Found some Douglas fir tips in a shady spot that are still young enough to harvest.

My honeysuckle is exploding!

And my clematis is climbing the other side of the gate.

We are in for riotous flowers and a flower bower over the gate - yes!!

You've heard of forest bathing, right?

Well, kitten bathing is right up there. <3

(Just missing the sixth kitten, another calico named Gretel.)

Oh gosh, Dave snapped a great pic of Gert being a good mama to her hoard (and has it posted here).



I only see one calico in this pic and it looks like it might be Gretel, though I'm not sure. And maybe Gremlin is buried underneath.

Ah, the three calico girls! Gretel is the runt of the litter with Gremlin a close second smallest.

Willy is shy, though he is *fierce* about it and would hiss at you if you came too close.

I think he's realizing we bring food and warmth, so he's hissing a bit less already.
