Well, there you have it -- Mr. Gyps, eyeing Chick A. Dee and wondering what his ancestors would have done.
No doubt, they would have flown through the screen with their enormous brown paws, swatted the feeder and enjoyed a tasty hors d'oeuvre.
Alas, The Marmalade Gypsy must settle for Fancy Feast, Science Diet and an occasional Pounce.
Ancestors had it good, he thinks. It's always greener...
Speaking of green, my "Farm"...
...is doing rather well!
The lettuce is nearing the end of its cycle and it's mighty sweet and tasty.
I have enough basil for pesto this weekend.
The peppers are sprouting and I have some wee green tomatoes promising to plump up by July or August.
The sweet peas are continually cut and brought into the house.
And the geraniums are full of face and very cheerful.
When I brush by the lavender, I enjoy a glorious fragrance. Perhaps I'll try some lavender wands this weekend!
Enjoy your weekend -- Public TV Pick of the Week coming tomorrow or Sunday!
