Taking a Mulligan

Patty Hankins of Fine Art Floral Photography ( submitted this photo of Mulligan. He is new-ish part of the growing cat family at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA.

She said, "I ran into a member of the Longwood Gardens Rodent Control Team yesterday – in the conservatory where the cats aren’t supposed to be."
You may recall we featured Belin, another Longwood Gardens feline, awhile back on this blog -- here is a link.

Saint Getrude's Day

Here is an encore post:

Thank you to the Crazy Cat Ladies Community on Facebook for letting my know about Saint Gertrude of Nivelles, who is the patron saint of Cats AND Gardening. No lie! I'm Catholic, adore boths cats and gardening, and had never heard of her. Today, the 17th of March, is her Saint's Day, which she shares with St. Patrick. "Fine weather on her feast day meant it was time to begin spring planting." This may also explain why St. Patrick's Day is the traditional day for early spring crop sowing.
