Cat Hypnosis

Rionach is a very good Mom. 
Brighid was likely already 12 weeks when I adopted them.
And Brighid is kinna annoying, too. So you have to admire that.

She likes looking deep, deep into your eyes.
And chatting. Really chatty.

Brighid's "I just don't care what you think" face. 
Her other favorite is her "I will keel you" face. 
Technically I think she needs three standards, but she just likes those two.

Hot Flowers

My beloved Queen Anne's Lace! You can never have too much. Ever.

Yarrow in dramatic light.

Yarrow in mild somewhat shady light.

Opening sunflower. I love this soft yellow color, it is like early morning.

Brilliant Coreopsis with gutter. Plus a young thistle and zinnia and maybe oregano.

Fleabane. Loves the hard to thrive spots. 
Loves shade. Easy to please apparently.

Always in time for the Fourth of July, even this late year.
And still many days left of ripening fruit. It is a good year for it.

So much work in the heat

If I wait real, real patiently.... jis a leetle longer.............

Honey bee! Honey bee bee bee!

Everyone, simply everyone dahling, loves the Hollyhocks.

 Crazy night crawler. This guy was in the hall. 
Found one in the bathroom that had another set of spots on his back-
I wondered if it was a keeping-up-with-the-Jones thing. He didn't say.

Pretty large rat snake. Can't quite see his head. This one was in the back goat pen.
