Cats

Posted: 31/07/2015 at 21:51

I like animals, I have a cat, a dog and horses. My garden was turning into a wild life park so OH fenced the veg bit and the main flower bit to protect them from the deer. I have hares, stone martins, mice, voles, lots of birds, red squirrels, but am glad I don't have rabbits - they can do a lot of damage in a garden. I'm so lucky to have a big garden and to share it with so many creatures, but I can understand that if you live in a town with a small garden and have to share it with the neighbours' cats it must get very frustrating.

Went to GC. Bought a new big square plant pot for the "Lady of Shallot" rose I bought in Suffolk. Not as pretty as the lead look one I bought in Suffolk but clematis "Betty Corning" has gone in that one.

Have at last done some gardening. Weeded the tomatoes in the GH, fed them, watered them, put out mouse traps. Deadheaded, weeded and tidied up in the flower garden, 2 barrows full.

I've found traps work best. But in the borders the tunnels are too deep for the traps.

Have deadheaded and weeded, 2 barrow loads full. Nice day, sunny, low 20s, did 3 loads of sheet and towel washing.

Wintersong, did the dentist ask him to take the denture out so soon? If it's left out the gap could close a bit and the denture could be too tight. I'm not an expert though, son is a dentist.

At last a day when I'm not going out and nothing is planned and it's sunny but not too hot. So I will be able to do some serious dead heading and tidying up.

My daughter's cat is staying until next week when she moves into her new house. My cat doesn't care for him much, she'll be relieved when he's gone I think. Anyway, he caught a mouse yesterday and brought it alive into the kitchen. It went behind a radiator and I left the door open and removed the cat so I hope it got away.

It was a good party last night, yummy food.

I thought the potting shed was the prize, but now I've read your other posts and seen that it's a present from husband for your birthday on Sunday. I hope you have a lovely day. I saw all the other lovely photos of your garden.

Some of us have posted pictures of our gardens on this thread. Have you seen it?
