In the gardens where I volunteer there are many different areas of lushness. Sometimes I work in the rose garden, other times by the wall of ferns. This picture was taken in the wild section, next to the compost heap where Pixie followed me to. It was amazing to see her energy change - she became a little more wild, leaping about, leaping up high, chatting, getting frisky. She could sense imaginary mice everywhere. She was enlivened. Her true feline nature was activated.
