Cats are on our minds just now so I thought I would look out some old photos to honour the many cats that have shared my gardens, as an adult and in my childhood. Some are borrowed from friends and relatives. This required a bit of a trawl through old photo albums and some rather varied photo quality. But their roles in the garden have been many and various:
We have had flower lovers
Raised bed hoggers
Seed bed squashers
Front door cats
Keepers of the fairy mounds
And this one was a secret garden blogger.
So, in no particular order, here’s a toast to Roxy, Robbie, Pooh, Tut n’ Kamun, Purrse, Smokey and Chelsea. They have all been committed gardeners in their own special way.
