We have had some violent storms and loss of power this year, resulting in more rain than usual and the shade garden is thriving.
This is an old fashioned garden in front of the house that was there when we moved in. All I do is maintain it.
Plenty of nice specimen plants. Lily of the valley, creeping woodruff, an old fashioned hydrangea that blooms white and changes to pink, hosta, mayapple, peonies, iris and ostrich fern, bleeding hearts.
I spray painted these plant stands the other week. One red, one white.
The different shapes and textures of the leaves are beautiful.
This little poster is a favorite. We display it seasonally. The picture is vintage, and the cute sleepers remind me of...wait for it.....
....the surprise! Arrived night before last and he is totally at home. Runs all the time, rarely seems to sleep. I have a new appreciation for the term "cat nap". 4 1/2 pounds of fun.
So this is the something, new and exciting, to us. He is litter trained already and so sweet and cute.
Many of the pictures I took of him didn't come out. Because he ran away before the picture took.
Here he is in Mister's new recliner....
....with vintage fabric.
There is only one problem, as I see it, and that is this:
We still don't know his name!!
Do you know? And if so, please tell me!
