What, no mice?



She did not grow them in her garden. Fed up of tired supermarket vegetables She goes to Spring Meadow Farm where they cauliflowers are purple and the lettuce leaves are shaped like oak leaves and there is a dog with blue eyes.
Her garden is wild and in it She grows mice and birds and lizards and snakes and butterflies and weasels and stoats and rats and dragonflies and, of course, cats.

Wow, what is that purple stuff? Is it cauliflower or broccoli? I like the color, but I still would not like to eat it.

Your cats on the sign post is a winner! I love to follow the antics of the Ginger Darlings. Do they like to snuggle or are they all curiosity and business?

My goodness, what a beautiful basket of veggies!

Leslie said...

That is just magnificent.
Are those iris, or lemon grass on the left, in the pot?

That is the most colorful and photogenic basket of veggies the ginger kitty is inspecting! The purple cauliflower is gorgeous. Cindy at Rosehaven Cottage

er, hi. this is a bit maudlin but... my mum's ginger cat, homer, from brecon, died today from a pulmonary embolism. needless to say we are devastated. we discussed whether cat heaven exists. having seen your delightful pictures i'm inclined to say that it does! i guess i'm trying to say thank you so much for the beautiful images and for making me smile genuinely on such a sad day :)

Very yummy basket of vegetables and they do look better than anything a store can sell.

Cats aren't very thrilled about them though. But then again, should they be?

oh my god, were those veggies grown in Her garden!?
I'm amazed!

This is a comment for Bonnie. We would like to say farewell to Homer, the ginger cat from Brecon. We do not know of cat heaven, but we do know that cats have nine lives, and cat gods like Bastet. We also know that we still remember Bird, the black cat, and Arthur, glorious ginger prince among cats. While we hold the memory of them still in our hearts and minds they do not pass away.
We will look for Homer as we walk the hills and listen for his call.
Tonight is a dark night. The stars have shut out their lights to honour his passing.

Just paid proper attention and read the words (not just the pictures) and realised that She did not grow the lovely veg in Her garden!

*squeek!*
