Early Morning With The Kitties

I have a stray kitty (the black & white one) that comes early
 in the morning wanting food.  I have been feeding her 
(I think it is a she, but not sure). The tabby is our American Bobtail. 
He eats before going out and then  just watches her eat.
 I also fill up the bird feeder. (also the squirrel gets his fill from this) 
I saw a couple of rabbits out in the field beyond our property watching me.

Clematis

  Hubby and I moved this rock from where the Pampas grass 
was, to this spot by our front lamp post.  I just transplanted two
 clematis that I brought from my old house to this spot. 
One is white and the other is pink. See photo below.  
This is what the transplanted pink one will look like. I don't have a photo of my white one.



I planted two Compact Holly Ilex crenata 'Compacta' by
 the rocks that had the pampas grass growing. Later
 I plan to add a variety of perennials to this spot also.

I THINK SPRING MIGHT BE AROUND THE CORNER!

We are having another "snow day" today. Roads are icy and snowy. It was a warmer day yesterday, so I got out and visited my local nursery and bought a few things to be planted later in the week. It is suppose to reach 50-60's by Saturday. I bought a Quince,  two Forsythia, more Elaeagnus, three "White By The Gate" Japonica Camellia, and two "Kanjiro Camellia" Lots of work to do. My fence/gate estimate came in too high, so I now have to start thinking of an alternative.
