The tulips suddenly opened today-the third day of pretty good sunshine.
My big bowl of sempervivums which survives from year to year with little interference. The bowl is copper-bought from TK Maxx years ago and with a few holes punched in the bottom has made a good container.
The old doll of the title is Edna, who returned home a couple of weeks ago. I find it weird that my doll has flown all the way to America, had a fun time at a photo shoot, and then flown all the way back to England and eventually made it back here! I feel a bit jealous. Of a doll. Is that normal?
Here is Cassie, posing in an unbelievably cute way. She is on an old bathroom mat that I took off the line today. She loves having it on the floor as part of her own personal gym, which consists of two cat scratching posts, and my computer chair, amongst other things. So I have to leave it there for the minute. I had been using it to soak up the water from my washing machine which is leaking. It is leaking because a hole was made in the rubber seal by my cardigan that got caught in it a couple of weeks ago. It is really annoying. I didn't fully realise the massive importance of the rubber seal to the smooth operation of a washing machine. I do now.
Tiger, Cassie, Lily
I did a watercolour of Connie, my beautiful first cat. She was black and had a sweet and gentle personality.
I made an embroidery of Boris, our second cat. She was tortoiseshell, fat, jealous and so funny!
So far I have not done a picture of Tiger and Lily-apart from photos. I had this idea to do a mosaic of their noses-but have yet to take good enough photos of each one. They all have such pretty noses I think!
