Hello Dear Readers,
As I am incapacitated at present darling hubbie has been taking some pictures for me!
This is our first white peony in full bloom at last!
And here is our cat, Missy, who waits patiently for her little playmate, Mrs Mouse, to come out!
|That's not a stick up her nose! It's a plant she likes to rub her chin on.|
Mrs Mouse is a little reluctant to come out at the moment as she had a fright recently when Missy picked her up and dropped her unceremoniously amongst the pot plants for a little game. Part of Missy's little game is catching Mrs Mouse, then releasing her, only to chase her again!
|A waiting game....|
As luck would have it, we were both in the garden and I was able to capture our protesting cat and take her away from the area, whilst dh rescued the frightened Mrs Mouse by encouraging her into an empty flowerpot in order to release her to go back to her little home in the rockery! (If this situation reoccurred now I would be of no assistance as my back is still giving me trouble.)
|Mrs Mouse, hiding between our doorstep, the wall of the house and a flowerpot|
I hope it doesn't sound mean returning her to her little home, of which the cat is aware, but for all we know she has a family there to look after, otherwise we could take her to an open field and release her well away from the cat.
Luckily for the wildlife, Missy is getting on in years now, therefore she hasn't been bringing any livestock in through the cat flap like she used to.
I hope you are having a good week.
P.S. Whilst typing this I have just noticed a sparrow coming onto the lawn and taking away pieces of dried grass. Does this mean they are building another nest?
