Kathy cat teaches Sherbet and his friends the names of all the flowers and plants

What a lovely evening Kathy cat and I had together yesterday. We shared a tasty meal, drank freshly squeezed orange juice and chatted until quite late. Kathy was up bright and early this morning, she could not wait to get into the garden and start working with the plants. Her boots got very muddy yesterday so she has changed them today. She is going to teach  Doodle, Pearl and Mango the names of all the plants and flowers in my garden as I know there are many that they see every day but they have no idea what they are called. Kathy loves flowers and plants and bushes and will be a very good teacher. I have asked Doodle, Pearl and Mango to come to my garden this afternoon and to bring notepads and pencils to write down the notes about the plants. Doodle said he would bring his sketch book too and draw the plants and put names underneath to help him remember. That is a very good idea. It reminds me of when we sometimes go on nature walks in Wiggleway Lane and do sketches of the plants with their details and we name them if we can.  We will all go for a walk in Wiggleway Lane later as Kathy loves to walk.  Kathy will also know all the names of all the bushes and trees and wild flowers we find there. How wonderful to have a friend who knows so many things that she can teach us. We love to learn lots of new things.
