CRASH!

OW!OW!OW! I hurt so bad, I managed to fall down stairs again, the outside concrete ones along the side of the house. I was going slow, even holding onto the side of the house when the nerves in my legs just decided to wander off to smells the flowers, leaving me unsupported. WHAM. Right on my ass, and I scuffed up my palms. It's so frustrating not being able to trust your own body to work right.

On the bright side... With lots and lots of help from Mom and John we got the weeds pulled and the two flower planters in the yard replanted. I planted Salvia and Roses (Perennials) so we should not have to do this again next year, just pull weeds/prune when the time comes.

Oh and Catnip, I planted catnip for the kitties. :)

*winces* OW. I hope the bumps and bruises heal soon - you must be achy at the moment.

I see lots of posts from people about their gardens and the state thereof. *smile* Spring has come to many, it seems, and in due course I expect to hear (and see!) about flowers and produce from the happy growers.

Am wondering what it would be like to have a fresh catnip bed in my yard. As it is, my kitties make do with stuff imported from the US, which is all dried out when it gets to the Philippines. But they love it. One goes absolutely cross-eyed with delight when I wave the catnip sock in front of it.

I can send you some seeds (If it's not illegal to grow in a pot there.) Pot in a sunny spot on the porch rail works. When the plant is mature, cut it, and hand it to dry and then crumble and let the kitties get punch drunk. LOL! :)

Eee, late reply - thank you for the offer, but no. Not that it's illegal, but the local postal service is going through a "shenaningans against the taxpayers" phase and the package is likely to get lost. :p

Cats and catnip = instant day brightener.

Oh hon the seed packets are tiny, they'll fit in a regular envelope. :) Send me your address and I'll get you at least a package, they only cost a buck at the local nursery. :)

Heh. You're gonna have some silly actin' cats.

By the way, are there any plants that REPEL ferals without hurting them? I want to put some herbs in, but last time I tried that all my little pots got tipped over and dug out by curious kitties.

Last I checked, Cats eat just about any plant. They'll tell you to plant peppermint or lavender....

Needy loves peppermint and Krishna wants to roll in my crushed lavendar herbs... HA!

Try tossing Orange peels (Citrus peels) outside, my cats don't like those. Coffee grounds too, sprinkle your leftover coffee grounds into the soil around your plants. Good for plants, kitties no likey.

You can also buy Coyote/Fox urine granules to sprinkle around the perimeter of your yard. Keeps out Kitties and racoons.
