Clematis (Nirobe)- growing on our three posted trellis

"Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened." -
Anatole France

Dear Readers: I would like to thank each and every one of you for your sincere sentiments regarding the loss of our cat Leo. Although words can't bring him back, I appreciate your thoughtfulness and sentiments during this difficult time.

It amazes me that I type on a keyboard, and get to know people from all over the U.S. Canada and Europe (I welcome other parts of the world as well). I fell in love with blogging when I receieved my first post from overseas; I felt 'so international' :)

I will be back to the world of blogging. It is an outlet for me on many levels. Creating a post and receiving your replies are important to me.
Thank you again for your kind words about Leo.


  1. Ooh Kathleen,...that quote is amazing, beautiful!
    I didn't expect such an "early" post from you, but it's good to hear something from you. Take you time, we'll be here...XXX, Carmie.

  2. Good morning dear friend, Likewise

  7. Each and every creature touches my soul. I am so sorry to hear of Leo and that he has left this earth.
    I envision him happy in a sunny spot, near the purple flowers.

  9. Oh Leo, what a sweetie!

    I have heard that your pets go to heaven and wait by the gates 'till you get there. I love that visual. I am sure there are some fabulous clematis climbing that arbor underplanted with tons and tons of catnip!

    My pup Cheddar sends big kisses.

  10. Kathy -- I agree so much with that quote!
    The clematis is beautiful. We have a dark purple one and I just bought a red to plant beside it. Can't wait to see the two blooming together.

  11. That's one of my favorite quotes, also! That's a beautiful photo of your clematis....
