I am certain that you will be very impressed by the diligence with which Mosaic Lady "maintains" them.
Here you see Willie and me enjoying the verdant, terraced gardens, teeming with fresh vegetables and many kinds of bulb flowers.
Here is a better view which shows you the unrelenting commitment that Mosaic Lady has to caring for Walter's Memorial area.
(This makes me glad that I am not her favorite cat.)
I am trying to determine if I can squeeze my wide body between the slats to get off the back deck because I think the leaf pile is big enough to swallow me whole.
I am especially fond of this lush "flower bed" next to the carport.
Martha Stewart, don't hate me because I get to live here!
I am going to enter this "planter" in a national Container Gardening contest.
I am sure to place high, don't you think, Kitties?
(Maybe if they had a category called growing cigarette butts in a planter used as ashtray by previous tenants.)
This is a very good photo that shows you not only the leaves on the front porch by the door, but also the dead bugs and their webs clinging to the house.
Here I am trying to find the stepping stone path that leads from the porch over to the front deck area.
I may be here until summer.
Mira the front "lawn"! Wouldn't this make everycat proud to call their own?
I hope Victor and Bonnie's Mom sees this. Her self-esteem will skyrocket.
Actually, the lawns looked exactly like this last Dec. 3 when the family landed here. Mosaic Lady did nothing at all to them, and come spring, the grass was plentiful and magically leaf-free. (You may recall just how plentiful from previous posts.)
I am confident that ML will put the same amount of effort into the project this spring.
Be careful Mosaic Dawg!!!
You do not want to sprain your knee again upon impact with 8 tons of leafy resistance.
Here we are on the front deck area, atop the "grouting table".
Mosaic Lady clearly takes great pride in the condition of her work station.
I am becoming increasingly depressed.
I decide to survey the forest, determined to find a tree whose leaves are not sitting in my yard.
(Leaf has a flavor!)
Like many things in life, Kitties, my "yards and gardens" are more attractive when viewed from a distance.
And through a dirty window.
