Hi Everyone! Welcome to our Thursday garden post, and the Thankful Fur Three bloghop!
So this week the garden is doing ok - some of the plants that should have sprouted didn't (which didn't surprise me since the seeds were more than a year old), so I decided to change them out. And the chives, well, the chives fell victim to someone pulling them out. So when they didn't come back, they were changed out too. The thyme isn't looking great, and it was the first to sprout (it isn't horrible though), but the mint is looking great. Below are some pictures of the cats while they were doing their inspections. I especially like the one of Stella looking at the camera like "mom I am busy" - it is a bit blurry but it was too cute not to post!! And there is a cute one of Barney that just makes him look like he is really enjoying smelling the plants - that was blurry too, but again, also cute! Oh, and if you are wondering about the box of trash bags in the background in the first picture, it is an attempt to keep the cats from jumping up and bothering the plants when I don't want them up there - it is to fill in the empty space behind the garden. It does work at least a little! This week it was Gus, Stella and Barney who were doing the inspection. I hope you like them - and don't forget to check out the bloghop portion below!
Before I get into the bloghop part, I wanted to let everyone know that I have still been having issues with blogger and reader, and it sounds like some of you are having similar problems. I am hoping that when I start to visit today they will be suddenly fixed, but I am not sure - so I will visit as much as I can!
Ok, here is the bloghop!
So,for those of you who either forgot or didn't know, Thankful Fur Three is the fun blog hop started by our friends at The Teacher's Pets It is pretty easy, and super fun - here are the guidelines, and the links for everyone participating are down below!
I like to keep things simple so here are the 3 guidelines FUR the blog hop:
1. To join in the Thankful Fur 3 Thursday, include your link in our list, follow the hostesses (The Teacher’s Pets and my lovely friend, Maggie Mae) in the first 2 spots and WE PROMISE TO FOLLOW YOU IN RETURN and then start blog hopping! Visit other blogs on the list and comment to give them some blog love. Then take a minute to follow them through Google Friend Connect – this is a good way to keep up with other blogs, but also lets us show support to each other! Please DO NOT list your giveaways here, links must be to either your homepage or your Thursday posting with your blog title. All others will be deleted.
2. When people comment on your blog and let you know they’re a part of Thankful FUR 3 Thursday, return the favor and follow them back. This way everyone gets traffic and followers out of participating, and it’s a win-win situation.

The more bloggers that find out about Thankful FUR 3 Thursday and participate, the better!
