Bella keeps the cacti company until spring arrives :)

I put some of my cacti to overwinter in the conservatory because they are more tender but most of them are in a frost free Perspex shelter.

If I could write on paper with a quill
While sitting on this windowsill
From window view where I sit and stare
For my master with his camera I do not care
Who wants to look into such an ugly thing
When I can see what makes my heart sing
The beautiful views of garden and hills
Where often I go to get my thrills.
I am dreaming and waiting for the sun to peep through
So I can chase a mouse or two.

She is lovely and a great capture Hywel.

She is such a lovely cat Hywel and looks lost in thought or could it be admiration, as she looks out onto your garden?!

Oh lovely! I love cats. Can't have them, my son is allergic.

Lovely Bella, day dreaming of the warmer days, and the adventures ahead.

She knows she looks gorgeous from any angle.

Thank you Thruppenybit, Bella enjoyed your rhyme :) x

Wildrose I think Bella was checking that our neighbour's adopted stray cat wasn't coming up the path lol ...

What a shame Aleyna :( You can see Bella's photos though ...

Linda Bella is daydreaming, she lives in a world of her own :)

So she does Sue :)

It's especially for her and I am very pleased Bella liked it she is wise I think I would sooner look out on your lovely garden and views of the hills rather than an ugly machine lol. I bet she thinks what's that horrid machine you ve got up by your face 😂

Bella is the queen of cats Hywel I can easily imagine her with a crown on her gorgeous head Lol x

She's a lovely cat Hywel ... our Megan sleeps pretty much all day now ... :o(

Thank you Thruppenny bit ! :) x

Bella would enjoy a crown Amy lol x

I think the older a cat gets the more she sleeps Shirley ! Megan must be a good age now. Bella is 8 and been here 6 years in May.

Oh my, can't believe you have had Bella for 6 years ...
where have they gone?

You're right Hywel ... Megan is almost 16 now so I guess she's entitled to sleep a lot! Funny how she always wakes up for food though ... :o)

Your welcome Hywel 😊 x

sweet Bella. She and Rufus are nearly the same age. wanted to post one of my fav nurseries (Belgian Nursery) which has an advert on Fb. so you could see their latest sale of succulents and cacti. They have a display of barrel cacti that would make your eyes water... I shared it and tagged you...have you seen it?

They have been in the same spot for many years (on Highway 24 between Guelph and Kitchener) When I was a student I used to go there and wander about for an outing. That wonderful photosynthesis-laden air...and the beautiful plants. It was a delightful respite for a poor student.

Cats love their food Shirley lol :)

Lori I don't look at facebook much. I find it rather impersonal and it gets on my nerves. I prefer GoY. I'll take a look at your post soon, thank you :)

have to agree with you about Fb, Hywel. oddly I found it intrusive...a little too personal. I've been skipping days and only going in once a week, gradually weaning myself. It can become habit forming, I find. Going back to the beginning I joined at the request of my grand-niece and it was a young person site. Now all my retired relatives and most of my childhood friends are on there... It's not cool for the youngsters anymore. I put a link to the Belgian Nursery in my comments. It's a quick pann around the cacti and succulent greenhouse.

I saw the link, thanks.
I joined a few groups on facebook and when I log in (which is not often) I just look at those.
