Summer and Sunshine

(I should point out that I write these blog posts at least a day in advance, and then they get automatically posted on the next day for which I need one. This means you get fresh bloggy goodness at 8am every morning, which otherwise would be impossible)

The weather has been glorious here today and yesterday - really sunny and warm. This is my favourite time of the year, even though it means large amounts of sunscreen. I've been getting on with the rest of my gardening; mainly weeding and putting out bedding plants. My hanging basket is up, and I'm going to do some pots for the decking as well.

And I discovered something fun yesterday. Cats like to chew sweetcorn plants. I couldn't work out why the tops of some of the plants I put out were all raggedy, then yesterday while I was weeding I caught him in the act. The plants seem to be surviving, and he hasn't found the ones in the pots or the greenhouse, so we should be OK. I did do a quick search online to make sure they weren't poisonous for cats (although I'm not sure what I was going to do if they were), and apparently all cats do it.

Who, me?


  1. Awwww, kitty is so cute ... how can you be cross with him?!

  2. He's a very clever cat, he has found the coolest place xoxoxoxo
