Last winter my store bought rosemary plant wasn’t doing so well, so I took a cutting while the plant was still okay and managed to grow this rosemary plant in the video.
As you can see the new plant is doing pretty well, so I decided to trim the branches in order to make it become fuller and bushier. I also decided to start more rosemary plants from the cuttings JUST IN CASE winter is tough on the plant again this year.
I haven’t been posting for a while because I got to go on a mini-vacation to my sister’s house. Its always nice to visit family and take a break from the daily happenings of my life. Also to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, Boy how I didn’t miss the traffic!
But don’t worry I didn’t forget about taking photos and videos while I was away 😀
So while I was in town I visited a place which I had seen Peacocks before. I wasn’t sure if they would still be there… but they were! And there were many more than I had seen before!
There were two males and at least 3 females. Sorry for some of the shaky footage, I was very excited to see these birds.. they seem like a legend that you couldn’t imagine was real until you see them yourself.
Here are a couple feathers we found on the ground as a souvenir:
Lisa is such a sweet cat, but sometimes she is confusing. First she acts like she doesn’t want out, then she goes cat scratch crazy trying to dig open the door.
All for the sake of a nap on the patio.
I saw a very interesting crawdad in the creek, it seemed to be somewhat blue. I really like their whiskers and pinchers 😀
I was walking to the store when I saw a little hopping bird near our apartment’s field, which was being mowed at the time. The chick was obviously very scared of the lawn mower and of me..
So I blocked the way to the nearby busy street (So it wouldn’t be hit by a car) and it hopped into a tree where we waited for momma/daddy bird to come to the rescue.
Maybe the little chick was trying to learn to fly when it was separated from its parent?
My Cherry Tomato and (regular?) Tomato plants are spoiled and get watered at least twice a day since it has been so hot during these summer months.
They wilted and were pouting for me to water them… even though I watered them earlier in the day.
See how they recover in this time lapse video after I watered them once again. The original duration of the video was 15 minutes.
I got to watch a Great Blue Heron at the wetlands again, this time it seems to have caught something and ate it. If you watch closely you can even see it licking its beak.
I harvested some catnip leaves from our plant and air dried them for Mr. Nice Guy to enjoy.
Here is his reaction:
Here he is a bit later:
Quite content, as you can see : )
