When we got that one really cold night in late May, most things survived (the new mulberry sapling, sadly, did not) just fine. However, anything that was budding lost their flowers. Including almost all of the lilacs. This Korean lilac usually blooms after the common lilac, but with the warmth we'd had earlier in May, … Continue reading Growing things
Ginger is getting to be too big to climb around on the skinny little lilac branches! (update: when I scheduled this post, I never imagined that Ginger would soon be injured and having a front leg amputated! He is going to be an indoor cat, now. No more lilac tree climbing for him!)
While going through tripod photos of the feeding station, I found a bunch from the spring that never got shared. So, for the next while, while it's cold outside, I will be posting pictures from May and June! A monarch butterfly, enjoying some fragrant lilacs.

The morning rounds, as usual, started with a visit to the kitties. I fully expected to find a couple at the top of the stairs, as has been the usual thing lately. Nope. Just Beep Beep. The other usual thing is to go down the stairs and find the kittens not already on the stairs, … Continue reading Mourning roundup – and what a nasty boy!
So, I think this is a sign... For the first time since we cleaned and refilled this barometer, it has overflowed! As I write this, it's already 28C/82F and we've got weather alerts for heat and thunderstorms. Looking at the weather radar, it looks like we might actually get some rain. That would be nice! … Continue reading Feeling the heat, and fun stuff
We've got ourselves a lovely - and windy! - day today. It made doing the morning rounds quite pleasant. The routine started, of course, with babies. 🙂 One of the down sides of not being able to do stairs very well is, even with my daughter at the top of the stairs to help keep … Continue reading Morning rounds
Today started off very well, so I'll start with that, too! I'm happy to say that the new bed has made a huge difference. There must be something about no longer being so close to the floor, because I slept like a rock - for almost 11 hours! Which meant I got a late start … Continue reading Oh, what a day. Already
Here are some kitten antics to brighten your day! 🙂 The ferocious beast likes to climb into the lilac branches. 😀 The like playing with the sun spots, too. I let David come down with me, and he is very interested in his little doppelganger! The other kittens and Beep Beep were just too fast … Continue reading Morning smiles
It's barely evening, but I think I'm done for the day! 😀 We had plans to go into the city so the girls could get some shopping done that we never quite get to when we do our monthly stock up. With that in mind, I started my morning routine early, starting with visiting the … Continue reading Today’s Evening Roundup
