To feed or not?

Posted: 04/03/2014 at 09:32

My cat was the kitten of a stray cat who my daughter put out food for. One day my daughter arrived with her and said Mummy she needs a home? Couldn't say no, but I'd never meant to have a cat. I have a lovely Border Collie.

Thank you, Mrs. Garden. Will be tiring though, the boys have a lot of energy. We're going to the swimming pool.

Winter will be over soon. The berries on the Nandina have been lovely all winter. I'll be sad to see the end of the snowdrops though, and the hellebores.

Morning all. Congratulations to Dove's parents and happy birthday to your dad tomorrow.

Tracy, my OH was 72 last week and he started teaching himself the piano about 3 years ago because he had joined a choir and wanted to learn the music and he started piano lessons last year. He's getting on really well and enjoys it. But in our house it's me who sows seeds and looks after the garden, except for the mowing.

Grass needs mowing badly, but ground is like a wet sponge.

I will be staying with my daughter for two days (near Poitiers) so I won't be posting from tomorrow. She has 3 small sons. (Granny visit)

I think there's enough for a shower.

I've had 23 years to turn it into a garden! Goodnight.

Thanks Tracey. Your place looks nice too, fields at the end of the garden. I could hardly see my garden today! It wasn't always beautiful, it was an old farmyard full of brambles and stinging nettles and the rest was rough grass.

That is a super hellebore with masses of pink flowers.

I was going to have a bath but found water heater had turned itself off because we had a power cut this afternoon in the thunderstorm. OH had a bath just before it went off. Waiting for it to warm up.

It has poured today.

Cat went nuts when I put a collar on her. Ran round in circles and tried to hang herself in the lilac bush! Left the collar hanging on a branch. Couldn't find a collar here in France with a safety clip. Most of the time she's too fell fed and lazy to go after birds.

Oh, another bizzie lizzie! I hope it won't get confusing. I have a cat and I feed the birds high up. Occasionally she catches a bird but I'm sure more would die in winter if I didn't feed them.
