This photo was taken in May of 2010.
I was about to take a photo of my flower pots when Sierra photo-bombed the picture before photo-bombing was popular.
The grass was green and the flowers were abundant in May back in 2010. Not this year. We are weeks behind and our grass is far from green.
Gardens are empty.
It has rained for two days steady and we expect more this week.
That should green up the grass if nothing else.
A visit from Gwyn and her mommy takes away the rainy day blues.
That is a Catalpa Tree in the foreground. We have started it from seed and it is growing quite well.
The plan is to plant it on our property so we can enjoy the beautiful flowers and fragrance.
Amazing seed pods.
Look at the size of those leaves.
This is one in full bloom.
Just look at the blossoms. So pretty.
The branches are thick. It's a great tree for playing in when you are a kid.
It's about as tall as Gwyn now. I'll take another photo of it when it is planted, grown and Gwyn is playing in it. :)
It will grow to 20 feet in 10 years.
Right now, she just wants to grab the leaves. Or anything else in her reach. :)
I'm off to cat-sit two orange and white brothers and a silky, black beauty.
Tomorrow I will finally show you lots of kitties that have been in my care lately.
May is always a busy month for cat-sitting with Mother's Day travellers, weddings and business trips.
I'm looking forward to seeing some of my regulars and meeting a few new kitties, too.
Hope you are all enjoying some sun where you are.
