That's not THE kitty?Beautiful pics, by the way!
Beautiful photos, Les. Those pink blossom are such a welcome sight. No blossoms in my yard yet. I think there will actually be a touch of color in the next few days, though.
THE kitty, as in Frankie, the wanna-be vampire? ;) Yep. That's him. He's gotten big, hasn't he? 4 1/2 months old now (and all teeth).
Thanks Booklogged (and Andi). It sure is nice to have some flowers blooming after such a dreary winter. Unfortunately, the blooms on the magnolia bush don't last very long, especially with the heavy rain we've been getting. They'll be gone in a few more days, I'm afraid.
That is just about the most wonderful pink I've ever seen. Lovely.
Jenclair - I agree. I love the variation of shades in each single blossom; soft pink to fuschia.
I love these pictures. I'd like to have a magnolia again someday, the blossoms are so beautiful.
Pretty pink! And wow, Frankie sure has grown!
Gorgeous and oh, my gosh! Frankie has really grown!!!
Lovely photos. Isn't it nice to see green and colors again??!! Just curious about the last photo--you have a framed picture on the wall. Is that a print, or needlework? I do needlework and am always interested in others do as well--and what is on their walls!
Frankie is quite the handsome boy!!
LOL, Andi voiced the exact thought I was going to post! Wow, he has grown! And is a gorgeous cat, too.
Jen - You guys have a great yard for a magnolia. I'd stick one right in front and another out in the back that you could see from the kitchen or dining room window.Nat - He sure looks big in pictures, but I suppose he really has grown quite a bit in the past 3 months. We've been very careful to not over-feed him either (he had a little tummy distress early on when we gave him too much food in a 24-hour period). So he's not fat. Just big! :)Nancy - See my comment to Nat. Yep, he has grown, hasn't he?! I love his markings. And his little white paws.Danielle - It's a cross-stitch sampler my mom did for me years ago. I'll try to get a picture of it for you (might be difficult with the glass on the frame, but I'll try). I keep thinking about doing needlework again. I used to do cross-stitch (well, I finished one piece!) and I'd like to try my hand at needlepoint. Not sure I have time now, though, what with my new job and my hobbies (cooking, reading, gardening, blogging, etc.)! And, yes, I love seeing all the green and beautiful colors of spring. It was a long, dreary winter.SuziQ - Thanks. I'll tell him he has an admirer. ;)Lesley - He is quite the gorgeous fellow, isn't he? And he really doesn't shed much at all, which has been a nice surprise.
I love the color green in your beautiful home. We are in process of redecorating our living room/dining room/kitchen (practically one room in our 1960's split level) and I am definitely changing from the reds I've loved to green tones. With a few gold. I love the trim around the windows, the colors, the view, the garden, your whole flair for living.
Very cute pictures of the kitty!
How he has grown! I'm not seeing nearly enough Frankie pictures. :<) As for the lovely yard, we are on different planets. Let's see, my daylilies are up 1/4". No buds, no leaves, no green. But I do not lose heart. It will come, and is coming every day. That pink is so beautiful.
Fantastic pictures! I just love the pics of the blossoms....so beautiful. Thanks so much - these pics put a smile on my face :)
Bellezza - You have no idea how long I agonized over that paint color for our kitchen. I was paralyzed with indecision! But as soon as it went up, I loved it and still do (as I do our burgundy dining room). Now to get brave and figure out colors for the upstairs bedrooms. This little tiny house is by far our favorite. Lots of charm and character (read: sloping floors that creak everywhere you step). It's perfect for the two of us (plus Frankie, of course).ollie1976 - He is a cutie. I think we were pretty lucky when we got him.Nan - I know, I know! He keeps getting bigger and bigger! :) He's quite the sweetie, too. Yep, we're on different planets. Not only is everything bursting with blooms, it's time (ALREADY!) to mow the lawn. Sigh. ;)Amelia - The flowers put a smile on my face, too. I'm really excited to see my crabapple start blooming. The flowers on it are a stunning fuschia color that just takes my breath away. Stay tuned!
