I recently replanted my pot garden near my front porch and imagine my delight when the new blooms started attracting butterflies - so pretty. It was hard to catch one on camera but I did manage it.
I am particularly happy with this hanging basket. It is not a new planting, but when we went away to Taiwan for a month, my lovely neighbour was feeding the cats and watering the pots but she forgot about this one. So, I came back to a dead-looking stick plant. However, I have been nursing it back to health (ie watering it) and now I am about to be rewarded with lots of lovely double blooms of pink and purple! (Why, I am so happy is that I do not have a green thumb but a black one - most of my plants take one look at me and keel over dead - lol!)
.... and of course, my kitty cats give me great pleasure and companionship. I love the way that they ALWAYS find the best places to curl up (or stretch out) for a nap!
Furio is so clever, it was a rather cool day, so he is not only sleeping near the central heating vent (hence the clothes airing) but has found a patch of sunshine as well!

Furio loves to find a basket to curl up in, preferable one that is raised up a bit.
... and not to forget Milo (he is much more skittish than Furio so it is harder to get a photo of him)
Stealing my sewing chair!
Milo with his cat cushion - he loves this cushion and sleeps on it in all sorts of strange poses.
Well, that is all for me today, dear friends, off to randomly choose my Friday Frolics/FNSI stitching piece.
