Home Depot Flower Shopping

Last night it was raining, but that did not stop Jason and me from going to Home Depot to search for some things we needed.  Of course we ended up in the lawn and garden section.  It was raining out, so we could not get to most of the plants without getting soaked.  I know the plants were loving the rain!  We did get photos of a few plants that we might be able to put into our gardens.  We have a lot of deer who like to visit and eat the plants, so we are slowly composing a list of plants that the deer won’t eat!  That said, I have read and heard that deer will eat anything if they get hungry enough.  So far we have had success with:

  • butterfly bush
  • lavender
  • rosemary
  • iris
  • azalea
  • lamb’s ear
  • dianthus

In the background of all of our daily activities, the kitties make everything more cheery.  Amelia snuggles up to me when I am resting on the couch in the evenings.  Vlad stretches confidently while I am working.

I found an amazing iron bed frame that is going to make a great flower BED. Not sure where it will end up, but for now it is heading up some plants that were sweetly given to me by Henny Penny. And a potted yew that had been at the shop for a year needed to come home and get repotted. It was nearly completely root bound.

Tuxedo Cat Vladimir Loves Bubbles

Okay.  I know cats don’t belong on kitchen counters.  It is not a kitty place.  However, anyone who has cats and knows cats, well, um, cats go where they want to.  It is why we regularly brush our kitties and why we keep Clorox Clean-Up in the kitchen to keep counters disinfected.  Of course, our kitties are routinely shooed away from the counters; however, when the bubbles come out of the Dawn dishwashing container, it’s game on.

How can you not love a big, curious, sweet, bubble-loving tuxedo cat named Vladimir?

Make more bubbles!
Where are the bubbles?

Enjoy this day

Rug Made From Scraps

This is nothing fancy.  In fact, it is made simply from sewing thick fabric scraps together, with random piecing and random stitches.  The goal was for the rug to be as close to square as possible.  It has been a great bedside rug in the apartment.  It adds color and it will go into the washing machine.  The edge was turned under once or twice and hemmed.  I am pretty haphazard.  Enjoy this day!

Spread something out. No matter what. Cats will get in the middle of it. Lucy.
