ManCat Monday

The cat has too much spirit to have no heart - Ernest Menaul

I was practically abandoned this past weekend. Mum spent all sorts of time outside, pruning, trimming, and caring for the plants outside. The result of which is a huge pile of stuff that has to be taken away.
The daffs are blooming finally, the tulips are still coming Mum even found this bush that has nice soft catkins on them, pussy willows she calls them.
Virginger is hanging out in the front, keeping an eye on things, ready to greet any guest who happen to stop by.
I on the other hand am inside watching mum cook her dinner outside. Friday night she did chick-hen and I did get some. Sunday night she grilled brats for Grampie and herself. I was not allowed to have any of those.
Big purrs to MomRobyn who is having her knee fixed today and Miss Peach who is also having some work done Tuesday.

Your Mom is quite the gardener! Those are some beautiful flowers, and it was good to see Virginger again. I was wondering how he was doing.

This seems to be a busy time for beans with plants. We loves pussy willows, we don't have any though. Maybe we should send Mom to fetch some. ~S,S,C & F

Wow! Your Mom is quite dedicated. In Racine they said it was really windy which made it feel very cold outside so they weren't going out much yet!

Our mom puttered in the yard too, but there's not really much to do yet. Thanks for reminding mom she needs to get more propane for the grill!
Love your quote today!

We have piles of sticks like that too! We have no flowers, though. The unexpected freezy weather did a lot of things in. I think our lilacs have lived through that but they haven't popped yet. Soon!

Our Beans have been working in the garden too and we helped them to dig holes.

Sorry you felt abandoned this weekend, Derby. But your mum is doing all this work so you can both enjoy a lovely garden.

aah...Tommy says she wishes we had tulips! But she does say we have those little yellow flowers. I think your garden looks nice and you look like you want to explore from behind that door! :)

Spring is here and so are all the weeds sprouting up where they should not be. We did yard work at our house too.

Our beans need to do some gardening too but it is too rainy and wet outside. Mom says pussy willows kind of feel like kitty toes!

I am glad that your flowers are doing well. Our freezing weather really nipped a bunch of flowers, but there are some survivors and they are a welcome sight.
