Thanks for posting all the flower pics. They're all gorgeous! I can't believe so many are blooming already! Including day lilies. So, here's my question, do your perennials have 2nd blooming periods? What about azeleas?

A cats point of view. We humans are just confused about who saves who!
But I'm sure cats and agree on the below.

Except for maybe when they do something like this. :catman:

M maggiedemi We used to have Sunoco here but I haven’t seen one in awhile.

I can’t have much hot stuff now. Peppers are on my “Not allowed” list. I rebuilding what I can eat though. Maybe I’m the future!

I think we all need a BFF of the green kind. 🐸

N NY cat man The garden is gorgeous! I bet it smells as pretty as it looks. Did Digger help to plant the bulbs? :) Purrfect photo. Thank you!

Furballsmom Furballsmom I did enjoy those. The art work altered to include kitties is more priceless than before IMHO! “Mother and Child!” “Girl at Fountain!” :lol:

tabbytom tabbytom The colors are wonderful. Very relaxing, calming photo. I’d like to spend some time just sitting there.
No, the only digging that Digger has done for the last 7 years is in one of the litter boxes. She will watch out a window as we do it, though.

tabbytom tabbytom I love the red flowers. They are bright and the tubular shaped one attract hummingbirds. Hummingbirds have always seemed amazing to me. The little fairies of the bird world. Lol

rubysmama rubysmama one nice thing about where I live is that Spring brings lots of color. It also brings mosquitoes though! They are here! The azaleas vary. Some rebloom but most don’t. I have some that don’t bloom until fall. The camellia azaleas have deep double flowers shaped lie camellia blooms and they bloom much later. The perennials here tend to keep blooming until a frost as long as I keep the spent flowers cut off. I let some pollinated flowers stay on to produce seeds. There are biennials here too that I look forward to seeing every other year. I am hoping that my miniature crepe myrtles bloom this year. They are still young but hoping. The leaves are a dark reddish color and the flowers look like peppermint, white with red stripes! I have the big standard crepe myrtle too that is sort of a watermelon colored flower. I have to wait for those. I noticed some wisteria blooming the other day. I’ll try to get some photos of that. The lavender drapes all over the edge of the woods. I didn’t get out to walk during daylight today because I took a nap! I haven’t had one of those for awhile and I woke up covered in kitties. Muffin, Whistle, Banjo, Purry, Thrasher, Kodiak and Smokey. Lol I guess they are still getting me used to their scent so I’ll be more socialized. :lol: Or is that a cat drop trap?

That kitten knows gold when he sees it! Maybe he was going to use it to pan for gold?

N NY cat man It sounds like Digger is supervising the digging these days. After all, he is the expert! :lol:

Lari Lari I’ll keep posting flowers for you. I wouldn’t mind a little snow. I’ll send you a box of flowers and you can mail me some snow!:thumbsup: I’ll try not to send mosquitos! I’ll have Banjo inspect the box for bugs and frogs before shipping. Lol

Mamanyt1953 Mamanyt1953 I’m glad you enjoyed the flowers. I love searching the area for new blooms. The blue flag iris are blooming but I can’t get to them without going into the water this year. It’s deep right now. Hopefully some will bloom closer to the edge. Here’s one from
Last year though.

As I mentioned, I didn’t get my late afternoon walk today. I decided to go out into the cool night air a little while ago. I had to wait until I got the “all’s clear” signal. :lol: I think the kitties would prefer it if they could walk me on a harness.

Mom wants to go outside!

Is there anything out there?

Stay back Mom! We’re still investigating. See our question mark tails?

Everybody sniff together now!
You kitties need to move over and let a big Bonjure see! You little cats are blocking my view!

And they did! That’s a Purry paw at bottom right. The pairs of glowing eyes seemed to go on forever. :flail:Nothing beats having responsible guardians!

Have a great night everyone! :heartshape:

Lari Lari and N NY cat man - thank your lucky stars that it's only a "little snow" that you have down there! Read on.........


I wouldn’t mind a little snow. I’ll send you a box of flowers and you can mail me some snow!:thumbsup:
What was that ???????????

