|Kitties do not pose well!|
I stopped planting anything there years ago. The truth is that in order to get anything to grow around here you have to have an 8 foot high fence to protect it. That hasn't seemed aesthetically appealing to me, to put a tall fence around a tiny pie slice of ground. I watch my hopeful children and on a few occasions, my friends, plant and water to no avail. Nothing grows but mud or dust, depending upon the season...until this year!
This year it has grown a pair of kittens! Our two kittens have decided it is just perfect for their romping and napping. They are the perfect crop for me. They feed and water themselves on top of the old refrigerator and then return to their jobs of being scenic in front of my porch. One is a tabby point Siamese mix with blue eyes, the other is a grey butterfly tabby with no tail and enormous ears. They sleep, they roll and tumble, they groom each other on that little patch of dirt. As much as I have pictured the deep hues of lavender or irises in that spot, the muted colors of kittens are a close second. Besides, flowers don't purr.
I have decided, if life gives you dust...grow kittens!
I hope you all have a beauty day. I hope you have whatever equals kittens in your life to occupy your most disappointing spot of useless ground.
If you have time, please tell me what your kitten equivalent is.
