Angel decided to live with us after her owner got a new dog. She refused to cross the doorstep of her old home after such a betrayal. and set out to find a new home, A home without dogs. Despite all efforts to send her back, it was decided by all parties that she would live with us. For the past three years she has reigned as queen of our gardens and homes. A cat that knows what she wants and set out to get it, no matter what anyone else had to say.
In the above photo she is perched on top of the pergola, where she can see everything in her kingdom, and to make sure there are NO dogs anywhere in her world.

If I have extra money to spend on the gardens I look at my plant dream list and head out to shop.
So, sometimes I have to come up with some thrifty ways to solve other problems.
A few small cans of paint is easy on the budget and can do wonders for color problems in the garden. My rule is when in doubt, paint it. There is now a paint for every surface, even plastic. Before you go out to buy paint, check your basement and garage first. If you are like me, you probably have enough paint and brushes to do any number of projects.
