'Morning Dear Rose,<quoted text>
Good Morning Lady Eleanor...
Never worry about returning a post to me.. I know life takes preference over correspondence... I'm sorry to hear that Ginger Bailey was having more problems but very happy to know that you have a good neighbor willing to help you when you needed it..
Right now My Sister is fretting over her cat.. She seems to have developed an infection in her milk glands and possibly even tumors.. The infection is draining and I went to the Veterinary Supply store and got some antibiotics to treat the infection.. and My Sister is waiting to see if that will clear up the problem if it doesn't then she will be taking George to the Vet.. I know George is a funny name for a girl cat but it goes to a cartoon where the character says I'm gonna love you and squeeze you and take you home and call you George... I call her Pudding Pie.. after the nursery rhyme..
While I love roses and consider them to be my favorite flower I have always thought that irises were beautiful and I have always had them in my gardens... I have the tall Purple and White bearded, a light Lavender and a very pretty yellow in my garden right now...
I want to add a few of the pure white ones as well as some of the deep pink this year..
Those crazy Dianthus have surprised me three years running.. I don't know why they don't die back but they don't.. They are a beautiful flower to have in the yard.. I have four varieties..
They get so many blooms on them and add so much color.. When the blooms fade I just cut them back and they bloom all over again..
OK so it's late and I need to get myself to bed... I hope that You and Yours will have a great day today...
Sending you all of my best wishes...
well, I have always got so much to tell you, so I tend to put it
to one side, did the same with Flower's post...sort of tried to put
it to rights by leaving a message for her on her own thread....
Thanks for all your good wishes for Ginger Bailey..I got a cone
from Amazon..a particular soft one which collapses when the cat
rests his head....unfortunately there is no way he will have it on.
My neighbour was kind, but she knows it all, you know what I mean, and we ended up, at her suggestion binding his hind foot so he could not rip at his dressing....now I know my cat...and knew he wouldn't be happy...so no surprise when I got up early to check
on him, to see he had somehow managed, in spite of the 'sticky
stuff'(zinc oxide tape) firmly holding it in place, to rip it off his foot, along with a huge clump of his ginger fur...
My neighbour meant well sure enough.....:}
What a worry for your Sister, has George recently had kittens by
any chance? Or an older cat? It is to be hoped that the anti-biotics will take effect, I don't know if you or your Sister have considered applying a warm compress to assist the draining...just
a thought..along with the anti-biotics of course.
Please let me know how she goes on, will ya?!
Beautiful mental image of your garden Rose....I have a video of mine I would like to send you, will try to find later.
Have a wonderful day my friend....<3 xoxox
