Hosta eating cat!

I never thought I would have to worry about my cat eating my Hosta's, after all she is an indoor cat.
 
 
I bought a few miniatures a few weeks ago and was keeping them in the back room until the weather got warm enough to plant them outside.
'Grand Prize'


'Thumbelina'

And this one called 'Masquarade'




 
After doing a little research online, I discovered that 'Masquarade' was supposed to be variegated, and that is was commen for this Hosta to revert to all green. While not impressed with my all green 'Masquarade', I discovered that one section had the proper colors.
 

I decided that I would remove the part with the correct colors when I got home from work, and repot it in its own pot and it's all green siblings in another pot. Then the cat found it ...


Anyone else have plant eating cats?

Where does the time GO?

Seems hard to believe that my last post was almost a month ago!
The snow is all gone now, and we have had some nice weather.
I have started yard clean up and I've even seen the first bloom!
 
 
Today is Earth Day, and Mother Nature is  not happy.
Snow and hail today, with a chance of snow overnight.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed it is the last snow we see this year!

Waiting for spring

Just because the calendar says it is spring doesn't mean it is!
A while the snow has been melting, it is still a long way until I will be able to get back into the gardens. I am chomping at the bit!
I have been watching my bird bath, which was almost covered in snow.

Soon!
