This morning’s garden…

I got an early start today, which was great, and went out to work in the garden for a couple of hours. Here are the red mums that are so big now, at least three times as big as they were when they were flowering in a pot last fall and more button sized… We…

It’s sunny and warm…

Wow, some days it’s hard to think of a title. So, there you go. It’s sunny and warm today. I might get in the pool. Twobie and Archie had a bit of fun inside this morning, just moments before I booted them outdoors. It’s amazingly hard to capture a good photo of a kitten with…

Hmmmmm….

It’s a cloudy cool day. I like these days. It’s easier to get things in the ground and work outside without the heat bearing down on me. So far I got the last 3 tomato spaces filled in the back, plus coverings. It’s not very attractive, but it certainly is pragmatic. The netting on top…

Sometimes…

Sometimes you just have to jump for joy… It’s so funny when they do this. Yoyo really cracked me up this morning. He is so comical when he tries to fly. They all jump in the water, then they get so excited they have to jump out and FLY. You can tell they do it…

Little things…

Olive’s kitties… Twobie’s eyes look familiar…like Chicky’s. H may be right. Archie is funny…and kindof a whiner. This is the first time I had the door open in a week. Noodle ran in to say hello to her “other” kitties. And then she tried to poop in their tiny litter box… She AND Olive are…

Not in full bloom…

The duckies have a new pool… They are in it almost constantly. Of course they scarpered when I came out to photograph them! The blue pool was getting a bit ridiculous as they had outgrown it and were swimming in circles, like one of those carnival games at the fair. Thank you H! He got…

A rainy May day…

I was away from home 8 days and in that time the ducks turned more white… It was very surprising. H said he went to check on them one day and overnight it seemed they had turned whiter. He was worried they were sick or something…on his watch…haha. (Check out those beans! ) It’s been…

Thread beans and Olive’s dilemma…

Re-entry into my regular life yesterday was challenging. There was a lot to catch up on. The situation with the cats has been resolved. It seems Noodle was taking her job as mommy a bit too seriously by deciding it was her job to take care of hers as well as Olive’s babies. Olive, sweet…

Sun, not rain…

I woke up to sunny skies this morning instead of rain! That’s ok, I’ll take it. I am still planting! I’m enjoying these sunflowers (?) in the back yard. When you put off mowing you get to see lots of wildflowers. I have had more butterflies in the back yard this year than I can…

The weather is…

The next four days are supposed to be… A couple days ago it was super… When it’s done being cold and rainy, I bet it will be… In fact, the past two months have been… Ugh. Of course, I won’t be here for a week of it, as I head out Friday. I’m actually looking…

The wind blew my head off…

That’s how it’s felt lately. Too windy for my taste. This is the first day I have been able to be inside for any amount of time without the ducks (i.e. Turtle) going berserk. Perhaps the wind has calmed them, as well. Yesterday was more like this… Not just beneath my chair, but ON my…

Cool and rainy…

It’s cool and rainy today, but I’m headed back outdoors. The duckies are still adjusting to life outside and Turtle throws a giant quacking fit if I disappear…still working on that. I have been spending hours and hours outside. This weekend I began dreaming of a gazebo… a place where I could sit out of…
