Congratulations! Get the older cat his/her very own pot of catnip as a 
peace offering, too.


Didn't think of brining some inside in a pot (these are both INSIDE ONLY
cats - will miss that as Casey loved to "help" us in the garden - actually,
he mostly just saundered around the yard, or sat on the bench and watched
the fish)  By Tuesday evening they were tolerating each other, even touched
noses and yesterday were playing, so the adjustment has been faster than we
ever thought possible!

	On the gardening side, the pink dogwood is just coming into bloom on the
north side of the house along with the Viriginia blue bells (Mertensia) and
Uvilaria (can't spell this morning!) The Virburnum is really opening up -
covered with a mass of EXTREMELy fragrant blooms.  Wish they woud last when
cut and brought inside.  Having one o the dinners for our gourmet group
here Sat. night and wanting to figure out what flower to use in the napkin
rings that will last the evening without water.  I can use water in these
napking rings, but it's been my experience with them that they are too easy
for guests to accidentally tip over.  I used cherry blossoms for Easter
Sunday, but they will be finished by Sat. I fear. Should have lots of sweet
cherries this year!
