An awesome Mother’s Day, pancake cat, soil comparisons and pretty things. :-)

I had a rather amusing start to the morning! While heading out to feed the outside cats, I heard a noise from an unusual direction. I had startled Nicky the Nose on the sun room roof!

I posted previously about seeds we ordered from Rare Seeds. Since then, I've placed another small order from them, which I will talk about below. (all links should open in new tabs, so you won't lose your place. 🙂 ) The problem is, our first order hasn't arrived yet.
