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.
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.
I would like to encourage readers to leave comments on any and all post you read and find intereting. I'm always happy to entertain ideas and views that are different from my own. I do ask, however, that if you leave a comment, please refrain from excessive and gratuitous uses of profanity or simple insults with no constructive value. Any comments not conforming to these guidelines will be deleted.
