This and that and my cat

Place for the blue hour:

Unfortunately I don't know the name of this beautiful looking and delightful smelling rose:

This is the painter rose "Claude Monet":


A white Clematis:


Pink bells with honey bee:


And our cat Sammy:

That Claude Monet rose is absolutely gorgeous, had never seen one before! Your table setting looks so cozy in between all these flowers...beautiful! I smiled when I saw your cat...he looks like one of the garden statues:-) Wonderful pictures as usual!!

I have had also a Claude Monet rose in a container, but it's so cold in the winter and now she is dead.

Carol, you know, I like your cat-photo!
The rose - isn't it Heritage from D. Austin??

Pea my Cat is a female, we have no men/male in our house ;-)

Al no I have "Heritage" too and posted it here a few days ago and it looks totally different! How sad about your CM rose! I've had a "Winterschutz" (winter protection cover?) around my rose container in winter.

oooh! Your cat is so gorgeous. Cats and gardens belong together. Cats always seek out the beautiful and the comfortable places in the world.

What an incredible coloured rose, the Claude Monet one, its petals are truly beautiful. Thank for recommending me the Pam Garrison website.

Sammy looks very happy there keeping guard between those two stone balls. Your so lucky having all those flowers, I had to search around really hard to find some fuschia's to take to an art lesson.

I really like your blue corner in the garden. Lovely! And so romantic too. The roses are amazing! And your cat so majestic!

You've captured that quality of light perfectly in your photo Carol.
I've never seen the Claude Monet rose either. It's very pretty.
I sure do wish they would invent a "smell" button for computers soon!
I love the photo of Sammy!

Lis said...

Deinen namenlose Rose könnte die Heritage sein und Al hat wieder mal recht :-)

Alice said...

Goodness me, isn't your cat blue or pink to match your garden?...lol

Carol said...

Thank you all, Sammy is very happy about the compliments she's got and that she is not blue Alice ;-p

Welcome to my blog Anna and Julia! :D

Lis no Al is not right because I'm sure that it is not the "Heritage", just read my answer post above or my post at the MSG Forum ;-)

Your photography is very professional. I especially like the bee in the flower picture.
Your tuxedo cat looks very healthy and content.
