Still life with cat posterior

onederwApril 30, 2013

This is my front walkway garden. Red roses at front left are Francois Rabelais. Profusion erigeron is in the very front on either side of the steps. The brighter pops of white are c. paludosum. And Cosmo was looking straight at the camera just before I hit the shutter, I swear.

Oh, how pretty!
Cats are funny. I read a post some where that stated : Cats want the door left open encase they change their mind.

Aw lovely. Looks as though kitty is enjoying the view into the yard.

What are the taller red plants (or are they some kind if ornament?) to the left of kitty?

Ah yes, trovesoftrilliums. . .those blurry red spikes are Rocket snapdragons.

Oo Ty! I love tall snapdragons. I finally started them inside this year since the garden centers tend to only sell shorter varieties now.

Are those a couple delphiniums back there too?
Also are those the same small whit daisy hosenemesis has in the garden?

On cats: my dad stayed with us for a week last year and took up the position of cat doorman. He occasionally asks how the cats are managing without him around to open and close the doors approximately 20 thousand times a day.

That is beautiful...and the cat adds to it. Love the colors and the arrangement. Tall snaps are a treasure.

Kay, how beautiful!! Love your steps lined with all those healthy lush and colorful flowers spilling over, to soften the effect. So welcoming!
