These delicate and perfectly circular mini pompoms have bloomed! Third year in a row , if I am not mistaken. Regina’s babies bloom all over our gardens and woods. I did not pay one penny for them, or the echinacea, or the tall grasses or the columbine etc etc etc. She gifted me big ziplock bags full of seeds to toss into the soil in the fall. I see and pray for Regina and Pat, her husband, whenever I water the plants. We met them due to Fireman’s love of cycling, and Regina and I just hit it off.
This is a volunteer plant. You know , where a seed finds it ‘s way to the right spot and grows for you. You don’t even have to plant it. I think it is an acorn squash. I hope it grows like crazy for my food pantry donations.
Okay, I”m thrilled she’s off the needles in one piece. This is the Cobweb Shawl by Emma Crew. I used the wool with opossum fur in it. For now, It is playing dead. I have to block her and put an edge on her. Ugh, oh that was backwards. And thank each and everyone of you for your vinegar bath suggestions to get those red striped mittens to stop bleeding!
Mama deer was here this morning! I am so glad that Fireman reported this. There is a huge dead dear carcass down the road. We hadn’t seen Mama in a few days….I assumed the worst. HA! Take that Kathy B! She’s fine and she’s still enjoying the woods and the clover I planted for her. I can’t wait to see the baby!
Okay, I have to show you BO. She’s gotten herself into a bit of trouble. Dona isn’t fond of cats . Dona is Zach’s landlord. Bo has been there two months and Dona hasn’t come knocking, other than to spare Zach from the rapture. Well, apparently when you make a spectacle of your self in the window, you are going to get discovered.
In a way I cannot explain, a 100% Zach way, Dona decided to let Bo stay. He did throw in her lamb of GOD markings on her face. I think that may have swayed Dona. Dona is deeply religious. Bo was angelic in Zach’s arms. Zach said they are deeply bonded and he would have to move if Bo was forced to go.
Dona knows a good deal when she has one. No one is visiting or moving in during Covid and Zach’s a good tenant who pays on time and doesnt make waves.
Okay Let’s play a quick game:
