A short stroll around my property

Okay so George got his cuddle and I toddled up to the sewing room to sew on a bit of binding. But when I opened my shade and saw this view I knew I needed to grab my camera and share this with the rest of you.

Tnis is the view I saw from my sewing room window. Unfortunately it will be gone soon as I have to run the tractor through it this weekend. You can see where I already ran a few rounds through last weekend. But it's almost head high in spots so if I wait any longer I won't be able to get through it even with the tractor.

Just some pretty wildflowers I passed in my walk. :-)

More of those beautiful flowers. A scene just like this inspired a project I started on retreat last year. The same one I bought the green/yellow spirograph fabric a few weeks ago for the backing. I really do need to find the tote that has that project and finish it as I just love this green/yellow combination.

The Fluffy Boy who accompanied me on my stroll. :-)

Mama Kitty who came to meet us as we headed back home.

And to complete our photojourney - a little kitty peaking up at me from between the boards on the ramp. Curious about the goings on while safe in it's little hidey-hole.

That is a nice scenic property you live on. Beautiful views, beautiful flowers. It looks so serene.

Oh, how I miss wildflowers! Your property is gorgeous!

Wasn't it YOU that said that you wanted to be more observant about things around you? Camera in hand, I think you are doing a great job! Pretty!!!



Patti said...

Thanks for the tour. I hope you don't have to mow down all those pretty wildflowers. The kitties are all so precious!

Susan said...

Thanks for sharing the pics. I love wildflowers; the more, the merrier.

Jeanne said...

Thanks for the lovely tour. The kitties are all cutie pies!

Oh, how I wish for my personal space - a few acres or so.

Nothing is more fun than kittens -- well puppies too!

thanks for the outdoorsy photos - love those wildflowers.

Thanks for the pics! They are great. Love the kitty story below too. Do you have a cat rescue organization around that will trap the cats have them spayed or neutered and then release them back to your property? That helps keep the population down a bit and prevents overcrowding.

Great job on the no buy!

Nice back yard! Mama kitty looks like our Maggie. She was a stray that sleeped with Bear in her dog house. Unfortunetaly, we lost Bear last Nov. She was such a good dog. Kittens are so cute! Love those big eyes.

My reply failed twice...

I can add... (I forgot to mention that) it just has to be
predominently freshcut & needs to use some of each print.

I have that Atkinson pattern, too. (I am going to frame kitties one of
these days....)
