Speaking of my garden, it rained in Mwadui while we were away, and with dear Michael tending the flower beds and lawn, and cossetting the herbs and vegetables, it is a lush wonderland of greenery and welcoming coolth!
The lettuce, parsley (flat-leafed and moss) as well as the basil, fennel, sage and oregano was bursting out of the containers. Michael and I have transplanted all the small lettuce plants to beds in the garden
Michael had the privilege (his word not mine) of watching Ginger in the garden every morning in between sweeping, watering and tidying the patio. Shadow, because of his disobedience and near-death experience last month, had to remain indoors with Ambrose for the three weeks we were out. Shadow seemed very happy when I took him out for the first time again on Tuesday morning. Ambrose, of course, just followed his Unca Shadow and Dad Ginger around the garden.
Shadow was thrilled to be outside after three weeks indoors. Michael kept saying Shadow is enjoying his freedom again!
The two little kittens have grown into enormous teenagers. Tipsy now weighs 5kg while Topsy tipped the scales at 4.4kg. As soon as the weekend is behind me, I'm going to arrange for the vet, Dr Mwaluko from Mwanza to pay us a visit. They both need their Identipet chips inserted and to have their inoculations administered. They both need to be snipped. Then I can think about slowly integrating them into the Hedges Cat-society in our house! (They both still occupy a sealed off part of our house while the "big" cats have use of the rest of the house!)
Quite amazing to thing that these little guys have grown...

Tipsy poses beautifully for me!
Here's wishing you all a wonderful weekend ahead!
