a mauve thursday



at a loss for mauve ideas, b & c ignored the problem (and the wierd mauve stake obviously), and started getting this years vege garden going...


left to my own devices and after a good sniff around, i have come to the conclusion that my garden should be classified as code mauve... translated... a furry dangerous situation...


"spring is sprung, the grass is riz, so I wonder where the 'poison' iz?"...

hey b... what you planting? beans, carrots, capsicums (dilated pupils, tremors, and heart arrhythmias), chilis, heirloom tomatoes (hypersalivation, inappetence, severe gastrointestinal upset, diarrhea, drowsiness, CNS depression, confusion, behavioral change, weakness, dilated pupils, slow heart rate), cucumbers, eggplant (abdominal pain, convulsions, difficulty breathing, diarreah, vomiting, convulsions, weakness, incoordination, collapse)


any nice flowers in the garden at the moment b? we've got the last of the daffodils (vomiting, salvation, diarrhea; large ingestions cause convulsions, low blood pressure, tremors and cardiac arrhythmias. bulbs are the most poisonous part), and some nice lavender...



and wisteria (vomiting (sometimes with blood), diarrhea, depression)


oh... and a lovely mauve hibiscus (vomiting, diarrhea, nausea, anorexia)


we just planted some cornflowers too...


and echinops...



and we will sow some white and green echinacea, black hollyhock and phacelia soon...


while on my operation mauve mission, i came across some furry helpful info...


cocoa mulch... bad, bad, bad (fatal)

slug and snail bait also bad, bad, bad (tremors and seizures) you gotta use nontoxic gardening products or use bits of cardboard as a great snail trap - the slugs and snails gather under it for a party then you just pluck them off into a container and pour boiling water on them (fatal) don't forget to shove them back into the garden cos they are a great compost activator...


if your pet is a doofus and has eaten a plant that may be toxic, don’t waste any time trying to induce vomiting... ring mr vetty immediately!

and finally an interesting article on mauve... seems mauve is coming back... mauve is the past; the future is mauve.

the next colour for blue's true colour challenge is gonna be gold...ooh that could get me going!

So much good sniffing this time of the year for you. Ours is giving way to fall, soon to be covered with snow.

Scritches to Sir Doyle.

We love coming to your blog on true colors Thursday especially! You always have such an interesting take on that particular color for the week!
We want to think you for the link that you posted for us. Maggie does have a harness already with a handle and she also has one of those sling things with handles at both ends that goes under her tummy but we haven't had to use either one of them yet. She's doing better now that she's home - not so much vacation activity!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Dad LOVES rose from dr. who like a whole lot. I suspect Tanner must have ate a LOT of plants before he came to live with us. lol.

Clever, clever, clever!

Am a Dr Who fan, so wondered where you were going with the first image.
The photo's are lovely, the warnings very valid.

Love, pats & pets

Hey guys, joe stains' mom here. Joey was 6 when we got Tanner so he was set in his ways pretty well. I think Doyle is definitely a great age for another dog!
