Pictures

My parents have a bigger yard than most people in Silicon Valley - that is, bigger than a postage stamp, because they didn't violate building codes and build on to their house so it covers the entire fucking yard.

Seriously, I envy their back yard on a nice day. There is nothing more pleasant than sitting out there with iced coffee.

I also took some flower pictures.

I forgot what this one was called, but Mr. RK called it "the slut of the plant world," as many birds and bees were stopping by it:

The roses were super happy because it was warm and dry...




This was the view when we looked up, sitting at the table outside.


And when it got warm, we hopped in the pool.

Just the kind of back yard I'd want. Pool and all. :)

Hah! The word of verification is lioness. How cool is that!

Claire said...

Looks like super fun! And that pool looks awesome....don't think it'd work in our third floor flat!

Cxx

Beautiful backyard! And again, I WANT that pool! So nice...

Ily said...

I love slutty flowers and family visits. Great pics, RK!!

I worry about Mr. RK sometimes, lol.

In the town I grew up in (which I never go back to, even though it is just six miles away), people have done the same thing, built right up to the property line in all directions. Yuck.

Cartoon time (think Elmira from Tiny Toon Adventures):

clears throat

Ooooooooooooo, look at the pretty flowers!

LL Cool Joe said...

Slutty flowers, as if! Much more impressive than our sad collection, although I blame the bunny!

Lynn said...

What a great term that Mr. RK coined there - "the slut of the plant world." That's a keeper. :)

That pool time looks fun and cool.

Riot Kitty said...

RA: Me too. And that is cool.
C: Wouldn't work in our second floor one either ;)
A: I agree!
I: Thanks!
FB: You're not the only one. LOL
G: I'm picturing your avatar saying that...
Joey: I also blame the bunny!
L: Definitely a keeper!

Logical Libby said...

I can't believe there are slutty plants. Sluts just ruin everything.

Holland said...

I support the slutty flower cause... we should protect them from the bunny!

Riot Kitty said...

L: So true!
H: LOL! Joey, does your bunny eat this kind of flower?

Darth Weasel said...

If they are the slut of the flower world, how do you explain those white things that scatter and fly all over the place?

:-)

Mama Zen said...

"Slut of the plant world." That's hilarious!

Mike_D said...

Words are hurtful to this very promiscuous flower. I think it got that reputation in flower school.
"She's like the garden's bike," we kids used to say....

Riot Kitty said...

DW: Runner-up?
MZ: I thought so.
Mike: LOL!
