My side porch has this planting that is starting to fill in more fully with growth. I like these new geraniums with the pansy like flowers. It reminds me of the one that I have on the front porch that I blogged about before called Martha Washington. I don't know the name of this one but it's reds are different.
It has a nontraditional foliage on it which is darker green and fringed.
I have some striking photos of this regal lily but I am trying to pick from them one to enter into a contest. I will just show you this single bloom of my third generation regal lily. Grandma Brooks, my mom, and now it is at my house.
A bonus section to my blog, which is called, "What is it?" This was in the old house my father had toen down 40 years ago. I want to call it an egg beater. The handle is in good shape with it's maroon painted handle but the wire configuration is all very rusty. I would never dip it into any food item today.
I finally worked on my tomato plants, covering them with their cages today and I will need to get the posts around them soon. I can't believe those little sprouts turned into mature tomatoes. My wife and I have been busy painting and it makes the news now when we are not having rain. My last little kitten was taken home yesterday by one of the neighbor's 6 year old twin girls. I asked the one if she got bit and scratched and she smile and shared all of her wounds. She is so strong-willed that she wasn't going to let a little bleeding get in the way. Her twin sister proceeded to take it from her and picked it up by the neck and helped transport it to a crate in the house. The mother is a feral cat and still hisses at me when I go to feed her but I am intending to get her tame and will keep feeding her even though her kittens have all been kidnapped now. My goal is to take her on a visit to my vet. The owner's have the kittens in their living room and the mother is outside with me at the garden shed. I will let you know when I get her tamed.
Thanks for stopping in.......
