  1. Your got a purrfect garden what with all those cat toys you set up. Your hellebores are nicely suited to that spot in the garden. You may need to select the best flowering seedlings, and find other gardeners out where you are to set up a plant exchange.

    1. Maybe if I bought them a cat tunnel for the house, they would leave the one in the garden alone! Your comment made me think that perhaps I should post something on Facebook to get a group together – we are few and far between here, us ornamental gardeners.

  2. Lovely post, Spring is such a joy but like you I have noticed the lack of rain! X

  3. Spring is definitely springing in your garden. Love the Zwanenberg – such a lovely colour. My crocuses have about finished except for ‘Snow Bunting’ which are very small and don’t seem to like the wind much. As you say, plants find their own place in a garden.

    1. Funnily enough, I’m noticing this year for the first time that we are behind the UK here – so many daffodils on blogs, long before mine were showing colour …

    1. Thanks, Rosie. Yes, we love to sit in there and look out. In some ways our garden is slightly divorced from the house, because we are on such a steep slope.

  4. At least my cat isn’t a chewer, he’s not much help in the garden, but HD does like to watch me when the weather is warm. You have been very busy and it shows. Interesting Six-on-Saturday.

  5. I love the Zwanenberg crocus, too. And the cats, though I can see how aggravating that could be. I keep my dogs out of the garden as much as possible. That is an interesting slope solution…

    1. The thing with cats the garden is where they have their walk!!!! Normally they are no problem at all, but Sage is glued to my heels and is one of those teenagers that just doesn’t know where to stop!

  6. Things are looking spring-like. Love the hellebores.
    I wonder if a homemade spray of crushed garlic and cayenne pepper would deter the Chewer? You’d have to reapply after a rain or maybe weekly, but it might help.

  7. What a great round up of everything that’s going on in your garden. I always enjoy reading your posts. The crocus and hellebores look great, and I always love a cat photo!

  8. What an interesting post, Cathy – especially about your trial and error schemes, something we can all pick up tips from. Your garden room seems to have proved to be a big asset!

    1. Thanks so much. Yes – it’s always been good for the plants, since we moved here (a difficult house for plants – but too complicated to explain!!!), now we are reclaiming it for people (and cats). It’s so pretty and one of the oldest parts of the house, since it was the base of the tower on the old medieval rampart walls.
