Pic of my cat, Lucy, w/ me one evening on my front patio, when she was just a couple/ few months old. That's my tiny garden there, dormant in Summer, but which now has a small crop of beets in it.

EDIT: I see that it is likely not pressure treated, carry on.

It is regular Douglas Fir. I may upgrade that little garden spot next fall, with some sort of masonry block that is fairly narrow. I'll glue them together with a fast setting dual component epoxy, and then some sort of water proof caulking. And maybe paint the exterior white, to help keep it cool.

Beautiful yard, Goose!

Lizzy, 1 yr old, and Lacy, ~8 or 9 weeks old.
As thus we sat in darkness
Each one busy with his prayers,
"We are lost!" the captain shouted,
As he staggered down the stairs.

Revisiting this image of mine. In the rock “face,” just above the center foreground gem-like glistening rocks, do you see the bearded profile of the face of the Ancient Of Days, looking into the sun bright resurrection? The forehead, eye, cheekbones, nose, and beard are are all so clear. Unfortunately, He looks like He is sleeping. This is a hole in a sea stack along the Pacific Ocean. The bright light is the setting sun.

I had never seen this before in the image. My brother pointed it out.
