June 2022 more new blooms

The garden is in that late June state when things change every day.

This calendula self seeded from last year, and I am very glad to see it.

The strawberries are very tasty despite being small.

The feverfew is in full bloom. It is such a delicate looking bloom on such a hardy plant.

I love bachelor’s buttons, perhaps because my paternal grandmother always grew them in her garden.

June 2022 kitties and mischief

Claribel has been getting up to quite a bit of mischief. Her cuteness is her best defense.

If you look carefully in the photo below, you will see that there is a box of cat treats on the shelf. That is what she is seeking in this moment, because if she knocks it off the shelf it will probably open for her to have access to the kitty treats.

April 2022 visit to florida

I had a lovely visit in Florida and I got to go horseback riding. So here is a good view from the back of a horse. This idyllic park like area at my dad’s place includes a couple of swings hung from the trees –you can see them off to the right.

Here a lovely sunset with the mares in their pasture with cypress trees.

Feb 2022 Changes in weather

Last sunday it was warm and the river was really gorgeous.

While it was warm, the kitties in the house had some time on the porch.

Now the temperature has swung unbelievably, it has snowed here, and all the kitties are snuggling in while it finally looks like winter here. To give you a sense of the massive change in temperature: on Sunday it was 60F (15C) and this morning it is -8F (-22C).
