Happy 13 Daisy!

Daisy Maisy Dixie Grace turned 13 today. She had a lovely day, full of treats, walkies and a turn at the front window where she waited for debbil cat to show up so she could bark at him.

(sigh) Complete with sticky green things in her hair. Funny girl.

Happy Birthday, Little.

Crinum Alert

I always post the first lily of the season, but the pictures are usually… well, better than this. I couldn’t be bothered to get my camera out this time…

I used to have a big bed in the back stuffed with these things (and a plumeria) but I dug everything up a few years ago and now they’re all over, in dribs and drabs… one or two in one place. They make a better display all together, though.

Remember


I took this early one morning on the beach… many years ago. It’s been living on my desktop, prodding me to remember things I’d forget as the days go by..

Such as… we are not alone -we are never alone. We have family, friends, all the saints in heaven, guardian angels, not to mention the Holy Trinity and our heavenly Mother, Mary.

And it always reminds me that 99% of the time, we have no control… over anything. Drink that in and ponder on how short life can be.. I don’t know about you, but I’m enjoying my time on this rock, grateful for what’s been given and what’s been earned… and even taken away.

Hope you are, too.

We’re praying for those afflicted with COVID and the souls of the departed. Our emergency services, medical staff, military and grocery stores that keep us fed.

God bless us, everyone.

Isolating

I’ve been pressure cleaning in the back…. well, along with getting stuck into Joanie’s List of Alternative viewing! Currently watching the Great Pottery Throwdown and love it! Never dabbled myself, but the people are so creative!

Anyhoo… here’s Badgy with her newly shaved rear end. Yes, I’m laughing. No, I haven’t completed the pressure cleaning. 😉

Maisy Grace, light shining on her, hunting. Just thought it was cool. And she’s been shaved as well. Hey, it’s hot here already… which is actually not the reason Badger’s pants were taken down. Heh.

Saw this on the net this morning and since it’s one of the few positive things I’ve seen in awhile, thought to share.

Praying you and yours are well.

Tiny Tour

Are you bored? Surprisingly enough, me too.

What is this strange liquid emanating from the Bird of Paradise ‘boat’? Oh, Joanie! I was supposed to look for different colors! Totally forgot!

My baby. I raised him from a seed. (And yes, I need to redo the beds. Currently pressure cleaning in the back, so it will have to wait a bit.)

Had no idea arecas could grow so dang high!

Welcome to the Cracker Box!

Another group of plants I never thought would go so far!

I already have a list, but seeing these pictures… let’s just say I’ve added several items.
