There are several clumps of hyacinth, and doing well. Two of the happiest bunches are these –one by the front fence and one in this bed where I have a new stone (boulder).
The cats are loving the green grass –and rolling around in it.
The inside kitties are enjoying their own snoozing. Especially Claribel, below, with her bed head.
And here is a picture of some hyacinth, just so we don’t forget that spring is here.
The kitties have all been enjoying the weather; we have suddenly sprinted into spring. I still wonder about the possibilities for sudden fall back into chilly weather.
This is a picture of Cousin from last summer; I’ve put it in here to maintain his dignity. The next picture of him is very funny but not very dignified. I had been petting him and with the static and all, his hairs are all slicked back in a very odd way.
Well. Yes. And he is sticking out his tongue and he is actually getting ready to bat at me with that upraised paw. And clearly he has been putting his nose in places it wasn’t wanted. There are two little scoundrals in the background too.
I tore out the leftover detritus of the Cup-And-Saucer (vine?/ flower?) plant (Cobaea Scandens). AND I was very pleased to find a complete seed pod that rattles like it is full of seeds. I am especially happy about this find because somehow I didn’t save any seeds (or at least not that I’ve found), and I don’t seem to have the packet or the leftover from last year. Here is the flower on the plant from last summer.
Tiglet in the sun.
Kitties in the sun inside….. Cousin enjoying his spot.
And little tiny Clairbel in a new sun spot.
It was very cold here in South Dakota and has now warmed up.
Vlad usually looks something like this on the right.
Here are a series of images of Vlad with an epic case of kitty bed head. First the nap posture that contributed.
When he first awakened he gave me a more befuddled look than usual.
Then he decided he better straighten himself out a bit.
Notice he hasn’t quite had a chance to put his tongue away.
