Out Back






 As I stand and look off the upper porch, my eyes are delighted with the flowers above. 
 The fog of August is sweeping across the Hill. We cannot fathom how green everything happens to be this time of year. Our neighbor with his batwing bush hog finished the mowing for us. A true southern neighbor. 
This greets me from the kitchen and when I first ramble outside to soak  in the sights of our world on the Hill. BTW Do you believe that the number of fogs in August is the number of snows you will have in the winter? My Grandma loved folklore. 
The Kitty Justice is to feel Blessed with a Green August and colorful flowers to greet you from their perch.

On the Wire or Fence

This is a good use for being on the wire as they are waiting their turn at the feeders. However, if you are on the wire politically, leaning left or right I truly hope you really pick the best person for the job by researching them. 
Recently I spent one afternoon researching the candidates for our cities mayor. It has come down to a run off because no one got 50 per cent of the votes. The two who got the most votes are in the run off election. I cannot say I like everything about them because you really never know someone deeply. But the one I do not care for has a husband who was past President of the ACLU and is currently on the board. Before  I  found out about this close association, I really did not care for her attitude or shall I say" Cattitude". Now if y'all have any knowledge of the ACLU, you are aware of their stand on Christianity. From everything I have seen of the organization, they use lots of money and time to wipe out God from America. Our schools, our pledge etc. etc. I think every person who supports the ACLU should take the college history course that I took many moons ago about How religion was the foundation of our country and how it influence our history. The fellow running opposite of her would be better for our city because our current mayor has taken the city DEEP into debt but our infrastructure has not been updated. If we are not careful Nashville will be the next Atlanta. We do not have the roadways and a mass transit system is really just a faint idea in someones mind. Oh yes, we have buses galore but pull up beside one and it will be virtually empty. We have one rail line from Wilson County (east of us) to downtown Nashville. Traffic is a genuine NIGHTMARE. If you go downtown, you can see all the new high rise buildings and dozen of cranes dot the sky building more. Our poor aging water lines and system will be over worked and folks will go dry as the county has to fix all the old ones that burst under pressure. 
I really do not have any idea how to fix Nashville's problems but someone much smarter than the abrasive woman would be better at the job. The one woman who could have managed the cities problems came in fourth in the election. 
The Kitty Justice is that everyone should have to take a test to vote and if they miss more than 3 answer, well they do not qualify to vote.

Ferns


I am very happy with the way my ferns look now. I had thought to throw some of them away when I brought them out of the basement this spring. Especially the top three. They looked beyond help but I brewed a strong pot of tea for each one and alas they all look great now. I must admit I had my doubts at first. The asparagus fern was one that Grand Dot had on the Hill when she lived in the little log cabin. I put it in the basket years ago and it seems to be rather happy in it's new residents. I love the looks of ferns as they are so very graceful and dance like little green fans in the wind. Even when wet they still appeal to me as the water has so many places to bead and reflect the world. 
The Kitty Justice is what flower or plant is graceful in your eyes?

Hummers

 I had to stand way back here to get a photo of the elusive hummers. They entertain us daily and Mimi loves to watch them. 
As you can see, the bill on this little guy is hidden by the feeder. 
Here is a little lady having a sip and on the other one is a Honey Bee from our neighbor's hives down the hill. 
The kitty justice is that most of the photos had to be deleted because the Hummers were just a burr. Either they are too quick or I am too slow. LOL

Lilly Kitty


 The above two photos are of the newest addition on the hill. Miss Lilly Kitty was the only female of the six kittens that were borned to my sister's walk on cat, Onyx. Below is a photo of Bandit when he was about Lilly's age. Lilly is lighter especially under her chin and she is grayer while he has more brown in his coat. 

The kitty justice is everyone has a cat on the hill. Purrrrrrrr
