This black cat comes inside and then goes out. In again and out again. Carted around by affectionate girls, perhaps behaving a little over affectionately at times, hence the constant going out!
Always kept well away from our ancient cat of 18, they do not get along and alas, the 18yo lacks in body size what she possesses in fighting spirit. To still have the very same cat in your thirties that you acquired when you were just a mere 17yo is a strange thing. She has been a constant part of our lives, that ancient cat.
Do you have an outdoor sink? I managed to find our old bassinet frame and temporarily placed a tip-scrounged sink on it in the garden near the back door. How convenient for prepping vegetables without bringing all the mess inside! Plus, hosing them off couldn't be more satisfying. It sure beats fumbling around under the kitchen tap any day. There's also something so nice about walking in the back door with a bowl full of clean vegetables, like just coming in from the shop but so much better. A section of aggie pipe attached to the plug hole carries the water away to the root zone of nearby plants, not wasting a drop!
A new gardening hat!
Packham pear is in blossom for the first time. Fingers are crossed for a fruity appearance.
Garlic is continuing to chug along nicely. Truly the low maintenance crop!
Much mulching has been happening here lately, fresh paths are so nice to walk on.
Oma, if you're reading, this is your weeping blossom. It's so pretty! And the bees are all over it.
..and make a new batch. Do you consume kefir? How do you like to use it? How often do you consume it? I am very, very interested to give it a try..
Is the wind blowing near you?
