Why H Can't Paint

H loves to paint. However, Sluggo loves H and insists on being with him any time H is sitting or standing near the kitchen island. Unfortunately, H likes to do his painting at the island and Sluggo will not let him concentrate.

Ooh, what's Daddy doing this morning?

That paint brush sure is tasty.

It's hard to be angry at Sluggo when he's just so darned cute!

On another note, here is the rock garden before I managed to get in there and clean out all the perennial mess. Every year I try to buy a few junipers or thread leaf cypress to fill in. When we had the house built, they had to blast the rocky ledge to put in the foundation, so we ended up with this rubble on the hill side. An automatic rock garden!

This is the herb and veggie garden before the annual clean up.

This is the after photo taken from the upper deck. Now all I have to do is bring in some nice composted cow manure and plant a few tomatoes.

Later on that day, our resident fox came trotting up the hill. Sorry for the blurry pic, but he was trotting quite fast.

Life is Good,

Hugs, Giddy

Sluggo is hilarious (glad to see another feline is so *ahem* helpful in the creative process!) and the fox is lovely! Your gardens look so neat, it'll be no time before tomatoes take over!
