blossom on the branches

Harlequin had her first tree this weekend. I was up on the stepladder trying to angle the anvil loppers through my rear neighbour's encroaching laurel when she decided that stepping up from the fence into his bolted hedge and seeing how far she could wriggle into the lelandii might be fun. Fortunately she bottled while still in reach of one the classic cat rescues, and I was able to rescue her through standing on top of the step ladder bent over so she could jump onto my back. Whether is was the FEAR! or the exposure to other cats (she also came face to face with Graham Norton next door, who hissed her off, and new cat Jimmy Carr who stuck around until Teasel and Harley joined forces in a double stare of doom) she decided to spend the evening curled up on the bed with Teasel, a first for them. Tim walked in on them while they were grooming each other's faces on top of a pile a clean washing.

In othe news, OMG Nectarine! has made it through the winter and has just burst into blossom. I hope it can find a bee; it's a bit early!

Next of the tenovertwelvers, is bloodlossgirl's A Sofa in February, chilly songs in warm beats like a sofa floating in snowball space, a cosy fastness in the depths of midwinter. Standouts for me were Cake's supremely earwormy and faintly disturbing Italian Leather Sofa, and New Zero by Rasputina (I've been off buying Rasputina since...)

We saw Rasputina supporting Robyn Hitchcock, I think it was, at the South Bank. Instant converts - well, I only have one album but I like it a lot.

they're all over emusic, but the line-up varies so much they can't avoid being a bit patchy

This is a really fun project! I'm so glad to be a part of it. Glad to introduce you to Rasputina, too! It's not always consistent, but all the albums have gems, and I still think their first two albums, "Thanks for the Ether" and "How We Quit the Forest" are the strongest.
