Signs of a Sultry Summer Solstice


Miss Oreo resting


Miss Gigi with her toys

Bellflowers

Purple pretties (don't know the real name); the bees LOVE it

Pincushion plant flowers


Another shawl in progress

My "neon beast" shawl; Dr. Spo, cover your eyes!
Reminds me of summer and cotton candy colors.

The thermometer on the sunporch; a salute to Dr. Spo's relative!

  4. I'm suddenly sorely tempted to crack open a bottle of red. Yes, I shall do so and raise a glass to your own most happy anniversary day (as well as to my own memories mentioned elsewhere). So here's cheers to yourself, Oreo, Gigi - and the absent snoozing Nyla, not to mention RTG. So, "Bottoms Up" to all of you!

    1. go ahead; we will be cracking a bottle of red tonight also - I am making chicken parm, and tossed salad (not THAT kind), and a chocolate cake for dinner (the cake is just about ready to be removed from the oven).

      "bottoms up" - heh heh heh! ;-)

  7. Your cats look as if they have a great life! Food, comfort and zero work. Is the first shawl a merkin?

    1. all 7 of my cats (4 now deceased) have a great life; all of them are rescue kitties. the only work they do is to love us, and that is priceless.

      the first shawl is knit from the bottom-up (heh heh heh); I just started it 7 days ago, so it it quite small. it will keep getting wider and wider as I knit on. currently looks like a baby diaper; if it WERE a merkin (I confess I had to google that word), it would have to be MUCH bigger to cover me lady bits!

      the second shawl is being knit from side to side. I started that one 1 month ago.

  10. Summer? Already?? My ass is still hurting from falling on all that nasty winter ice.
    I love your kitties. Miss Oreo is regal. Also love those colors in the summer shawl.

    I haven't seen bellflowers since I was a kid.

    1. awwwww, I wish I could make your ass feel alllll better. :(

      oreo has a regal meow as well, deeper than nyla's (nyla was unavailable for a photo op). gigi has a squeak meow, more like a yip.

      I am getting into the blue section of the summer shawl now; it will end with another green section, like its beginning.

      the previous homeowner planted the bellflowers; they pop up every year. 15 years spouse and I have lived here, and everything she planted survives.

  11. I totally, totally love bell flowers. I used to grow them out at the top garden until The Cheaper Half 'needed' the space for his green beans. Git.

    Love to the kitties....♥
