When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for the moment. ~ Georgia O'Keefe

I'm such a fan of Georgia O'Keefe, you can stand in front of her paintings and just lose yourself.

August is the time for tough, heat loving, drought tolerant plants.  

Annabelle just outside the back porch door.

What I call the driveway garden.  

Wrapping paper is lots of fun to play in.  Sometimes it's a cave and sometimes it's confetti. 

Best Wishes to our friend Angel at  who is having a birthday.  Angel likes to have fun with wrapping paper too.  Angel's sister looks a lot like my friend Ricochet.
Ricochet hates having her picture taken.  That's one of the reasons she looks so angry.  She is also mad at our person for calling her Moby Rick.  Our person thinks that name-calling might shame Ricochet into losing some weight.   That's just not gonna happen.  

 My friend Toby thinks wrapping paper is for napping.

I am a fan of Georgia O'Keefe as well. I always thought they were big paintings for some reason and was surprised when I finally saw one. The scale was quite small and intimate, which sort of makes sense given her regard for the subject matter.
Your driveway garden looks impressive and beautiful. August is dry here as well. Today it is 31 making it feel more like mid-summer.
It is amazing how animals play almost like children. I can imagine how much fun the wrapping paper was.

Love the driveway garden! And what cat can resist any kind of shipping material?! Mine are often found in, on, and around the suitcases we still have out from unpacking from vacation.
