Because the garden is so beautiful right now, I set out with apple cider in thermos and camera in hand to take some pictures. You see, Mr. Enchanted has built me something I have always dreamed of. A little veggie patch surrounded by a fence and entered through an arbor.
Sigh. Picture it covered in clematis and morning glory.
After a visit to my favorite plant nursery,
I planted the front of the new garden with an abundance of marigolds.
After a while it became clear to me that I was going to get help with my photography.
Every time I bent down to take a picture, I got a cat face that wanted to give a kiss.
Ya Ya loves to give kisses.
I thought maybe I could give him the slip in the veggie garden.
He was rather determined to get in every shot.
And he somehow managed to.
Over and over.
My little white prince is
AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL (CAT EDITION).
Since I had enough cat head shots, I decided to do a little yoga outside. Where I live in Pennsylvania, it seems like we go from cold and damp to hot and humid very quickly. There really aren't all that many days when it is perfectly lovely, and yoga outside is a real treat on a beautiful day.
After I finished and rolled up my mat, something caught my eye. There is an area in our yard where we bury our pets. It is a special place where we plant flowers and have little markers by their graves. I had recently found a dog statue that looked just like my little spaniel Nellie, and I thought it would be nice to place it in the raised flower bed above the graves. So what I saw when I looked up, was Nellie lying in the raised bed in the center of the pet cemetery next to the statue that looks like her.
If Nellie sees me looking at her, she typically comes running. Not this time, though, she stayed by the statue.
We also have a kitty statue, so guess what happened next?
I couldn't believe it! If I tried all day, I would never be able to coax these two into posing by the statues.
It was such a special moment - a sweet gift.
Some slightly squashed hostas and begonias, but worth it.
Does anyone else garden with their fur babies?
