This summer there is six stems and a lot of buds. I like it so much and each day I go out to enjoy it several times a day. And of course, to take way too many pictures.
Congrats my beautiful Dahlia in a pot 10 years !
Or that’s what I think it is. I looked up for pictures to match my caterpillar and the lettuce shark one is closest to look like mine. If I’m right about that it is a lettuce shark then this colorful, beautiful thing is going to turn into a quite big, gray moth
I love caterpillars and wish I could see more of them unfortunately it doesn’t happen that often. Third time I have been able to spot this one. In 2005, 2015 and now
This pictures is not a good one. I didn’t realize until at back home it was so blurry. I went back next morning hoping he’d still be there and I’d get a better shot but nope he was gone.
We are going to have a kitty ! After Quam and Quismo left us for the cat heaven I was grieving and sad for a long time. Now I feel time is right for a new family member. Please meet Jacky. In the grass only about 3-4 weeks in the basket 6-7 weeks old. So cute and adorable. In the end of August he will be about 12 weeks and ready to move to us. I’m so excited.
Canelo needed a summer coat. We took him to a professional groomer today. Expensive but so much faster than me clipping with scissors which usually take days and is so bad for my back. It is the fifth time he was at a groomer. This time at Musti and Mirri Dogroom. We are pleased with the trimming and will go there again.
The beautiful, huge white one we got from our goddaughter and her children when they were here last Friday. Yesterday our Hämeenlinna friends were here and they brought the exotic, pollen free orange lily. Thank you all so much !
Yesterday we were at a summer party arranged by a cousin of mine. Garden party would have been lovely but as soon as everyone arrived it started to rain. We were about 20 persons. I met people I had not seen in a long time and also some I had not seen before at all. A classmate of mine recognized me but whom I couldn’t remember. Total black out. Embarrassing ! Then, on the way back home I suddenly remembered. Typical !
Such a nice afternoon. Loved it. Thank you for having us.
