Beautiful Iris

I have just a few Iris in my garden.  Last April the Iris flowered, then it rained.  I was able to capture the incredible color of this wonderful purple flower.  

Oddly enough, here in my little valley, it hasn't rained since April, except for over a month ago, when it rained few big drops over 15 minutes.  The ground is so dry it is hard, like a rock.  I'm glad to be able to water my garden every so often.

In the meantime, I am praying for rain.  They say it may rain this weekend!

Have a lovely day, dear Friends.

Meet Mr. Snowboots!

This little fellow has been living here for a little over a month.  He has brought happiness and laughter into my home--not just for me, but for Toez the Polydactyl Cat.  She thinks he is the best cat toy ever. 

At first I thought Toez would never forgive me for bringing Snowboots into the house.  But now they are good buddies and it is the best thing I could have done for both Toez and for me. 

They play together, give one another baths, and even eat together!  And how they make me laugh.

This morning I awoke with one kitty behind my knees and another against my cheek.  My dear husband would have gotten such a kick out of Mr. Snowboots!  lol  I call him Booters for short.

A friend of mine suggested I get a third cat so I could have Toez, Boots and SOCKS living here! 

Have a beautiful day, sweet Friends.
