What are They Up to?

Spike has a new (temporary--hopefully!) nickname: grease monkey.
All the kittehs got their monthly flea treatment Sunday night. When I woke up yesterday there was nothing unusual about Willow or Xander....a bit of residual product between their shoulder blades. Spike? He looked like the picture above--a great big black spot where his product had been. How does he do it?! Best we can figure is that he managed to find some grease under some of the exercise equipment.
This morning there were two on duty for homeland security:
Good to know the perimeter is secure!

Happy Birthday, Princess!

Hard to believe that Mom's "little one" is three!
 These were taken when she first came home....busy exploring...

 Trouble wasn't so sure he wanted a kitten..
 But eventually he warmed up to the idea...
Another refugee from the Osterberg-Romano Home for Little Wanderers that's found a happy spot in her furever home :D

Plant Matters

One of my iris' that bloomed a few weeks ago

The start of this year's garden...maybe I'll even keep you updated on its progress this year!

Our rosemary is doing nicely, don't you think?

It's been brought to my attention that some people couldn't see the picture that accompanied my last post. I wasn't sure it was going to work right as it was an Instagram picture and I used html code to paste it in...for those that couldn't see it this is another attempt which I believe corrects the issue...let me know!
In response to a comment: yes, her ears are covered. We both have fly masks made for riding that cover their ears and all the way to their noses....they were much needed as the flies were pretty bad and would have driven the horses crazy without these.

Hoping to get in a long trail ride with a big group next weekend so expect more pix.

Went on a trail ride Saturday. It was wonderful. Pretty soon it will be too hot and the bugs will get pretty bad, but it was just about perfect Saturday. It was just Solana and her stablemate, 'Mo. Rode through the woods and out onto the beach. Solana saw her first motor boat...and it freaked her out! :D Fortunately, she got over it and settled right back down. That's one of the things I love about my girl...she does LOVE being a trail horse!
