  1. Great answers and I was touched that you named me as your BFGF because I am. We have similar likes. Blue is my best color. My favorite tree was my Tree of Pain.

  2. Congratulations on your award and tag. Your garden looks lovely. It was great learning more about you. I cry if I wake up from a nap and don’t see Mom, too.

  13. catfromhell on said:

    Wow! What a ling post! After reading about all that napping, Me needs one myselfs! Your flowers looks beautious! Me can’t wait for flowers here.

  14. Your life sounds very fun. I think staying inside all the time would feel safe. I hope someday, you will try your climbing tower again, after the Christmas tree cooties come off it. Once the guy across the hall carved a jack-o-lantern and put it by his door. I was pretty sure it was going to kill me.

    Love and licks,

  15. Concatulations :o) You would visit me? Oh that would be great… I wish you would have wings :o) I like your answer about your favourite smell :o)

  16. We still don’t have ANY flowers…but some of the snow is melting and some of the spring birds are coming back…and there are critters to watch from the window, so it’s not all bad!
    The REAL Maple Syrup Mob

  17. Hiya Savvy…Fun learning all these interesting things about you today and concatulations on your awards…Momz wants to know what your twitter handle is…she couldn’t find it on your blog

  18. Gee your garden is so beautiful Savvy! There’s still no sign of Spring here but we’re staying hopeful. Easter Sunday it’s supposed to get all the way up to sixy! WOWZERS! I’ll be at your pawty – you can count on that!

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  19. Wow – you had a lot of work to do to get this post ready sweetie. I’m very impressed – and all without thumbs! But then I always knew you were extra good at what you did. Mario smooches!

  20. Your flowers are gorgeous. What lovely stones. We has lots of cat stuff so we guesses we would get the doggie ones. ~Scylla & Family

  21. loved your answers Savvy,you are the sweetest,xx Speedy

    Hey there! I LOVED your answers to all the questions. News is your favourite show on television? You’re so SOPHISTICATED, Savvy. I admit, I do enjoy watchin’ The Coop on his nightly show but… my very favourite show is The Big Bang Theory. I’m not as sophisticated as you, I think.

    I also LOVE your pictures of the Dutch Iris. The peep had made a dismal attempt at growing ’em last year but I’m hopin’ for better things in 2013. I know she planted a whole whack of ’em last fall. We’ll see…


    • oh we wondered what those Iris were called…is that the purple one with yellow?? What are the little purple ones with like bells…they really have a nice fragrance. Mom brought in two of the tall Iris and a bunch of the little bells and I was ready for a taste of two until Mom swished them away.

      • orientallily001 on said:

        Iris first… Yes, the blue with yellow ones. You have two pictures of them, I believe. I’m assumin’ the plants are ’bout 18 to 24 inches tall. Those are Dutch Irises. They come in other colours, too. I particularly like blue ones ’cause they look nice with my fur. At least, I think they would look nice with my fur if the PEEP COULD EVER FIGURE OUT HOW TO GROW ‘EM PROPERLY. MOUSES!

        Now for the little purple one with bells… You mean the ones you call bluebells? They have strap-like leaves and you say, in another picture, that they grow everywhere. Those ones? They ARE bluebells! Either English or Spanish. Hard to tell the difference, I think. The peep once judged a spring flower show (very unusual ’round here) and the schedule included both English and Spanish Bluebells and I know she was studyin’ up a storm on those beforehand. I remember her sayin’ “MOUSES!” a lot ’cause not only do they look alike, but the plant peeps keep changin’ their botanical names and whatnot. Just to confuse MY peep, I should think. Have to keep her on her toes, you know.

        You also have a picture of some purplish blue violets. They would be little. Were you talking ’bout those ones?


  23. That’s lots of interesting information!
    My human loves to see the little flowers. I think she is spring-deprived (VBP) 😉

  24. We would visit Easy also 🙂 xx CATS

Waving paw...HI!...what'd 'cha think...??
