23 Feb, 2010

 

Hi Jacque, hope you're well. It was a pleasant surprise to find these buds then Jacque. I think these plants are really good to give a splash of colour early on. I tend to removes some leaves so the flowers can be seen.

23 Feb, 2010

 

Im good Thanx Dawn :) I remove any Dead Brown Leaves i find, they soon grow back :)

23 Feb, 2010

 

Lovely sight. These are a real wonder. Winters over under my snow and shoots these up before the grass even sprouts! Looks like you'll have bunches of blooms.

23 Feb, 2010

 

Thanx GT :)

23 Feb, 2010

 

They grow so fast Jacque, I remove loads of leaves. I sometimes even remove some green leaves to reveal the flowers.

23 Feb, 2010

23 Feb, 2010

 

I feel bad doing it Jacque, but you just wouldnt see the flowers otherwise.
BTW, how is Puss?

23 Feb, 2010

23 Feb, 2010

 

Sounds like Puss Heaven at yours Jacque :-) They are so clever, arent they. Maybe you could get some kiddy locks for the fridge door.
Its nice when they dont wander too far, nothing worse than when they stay out all night and not there on the door step in the morning :-(((
My Ronnie is having his b...s snipped on Thursday too.

23 Feb, 2010

 

I love your New Family Members Dawn :) Kittens r so Funny although its been a few yrs any of our 3 were babys i still remember what Naughtyness & Games they get up 2 ;) Will Roxy be getting done 2? :)

23 Feb, 2010

 

They are naughty but very very funny Jac, wish they could stay like this forever.
The vets suggested that Ronnie gets done at 5 mths and Roxy at 6 months, so he's being done on 25th Feb and she's being done on 25th March.

23 Feb, 2010

 

Theyl turn out even more Gorgeous being Neutered Dawn :)

23 Feb, 2010
