Aromatic Aster…and Kitty
A couple of years ago I planted some Aromatic Aster seeds.
This aster is related to mums, but is a native plant, one of the last to bloom in the fall. The first year, there were no blooms, but this year the plants are covered.
While taking pics of them the other evening, Kitty, our house cat, came over for a look.
What’ya think Kitty? Aren’t they pretty?
Oh, I guess. But they’re kinda boring.
Hmmm….well what would you rather be doing while you’re out here in the fresh air?
C’mere, I’ll show you.
Ah yes, the tree. Been practicing your tree climbing? (see Kittty’s earlier tree climbing escapades here)
Yes, check this out.
Very good Kitty. We’ve seen you do this before though. Was there something new you wanted to show us?
Oh yeah! Check this out, I can go higher.
Can you see me up here?
Well it’s kinda hard…..
Oh there you are! That’s about 20 feet isn’t it? Higher than you’ve ever been before.
Yeah! Are you impressed? What do you think?
I think it’s a good thing that Harland is a volunteer fireman, that’s what I think.

I love the Kitty stories…
Kitty does too. She thinks this should be Kitty On The Prairie. 🙂
Hi Suzanne, I’m trying to visit a new blog every day before the end of the year, and today you’re my new visit 🙂 Came over from Pioneer Woman. Loved your photos and loved reading your “About Me” section. Sounds like we’re both Kansas girls, but I’ve been one all my life. Blessings to you!
Thanks for your visit. Drop by again fellow Kansas girl!
LOL! Thank you for the sweeeeeeeet pics.. Hugs, Lola
Thank you Lola!
Very pretty and very cute!
Thank you Doe!
That’s cute! Have a great weekend!
Thank you Julie, you too!
Will see the grandchildren this weekend, we all love Kitty, the pictures are beautiful.
Thank you! Tell the grandchildren “HI” from Kitty. 🙂
You have a beautiful cat, and I see that he love adventure.
Kitty does love adventure – trouble is that she doesn’t have any fear.
Kitty is so cute! I hope she made it down. That always seems so much harder than up!
Kitty made it down ok. She worries me as she has no fear.
All your photos are so wonderful. Your site just makes me happy! I love your kitty photos! Thank you for sharing!!!
Thank you Diana!
oh my gosh! i can’t believe that cat!! she was totally showing off for you! I love your dialogue between you and kitty! very cute! i really like the photos of kitty next to the asters! they are so sweet!
That she does. She’s quite the character, but we love her anyway. 🙂
I love the kitty story too, but I am also interested in the asters. That is one flower I have not planted. I didn’t realize they are native. I will have to look for some seeds.
This site has native wildflower seeds: http://www.kansasnativeplants.com/
I love asters, and your post just made me think–I haven’t seen my asters this fall! Where oh where did they go? (I’m guessing the SC drought took its toll.) Look forward to visiting your site and reading more soon!
Thank you Julie! Asters like drier weather though, so I wonder why you didn’t have them this year?
