I am having a bad day..i know i shouldn't moan, but i am getting so fed up of all this rain, i've got so much to do in the garden, and i think it may get waterlogged if it carries on like this...even the colour seems to have disappeared in all that grey!!.. I suppose the thing to do is to put on my wellies, coat & gloves and get out there & do it anyway instead of wingeing about the weather.....it just seems that if its not raining its blowing a gale, i must remember NOT to moan about all the sunshine... IF we are lucky enough to get any this summer.....Thats it.....NO MORE moaning, just positive thinking from now on, the weather will get better, the garden will survive and i will feel much better once i have done some work out there....rain or not i am going to get out there and do it...thats what Kerry & Dee would do i'm sure..so here goes....whats a bit of rain anyway !!!!!

My Peony is in bloom at last....i always feel that spring is on the way out and Summer on the way in when it finally flowers...its only the common variety, but it as been split and shared with lots of folk over the years, and i still love its splash of colour...I wish my pale pink one had survived though..must try & get another of those... with all the rain & winds i haven't been out for a few days..so it was a nice surprise to see it this morning.

These are pics of my oldest cat, Smokey.( he's 20 years old this year)..the poor old boy was at the vets yesterday..he was missing for several days.( we were worried something had happened to him) but he turned up outside the back door in a terrible state.....He must have got locked in someones shed and sat in oil or grease as he was covered in it....we bathed him but it didn't make any difference..his fur was so matted and he seemed to be in a lot of pain when we brushed him, he was very thin.....also he had to have all his teeth out, as they were loose ..but he did only had 3 !!!....the Vet said its best to do both things at once while he was sedated, to save having to sedate him at a later date, as its not good at his age...so now he is toothless as well as bald both sides..he looks like a Mohiccan, with his fur shaved each side. ..bless him.
The vets bill was £137 +.... cant believe the price of these things..are vets as expensive in other countries as they are here i wonder ?..but Smokey is worth it, they said his fur will grow back soon and he will be fine.
As soon as he got home he ate a huge meal...despite the vet saying he probably wouldn't eat that day, and then slept..he still eats every chance he gets, he looks a poor soul, but he still goes and sits in the garden, as long as its not too windy...i think now he hasn't got his thick fur coat he feels the cold more..specially all the wind we have been getting just lately.
