A new garden and truly TGIF...

What a week, what a week...all I can say is whew! A final instrument breakdown discovered Thursday afternoon determined the course that was to be taken- no more do I do this first or that...I knew what I had to do. I suppose some disasters come to aid us!

So I share with you a garden update. The plants are now clustered in a new yet only temporary pattern. The rustic cart is gone because it was not doing anything for the catboys. They said, "Get rid of it, mommie!", and so I did.
Here's my lovely Aloe...
and the jade plant,
the ever-refusing to bloom amaryllis (despite our blossom dance), an agave cactus (?) in the back, a christmas cactus to the left, and some other succulent (left front).
The Lazy HouseWife green bean seeds that I received from dear Michaela grew too big and so I trimmed them,
and the two sage seeds that she sent me are now standing slender and straight in this pot.
After gardening we all went to the courtyard and I told the kitty boys many tales of woe and intrigue

which had Augustus perhaps puzzled

but Ollie was not listening and was only watching Augustus very carefully!

A distraction, perhaps a human, bird, squirrel or dog stole my audience!
Well, there it is time to enjoy the weekend, no matter what or how! Hope yours is a splendid one!

We listened to our favorite Eric Harper....
Pawfuls of kisses blown in the air just for you!
