Pictures of perfect bliss

 A devoted mama cat with her kittens. What with kitties, rabbits and chickens, we now have quite an animal kingdom in our yard, much to the delight of the children.
Two kittens of the same litter, peeping from behind the grape vine.

Speaking of the grape vine, we are now enjoying most delicious grapes - and it's delightful to eat them straight from the vine, warm from sunshine and very sweet. They will get even sweeter as summer draws to its inevitable end, and closer to Rosh Hashana, when the grapes are gone, we'll hopefully have a harvest of pomegranates to eat and give away to the family. 

I hope your day is beautiful,

Mrs. T

So sweet! My two year-old daughter is sitting beside me and she keeps saying "Kitty, Mommy! Kitty, Mommy!"

Ooohh, grape vines... have you ever considered fermenting vegetables, a la Nourishing Traditions? Pickles, especially, are improved by adding in leaves high in tannins, like grape leaves--they stay crunchier.

Can you tell I have been seeking, and sadly not finding, leaves that would work locally?

What a wonderful yard you have.
