Thursday, talking about the garden

Dear furriends,
the weather has been unsettled here with rain, wind and even hail.With such horrible conditions we have to confirm ourselves with being "Cats looking at a Garden" again.
We both have been helping mom study. She has lots of books to check wether they could be of interest for her final written work. This one's quite comfy!
You know how much we love our garden, but being a Gardening Cat can has its disadvantages too.You see, fast little Chillimus escaped into the hallway and usually she runs up all the stairs right to the attic. But this time some overwintering plants of a neighbour stopped her and mom could grab and carry her inside again - only on level two of the house.This is a partial view of our patio from one of the top windows. You can see the roofs of the bicycle shelter and our little circular garden area. We have two more garden beds. It's all very small, and no lawn ever seems to grow there, but we love it. On the left side from the wall is a very messy property where an illegal addition to a house was built. Mom doesn't like it at all when we snoopervise there.
And here's another pictures where you can appreciate that in our case the grass really is greener on the other side. This is "the other world" behind our wall where we like to garden too. The Birch filling the right of the picture is still on our ground. This whole area hasn't got direct access to any streets, so it's reasonably safe for us. At the far end you might see a grey wall though. From there the introoder Dado gets into our turf and behind it there's an open garage door leading to a street. We have never climbed on that wall so far. But with neighbours leaving cellar doors open, general coming and going to the dustbins, the bikes etc. and so on, mom feels safer when she's out there with us to snoopervise. It's calm now that it's cold, but it gets busier when it's warmer. We're good girls and almost always come when called, so I hope for many nice gardening hours this Spring and Summer.
So there, that's where we live!
Purrs,
Siena Snowfox

WE hope that the weather there gets better so you can get back to the garden soon!

One Cats Nip said...

Speaking of Dado..seems like he needs a good stern talking too. But hopefully maybe the spring will fill his mind with sunshine flowers and he will be tolerable

Chrissy said...

I will never understand why a cat loves to lay in a book- don't tell me they are absorbing the words! lol..Your cats are so adorable...

Simba said...

That's very nice about your Garden(s) - fun to see more of the layout.

I am here to answer your question about my crocheted blanket. No, my Mom does not know how to crochet, only how to knit, and a whole blaket would be too much for her to ever finish knitting. The crocheted blanket was done by a friend of Mom's stepmother, quite a lot of years ago. It was made so well, that it seems almost new still. That way it can hold up to being my messy blankie well!

JC said...

I like where you live. Thanks for showing us ^,,^

The Monkeys said...

We hope your weather improves soon so you two can get back to gardening!

Our Mom gasped at how absolutely adorable the first photo is. She loves it!

Angel and Kirby said...

Thank you for the tour of your garden! We enjoyed it.

Marlene said...

Lovely to see your home. Hope the weather gets better so you can be Cats with a Garden again!

Cindy said...

Very nice photos of your areas. Spring is coming. It's a good thing that potted plant was there to stop her.

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Yuu-Chan said...

Dear Friends,

We just love that first photo of the two of you side by side. You look very cozy! Our weather has been awful too and we are purring for it to improve. But there are lots of crocuses now in the garden! And #1 said to tell your Mum that the amaryllis is growing very nicely! Yuu-Chan hasn't managed to destroy it yet...

Purrs,

Hello new friends! Thanks for visiting us today. We eat raw food too! One way we keep our teeth clean is by eating raw chicken necks. We love to crunch the bones.

xo, Raymond and Busby

Thanks for showing us where you live. It looks like there are LOTS of spots to explore there. I bet it's exciting all the time. And don't worry. . . it will be spring soon.

Ayla and Iza said...

We hope ta be able to nap outside on the deck inna few weeks...

Love the picture of you and Chilli nestling together on the cat tree, looking out to the garden. Just picture perfect. Another addition to the album. Your album is growing. Second to mine yours is the largest in my pic album file.

I also love spreading myself out on books, especially the one that SS is working on at the time. We kitties just know.

Kea said...

It was great to get a good bird's eye view of your garden and where you live! It looks like you have lots of interesting spots to explore, and of course your mom will snoopervise--she needs to make sure you both stay safe. And we wish for dry, sunny weather--not only for you, but for us too! :-)

Goldie, Shade and Banshee said...

What a lovely tour of the grounds, girls! You have a wonderful area to patrol!

catsintrees said...

With bad weather and a friend to lean on while you sit, looking at gardens isn't such a bad thing to do. We are doing a lot of that too. We were kept indoors before Dushi's neutering and two more days of recuperation indoors have been ordered.

The Island Cats said...

Wow! What a view you have from there! We hope the weather gets better so you can see your garden more up close!

Khyra The Siberian Husky And Sometimes Her Mom said...

It's so windy here right now I might be able to blow by soon!

Hugz&Khysses,

The Creek Cats said...

It's great to see a view of your world, girls! It actually hailed here today for about 5 minutes. It was very bizarre!

Eric and Flynn said...

That is a lovely photo of you both on your cat tree together. We have storms forecast for tomorrow so we won't be going on any walks.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Wow! I liked seeing all those places you get to explore!

Brian said...

We liked seeing your explore places too!

LizzyBean said...

Thank you for sharing all of those pictures of your territory! I love the top pic with both of you on the cat tree. It looks like you have a lovely place and safe place to garden when the weather cooperates. I think the weather has been bad everywhere this Feb.!
Oh-- Siena; excellent book lounging! That REALLY helps moms with their studies!

BeadedTail said...

We enjoyed seeing the photos of your yard! There are sure a lot of things to see and do out there, hope the weather gets better soon!

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

Lets all keep our paws crossed for Spring, and some Sun ~ then we can all go owtside.

Forever Foster said...

You girls must be looking forward to spring very much. It's a lovely space you have outside.

LizzyBean said...

I meant to thank you for your kind words about Monger....you were really our very first blog friends so you are very special to us!

Laila and Minchie said...

Oh, Chilli, you are just like me running out the door into the hallways. Only I can't get to the stairwells because there is a door. Darn!

Minchie

Becky's Barnyard said...

I know you are ready for sping, so am I. Hopefully soon. It is raining here today also. No fun.

meowmeowmans said...

We love the first picture (even though you had to settle for being inside because of the weather). Thank you for showing us where you live and garden!

Fin said...

How fun to see your neighborhood!

Cliff and Olivia said...

Dear Siena and Chilli,
What a wonderful place to explore.

Olivia used to run up the stairs in our building when she had a chance, but she doesn't do it any more. Maybe it's just an age-thing?

Purrs,
Cliff and Olivia
