Cats and innards



Yesterday: Cassie sits on a plant while watching an insect. Well, she wouldn't want to sit on the chilly concrete slab, would she? (Does anyone know what that plant is? It's deciduous with spires of small, rather insignificant flowers in July. I grow it for the foliage - now greatly improved by Cassie.)


Meanwhile, Sirius surveys his terrain. Those irises are good, don't you think? I love irises.

Thank you so much for your good wishes regarding my innards. So far, I regret to say, they continue to be somewhat volcanic. This is difficult since my mum is now in hospital with precisely the opposite problem, and because she's in the oncology ward, with lots of people on chemotherapy with suppressed immune systems, I didn't feel I could go and see her today in my diseased state. Though arguably my mum could do with a dose of what I've got... .

Enough. I shall go and practise my difficult Mozart, even though I've called off tomorrow's piano lesson.

When I saw the title of today's post, my first thought was that the cats had left some gruesome offering for you. Sorry to hear that both you and your mother are unwell. This particular household has been afflicted by the French version... let's blame the unseasonable weather (seriously! I am still wearing socks in June. Incroyable). Hope all will be better soon.

Also seen here, a cat by the pond with the rear end of a frog dangling out of its mouth. Not a pretty sight. I hope you and your mother are soon recovered.

I wondered whether your plant might be some kind of astilbe? Have you seen it flower yet? It certainly looks familiar, but my grey cells can't bring it's name to mind with any certainty. :)

I'm so sorry to hear about your Mum in the hospital. And you and your volcano. I hope you'll both be better soon. You MUST be -- there's a wedding coming up!

Sorry to hear you and your Mom have been ill. As for Wolfy (Mozart), I always find that he's good for what ails you even if he's difficult.

Mum used to get amazingly horrible slugs in Dundas Street so I sympathise. Do hope you are feeling better and your mum too.

Plenty of innards turn up here as presents from the cats....Sorry to hear that you and your Mum are both unwell. I hope the volcano soon quietens down.....