We can trade snow for flowers ????????????

Blaize and Rusty are more than happy to engage in your offer to barter.........because, here's what's on our immediate horizon:

Warnings

5:18 AM NDT Tuesday 24 March 2020
Winter storm warning in effect

Hazardous winter conditions are expected.

Total snowfall: 20 to 30 cm. (8 - 12 inches)

Maximum wind gusts: 80 km/h or higher. (50mph +)

Time span: this evening until Wednesday evening.

Remarks: Snow, at times heavy, will develop this evening, and then ease to periods of light snow, drizzle or freezing drizzle by early-morning on Wednesday. Strong southeasterly winds gusting to 70 km/h will accompany the snow tonight resulting in blowing snow and poor visibilities.

Snow and blowing snow will redevelop Wednesday morning as winds shift to strong northerlies, with gusts to 80 km/h and possibly stronger. Conditions are forecast to improve Wednesday evening.


Rapidly accumulating snow could make travel difficult over some locations.

Winter storm warnings are issued when multiple types of severe winter weather are expected to occur together.

"Little".........well, that's in 'the eye of the beholder'............so.........how much ya want, lady? Your wish is our command:crackup:

white shadow white shadow Wow! Stay inside! How many boxes have you got? Maybe you could shovel your way out by shipping it out? I’ll take all you can send. I’ll surround the house and turn off the air conditioner! Maybe I should start gathering flowers now? Sending emergency Wisteria immediately!

I spent the day scrubbing the cat room. That meant everything came out! Unh! The cats are never sure about cat room cleaning. Lol They run around trying to decide whether to help me move everything or give me ,”the look!” Lol As we all know, cats are not fond of change.

You can move this if you give me a ride.

You can move this if you give us both a ride!

I’m staying here because you can’t move this!

Where’s our stuff?

You probably scared the birds away!
D49BF081-97BD-49B3-BB12-305ED51DC115.jpeg

So it’s all clean now?
E1B651EA-02C4-44FD-9497-B35C334FD3AE.jpeg

It took you long enough! ( note Lady is still on the windowsill! :lol: She did scoot over when I cleaned it though. Gave me “ the look!”)

Thrasher approved but Lady is still giving me the cold shoulder,

Flowers and Kodiak had to give the room the sniff test.

I think the room passed.

Dolly was just glad to claim a fresh bed. Lol

Tails were still at half mast for awhile.
F3174BD5-6594-4D48-A94A-8E01493BA3DB.jpeg

Can you bring the birds back too?
B1430CFC-5690-4B1E-8811-CD041C25DDB5.jpeg

Are we finished now? Question mark tail!

Peace is restored and all cat property is back in place. :yess:
D4F55F2F-923F-4D09-918B-BF2C8F67D1D7.jpeg

I think I saw a bird. Lady will turn around eventually. I’m getting out the treats.

Ah! BJ is climbing in my lap. I think I have been forgiven. Tomorrow we do the living room. :doh:

Some very good news....I found the food that Mackie needs.
:lol: Have a great night everyone! :heartshape:

Well, I was trying to just post a link to that so it would be more of a surprise but I guess the surprise was on me! :lol:

Furballsmom Furballsmom I love Simons cat too. That is a cute one. Good for a couple of smiles at least! I just relocated my toothbrush.


It’s Froggie time!

That’s nice of you Froggie but as Banjos patent, I would rather she didn’t eat that.

How about a kiss?
7FA52247-E5A8-4951-B9AD-4CF9CB19294C.jpeg

Mooooom! Froggie says my breath smells like cat food! I don’t know where you put your toothbrush but I need it! It smells minty.

Can I just say again how much I enjoy your nightly cat posts. Particularly in these fearful times.
Thanks Jcatbird Jcatbird , and Banjo and Froggie for today's smiles. :petcat: :bicolorcat: 🐸 :heartshape:

We're getting flurries here today, so good thing I went out and took some crocus pics yesterday. Here's a few pics. They look a lot like N NY cat man 's ones. Oh, and as you can see, the bugs were out too. Anyone know, are they bees, wasps, or hornets? 🐝
