We bet you didn’t know that the dad-guy owns a garden center, did you??  Today for Garden Day, we’re gonna take you to his garden center and show you around!

The place is brimming with flowers this time of year!!

And there’s fountains and other things
that mom calls “lawn accoutrements.”

This is the gazebo in the back.  Some of you may remember that Zoey was found as a kitten here at the garden center.  One of her favorite places to hide was under this gazebo.

This is Scarlett…the dad-guy’s African Gray parrot.  She lives at the garden center because mom’s afraid that if she lived at our house, she might hurt us!!  She’s got one powerful sharp beak!!

And she talks up a storm!!  The dad-guy says she can bark like a dog, meow like a cat and can even order pizza over the phone!!  She entertains all the customers!! 

We hope you enjoyed visiting the garden center
and seeing all the flowers and plants!!
(Jonesie would love it here!)

  1. We loves the garden center, what a neat place. And the cat lawn accoutrements are too cute.

  2. I had no idea the dad owned a garden centre! You learn something new every day.

  3. Oh my cats we had no idea your Dad owned a garden shop. It is just beautiful…everything blooming all the beautiful garden art and Scarlett is the mascot. She is very beautiful. We agree with Mom Scarlett probably would not appreciate kitty sense of humor and we hear that parrots are kind of in tuned to just one human.
    thank you for the garden tour,
    Madi and Mom

  4. wow those flowers are so beautiful!Thanks so much for this fabulous sweet post!
    Wonderful tour!

  5. WOW! Wot a fabulous garden centre! Mom said are those Sweet Williams on the top photo? She loves Sweet Williams.
    We had no idea that Zoey was found at the garden centre! Was she abandoned by sumbuddy or feral?
    Anyway thanks for a wonderful tour.

  6. What a fantastic garden centre! Love that gazebo. Scarlett is a very pretty girl!

    Thanks for the tour! 🙂

  7. We had no clue about any of this! Our mom says that if we lived near you she would be over there all the time – it looks heavenly!

  8. Oh dear, our Mom is so jealous that your Dad owns a garden center. That is so exciting. Just think about having access to all those flowers. What a lot of fun. Us kitties would love it too, because we could dig like crazy in all those plants.
    Have a great day.

  9. Love the photos. I really admire those that make a beautiful garden out of nothing but a plot of dirt. HAve a great day.

  10. I love garden centers. I walk around them a lot and buy a lot too! You have a beautiful shoppe!
    Have a great day!

  11. looks like a great place to work.

  12. We had no idea your dad owned a garden center! What a neat place!

    We think we would be kind of scared of Scarlett and her beak, too…

  13. Wow, that looks like a pwasome garden centre! Great gardening post.

    P.S. Izzy says Hi to Scarlett

  14. The garden center is pawsome! We love the lawn accoutrements 🙂

  15. We LOVED the tour of your dad’s garden center! Our ‘beans are going to the local garden center this weekend to get their flowers. Wish we lived by you, then we’d come to yours!

  16. Your Dad has a great Garden Center. Very pretty flowers. Scarlett is a very pretty African Gray parrot

  17. Wow! How cool that your Dad owns a garden center! So awesome!

    Scarlett is a smart bird. We bet she is happy minding the store and entertaining the customers.

  18. We didn’t know your daddy owned a garden center! How cool is that! He really has a green thumb!

    One time way back when Mom was looking to buy a condo, she went to see one and when the owner (who was renting it out) opened the door, a dog started barking. He freaked out because dogs were not allowed to live in the building. Well, it turns out the barking dog was an African Grey! We think the owner taught it to bark when the door opened. Very funny!!! Mom loves those birdies!

  19. We didn’t know Zoey was found in the garden centre – perhaps she wanted a career as a garden designer. Your Dad has got some lovely plants there.

  20. We had no idea that your dad owned a garden center, but that’s probably why your own garden looks so good! We love all of the accoutrements!

  21. We just LOVE garden centers. Your dad sure has a really nice one. That gazebo is aweomeness! Thanks for sharing!

  22. hehe! We did know…Jonesie told us all that awhile ago. Jonesie has been looking at figuring out how to teleport over there because she would adore it. She’d even be willing to offer seminars for any kitty and their human that would want to attend!

  23. That sure is a nice garden center and that Scarlett is a cutie too!

  24. What an awesome post; your Dad’s business is beautiful!…The flowers and gazebo are gorgeous and we love Scarlett too!…Years ago, our Mom had a little parakeet named Skye who was Nikki’s (her Siamese before us) best friend and Skye meowed all the time!…We’d love to watch a video of Scarlett talking, barking and meowing!!MOL…kisses sweet friends…xo…Calle, Halle, Sukki

  25. OMC, your Dad OWNS a Garden Center? Fabulous! Everything looks so special and beautiful. He has a wonderful place there. Thanks for showing it to us.

  26. What a wonderful place! I would love to be there and nap in some of those flowers.

  27. That’s a lovely garden center, we also did not know that the dad-guy owned one nor that Zoey had been found there. What a lovely place to be found! 😀

    Purrs and hugs,
    The Kitty Krew

  28. Wow that is so cool that the dad-guy owns a garden center! And it is a beautiful one – way more cool then the one our mom goes to here. And it is so cool that he has Scarlett there – she must love getting attention from all the people who go there!

  29. My human wants that gazebo in the back of HER place! And she wouldn’t mind having a kitten like Zoey to come along with it.

  30. :::pawsome::::
    We all love the garden center, there are some beautiful plants and accoutrements there. Momma would love to have all of that in her backyard!


  31. We think we remember seeing photos of the garden centre some time back. The gazebo is beautiful and mum wishes she had one like it.

  32. Well, you find out new stuff everyday! Who woulda thunk your Daddy owns a garden center!?!

    Our Daddy would like doing that…

  33. That’s pawsome! Those flowers are beautiful!!!

    Sniffie and the Florida Furkids

  34. WOW! That is a beautiful place! I’m glad the bird lives there though. I like to chase them and click my teeth at them through the window, but once one got into our chimney, and, um, I didn’t want anything to do with it! You know, those beaks are sharper than they look from a distance!!! *Purrs* Dorian

  35. We didn’t know the dad-guy owns a garden center or that Zoey was found there either! That looks like a great place to be! Our mommy saw lots of things she wants like those lawn kitty things!

  36. That must be great to be around flowers and plants all day!

  37. Hi Kitties! Thanks for stopping by our blog today. The garden center is BEAUTIFUL! Also, I think your dad-guy’s parrot belongs on my shoulder in my pirate picture!!! As long as he didn’t peck me to death! I’m the Ambassador of Goodwill though, and I bet we’d get along. I’d promise not to eat her!!

  38. Pee Ess…I’m back…

    I was just thinking of how freaked out I would be if I heard a big old birdie start meowing at me!!!!

  39. The garden center looks like a beautiful place full of beautiful flowers! And Scarlett looks beautiful too.

  40. I would LOVE to play in that garden center! Especially if there’s some ‘nip around!

  41. That’s awesome that the Dad-guy owns a garden center – you kitties are sooo lucky! Everything looks just yummy!! Does he bring you home treats? (like NIP??!!) We hope so!!

    Happy Thursday!

    ~Nico & JayJay 🙂
