Cats in Gardens

Posted: 23/01/2014 at 20:22

i have a catapult which i use. when i see them, i send a pebble towards their direction and they scamper off. when they see me walking on the streetor hear the sound of the key turning in the back door they scamper off. i still go round every sunday to scoop a few parcels they leave during the night. its very bad around this time of year, when the garden is virtually bare.

some of these modern day cats have become lazy. they care so much about their appearance they dont like to keep their paws dirty, so they just do their business on the grass. u only find out when u step into something soft or a bad whiff follows u around the garden. it makes me so angry . i have tried so many products but when it rains,  u start all over again. the worst time is the winter thru to spring when the ground is bare.

i think there are not enough ladybirds to feed on blackflies and greenflies this year . i have so many of my plants affected but i dont want to use insecticides.

Talkback: Gardening makes you happy

i hope all gardeners are not like me. sometimes i go into the garden with a cup of tea just to sit and relax, but as soon as i enter the garden, something catches my attention and the cup of tea is forgotten. By the time i get back to the tea, its too cold. There have been times where a half drank cup of tea or two have been lost in the borders. . i just love gardening. i dont know what i would do without it. sometimes its back breaking, sometimes its sad when u loose a loved plants, or the cats dig up all yr new plants or the winds knock everything down, but its great when everything comes together. the icing on the cake is, when people commend u on how beautiful yr garden looks. i am addicted.
