying “HI” to it when it blooms.

There are lots of little Mr. Hemingway petunias out there.  I wonder if they have white paws.

Well, I like mine ‘cuz there’s lots of them!
