|Pipig exiting her screened porch|
|She climbed up on this pot and spent several minutes staring at the garden through the metal screen for unknown reasons|
I don't know why she was so fascinated by the view through the metal screen. She didn't have any interest in the plants that drew my eye.
|She ignored Lotus berthelotii 'Amazon Sunset'|
|She couldn't have cared less about the blooms of Bulbine frutescens|
|or how nice the pink Freesia look growing up through and around Cuphea 'Starfire Pink'|
|She continued on her way toward the backyard patio|
For a moment, it looked as though the Ageratum corymbosum had caught her interest but my guess is that she may have sighted a lizard.
|If she saw a lizard, she apparently decided it wasn't worth chasing|
|Ageratum corymbosum is full of buds but has no blooms yet|
|I thought maybe she was after another lizard, or worse yet a bird|
|But I guess she was drawn to the Pennisetum 'Fireworks'. Recently cut back, it's already producing bright new foliage.|
After allowing her to munch on ornamental grass for a few minutes, I moved her back to the main walkway to keep her a safe distance from the bird feeder. She wasn't pleased.
|She looks irritated, doesn't she?|
I let her stroll a bit further, nipping at her heels but then noise from across the canyon made her nervous. She doesn't like loud noises.
|At first, I thought the source of the noise was this house remodel across the canyon - remodeling is continuous in these parts|
So I cut Pipig's stroll short, set her back in her porch, and closed the door. Back on her cat tree perch, loud noise forgotten, she gave me the stink-eye.
