Spring front yard flowers and one annoyed kitty

I'm just a blogging fool today. That's because I should be cleaning and running errands and packing before my trip.

Here's what's blooming in my front yard right now. Had gone out to check the mail and couldn't resist grabbing my camera.

Emily rarely smiles for the camera. In fact, she rarely sits still for the camera. It's difficult to get good pictures of her because the moment she knows you're paying attention to her, she jumps down and starts rubbing against your leg. When I was photographing poppies this morning, she bit me to get my attention.

yellow 'Lady Banks' rose

Pink cyclamen


Calif. Poppies against Western redbud (Cercis occidentalis)

More Lady Banks

Poppies and Ixia, both of which get by on natural rainfall


  1. I love lady banksia; have always dreamed of draping my entry with lady banksia.

  2. That is a lovely portrait of Lady Emily! Of course, all your posies are very pretty too. Why hasn't my ixia bloomed yet? grrrrr.

  3. Gorgeous pictures! I especially love the California poppies...

  4. Beautiful photos!

  5. Next time Emily bites you, bite her back. ;-)
