We love pumpkins and gourds!

Posted by Francesca

All of a sudden the weather turned cold.  Sharkey and I put on our warm jackets and went outside to see what was new in the world.  We were so happy to find that many pumpkins and gourds had been arranged for decorations.  We love pumpkins and Martha grows many unusual varieties.  Come and take a look and see what we found lurking about!

Oh goody!  Martha and Shaun must have picked all of these pumpkins and gourds from the pumpkin patch.  We just love this time of year!

It's that fluff ball, Vivaldi.  What does he think he's doing?

  • Hi Gals,

    I dig your pumpkins.

    I guard my pumpkins on my porch too,not just from cats but all sorts of animals here in the farm area where I live.

    Your jackets are mighty fancy,to hot here to wear here it was nearly 90 degrees yesterday. I have a built in jacket ha! Better get to carving those pumpkins before Halloween!

    Off to watch I Love Lucy with my Mama a funny episode is on about Lucy and Ethel going into the chicken raising business, they could have really used your Mama Martha's chicken smarts lol!

    Happy & safe weekend Sharkey , Franny & blogger friends.

    Until next time,
    Mrs. Bosley Chow Chow

  • Looking sharp in your jackets ladies! The pumpkins look like bunches of fun :-)

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    It looks as if you are having a gourd, I mean good, time there. I see that you are having some cool weather up north. It’s beginning to cool down here; expecting a cold front to pass this weekend. It should only be in the high 50’s on Saturday. All I can say is that cat’s have to be watched all the time. I try to keep an eye on the neighborhood cats as much as I can. Daddy doesn’t like them climbing on his truck; scratches the pant he says. I guess if he didn’t keep it waxed, they wouldn’t slide on it and extend their claws. Hope you have a gourd weekend. he he he
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • F & S - great pictures. How can anyone think that we Frenchie's are not just the cutest little things - we have such great faces. I just think I'm adorable :)

    I have pumpkins out on my front porch with bails of hay, corn stalks and some scarecrows, mom made it look really nice. Some times I forget they are scarecrows and I start barking like crazy thinking they are intruders - silly me.

    I wish I lived where Mrs Bosley Chow Chow lives it sounds nice and warm. It's getting cold here, my sweaters are unpacked and Mom has our heat on which by the way I just love. I sit on top of the vent in the kitchen and just snuggle up.

    Hey, how come Martha lets Vivaldi out doors? Aren't the cats suppose to stay inside? You need to stand your ground and chase that little hair ball back inside where it belongs. Don't tell anyone I said this but it is a pretty cat. How are those 2 little hair balls doing that just moved in?

    Have a good weekend everyone. And Shoeboy - where are you????

  • Hi Sweeties,
    You two are just too cute for word! Kisses and have a fun weekend guarding those gourds! You are Martha's little watch dogs.

  • Hello Ladies,
    You two are absolutely correct. That kitty belongs in catnip, not YOUR pumpkins. They certainly are a beautiful crop this year. That warty one is really cool. And of course getting back into the coat season is needed. You look great. I still think you should market your own line of coats and sweaters and maybe give some of the money to those animal charities Dr. Phia talks abaout. With your celebrity statis you would go far. Have a great weekend all. I am taking care of Mom this time--a bit of a cold.
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Oh Francesca and Sharkey those winter jackets are darling! and all those gorgeous Pumpkins and Gourds...love how Vivaldi just gets in there not intimidated by you two...love those colorful photos of you two sweet pups...thanks for sharing.
    mommie delia set out the cushy Igloo with the microwave heatpad, and the heated water bowl...everything to make my time outside comfortable in the winter, of course I could stay inside at all times, but I still like making the rounds as a fixed feral cat.
    have a great weekend everyone! a tiny meeuw from Kitty...

  • You two look like little canine super heroes in pictures 3 and 5. Just lure Vivaldi away with some of that catnip that he loves so much. :wink:

    Everyone have a wonderful and safe weekend!

  • Frannie-n-Sharkey, you two are absolutely PRECIOUS! I just want to scoop you both up in my arms and hug you and hold you tight! You are sooo dear!

    Franniebrindle, your little pumpkin-colored jacket is the p-e-r-f-e-c-t color on you, especially on a chilly autumn day, and Sharkeybarkey, that muted color of green is v-e-r-y becoming, too, with your blonde hair!

    You know, girls, I DO love my kittiekitties (equally as much as puppiedoggies just like you) but I don't really think little Vivaldi means any harm! It's okay, though, that you stood your gourd - I mean your ground (I tend to be silly at times [ALL of the time!] just like you)...that's just a characteristic that puppiedoggies have, that's all. You're just protecting what you think is yours.

    My little Mandy has some mewsings today that she wants to share with you and your fans, so stay tuned for those, okay?

  • Bpppupmrrrow. Happy fall, y'all! You two is sooo bootiful in yer wittle jackets-n-all... Mommie was talkin' 'bout how coot you was, 'n again, I t'ought she was talkin' 'bout mrrreee!

  • Aww so cute you two. You look like you are having such fun among all the different pumpkins and gourds!

    Everyone have a good week-end...

  • Sweeties you are so so adorable. I love u
    muaaaaa

  • Hi Girl Friends, Sorry to be so late commenting on your blog. We had a busy weekend and I went for a nice sunny walk yesterday and then went shopping at Kmart to get some of the last Martha products available. Those pumpkins and gourds sure look beautiful and so does Vivaldi. I would love to play with him and both of you. Maybe someday you will become more tolerant of cats and learn to have fun playing with them. Love, Dudley Do Right
