New Fuchsias from Thornton Nurseries arrived today, and had been pushed in through the cat flap even though I was at home :(
Bella was not amused !

They are all replacements for ones that had died – Quaser, Bicentanial, David, Checkerboard, Pepermint Stick, and Celia Smedley :-

I’ve got more on the way from another place. They’ll arrive soon :)

cat flap or not they do look healthy Hywel. I will look forward to seeing them in flower later in the year.

Thanks for your comments :)

The thing about the cat flap is that it stops Bella from going out when postpeople push parcels in through it, and that means she can't go to the loo and could do it in the house. She's never done it before but there's always a first time, and it isn't healthy to have a cat peeing in the house is it ...

and I was at home so I don't know why they didn't knock the door !

Yes I can understand that Hywel a lot of parcel and some post men are lazy or always in a rush . Perhaps a note on the cat flap saying attention to parcel men do not leave parcels blocking cat flap.

That's exciting Hywel. Shame you lost so many but tis always nice to start off young ones. I think I lost my young Celia Smedley through dithering where to plant her so she was still in a pot over the winter. How stupid can you get. Bella, make sure you "go" well before the post's due for couple of weeks just in case...

Hywel reminds me of a man on our allotment field, he was always saying " The greenhouse is bulging " !

Our well-trained postman rings the bell to let us know there is a parcel on the step outside.

We have a cat flap in the kitchen door for Sage but if we are in the kitchen she pesters us until we open the door for her. She's in charge!

Plants look healthy, Hywel.
