Of Sunshine and Surprises!

After a lovely walk in the sun, I arrived home to find the most amazing gift on my front porch. Stunningly beautiful and luscious too, this surprise is one I want to share with everyone!

Okay, I know it is a cliche', however there is truth here. A picture is worth a thousand words. Just look at this edible bouquet.

My thoughtful and classy freinds, Lauren & Rion, sent this amazing treat. Many thanks, I feel better already!

Scarface Claw: The Cat Living at the Garden

Yesterday, I tended my garden. I weeded out quick grass, calendulas and other unwanted plants taking root in my p-patch. I also planted four tomato plants, two zucchini plants and six cucumber plants. My raspberries are thriving, with berries galore.

The highlight of my time at the garden happened when Scarface Claw sidled up to me. I tried to get a picture of this guy but he made it difficult. Everytime, I aimed my camera at Scarface, he moved quickly to rub up against my leg making it nearly impossible to get a good shot of him.

Persistence paid off.
