Here are my purple diamonds to add to my set of rainbow colors for the Rainbow Scrappy Challenge.
And for those of you that enjoy garden shots, here is a rose growing in my backyard. I had never seen this rose before it started to do this. Due to a locally notorious ice-storm, my backyard transitioned from a shade garden to a sunny garden after six trees attacked my house. This rose, planted by the previous owners, was hiding out under azaleas, and is now enjoying its time in the sun.
And meet Molly's new friend. This cat comes up to our back patio to have staring contests with Molly. Molly takes the visitor in stride. Buddy seems confused, probably wondering how Molly can be in two places at once. The cat seems healthy and is well groomed, so I assume it belongs to a neighbor. But Molly's attraction is strong, because I took this picture after it had started to rain and the cat had moved to beneath the eaves. After I shut the blinds, the cat left. (This was not her first visit.)
