Just a memory....

I'm glad I took a snapshot of these the other day. Humble supermarket tulips, last year's bulbs forgotten in their bucket over the harsh winter; only one lost. They deepened in colour as they opened fully.


Enter Tulipomaniac Cat again.


Tulips, and only tulips, are his passion.

He's in big trouble now.


And so is my fantasy of a future garden with swathes of lovely tulips.


Thinks.... "Swathes" sounds good......

What a convincing villain. I think it's the shift glance/eyebrow combo...

Haha! This brings a smile to my face ~ naughty kitty! Gosh... you can't even get mad at that sweet ball of fur for wrecking your tulips! Oh well... perhaps you will have some tulips next year! :)

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Hmmmm.

My yorkie used to bite the heads off Pinks - very embarrassing at a garden centre one time. :o)

Scooter looks so lovely, if not exactly innocent.

Could you make a bit of your future garden a Scooter-free zone?

Have just realised - it's the Victorian villain look. White tie and tail, about to twirl moustachios.

Rupert would like Scooter to know that it is not clever to chew plants - his speciality is to 'drape' fur balls over them from on high (windowsill), but chew, never! (Sorry if that's a bit yucky, but we're all cat lovers here, yes?)

That is the slyest expression I have ever seen on a cat. Your Hamish is the spitting image of our dear departed Rogers.

Well, he does have good taste!

By the way, the banner photo is lovable.

Each day my husband surprises me with flowers he's cut from the garden and each day my cat infuriates me by eating them.

Love that look on Scooter's face! Maybe you will have to put your tulips in hanging pots that he is unable to reach.
The picture of Hamish on your header is so sweet.

What a glorious banner picture! Please leave it there for a while so we can enjoy it. As for the tulip eater that expression of smug, slightly evil, satisfaction is priceless.

Love the banner pic...so restful

And as for Scooter's mania - how original!

I am very fond of cats but I might be fonder still of tulips! Those were beautiful. Scoundrel.
