Peevish Pen

Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

I'm an elderly retired teacher who writes. Among my books are Ferradiddledumday (Appalachian version of the Rumpelstiltskin story), Stuck (middle grade paranormal novel), Patches on the Same Quilt (novel set in Franklin County, VA), Them That Go (an Appalachian novel), Miracle of the Concrete Jesus & Other Stories, and several Kindle ebooks.

Passion & Cats

Every year, the passion flowers bloom in my yard. When I first moved here in 1999, one plant grew in a rather restrained flowerbed. Now the bed has been taken over by redbud trees, daylilies, and Rose of Sharon. The passion flower has spread to the lawn.

It's climbing into the redbud.

I sometimes provide it things to climb on—like this metal table with no top.

Do the cats enjoy the blooms?

The bees certainly enjoy them. Do you see both bees on this bloom?

Here's the redbud that the passion flower vines climb. Do you see the vines at the base of the tree? Do you see Camilla hiding under the tree? To the left is a dogwood that a few vines climb. To the left of the trees is Jim-Bob. Smith Mountain is in the distance.

The cats leave the passion flowers and go in search of other adventures.

Love how the cats all wander off on an adventure together.

Pretty pictures. Your cats are like mine - they have to be where ever I am and they have to investigate everything.

This is really a nice experience with cats. All along in garden that fills the air with its greenish moist. Indifferently suitable for a garden enthusiasts. This could be a best spot for organic rose gardening.
