The Mama was playing in the mud this morning. Her favorite thing to do. Okay, she was replanting Filipino onions, which she does every several weeks.
The Mama likes to say, "You cannot fool me." And that's what I say. The Mama cannot fool me. She's playing in the mud and she's having lots of fun out there. Yup, she's still out there as I'm writing this post.
While the Mama was playing with her onions, Molly the Cat did her rounds of the backyard. She was late this morning. She sat on the chair, which was once the Mama's favorite chair, for the longest time after breakfast. The Mama asked her, "Are you sick, Molly? Do you have a headache?"
The Mama opened the back door and Molly the Cat jumped off the chair in no time. "Don't go far," said the Mama.
I think Molly wanted her photo taken because she kept close to me while I was clicking away by the lemon tree. But, would she look prettily at the camera? Of course, not. "Find a candid shot, Lady," said Molly.
So, what's new in the Mama's garden today?
Three of the four marunggay seeds have sprouted. The seeds were from the Philippines, which came from a friend of the Mama's, who got them from a cousin. Marunggay is a huge tree with yummy leaves to eat. Health buffs are now touting the marunggay as a wonder food to eat.
The tomatoes are growing on what the Mama likes to call the "tomato tree" because the plant is about 4 feet tall or more. Lemons are abundant. And, some of the apple blossoms that popped out a month ago actually has become fruit.
It was full house in the backyard this morning. The Husband even went out to throw garbage. Yup. It was a good Sunday morning in the backyard.
