Hey Wilmer! You Missed a Spot!

Posted by F&S

Martha’s blog today is all about the terrace garden and how it needed to be pruned back into shape.  We Frenchies were making our usual rounds of the farm and decided to inspect how Ryan and Wilmer were progressing with the terrace.  Good thing we did because we found something amiss.

Francesca, do you see what I see?  Wilmer and Ryan have been working hard trimming the terrace garden, but it looks like they forgot to cut this patch of teucrium!

Wilmer!  Sharkey and I aren't trying to nitpick, but you missed a spot!  The rest of the terrace looks so nice.  We wouldn't want you to forget this little section!

Wilmer, do you know what makes flowers of the teucrium species interesting?

The flowers in this species do not have an upper lip of the corolla, or a top petal.  It gives them an unusual shape.

Now Wilmer, make sure you are only cutting the teucrium here!  The heat has caused the flowers to wilt and we need the plants to be healthy, as they attract many bees for pollination!

Martha doesn't want you to cut the nepitella on the corner here.  Nepitella is a culinary herb that grows wild in Italy.  It tastes like a cross between mint and oregano.  It also attracts butterflies!

Wait Francesca, let me see.  Move over, I just want to make sure Wilmer is doing a good job!

Oh Wilmer, are we being total pains?  You know we like to be involved in every aspect of the farm!

Wilmer, you're such a good sport to not let our nagging get to you!  We just want the farm to look beautiful!

I guess we should let Wilmer take over and use his own judgement on this one.  Francesca, let's go find GK and see what he's up to and leave Wilmer be!

  • Hello girls,
    You know, we see Wilmer and Ryan a lot in your posts and I for one would appreciate it if you girls would relay a message to the two of them. Please tell them that I think they are very smart, they know so much about the plants and vegetables that grow on the farm and they are very hard working guys. They are a huge asset to Martha and they do a fantastic job of making everything look spectacular at the farm. Maybe you girls should write to the mayor of your town and ask him to have a Ryan and Wilmer Day. Martha could have a Meet and Greet day for them to celebrate. Oh, the ideas that come out of my furry fat head. I better stop thinking. I don't want to get dizzy
    I will check back with everyone in the morning. I want to talk to my Glue Squad buddies about things that have been going on with them. I have been a bit neglectful in that area but I was so worried about our Cora-Belle that I couldn't think too much about other things. My bad. I think Zoe is just real busy taking care of her mom and dad right now and I think Chloe is in solitary confinement somewhere for digging craters in her yard. Hehehehehe
    Love to all,
    Maddox

  • Oh, oh. Think I hit enter instead of shift. LOL
    Lets try this again!
    Good morning everybody,
    Ladies, you're not a bother, you are giving moral support to Ryan and Wilmer!
    I'll check in later to see what everyone is up to.
    Your pal,
    Rebel

  • Good Morning F & S

    OMG no time for blogging mom has been so busy at work. I feel like I've been away forever!!

    F & S I think you should leave the trimming to Wilmer. I'm sure he does a very good job with Martha looking over his shoulder.

    No surgery date yet for dad still waiting on doctors to review tests. I'm all ready to take care of him I've been practicing up on my nursing skills. Mom is very anxious the waiting makes her crazy and add that to the fact that dad is acting like this procedure is similar to a tooth being pulled and she is one nut case right now!

    The update on Choloe is that her family is on vacation and she went to spend a week with her trainer for a refresher course. I personally think it's a waste of time because she is still bad, not like me a well behaved dog ;)

    Mom is taking today off she is spending the day with the girls. Of course this girl wasn't invited but my feelings aren't hurt I'll just find some TP :) She is going to the beach with her mom, sister and my buddy Nicole. I will miss the cheese curls but in a way I'm glad I'm not going the heat index today is going to be 103 - leave me with the air condititioner please.

    Have a great day Glue Squad :)

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    That’s all right Rebel, my big paws always hit the “enter” key and I have to then find the “backspace” key. As much as that happens, you would think I could remember where that backspace is. Being a dog isn’t easy sometimes. Take yesterday as an example. Mommy and Daddy had visitors yesterday. One of them had a crutch. Mommy explained to me that it wasn’t a club and it helped the guy walk. I was alright with that but then I thought that I would take advantage of the visitors. That didn’t work and I had to put on the “cone” in front of them. That wasn’t much fun; maybe I should leave my teal alone visitors or no visitors.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Morning Girls, Great job overseeing Wilmer & Ryan, I'm sure they appreciate your point of view making sure that everything gets trimmed nicely.

