Digging Up Some Dirt #WafflesWednesday

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss, why is Glogirly playing in her litterbox? 


KATIE:  Waffles, that's not a litter box. She's working on landscaping the front of the house. 


WAFFLES:  I don't know, Boss. That's a LOT of dirt. And she's digging around in it like she has to go or something. 

KATIE: Seriously, Waffles. I sincerely doubt Glogirly is going to use her new flower bed as a, well... you know.


WAFFLES:  She's squatting, Boss! She's squatting! 

KATIE:  Pretty sure she's planting, Waffles. 

WAFFLES:  Now she's covering up something!


WAFFLES:  This landscaping stuff looks pretty suspicious if you ask me.


KATIE:  Well, it's a good thing I didn't ask you.


Digging Up Some Dirt
Now that the summer weather has moved in, Glogirly has apparently caught a landscaping bug. When we moved into our new mountain house, the front was a little lacking in terms of curb appeal. Ok, so there are no curbs out here. But there was plenty of room for improvement. Glogirly drew up some ideas then consulted a local expert in native plants and high elevation gardening. Enter her new friend, Tom, from Native Nursery in Golden, CO. Tom stepped in to help Glogirly select beautiful and colorful plantings that will thrive at 8,300'. He even made a trip up the canyon road to deliver everything and help position the plants. All 85 of them. (!)

And he loves cats. So we love Tom.

Glogirly is putting the finishing touches on everything and will share photos soon! She's pretty excited because this is her first-ever project like this. She's lived in condos and townhomes for as many years as she can remember, so her landscaping adventures didn't stray far from a potted geranium.

Now she's got cool sounding plants with names like Little Trudy Catmint, First Love Dianthus and Little Devil Ninebark. Don't worry, it doesn't really bark.

  2. Wow! What a cool gardening adventure! My human has lived in houses since 1989, and the last time she had any interest in gardening was... about 1994. And it shows with this house. I'm glad you are not like my human!

  4. It sounds so cool to have that much elevation and still to be able to landscape. Even the smallest of plants can have a massive amount of kerb appeal, especially around litter boxes... er... sorry, around flower beds.
