I hope everyone had a lovely Easter weekend! Mine was filled with a lot of sunshine and gardening. The weather was so lovely and warm, and for the most part the stuff I wore over the weekend looked as if I had escaped from the set of Lawrence of Arabia - sadly, no photos. (I was desperately trying not to burn myself.) On Saturday I took poor Cassiopeia to the groomer's. Her long hair had started to get all matted weeks ago already, but we couldn't get an earlier appointment. By the time we got there, she looked (and felt) so bad that we didn't have a choice but to have her shaved. Now she looks like a weird alien kitty; her head looks so disproportionate compared to her skinny body. She clearly feels better about herself though. She purrs affectionately and follows me everywhere.
I also figured that I'd see what would happen if I just planted some lettuce and pak choi seeds outside already. I know it is early, and the nights are still cold, but I think we should be okay with frost.
Blue was making rounds in the garden today, just checking out the new containers and the raked (yes, it is raked!) ground.
