Nature: What you see when you are in the Garden of Chaos is… well… some chaos. We just love the ecclectic approach and usually grow both flowers and weed together. Lemon Balm features here, as does Viola. You can even see part of a rosebush. But the rest is good old-fashioned weed. Why do you grow it in pots you ask ? Hmm. Well. Ain’t it lovely ?
Cats: Frankette boldly exploring her environs. I just love the way she peeked up from in that box like that. The box is definitely a must-have fixture in the Garden of Chaos since all resident felines have been seen in, on, upon, against, behind or underneath it at least once so far. It is sturdy enough to hold even Bean Sidhe.
my wife enjoys planting in this eclectic style as well. However my “small” doggie loves his little kitty cats, and when they come up to need against him he throws his big lanky leg out over top of them as if to say I’m glad you’re here. The problem is his leg crushes the cat flat, but fortunately the cats enjoy him and he enjoys the cats. I love cats because by nature they are inquisitive, your picture demonstrates that well. Happy WW
Just to remind you, we have 9 main players in this game (besides some extras):
("wherewolf" crazy/sleepy cat) - black with a little bit of white, très couch-potato
Bean Sidhe WOAH-He’s-Big-!
(a.k.a. Banshee "wailing ghost" = mythical Irish ghost/typical outcry of any visitor) - white and orange tabby part Maine Coon, trying to grow larger than the kitchen counter is high
Hrimnir de WC-plonzer, Protteke
("Shrouded with Frost" = mythical Norse giant/the toilet-plunger/little fart) - white, grey and cream tabby part Norwegian Forestcat, slowly turning into a very solid bloke indeed
("Norse Goddess of love, beauty and fertility/Stomach on Legs") - female grey tabby gastropod, mommy of Isegrim, tries to convince us that she is eternally starving and needs to be fed NOW
("Grey Helmet/very busy critter") - iron grey with faint tabby markings, son of Freya, "dondersteen" could also be interpreted as "stone that falls very very hard" because as I'm typing this he's 5 years old and weighing 5.5 kilos...
("Stong Man" in Japanese/"Rotten One" or "Bad One") possibly half-brother of Gorgor, ginger shorthair tabby with white socks and breast, the most wild of the two youngsters and prone to attack when angry; known to ambush those bigger and fiercer than himself
A feral young tomcat who dwells in the House of Chaos solely for eats and sleeps. Faster than his shadow hence his name.
Chuck sNorris van Droomwereld
Chuck van Droomwereld ("of Dreamworld") is his pedigree name, the rest refers to a well-known martial arts actor and "snor" actually means moustache. This is a very silent Maine Coon with majestical whiskers who's never heard but quite well seen - fleeing at least. He should aspire more to be like his namesake !!
Chateau Beau van Spinnepoes aka Beauregard
"Castle Beauty of Purpuss" is his pedigree name but I like his new name better (regard means both looking and esteem). He's gorgeous and he knows it. He also has the cutest high-pitched mew which sounds strange coming from such a big beast. And he's still growing.
Grumpy Man, The Mistress, Bouncing Psycho, The Strong Woman of Flanders, The Lord of Toys, The Cleaning Scourge, The Man in White, and the occasional hapless visitor.
