New Kamp Kat In Town

This is the cat That was terrorizing the old kamp kat. They have come to a sort of truce. They stay away from each other and now we are feeding both. She is a beautiful cat and will now let me pick her up. He who should not be allowed to name pets has been calling her Marbles, while I am calling her Callie the calico.

As I have been busy with the fall garden harvesting, I am finding more gourds. I never planted seeds this season, so all of them are volunteer plants. My gourds from last season are dry and ready to scrub and paint.


My tiny rosemary plant grew big. It pairs well with the freezer full of pork. Just have to keep it a secret from he who is not adventurous with herbs.



Zinnia and cosmos are still blooming. I even saw an apple blossom on one of the trees yesterday. The cool nights and warm days have clearly confused my gardens.



My gardens aren't the only things confused! My humming birds are back!




Had to take this picture! Looks like the Keebler Elves kamp here, too!




Autumn is here, though. This maple is getting ready to shed her colorful outfit.

Wonderful pics and I love the little elf camp site.

It's still hot as hell here although it was cooler this AM and now this evening, but not by much.

ha. we build a little site for our elves out by the tree as well...

the weather is confusing it seems just when i think our plants are dying they find life again...

I like Marbles! It's just cute and unusual! :P

We just started seeing some red leaves on the ground here. It looks like autumn is going to get here after this beastly hot summer after all!

very nice pictures. love the elves' "kamp" picture.

the cat is so cute. i really like cats, but ron is very allergic to them and so is my new son-in-law. so... no kitty kat for me.

The picture of the hummingbirds is really great. Geeze - fall already? Really?

I love Marbles too [sorry gotta side with he who picked the more unusual name here :D] and the Keebler kamp is too cute. Weather here is weird too but at least we are saving on the air conditioning, eh?

Love the pictures. It really does look like Keebler property. The flowers are gorgeous. My rosebushes are drooping with blooms right now. It's nice to have more time to enjoy them before fall fully sets in. My sister is having an outdoor wedding October 10 so I'm hoping the leaves don't start changing quite yet!

Your rosemary looks great - wish mine looked half as vigorous. Going to dry it, make oils or vinegars with it?
