Flora and Fauna

I love my place here in Margaritaville. But it's not without its drawbacks. The houses are sandwiched together--a feature I disliked from the moment I saw the place. Today, after three months of living here, I did something about it.


In a month or two the honeysuckle will completely obscure the block wall and the neighbor's window. The hummingbirds have already given their stamp of approval.

I was inspired by the project I did yesterday as a birthday present for my mom.



As the plants grow fuller and taller, the view from her room will get better and better.

The dining room and living room side windows now look like this:


And now for the fauna:


Piper gets fresh water in her water bowl a couple of times a day. But what she really likes is a glass of water served in the living room.

Bloody cats! Ours loves to gently nudge glasses to the edge of the counter and then watches as the laws of gravity take over.
