Meet Purry Mason!

After looking for a kitten for several weeks, we finally found the perfect one! We named our little kitten Purry Mason. It is about eight weeks old.
Amazingly sweet and completely spoiled. But it does have a tough life which consists of sleeping, playing, and eating! This covers 100% of Purry's day. We haven't  just stayed inside and played with the kitten all the time. We worked outside quite a bit this weekend.
 The weather has been absolutely perfect with temps in mid 60s to low 70s. It is so great to have a yard again. Just to be outside in the sun and breeze is exhilarating. Greg has a garden going featuring five raised beds.
 I've been trying to figure out just exactly what we have growing in the flower beds around the house. We thought we would just wait and see what came up in them. Some of these might be weeds for all I know but they sure are beautiful.

 We think these might be called woolly geraniums.

 Several of our fruit trees are also flowering.

 As you can see, this bed of carrots, leaf lettuces, head lettuce, and radishes has responded to the nice weather and the 17 hours of sunlight each day.

 The weather that comes with summers here makes the winters here worth the trouble.
 Life is good!
