One of my newest paintings on ebay "Apple Cats". It reminds me of a picture from an old children's book.
There are five black cats in the orchard.
See if you can find them.
So much to be done outside. I started raking this garden. Believe it or not, this will be full of flowers soon. This is one of my perennial gardens. I started another one yesterday. Splitting my mature perennials to make more. It is a cheap way to cover a lot of ground. I have been here for about 6 years so I have many plants to work from now. I split every year. When you live on a rocky ridge without a sprinkler system you find plants that grow naturally to this habitat. Lots of sedum, rebekia, and cone flowers . Hee hee :)
Rose loves to play with the worms when I garden. She was even pushing one on her swing yesterday. Poor worm.

Love the painting. I really like how your house is situated. Looks secluded!

Love the kitties outside. Do they ever wander in the woods? I 'd be afraid they would.
