Cats are here

More participants at Kelly

The last days we really had spring weather. It was quite warm, 19 ° C (66 F) and the sun also came out from time to time. So I did like everybody, I bought stuff for the garden !

Some flowers for these pots, there are 3. Rosie helped a lot because it is her first year where she discovers the outside world !

This tile covers an access to the canalisation, so I bought a ceramic cat as decoration.

We also had to buy a new sun tent, the one from the years before was rotten.

I also bought this "Bistro" table with two seats and put them in front of the kitchen door, to sit there and have coffee in the morning or a drink during the day.

These two ceramic cats are sitting on our little cimetary where all our animals are burried. There is still some cleaning to do as you can see !

I love the new white ceramic cat!! I am not buying new plants since there is a ban and we are not allowed to use drinking water for the garden... so I am multiplying my old geraniums, they are tough! and survive with little water.

It's fun to see Rosie, your little helper, lol!

Hi Gattina.

We had a "Pet Semetary" (to use Steven King's spelling) in our old garden where Mouseable and Pandable were buried. Pandable, who looks just like my "avatar" portrait, was a beautiful golden hammy who ran a good 16,000 km in his lifetime on a 30cm diameter rat wheel. 5 people came to his funeral and sang All Things Bright And Beautiful. It was the best funeral I've ever been to...

Take care ;->...

I'm moving house today so wish me luck!!

Rosie is a cutie! I need to get out and work in the yard as well. We have a lot of flowers in bloom now and I need to get out there and deadhead them. I like your suntent! It's much too warm here in Texas in the summer to be able to do that (at least for me it is!) Our Spring and fall don't last nearly long enough!

Did you ever find Der Struwwpelter?

Melli said...

Ahhhhhhh! I love the garden cats - especially the white one! And the instant shade! GREAT idea! Your yard looks sooooooo green!

Jeanette said...

Hi Gattina Im Back.

Kelli said...

Your garden kitties are adorable, especially Rosie! Your new canopy and table set are wonderful, I know you will enjoy many hours relaxing outside.
P.s. Your link on Mr. Linky was broken, but I just fixed it!

Cute bunch! Yea, spring!

Rosie looks right at home outside. Nice canopy and bistro set I'm sure these will give you much outdoor pleasure. I looked back at some of your other cat photos. Cats really do have their own personalities and you have captured those purrrsonalities in your photos.
From one cat lover to another....
Have a Great Day!

Good time at garden in perspective! The tent is ideal for evening and a good lunch! Rosie will have a nice spring and summer time, sure!

Charlotte said...

Rosie looks like she is enjoying the sunshine. I enjoyed the tour of your yard.

Nice to meet you. First time to your blog. I did some yard work today myself. It's just beautiful in the Carolinas right now. Enjoyed your blog.

As I enjoy reading about your kitties, my very pregnant kitty is sleeping beside me. Would you like some kittens?! :D

Ever wonder why people collect roosters? It's becasue they're good luck! Stop by to read the Legend of the Rooster.

I love your backyard it is so
nicely set up and I know the
kitties love it too! We had a
few warm days here but it ended,
it's back to cold temperatures
for a few days. Hopefully I'll
start working in the garden then!
Have a great weekend!
