Yesterday Demon Kitty came over to visit us. I’d been out watering the yard and I left the screen door open. When I came back inside, DK was basking in the sunlight cleaning himself.
The mystery plant bloomed, I think everyone was right, it does look like a lilly of sorts.
A few months back some small green shoots poked above the ground. I hadn’t planted anything in the corner where they were occurring, but I welcome most low maintenance plants that show up on their own. I have no idea what this plant is, there is a smaller one next to it (lower right corner). Does any … More mystery plant
When I first brought the transplanted blackberries home they looked pretty awful and Gavin fervently hoped they would die. They sat by the back fence, looking increasingly pitiful and dead. When they reached an awful low – crispy, brown shriveled leaves – with clearly no chance of survival, I moved them off to the side – out … More not dead yet, hahahaha!
We’ve got a new sofa, well, not exactly new, but new to us. It folds out into a double sofa bed, and is quite cushy. We’re debating slip-covering it, it is a bit beige-on-beige-on-beige.
The pansies died, but that’s OK, they were supposed to die after a few months, so I decided to replace them with some “drought resistant” plants that I bought on a whim on a trip to Target. I also bought a new basil, because my old basil died, it wasn’t supposed to do that, but … More “Drought resistant” plants & another Basil
We have a new back fence, Gavin insists it is redwood, I think red is being generous, the fence is bright a bright pink-salmon color. It makes quite a stark contrast with the deck and the fences dividing up the individual backyards. Gavin insists it will fade with time, until then, we’ve got a pink fence.
