Eric's Day Flashback Photos.

ERIC THE GARDENER.

Eric always would like to help in the garden, be it digging holes to plant the flowers....

or rolling the soil level,

 and checking the bird seed containers had been filled.

Checking to see if the hanging baskets needed watering.

and even checking the hole in the concrete to make sure no worms had fallen in. He was always willing to help with whatever job needed doing.

OH Eric we remember the picture of you on the ladder because we thought you and Flynn were so brave to climb up that high! You were a grand gardener!!!Miss you Eric!

Team Tabby said...

Eric, you knew a lot about gardening and were most helpful, too, no wonder your garden is so lovely!

We like the photo of you and Flynn on the ladder, you could see a lot from up there.

We enjoy your flashback photos, Eric, but we miss you lots.

Eric, you really were a fantastic helper! We like the idea of checking on the bird seed like that.

All cats like to supervise, but it is rare to find one who did it as well as Eric!

Kari said...

We always loved to see the boys in trees! Fascinated us completely. The photos with the big old oak tree were just magical.
There isn't a day that goes by that we don't miss you, Eric. All of our love always.

We are thinking about bringing a new kitty into our home. He looks a lot like Eric!

Such a good helper cat! Gandalf helped a frog across the yard yesterday... from the inside of Gandalf's mouth. I think Gandalf enjoyed it a lot more than the frog though. srsly.

We know your mum misses all your wonderful help in the garden, Eric. Love the pictures!

Jasper McKitten-Cat said...

Eric was such a big helper, for sure. And a good climber, too. Dad left a ladder up for us for a while to see if we'd be interested, but we never paid any attention to it. I think I'd prefer to be up in the tree.
