Is it love, affection, obsession
Is it warmth, adores or possession
Honeybun has been a great mom so far. She always gives in to her litter's demand for milk and never abandoned them. Once in a while, she 'requested' for a playtime in the garden. Ooooohhh.....she's still so young and seems like a little girl, playing with the leaves and chasing after the bees. And now, she's a Mom!

I heard a loud meowing, not from Oreo, Minty, or even Honeybun. They're little kittens. I looked around and it comes from Honeybun's 'apartment'!
She gave birth to 3 little kittens, 2 Calicos and 1 Diluted Calico. The father is Minty!
Back to my 'masterpiece', this is actually a maiden effort to enhance my garden further. After moving to this house for more than a year now, I feel that this place needs some improvement and more artistic layout. Its time to redecorate and implement new ideas and concept to an already not-so-bad garden....haha!
The other day I invited a landscape designer to plan my garden. She was full of ideas. Among other things she mentioned was this concept, "...don't plant just one plant in a pot, put 3-5 plants together!" So, guess what, at the earliest opportunity we made our way to Sg Buloh and choose some plants as well as some other indoor plants.
Well, I think its a brilliant and refreshing idea and the outcome is beautiful. And if you haven't tried it already, you might want to adopt this concept for your garden! :)
Honey Bun arrived at our home the day before Minty found his way back! Yes, that was the 'orange little thing' that he discovered when he got home!
It was still early in the morning when I went downstairs to see this very strangely familiar cat entering my front door. The cat was meowing loudly and he looked like Minty, but of course I wasn't 'expecting' him. I thought it was a different cat until he looked right at me and ran towards me! OMG, it was Minty! I just couldn't believe my eyes. He was rubbing himself against me but suddenly all his hairs stood up! When he saw Honey Bun!!!
The End! :)
2 pounds fresh strawberries, hulled
4 cups white sugar
1/4 cup lemon juice
In a wide bowl, crush strawberries in batches until you have 4 cups of mashed berry. In a heavy bottomed saucepan, mix together the strawberries, sugar, and lemon juice. Stir over low heat until the sugar is dissolved. Increase heat to high, and bring the mixture to a full rolling boil. Boil, stirring often, until the mixture reaches 220 degrees F (105 degrees C). Transfer to hot sterile jars, leaving 1/4 to 1/2 inch headspace, and seal. Process any unsealed jars in a water bath. If the jam is going to be eaten right away, don't bother with processing, and just refrigerate.
To test for jelling
Place three plates in a freezer... after about 10 minutes of boiling place a tsp of the liquid of the jam onto the cold plate. Return to freezer for a minute. Run your finger through the jam on the plate... if it doesn't try to run back together (if you can make a line through it with your finger) it's ready to be canned!
