let me first say that Iggy Meister
...is adjusting well here at Notforgotten Farm
he knows that he can get anything he wants
by turning on his little motor
and head-butting me, pete, hannah or...yes, even suzy!!!
(she has 'allowed' him into her very small circle-of-friends)
trying to catch up on what needs done, like laundry, floors and curtains...
and playing kitten-games, of course...
in the very early mornings or late evenings
( like me!)
the fence is only there to keep the dogs out, not the garden in...
as you can see how it creeps out hither & yon between pickets~
...the scarlet bee balm is 4' feet tall and gorgeous...
so many little humming birds & humming bird moths visit daily!
here's the lavender, lemon verbena and peanut bush ~
along with what will be a super huge mum again this autumn...
brown eyed susans, lillies, mint & yarrow
take over this corner of the garden...
and volunteer sweet annie is EVERYWHERE ~
please pardon the 'weeds' ~ i can only pull them when it's cool out.
...this is catnip ~ and you can only guess what happens
when I tuck a little into my pocket & bring it into the farmhouse !
(I'll have to dig it up, thin it out & replant for next year)
