ELIJAH CAT NESTLES IN A BED OF FALLEN LEAVES

ELIJAH CAT NESTLES IN A BED OF FALLEN LEAVES

My cats, Elijah and Punkin, love to nestle in this bed of leaves.  I never throw my leaves away.  
I rake them into flower beds or close to my front porch for the cats.  
Can you see there are four nests in this picture?  Elijah is sleeping in one.
Oh, about the rubber snake...I leave it there to scare the doves away from the cat food.

A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN JAGUAR & LEOPARD COATS

A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN JAGUAR & LEOPARD COATS

I read that leopard and jaguars are very similar.
They both have coats with a rosette pattern.
Except...the jaguar has spots in the middle of their rosettes.
And,
A leopard does not have the spots inside the rosettes on their coat.

PAINTING AT THE ZOO ~ A DREAM JOB FOR ME

PAINTING AT THE ZOO ~ A DREAM JOB FOR ME

Recently, I gave a paint bid for some work at our zoo.  
This week I found out our team's bid was accepted. 
 They are building a new exhibit and I get to be the painter.
It's next to this exhibit.  The giraffes and zebras will be watching us.
A dream job for me.  It will be hard work, but I'm so excited!
Giraffe and zebra exhibit.  They were just fed their breakfast.  Zebras up on the hill.

TINY LESSER GOLDFINCH SITTING ON A TRELLIS

TINY LESSER GOLDFINCH SITTING ON A TRELLIS

THIS IS ONE REASON WHY I HAVE TRELLISES ALL OVER MY YARD. SEE THE TINY LESSER GOLDFINCH ON THE WHITE TRELLIS. IF HE WAS UP IN A TREE I WOULDN'T GET TO SEE HIM. (THE OTHER REASON IS, I LOVE VINES!)

TIME TO FERTILIZE OUR LANDSCAPES ~ PLEASE USE ORGANICS

TIME TO FERTILIZE OUR LANDSCAPES ~ PLEASE USE ORGANICS

It's time to fertilize and I'm hoping we will all think "organic". Medina granular "Growing Green" is my favorite. You can find it at a good nursery, Lowe's & other convenient places. I throw it on everything and extra around trees and shrubbery. About once a month, I throw it on all the blooming plants. I use gloves because it does have a bit of an odor, but that odor will go away after a couple of waterings. PLEASE DON'T USE WEED & FEED PRODUCTS!! They will also kill trees and shrubbery. And, please consider your neighbors. Anything you use on your yard will probably spread to your neighbors, their landscapes and pets. Your lawn mower is your best weed preventer and I have found that to be true. Mowing keeps your weeds from going to seed. BE ORGANIC AND HELP PROTECT OUR EARTH!!!

PAINT YOUR FURNITURE~ PAINT YOUR CHAIR LEGS

PAINT YOUR FURNITURE ~ PAINT YOUR CHAIR LEGS

Target is advertising this chair on sale.  I would paint the legs one of the darkest greens and rub 
(color wash) a creamy white on top of the green. 
 I love green.  I love this chair.
  And, it has hummingbirds.

AMAZING SUNRISE & NEON MOON

AMAZING SUNRISE & NEON MOON

At 7 a.m., I was feeding the outside cats on the front porch and saw the most beautiful, brilliant sunrise in the eastern sky.  But wait!  I was just at my back door which looks to the west.  The sky was a little darker and there was a huge, full neon moon shining back at me.  I walked to the front door and to the back door a couple of times and was amazed. 
Both were truly beautiful!
