Cats, Cacti, & Succulents

Is it Memorial Day weekend yet? I’ve been waiting to start planting, and here in NW PA we’ve been told for the past 6 (or is it 7?) years that we’ve lived here, “Don’t plant before Memorial Day!” Why? Because frost. No kidding, it snowed just a few days ago. Ridiculous.

“The Potting Room”

An original illustration and watercolor painting.
It’s that time of year! Getting our seeds planted, with help from the cats of course. =P

Painted on Arches Watercolour, cold pressed, 300g/m2 140lb, 100% pure cotton, acid-free paper.Size 9″ x 12″ – sprayed with a matte varnish.


Thankfully, these cats didn’t have to wait, their plants were already potted, or being potted! I was going to start planting in the ground yesterday, but it poured all day. I’m thinking this might have been a sign. “Remember…Memorial Day…”

Happy National Siblings Day!


In honor of siblings day, my children planted some flower seeds. The race is now on to see who’s grows first! Tiarnan’s Nasturtium, or Anna’s Marigolds. =)

It was the perfect day too, a lovely warm wind and lots of sunshine!
