Tiger in the Gazebo

My cat seems to be really enjoying the new addition to our yard.  I think this is his way of saying, "Thanks for buying me a new bed."  And, unfortunately, he also thinks it is his new scratching post.  Because, as every cat caregiver knows, every new purchase made is always for the cat.

Something New

We took out our above ground pool and replaced it with a gazebo, or more accurately a "teahouse".  It has a double swing inside.  We haven't finished the landscaping, obviously, but I think it is coming along nicely.  The plan is to plant spirea and butterfly bushes, along with some lantana and some annuals which are yet to be determined.  I've wanted a gazebo for a long time, and I'm so happy to finally have one.
