Momo's Glad-iola that is. I had this really pretty gladiola in front of my house. Before it bloomed, Pandabonium almost pulled it out while weeding. I'm glad he didn't. I'm also glad he got a picture of it before that typhoon came and broke it in two. Oh, well, like Uncle Robin says, "all things are impermanent" (especially food in my dish).
I don't know what that bush is with the lavender flowers, but I dug a hole under it and like to hide there sometimes. Don't tell PandaB, he gets grumpy at me if he finds out I've been digging a hole.
Some weird plants in the yard are the eggplants PandaB is growing in big pots. He says eggplant originally came from India, then were grown by the Chinese, and only later showed up in Italy and other places. I wonder if Reena in India cooks eggplant? I don't eat eggplant, I'd rather have meat in my dish.
There are also a couple of kinds of tomatoes. These are cherry tomatoes.
Oh, and a zucchini. He's got some lettuce and carrots sprouting now too. And peppermint, and wild strawberries. I like it when he comes out to work with the plants or do weeding and stuff, because he lets me off the tether and I get to run around the yard. He also plays with me a lot then. So even though veggies don't interest me, I'm glad he's growing them.
K has some plants too. Here's K's parsley plant.
And her rosemary bush is really WILD. Smells good too.
One more flower to show you. It's over by the mailbox. See? I have my name on the mailbox, so if you send me a postcard I'll get it. :P
This flower is K's too. It's a hibiscus. Pandabonium says they have lots of these in Hawaii and Fiji. I see some around this neighborhood too, but not as pretty as K's.
I like all the flowers in summer, and the wild grass by the road, which I like to lick or chew. Grass by the side of the road is called "michikusa" in Japanese. The word has come to mean "dilly-dally", which is just what Pandabonium says I do.
Well, time for a nap. Jaa ne. (Later).
