Yippee! We finally got a new work kitty! His name is Mr. Man, and no that wasn't my idea.My ideal name for him would be Mr. Evil because about an hour after he came to us he decided to devour one of the caged birds the owners have. He jumped right up on top the cage and somehow got to one of them.Look at this precious face. Does it say killer to you? Actually he's a very, very sweet kitty. Loves people and hanging around them. He'll probably be bringing us little "presents" before too long.At work we have a lot of these whiskey barrels that we pot up. This is one I did using ornamental mustard as the center piece. There is also dianthus, pansies and dusty miller. I'm not a big fan of dusty miller for the summer but love it for the winter.This small lake is on my way to work. Notice the trees haven't turned just yet. I love driving by here. Sometimes ducks and geese are out there floating around.Here's one little bright spot among the green. This chrysanthemum is blooming in my backyard. Sorry I don't know the variety.Remember these blooms from a former post? I wasn't sure if it was a coreopsis or rudbeckia. It's coreopsis 'leavenworthii'. While researching it I found out it is Florida's state wildflower.And on a final note, it's raining again! It started just a little while ago. The drops were so big I just had to see if I could get a picture.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
