I went home recently to visit my family and check out their summer garden. Nothing was ready to pick yet, but it looks very professional. There are rows of tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant, and I can’t wait until things are full and ripe. It’s like a farm!
I also got a chance to catch up with the kitties, including Contortionist Greasey. David looked at this picture for five minutes, cocking his head, asking me a hundred times if he was looking at Greasey’s left or right ear, her left or right eye, where is her nose, where is her other ear, and on and on. Granted, it’s a crazy way to sleep.
Muffin was a lovely, cuddly princess. Mango was recently diagnosed with diabetes. My mom gives him shots of insulin while he eats, and he doesn’t even notice that it’s happening.
The pond looks great, but two of the new fish babies are missing. The bird must have come and eaten them.
But there are plenty of dragonflies.
And even a yellow ladybug. It was friskier than any red ladybug I’ve ever seen.
Cat tails. Any relation to a pussy willow?
My mom bought these flowers at Costco. Not bad!
These are from Costco too. As you can probably tell, I had a very exciting trip. Just the way I like it!
Wow, that black cat is stunning and adorable.
I guess by now someone has told you that the “yellow ladybug” is a cucumber beetle! You have to squish them or they will eat that beautiful garden all up!
Uh oh! No one has told me that, and there are some cucumbers growing in the farm! I can see the nibbles it took from the flower. Thanks for the warning 🙂
