It’s Saturday morning and it’s sunny outside and Charlie is dozing at the end of my recliner.
Ivy has just gone to her padded bed behind my chair to nap after an hour or so playing on her cat tower.
Ivy & Her Cat Tree:
My word she loves that thing! I wonder what it is about cats and cat trees and towers? What attracts them like magnets?
Ivy took to it right away and spends a good amount of time on it each day.
I’m glad the tunnels are the size they are because Ivy barely has room to turn around in them as it is.
She loves to look out from every angle and play silly Ivy games. I’m having as much fun watching her as she’s having fun playing with her new toy.
When Ivy Was Born, We Think:
I know Ivy was born sometime in May, though the rescue didn’t know when. So this month Ivy Lou turns 2 years old.
The ceiling fan is going in the dining room and that sends the blue and green wind chimes I hung last year tingling in the breeze. I just love that sound.
I miss that sweet sound during winter.
Charlie and I go out many times a day to the patio to see if there are any perceptible changes or blooms. Or butterflies or birds enjoying the patio.
The Evergreen Tree Overhanging My Patio:
The tree that overhangs my patio is blooming now. Tiny white blooms appear right around May 1 that give out the most wonderful fragrance.
But like much of nature, it is short-lived. In just a few days the white blooms turn brown around the edges and then begin to fall all over the patio, causing a mess.
Bees & Butterflies & Wasps:
But in the interim, the bees and butterflies and wasps swarm those blooms.
You were right about the owl sound actually coming from a mourning dove. I heard the sound and happened to look up to the roof and saw one there.
I’m still waiting on something from Amazon to get my blue fountain up and running. And then of course I’ll take photos and show them to you.
It’s in the mid-’70s right now and looks to be a beautiful day.
Happy Saturday. Stay safe.
