You’ll find him between the catmint and the chives.

Beautiful photos of your furry friend, Susanne! He’s so handsome. 😻❤️
Aw thank you so much! I agree; he IS a handsome boy! 🙂
Ah, he looked so peaceful with his eyes closed, and then someone had to go and wake him up. Meow!
It wasn’t me! Must have been his big brother Tiger! 😺😺
Big brothers can be such pests.
He’s gorgeous! What a good spot for Naps and Spying on the rest of the yard.
Thank you! Yes, he’s carved out quite a nice place for himself. Can even have a few bites of catmint whenever he pleases!
Such a handsome boy.
Aw, thank you! 🙂 🙂
His own private jungle!!
Yes, indeed! 😻
Awwwwww !!! gorgeous !
I’m sure that spot is well-chosen to give Benji a good ‘killing ground’! 🙂
Best wishes, Pete.
My sweet Benji? You must be thinking of some other cat!! 😉 🙂
Very sweet and he looks right at home there!
All cozy and next to the catmint for a snack!
So darn cute!!
Aw, thanks so much! 🙂
What a handsome kitty!
Thank you so much! 🙂
If you carefully clip the chive flowers and put them in a small bud-type vase they will last as cut flowers for more than two weeks without wilting! I sheared my overgrown chive pot recently in preparation for repotting the windowsill planter, but couldn’t bear to toss the pretty little purple just-opening buds so did this and they have graced my reading table for 17 days and counting!
I mainly let them stay in the garden for the bees. But yesterday I cut my favorite orange rose and added some chives to the vase for color contrast.
Those are great closeups of Benji! I love the way he’s looking through the chives!
Summer Girl usually makes herself a little bed amongst the chives!
I guess it’s a cat thing! 😉
