It's Tuesday

 Tuesday's Garden Pics:

Visiting butterflies and frogs, oh my.

AND the critters.

Booted out of her bed.


Frank, Penny and the apparition:)

How's your garden growing? How's your critters? If neither apply, how's life in general?

Loving the garden and all of the critters.
They are thriving here too - which is lovely, including a marmalade youngster who has been sunning itself in the daffodils (fortunately without Jazz noticing).

Great pics. Have a good Tuesday.
Take care.

Nice legs!
Your garden is looking quite good towards the end of summer.
The butterfly looks real. Great photo.

Hi Sandra - love the plant selections, as too the critters ... always fun to see - but those legs as Andrew mentions give me the biggest smile! Take care - Hilary

What is the ivy looking plant with the delicate pink flowers? They look like butterflies. Your garden is beautiful as is the swallowtail butterfly. I haven't seen more than 1 or 2 butterflies this year. The frogs made me laugh. Are they planning a jail break? Is the ghost bringing a treat for Frank and Penny for posing so nicely for pictures?😺 Take care and enjoy your day!

Lovely flowers, including those breaking through the privacy fence. And that butterfly is gorgeous. But those legs in your aberration are the best!

My garden is dying due to the heat and my critters are whining because they haven't been fed this morning. What else is new (grin).

Sandra Cox said...

Ooh, I'm intrigued by the marmalade youngster...

Birgit said...

Love your flowers and I like that greenery with the white and pink blossoms..what is the name of that plant? I love your doggie and cat and that is so funny. Actually our diva cat, who is so thin will take over Wallace’s bed while Wallace just whimpers, looks at her and then just lays down because this big dog is scared of the diva

Sandra Cox said...

Thanks, Val. You too.
Hugs received and returned.

I love it when cats take over dog beds.

Your butterfly shot is fantastic.

Jeanie said...

I didn't think anything could be lovelier than the flowers, till the butterfly took my breath away! Is Frank the cat or dog? Well, that is one of the prettiest cats I've ever seen.

Love the frogs and the butterfly.

D.L. Finn said...

Beautiful colors in the garden and I love the swallowtail! That picture of losing the dogbed is very familiar in our house too! Hugs:)

Sandra Cox said...

Thanks, Yvonne:)
Hope your Tuesday is good too:) It was grocery shopping day here.

Sandra Cox said...

Why thank you:)
He is. I got lucky on that shot. He held still for me.

Sandra Cox said...

Heh. Thanks, Hilary;)
Stay safe. Be healthy.

Sandra Cox said...

Asiatic Jasmine. I just love it. It's surprisingly hardy and is an evergreen in this zone.
If you have an opportunity, get a butterfly bush. It really draws them in. I love watching them from the kitchen window.
Those moochers are always getting treats:)
Thanks, CJ. You enjoy yours too.

Sandra Cox said...

:)
We've been lucky to get rain here and lately the temps have improved.
If your critters are like mine, whining will quickly turn to demanding;)

Christine said...

Lovely photos Sandra, flowers and cute critters.

Sandra Cox said...

Asiatic Jasmine. It's a great little plant.
Penny empathizes, Wallace:)

Sandra Cox said...

Heh. Me too:)
Thanks. I got lucky with that one. My phone is as old as dirt:)

Sandra Cox said...

Frank is the cat. Thank you. He got his summer trim this spring and his fur is at the in-between stage. When it's completely grown out he looks huge:)

Sandra Cox said...

Thanks, Jamie:)

Sandra Cox said...

Thanks, Denise.
Smiling over 'losing the dog bed' at your house too.
