Yesterday Chris moved my laptop upstairs and connected it directly to the YFI.  My computer works faster with fewer problems and my helper likes it very much as I spend more time with her.  I am starting her on the kidney herbs today in hopes of helping to keep the disease at bay.

Now when I sit at my computer I have a window to look out of.  Right now the hill is full of jewel weed but I will remove it and maybe put a bird house and move some plants there.  Its a nice view of the woods and the big chestnut tree.  Much wildlife abounds there.

 

 

CATNIP HEAVEN

Yesterday I picked some catnip to dry, and will stripping the leaves I threw the stems on the floor.  Soon after the two cats that can open the door from  the dining room to the living room were in there having the time of their life.

THE GARDEN

The pink morning glories were given to me by my friend Susan.  They are beautiful growing up around the bird house.  I have had that bird house well over 10 years.  My Mom bought it for me, it has a metal roof and sides.  I did have to replace the wooden bottom this year.  This was a popular bird house when it was in the back near my computer window.  I do hope the birds find it again .

THE PUMPKIN

I was picking some cucumbers for our supper and noticed this pumpkin hanging in mid air.  I am going to find some sort of mesh bag and put it in that and hang it off the fence.

We are having some soft rain today and it will rain the rest of the day.  I will leave you this day with a picture of more morning glories and another view of Louise’s  rug.  Members of her family.

I’m sure the cat nip you have in the US is different from the one we can buy here I grow a lot of Nepeta but our cats ignore it totally I would love to make some cat nip toys for them, the ones you can buy are very expensive.

I would love some seed Carole or a small piece of root, would that be possible? I know we used to be able to get it here many years ago, I am guessing it’s another thing that the EU has said we can’t have.
