Happy Mothers' Day to all mothers in England. It's sunny today and a blue sky - what could be better!
In my garden today I noticed:
some lovely bright red tulips,
the growth on my climbing rose becoming prolific,
some pretty mauve and purple primroses,
some new growth from the pink phlox, which won't be ready to flower till late July.
and a beautiful cabbage, which I picked to eat for lunch today.
Feeling very blessed that once again we have got through the cruel winter and emerged to enjoy a wonderful Spring.
Our Panda is a smart cat! He has a habit of getting into our chairs as soon as we vacate them. I suppose he likes the warmth. This is Larry's chair. To stop Panda getting in it all the time, Larry puts the shopping bag in it. For a long time this worked, but no longer. Panda looked at the bag the other day and promptly got into it.
and he snuggled down in the bag so we could hardly see him. 'Just try and move me' came the thought bubble from inside. When Larry got back, I warned him not to pick up the bag because Panda has a habit of grabbing our fingers if we're not careful. He is still very young and sees everything as a game, especially grabbing fingers.
I'll leave you today with a picture of Ruby, now 9 months old, sitting in the shopping trolley at the local supermarket. She seems to be really enjoying it, doesn't she!
I know there is an issue with Blogger and my blog and I am trying to rectify it.
