Beau-dacious


My gardening pal, Anne Hardeman, is a fellow cat lover as well. Her kitties all stay indoors for their safety, but even inside cats have "cats in gardens" moments!


Anne writes: "This is my Maine Coon kitty Beau lounging in my greenhouse window. Leave it to this sweet giant to find the primo spot for sunbathing! It might be cold outside, but he is happy to settle in with my miniature orchids..."

Last week I stayed at the lovely Pheasant Run Farm Bed and Breakfast in Lancaster, PA. On the grounds were several barn cats (they actually live in the old chicken house). Most of them were very camera-shy, but I managed to get shots of two of the friendlier ones.

And here also are a few more photos of the farm setting to give you an idea of the beauty of the place. In a few more weeks, everything should be bursting into bloom and be even more gorgeous!

Tree Buddy


Joe Luebke of Hyattsville, MD, USA, said, “This is our neighbor Rose Fletcher cat, Tulli. She loves to climb this ‘Forest Pansy’ Redbud and eat the flowers. She showed up at their house and had six kittens -- all adopted off. She has been spayed and hangs out with two dogs now.”

Joe is a Horticulturist with GSA and was a longtime staffer at the Washington National Cathedral's gardens.


The photo was taken by Elizabeth Payer.

Going Dotty


Constance Ann McAlpin  lives at Pleasant View Farm in Franklin, Indiana, USA. She posted this photo recently to her Facebook page captioned: "Take the time to stop and smell the flowers! The Pasque Flowers are beginning to bloom!"

Constance writes, "This is DottaOne or Dot for short. We got him at 6 weeks of age and he turned 3 last Friday. He is my very special gardening buddy. I'm sure he would love to be on your cats in gardens blog!"
