I spotted my cat perched on the edge of my birdbath having a drink once, but didn't have my camera handy :shock:

Mumchook it is a salvia....pops up everywhere....I think Abwal has the same one....


Thee I was just lucky to have the camera on hand (was going to take those pellet photos) :D ......
Midge, Thee don't think he will ever work up thirst..... though sometimes when he is following me around I do wish there was some way I could put him to work...you know go and get the wheelbarrow ,dig a few holes...... :lol: ( I should take a photo of him when he is in bed for the night....he has his coat on then we have a choice of three ladies dressing gowns to go over top...he always looks so snug )

Oooh, a salvia - I thought they grew much bigger! I must check out the smaller ones.

I have larger varieties, including a gorgeous purple "thing" that's heading for 2 metres. It's right outside my kitchen window and all manner of birds come down to it, plus blue-banded bees and other critters.

I just received an order of goodies from GE, so will check if they have smaller salvias...

Thank you!

Yes, Tilly, we do have that salvia and a red one that is very similar. Not sure of the name, but Luzy would know.

My sister's dog drinks out of their wine barrel fish pond.

Who says gold fish have short memory spans? Everytime she goes to the bowl (they must see the paws on the side) they DIVE straight to the bottom until she goes away.
