Sunday HA Update

We received over an inch of rain Friday night – the first measurable amount in a long time. I had harvested asparagus Friday afternoon. When I went out to harvest yesterday morning, I couldn’t believe it. This is one of the spears I found.

We have had a wonderful asparagus harvest this year. I have one more week to pick and then it’s time to put it to bed for the year.

The cherries are also turning. Now is the race to wait for the cherries to ripen and hurry out and pick them before the birds eat them all. I picked the first ripe ones.

Meanwhile a few more irises have bloomed.

The next two irises I’ve not seen before. The yellow flag I planted several years ago and it never bloomed until this year.

This one has also never bloomed and I think it is Orange Harvest but not sure. It’s a very pretty iris.

Looks like this will be another year with not very many irises blooming. Guess I’ll have to wait until next year to see some of my favorites!

Our new kitty Dusty has really become Puddin’s buddy. It’s taken awhile, but they are finally friends. I don’t think he knew how to play with other cats so she’s been showing him the ropes. He also has been playing with toys the other cats never liked.

This toy was in the garage. I brought it in to the house yesterday and Dusty had so much fun with it. He was moving so fast that I had a hard time getting him in focus.

Puddin saw how much fun he was having that she just had to check it (and him) out.

That was the calm before the storm. Shortly after that picture was taken, he jumped on her and chased her around the livingroom. Then he settled back down with the toy.

Later on I caught them hanging out next to each other in the cubes. These are hooked together and they both like to play in them.

I started jury duty last week so it may be a tad quiet on this end for this month. I have lots to share and more projects in my head, but they will have to wait until this is over. Have a wonderful what’s left of the weekend and a great week.
