The day of the Triffids

I had to take a picture of this because I couldn't believe how much this Flag Iris had grown over the last two years. It had quite taken over and had to be split or else it would have consumed the entire pond. Luckily for me, quite a few of my friends have now got ponds themselves and all off cuts were found new homes......little do they know what they are letting themselves in for.

The hidden Tortie

Jess hides to show that even naughty Torties can blend into their surroundings with purrfect camouflage.
Oh there she is........thank god.

The early morning sun trap

Tiny, shy Jess is caught on camera as she soaks up the early morning sunshine.

Whereas big Maisey hasn't a care in the world and just wallows in it, stretching out on the warm slates.

One sunny morning in a tiny garden

My love for all things Roman has spilled out into my garden, so when I saw these two little Olive trees going for a steal, I had to bag'em. These pots hanging on the fence catch the sun all day and nothing could grow in the intense heat, Until I had the idea of planting some Alpines in them. Alpines love the dry sunny conditions and they thrived. I mixed the soil with sand to give better drainage, this was back in the summer and they're still going great guns. I love the way the pots are turning green with algae. Hugh, the magical talking witches cat, finally puts the last stone block into place on his new improved stone pentagram. What he intends to use it for, he won't say. I have a pretty good idea though after the last one.

Yes, more cat photo's

Here Maisy searches the white tundra for any signs of her black nemesis. Hugh on the other hand, has learnt his strengths and stays out of the white stuff and sticks to the shadows. It works every time.

Winter Camouflage!

This is Hugh's second winter and to my surprise, he loved the snow, digging around in it and chasing snowballs, he had a great time. Oh yes...and tasting it of course..well why not.

Maisy the snow cat.

Here are some great pictures of the cats after it had snowed for three days in Feb, Global warming you say...who knows, but yes quite. Anyway, here she is taking in the new surrounding for the first time, unaware of the evil green eyes, watching her from the shadows.
Rule number one about having an evil step-brother cat, never turn your back on him especially when it has just snowed. She soon paid for her mistake!
