  1. Hi Anne Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful garden with us, it’s truly beautiful And haven’t you been busy making all that pomegranate juice. Is that your granddaughter picking the grapes ? she is so pretty. We must Skype again one of the days because I have some questions to ask you about gardening, maybe you could let me know when that would be convenient for you.

    It would be lovely to catch up on Skype, Rita…will get back to you on that. Yes, that’s my little grand daughter, Amber. She is delightful. Reminds me so much of my daughter at that age.

  5. What a lovely garden! Zac looks like my Amber…..she only goes outside with a lead on at all times, the birds need to be protected. I could just eat those grapes….mmmmmmm…

      Thank you! Yes, Zak has a little piece of garden down narrow side of house with rocks and ferns where he goes without a harness. No birds go there. We watch him of course, but he seems happy with his little patch. Rest of garden off limits without his harness, but we have been doing this since he was a kitten! 💟💝

      • That’s the trick isn’t it, doing things from kittenhood. I put the harness on Amber when she was 10 weeks old and she very quickly worked out that this was the only way outside and outside was fascinating! She’s 10 yrs old now and very arthritic but still wants to go out on her good days.
