On a different subject I have an apology to make to the local cat population. As most gardeners will know...when you dig over a new flower bed, chances are that a cat will try and use it as a litter tray. I dug over one such border and planted a few leftover seeds that my son had given me. The next day I cursed the local cats for digging in it. Today I caught the real culprit.....a blackbird. There he was furiously pecking and digging away with his claws. I think he was after ants...but he may have eaten my newly planted seeds. Sorry cats.
The postie brought me 2 more ATC's. This time from the Crafts Beautiful monthly swap. The theme was black and white. They are really beautiful...and I must say that the scanned picture in no way does them justice. Thanks go to Christine(Cambiel) and Tracy(m10tjm) and of course maggie50 for hosting the swap.
