Saturday Was A Sun Day
Ahh, a sunny spot and a good cozy mystery featuring cats who know who did it before the humans do. Saturday was a pretty nice day for March in Michigan. Billie took advantage of the afternoon sun streaming in the west living room window. She's my little glamor puss, but she's not fond of grooming. I must be discreet when I do it. ;)
I listened to a gardening show on the radio yesterday morning. They said as long as the leaves that you used to cover you flower beds in the fall are not frozen to the ground yet you can uncover the emerging plants. It's time for them to get some sun and air circulation. So, I went out with my little hand rake and uncovered my spring garden beds. Oh, they were so cute! Hyacinths, Tulips, and Daffodils. Even some Pansies that had survived the cold winter under their blanket of leaves. My perenial garden in the front of the house wasn't ready yet. There's still a little bit of icy snow and since it's mainly summer blooming plants I figured they still need a little protection. I was a little sore later, but it was worth it to finally do something related to gardening.Today, the sun is hiding and Billie is on my lap. :)
she's purring and I'm wondering if I can get some brushing in before she notices. Wish me luck! Happy Sunday!
