  1. Hi Cathy, lovely to see you at wordpress – are you about to switch over completely or will you maintain the other site? Have a nice weekend…looking forward to seeing more of you!

    1. Thanks for the welcome – I’ll keep the other on for a while, because there’s things about it I like … in other words, this will be my main blog, not sure about the other! You have a good weekend too.

  2. What a treat to have such a gifted, generous and endearing neighbour overflowing with true poetry and sharing her secret garden so freely with her readers ! A huge thanks a bazillion times !

  3. Hello Catherine,

    I read with interest your latest post, which calls for the following comments.
    First , congratulations for your honouring the victims of those frightening terror attacks in France !
    Then, congratulations again for openly denouncing the massive discrimination against the Roma community – easy preys to daily attacks by some French racists and brutal policemen…By the way, did you notice an oddity in the agenda : the International Roma Day fell on Wednesday January 7 th, the day when the terrorists murdered their victims like meek lambs in Paris ?
    And last, but not least, regarding your comment about the numerous sheep you saw in Burgundy a few years ago…I can’t help remembering that they are easy “scape goats” slaughtered on the occasion of Aïd El Kebir, a feast which celebrates Abraham who was on the verge of murdering his own son Isaac … Is it not funny to see so many Arabs honouring a Jew ?

    With my best regards,


    1. Hi Jacques – and thanks for reading and commenting. I was totally unaware that 7 January was International Roma Day. A real twist to the tale … And yes, another twist, with so many Arabs honouring a Jew. Your insights are indeed thought provoking!

  4. Here’s a message from Türkiye to say “thank you” Cathy. I appreciate your recent ‘follow’, knowing how many interesting and entertaining blogs there are out there.

    Blogging since June 2013, my little corner of the world tries to offer an eclectic smattering of posts, from basic amateur photography, to sharing my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day-to-day happenings here on our fruit farm in southern Turkey. I also throw in a few of my observations on life and lighter-hearted stuff for good measure.

    You are more than welcome to have a look around, stay a while and have a trawl through my collection. There are plenty of categories within the drop-down menus to help in said digging process. Of course, if you have any comments, suggestions or concerns, feel free to let me know – I’m not easily offended 🙂

    Hope you have a great day…


  5. Came for a nose and have really enjoyed your blog. I love all your gardens and couldn’t comment on them all, so here I’m commenting and “liking” all of them in one go! Looking forward to watching how all your gardens progress.

  6. Hi Cathy. Thanks so much for following ZimmerBitch. I am rather envious of your beautiful garden (and the lifestyle you’ve chosen); it is very close to that which I’m aiming for (albeit in New Zealand rather than France). I’m looking forward to following your journey. Cheers, Su

  7. Hi Cathy. I read your article in the current edition of Connexion and then your blog. I am the president of Open Gardens/Jardins Ouverts, an association which started in 2013 in order to replicate the NGS scheme which has been so popular in the UK for many years and wondered whether you would be interested in opening your garden once a year for us. I would love to hear from you if this were to be of interest (mick@opengardens.eu or 05 55 63 43 12). For more information about us, please go to http://www.opengardens.eu
