An Early Spring Walk Through the Gardens

 First, I would like to thank all of you for your suggestions for Teddy's poor paw.  Sedation is not an option for Teddy. Sedation makes Teddy very mean.  When she starts to feel loopy, she will bite anyone that comes near her. Been there, done that one time too many times and it is an awful experience. Unless you have had a chow, it is hard to understand how stubborn they can be. You can not make them do something they don't want to. No amount of treats or baby talk works.  I am making an appointment with the vet and my husband and I will visit him and discuss the situation. You all gave me lots of good input!

 Hey Teddy, do you want to check out the gardens and look for bad kitties? 

 This time of the year a bad kitty can be spotted a mile away.

Teddy surveys her domain.
 Only the earliest signs of Spring can be seen, a few crocuses here and there.

 Tulips peeping up.

 Lady's Mantle.

 Daffodils.

 Fish!  The fish made it through the winter.  I was sure they would be floaters.

 And just to the right of the Rhubarb stake, the rhubarb.

 Chives.

 Garlic.

 Why don't you get a drink Teddy?

 Don"t drink a fish. It would be horrible to survive this winter and then end up in a chow chows stomach.

 Does that water taste fishy?

 Blue tongue alert.  Click for a closer look.

 Don't drink the whole pond.

 Ummm...I think I have a bit of work to do at the gazebo.

Looking down the creek which will soon be flowing.
