Lovely flowers and lovely pictures! The cats seem to enjoy the arrival of spring too!

Thank you, Thalia. The garden seems to be coming alive once more and whenever I stroll round it, the cats join me for the walk.

RUTH said...

A fabulous tour...so many beautiful things to see.

Thanks, Ruth. Finally, after the long haul of winter, our all-too-short gardening season has arrived.

Your photographs are beautiful. And your name, Wildlife Gardener, says a lot about you as a person. I hope you have a backyard wildlife habitiat to go with the garden part. I do.

Thank you for visiting my blog and for your comments about Life and Death issues.

How kind of you to visit again and show further interest in the layout of the garden, Abraham Lincoln. I have log piles scattered around the garden for insects, nettle patches and dandelions for butterflies as well as all the nectar borders for the bees, wasps and hoverflies, seed and fruit-bearing trees and shrubs for the birds and the ponds for the pond-living creatures. Swallows nest in the barn and martins on the eaves of the house.

The flower photos are gorgeous! But I love, love, love the cats. They look like they own the place.

I can't wait for spring. We still have snow on the ground. It's very depressing.

I'll be coming over here often for my dose of color.

Beautiful blog!

Hello,
thank you very much for your comment on my blog.
I have posted one new article about the decline of bees in your country.
Perhaps you would like to read the complete article on my blog.

The diversity of bees and the flowers they pollinate have both declined significantly in Britain and the Netherlands over the last 25 years, researchers have found.

cheers from Canada

Your trout lilies are beautiful ... and seeing a marsh marigold made my heart sing.

The ground here is covered with snow again and showing little signs of going away. Spring will come soon ...

And your primroses ... I love them!

Thank you, Monkey for visiting my photo a day. We love the cats too. They most definitely enhance the garden, and, as you say, make themselves at home. I look on them as my garden tigers.

Thank you, Guild_Rez for your articles on the decline of bees. i will be back on your blog shortly to read the one you've mentioned.

Kate, good of you to visit my blog. Glad you like the flowers. Yours will bloom when the snow goes and I'll be visiting your blog to see them.

I love all the cats!! The tabby and white (Taz?) looks real sweet.
You have a lovely garden, full of life!

Thank you for your gracious comments, Salix. We love our garden, especially enhanced by the cats, who all have a rescue story. They are spiritual creatures.
