We've been talking about the Mama's sunflower house for awhile now, but thought we'd wait till it was complete before we posted the pics. The Mama has documented it's growth since day one, but has narrowed the viewing selection down to 11 pics out of 250 gazillion - MOL! I won't say much more except that she's decided to do this again next year to improve on some of the things she could have done better. Like having the door on the south side of the house instead of the west, so that when she takes pics, the flowers AND the front of the House are actually facing the camera! Anyway, here we go!
#1 - the beginning
#2 - sunflowers coming up!
#3 - scarlet runner beans blooming now
#4 - Little Mama: "The cat who walked through walls"
#5 - Little green frog comes to see the House
#6 - Humming bird comes to sip from the scarlet runner beans
#7 - Some of the different colored sunflowers
#8 - The Heavenly Blue morning glory and a pink volunteer
#9 - sunflower and a yellow bee
#10 - The door to the Sunflower House
#11 - the Sunflower House complete except for the morning glories

If you would like to play the Spring game, just copy my diary, change the answers to yours and tag five of your furiends!
Five Things I Like About Spring:
1. Everyone has mentioned birds, but no one has mentioned…frogs! I LOVE the little froggies in the spring!
2. And moths – especially the big fat ones.
3. I love laying outside on the catwalk in the cattery when the weather is warm – ummm…
4. Walking in the garden
5. Rolling in the fresh warm dirt after the Mama has raked up her raised garden beds
Thanks, Jezzie for asking me to play.
I am tagging:

I get to report this, because neither one is admitting to it - Samhain and Fearless actually curled up together on the Mama's bed last night!
The Mama couldn't quite believe it when, first - Fearless woke her with a gentle pat-pat-pat. Not typical behavior for the Midnight Marauder, who's former approach used to be something more like a sledgehammer head bonk in the face, though she hasn't been doing that either for awhile now. The Mama rolled over to pet her and she lay down quietly with her chin on the Mama's thigh.
But the real surprise was when Samhain came up on the bed beside Fearless. The Mama expected her to leave in a huff when she realized HER usual sleeping post was taken, but instead she lay down! And her back was actually touching Fearless's back!!! So, for a long time the Mama was afraid to move and ruin this happy family get-together.
A postscript to this is that the Mama noticed Samhain later this morning lying near Owl, who was in one of his favorite spots on top of his condo! She was so concerned at this un-Samhain-like behavior that she had to go make sure she wasn't sick!!!
Could it be that the Queen of Snark is mellowing?
