Pussy Cat

A couple of weeks ago, I told my Pussy Cat that I bought her a plant.  It was a Fuchsia called Pussy Cat.  I couldn't refuse it, even though I didn't know what the flower looked like.  It had plenty of buds, so I have been patiently waiting for it to flower.  So here it is . . . Pussy Cat


 Beautiful Summer roses in my friend's garden.
 . . . and my happy petunia pot!

 With special stove paint, I blackened the pot belly - it looks great and I'm looking forward to toasting some marshmallows one of these days.
 After adding some chicken manure to some pots, these snapdragons sprang to life.  I guess some food was what they needed.  They are really fancy ones I planted some other year and didn't think they would come back.

 This is a nice succulent I have in a pot that always looks good and is easy to strike.  It caught my eye tonight when I was taking photos.
Last day of Summer Holidays tomorrow!  NO APPOINTMENTS being made - just "chilling" as the kids would say, and getting my head in a space that is ready to head back to work after a brilliant holiday AT HOME.

What a pretty and cute named fuchsia.

I'm glad you had a lovely holiday, filled with projects, flowers and time off.

Enjoy heading back to school and your kids there.

Love and hugs ~ FlowerLady

Lovely lovely flowers, Annie, especially those delightfully frilly snapdragons. It was lovely to catch up for a cuppa and a garden tour. Enjoy chilling out today. x

Our girls always loved the snapdragons. It's such a treat to make the "mouth" open!
