My daughter CatzandAllDatz AKA , CCL(Crazy Cat Lady) has a beautiful front yard garden. As her mom, I am a bit anal when it comes to yards and I must admit I did not share CCL’s vision when early this summer she and a group of the neighborhood children planted the garden. To me the “garden” appeared to be a mishmash of mums, ground plants and flowers. Where, I would ask CCL (often), is the theme? Why didn’t you just put down grass? , I would say each time I paid a visit. Where , I would ask, is the structure? When, I would ask CCL, are you going to put down more mulch? Soon the rain came, the sun did its work and CCL had mulch put down in between the flowers and plants. Now a living piece of art graces my daughter’s front yard. Isn’t life sometimes like that? A series of unseemingly related events comes together with human inspiration and God’s touch and voila! Faith brings us bouquets.

I’m at my mom’s house this week, looking after sis and caring for mom’s plants, house etc. Don’t worry Roxie and Jean Claude are guarding my house (with help from CCL and assorted friends, family etc.). You may recall the blog I wrote last summer (Planticide- July 18, 2010). I described a giant plant in my mom’s living room that fell over and its pot broke into hundreds of pieces. Yes mom rescued a piece of the plant and put it in water and then repotted it. Well here it is folks one year later complete with scales and four-foot branches. I’m just waiting for it to say “Feed Me” circa “Little Shop of Horrors,” the 1960 movie which featured Jack Nicholson.
