It's most definitely almost summer in our garden;
we've been spending most of our weekend time with
the vegetables and flowers and things are coming
I bought this little rose bush because the blossom
colors are lovely, a really brilliant pink, and
part of the proceeds of the sale go to Breast
Cancer Research UK.
Sox and Lucia are allowed in the garden when one
of us is out there with them, and of course Sox
thinks he can be very sneaky and thinks he's
"jungle kitty"; he doesn't realize how large he
is and he tries to hide behind flower pots.
Slug/snail update: thanks for all the suggestions.
Unfortunately, sprinkling salt in the garden is
pretty bad for the soil and plants, but we've been
catching the slugs and snails in saucers of cheap
beer. David's dad suggested it; they love the
smell and taste, crawl in to drink, and drown. I
also got some anti-slug nematodes to water into
the soil, plus some copper tape to lay around the
perimeter, as slugs won't crawl over copper. It's
a never-ending war!!
Hope all are well; thanks for peeking!

What a cute pic of Sox. Gardening is so good for the heart and soul. We had a constant battle with snails and slugs in Calif ..., Seems you are winning the war.:o) In the high country we have no snails or slugs, which is great, but then there are the squirrels, bunnies, racoons, and deer who like to nibble on our flowers, and moles who pull whole plants right into the ground, and a bear who sat on our one and only tomato plant to rest while drinking our hummingbird nectar.:o) CC
LOL - Sox almost looks like a "normal" cat. Cool. And cool to see him outside, so well hidden. Regarding the snails - beer is of course a really good idea. But be sure it will not be drunken by a two legged slug around! Oh, not to forget - ecellent, very crisp photo!
This is just beautiful and your money went for a worthy cause as well.......11 yrs remission of Breast Cancer but getting ready to have a nodule removed from my lung hopefully in the next week or so.....only been trying to since Apr and finally all the test are done...... I would vote but my computer is not letting me and would add it to fav images but it's not doing that either any suggestions???? Love this Hugs Susan~
Sox is so BIG, isn't he?!?! And remembering his tiny kittenhood photos... wow!! Tabby's sure do grow up big! :) Wonderful shot, love the way cat's "hide"!! true of most of them I think! Tomorrow your lady in the garden maybe?? Interesting on the snail/slug wars! Beer, huh?!
