Just Generally Besotted
There's just no hope for it. I can't stop looking at these daylilies.
To me, they are the quintessential summer flower. I see them along the roadside, in drifts along the fields, and in my own yard.
In real life, the geraniums are so red, it seems that they would stain your hands if you touched them.
The dahlias have so many petals per bloom that it's unreal.
The butterfly bush has taken off again this year, as usual.
And there are hundreds of volunteer cleome or spiderflower everywhere!
I just completed a successful project that has brought me great delight.
I met this feral half grown cat on Labor Day weekend. So frightened. He'd never interacted with humans before.
After a few weeks of feeding, I persuaded him to move across the street, to our back porch. He was delighted to be a Porch Cat.
We have 4 cats and 5 would be too much. So, after we became fast friends, I took him to work, neutered, vaccinated, and dewormed him, and made sure he was negative for feline leukemia.
Right now, I call him Jasper. But we will find him the perfect home. He is happy, content, relaxed and boarding at work until then.
And my little Jackson?? He is delighted to resume his rightful place as Household Kitten.
Wishing each of you a wonderful week. Are you besotted? And for what? Joining Jean for Bloomin' Tuesday, and Susan for Outdoor Wednesday!
