Cat Damages

So I came home from work today and checked the recent transplants to see how they were doing. I can no longer fit the strawberries and the kiwis and grow house together so the kiwis were to the side but bordered to prevent the cats from getting into them.  They were fine when I got home.  Not 30 minutes after I got home though the cats had chewed the kiwi and at some point got into the strawberries. See how pretty they are now...(Sarcasm) And see how I safe guarded the kiwis after they got ate.

I transplanted my strawberries, kiwis, maple tree, and the purple hyacinth vine that finally sprouted.  They are all looking fantastic. The maple I brought inside and it seems to be doing well.

In a previous posting, I put a picture of a maple tree that sprouted in my lily pot.  I've put it in another little pot for now and am going to try to bonsai it.  From what I've read, bonsai-ing a maple tree may not be too hard.  Basically There is is special soil that can be bought.  The pot used at first should be small, its a training pot.  You trim the roots too, but not the big main one.  Keep it watered of course and give it sunlight.  We'll see how this comes along.  Gotta find a pot for it and pick up some soil.

One is a tree of some sort: 

The other is some sort of flowing plant...

While I was moving...

My husband and I moved to Clarksville, TN at the end of February.  While we were finishing up and cleaning one day, my husband grabbed my plants in the greenhouse and put them in his car.  I later noticed where they were. 
Plants in the rear window of the car.


So I just found pinterest... amazing!  I will be working it in with the blog and posting a lot on there as well.  It's really brought a lot of traffic already, in just a day.