    Zoe, good to hear from you - enjoy the a/c today while the girls do their thing. Good thing you updated us on Chloe - refresher course, bet she is just loving that ;) . My last training class is on Sunday..hope I get my certificate seeing the last couple of classes I was a little challenging; but did finally settled in and listened to my trainer & Mom - distractions get me every time.

    Another hot day and taking in all the a/c possible. Just waiting patiently for the weather to break for drier air this weekend.

    Hi to all Glue Squad!

    Till next time,

    Missy Chow

  • Kitty here! F&S this reminds me when mommie delia works in the yard, I am always by her side to make sure she is doing everything correct...Good thing Wilmer and Ryan are kind enough to not get upset for suggestions...delia doesn't like being told what to do in the yard, daddie al has to take instructions on what to cut and what not to cut...trust me he has had his ears bent a few times. ;-)

    Got to run and say by-by to mommie and daddie they are headed to UW for delia's doctor appointment.

    Kitty =^. .^=

  • Hello afternoon! F & S you two are always the best little helpers. Good to hear from Cora-belle being such a good girl taking care of Lucinda. I understand being crazy busy like your Mom Zoe. Everyone have a great day! :smile:

  • Hello Ladies & Glue Squad,
    Had some appointments with my hubbie this morning at the bank and now can settle in to the important things...---the Daily Wag and all my buddies. F & S you are such good assistants to Wilmer and Ryan. I am sure they educate you and you in turn educate us. Everything in Mama's garden and yard looks perfect. You are very lucky to have such a nice home. I am glad you are back Cora Belle and Zoe. Lucinda, glad you are up to your old self again and Zoe, hope all goes well with Dad. Kirby, maybe you can hide the cone somewhere, like a hole in the backyard, that Chloe can dig. Glad to hear your day is going well, Rebel, Dudley and Missy Chow. I will check back later to see how all the rest are fairing. Maddox, take care of yourself that you don't get too dizzy, but we love your ideas. Hope things are quieting down for Abby with the boarders and Pam, know you are in my thoughts and prayers for missing the Bos. Herman the white cat and Basil are introducing her around the Bridge right now, I know. Oh, and a lilac persian, James Dean is---how very cool. I never knew there was such a color of a cat. Is this rare? I am sure Tracy has talked to each and every one since she is our in Glue Squad Cat Whisperer. Have a great, cool, day all. I am off to clean bathrooms--yucko!!!!
    Hugs & smiles,
    Lynn

  • ..Hi frenchies, I too, help with all the outdoor and indoor projects..nothing would get done properly without me, I am sure of that!!...Delia, hope all goes well at the dr. office, Zoe, James is just like your dad, all medical procedures..no big deal., drives us nuts!!.a crutch now that is interesting..I would have tried to gnaw on it...i was rolling around on the living room floor and let out a big yelp..twisted the wrong way..wow..you should have seen Lucinda come running..bad back or not my pal bend down to check me out...I'm okay..Guess what, this a.m, at our local store, Lucinda saw three big chows pop out of a RV, said she rushed over and said hi..they were going to Wa. Coast to be cool for a week..the chiweenies saw them, too, I stayed home with James..the chiweenies are seat hogs, besides I needed some alone time...thinking about going down the driveway..over and out, Cora-Belle...p.s. if anything exciting happens I will check back

  • ..wow..an adventure..off I went down the driveway..Lucinda and James and Chiweenies( are they ever going home?) watching me from the window (pretending they are not watching) and I get half way and a loaded county gravel truck is coming down our drive to a turn around ..yikes..I can't see but i continue on..of course Lucinda and James are freaking out..I still continue on..you see the county workers are my buddies..so this huge tuck comes to a stop..out pops a guy I don't know and he is looking around..like where did I come from..Lucinda and james and chiweenies are racing ( as fast as two old people can go) down the driveway..by that time the driver and I are sharing a snack and he is waiting for James and Lucinda..seems he'd been told an old cattle dog roams around sometimes..it was cool..but i heard talk of no more drive way walks alone unless the gate at the end is locked..spoil sports!!! later Cora-Belle the explorer
