The start of a new year.

It was a busy year when I think about it but it went so fast
A new bathroom at my place
My son and daughter in law sold their house in Sydney they are now Banana Benders.
My daughter had twin babies and little honeys they are too.
But I'm at home now for January my cat Leeroy missed me she has followed me around all morning so I took my camera with me and took pictures, open up all the windows..
A catch up sleep while eating breakfast.
Even a doze on the floor while making the bed
What's that I see

Not easy to read a magzaine
that doesn't look very comfortable
A new blue dragon, where did it come from., my son left it he told me on the phone the other day.

There is three chairs and a table under these 4o'clocks

I didn't steal this umberella, from a street cafe a friend gave it to me maybe he stole it I don't know.

 My grand daughter liked this painting.

 Many birds have moved into the local area these two are more or less permanently into my tree.
 Kidney and the beer fairy playing with a stick both are easily amused.

Well bye from me, not to good with these do it yourself photos.


  1. Love Leeroy, who doesn't seem to want to let you out of her sight.
    My four o'clock plants are all yellow. They do take over don't they?

    1. We should swap plants mine are all red.

  2. Sweet how Leroy followed you around all day. It must be nice to get home again, but will you miss the grandbabies soon?
    Your garden is looking great.

    1. Leeroy often does that when I've been away for a while but it doesn't last long.

  3. Leroy looks very uncomfortable on the couch, but his ballast might keep him from falling off. In Victoria, receiving stolen property is an offence. Thirty in the klink days for you.

  4. My cat is happy enough with my company, but when my granddaughter comes in the door from school he attaches to her and I don't see him until the next day.

  5. Hello, Merle! You had a blessed 2016 year. Your garden looks beautiful, I would love to see those birds in my trees here. Cute kitty photos. I wish you all the best in 2017, a happy healthy New Year for you and your family.

  6. Happy New Year, dear Merle! I was tickled pink to read about your daughter having twins - what a blessing!

    I hope 2017 is filled with lots of beauty and joy. Hugs to you!

  7. You cat looks happy :) The photo on the couch looks interesting, looks like he's going to fall off, but reflecting on when we had a cat, he used to do the same and never fell off!
    Happy New Year.

  8. .. hi Merle.... it was a busy 2016.... I love all your 4 o'clocks..they are so pretty in big clumps... I don't have any at my place...

  9. Your garden is looking fabulous. Leeroy looks like a very contented cat.

  10. Merle, your garden looks great as usual.. I really LOVE the Streets umbrella and the dolls house! Poor Leroy was making up for lost time with you, lol. Your new grandchildren are absolutely adorable! Happy New Year.

  11. A nice start to the year, Merle! Looks peaceful and cozy there with lots of little friends to keep you company :) Love those beautiful stained glass windows. A Happy New Year to you and your family! xx Karen

  12. Your cats are having fun playing all around your house being mischievous. I don't do that well with selfies either. :)
