Odds 'n' ends...

Well, I didn't get out into my garden today, so I thought I'd share with you some shots I've taken over the past couple of weeks, starting with a picture of my Sarracenia leucopylla 'Tarnock'. Aren't the markings amazing?

I took this one yesterday of my cute little kitty-kitties with their doggie and my Bat-faced Cuphea. You can see Kirstin's Cosmos in the background.

I don't remember which Heuchera this one is, but the Fall colors it has all year seem very appropriate right now.

Pink Gruss an Aachen grows near my front door. Thankfully it did better this year than last year and so I have high hopes for it for next year.

And my beloved Violas.

Is there anything so cheerful?

Or much more charming?

Have a beautiful day!

Your violas are charming! I love that shade of blue.

Pink Gruss an Aachen is lovely.

Are the two cats lying side by side littermates?

Hi, sweetbay, Those 2 cats aren't littermates. The grey and white cat - Luca - we brought with us from CA when we moved here. The orange cat - Tiger - and the white cat - Princess - we got after we moved here and they came from the same house, but I don't think they have the same mom, but they look a lot alike except for their color. Luca has "adopted" Princess and will chase Tiger off if he thinks Tiger is "wrestling" too much with Princess. It is very sweet. All 3 are very good friends! :)

K - aren't cats fun?

Thank you, Pam! :)
