Wildlife Wednesday

 Mommy spotted this hawk from the back porch and she took his picture. We will have some better pictures to show you later as he decided to help Mommy weed the Butterfly Garden and she was able to get some nice close ups.

 Before we go we want to wish Mommy and Daddy a Happy Anniversary.

Tuiren Tuesday (Throwback)

Last November Daddy was working on building a new pump house. Now he is remodeling the kitchen. It seems like he is always working on some project or another.

The cuphea

Fire spike, the Hummingbirds really like it.

I have no idea what Mommy was taking a picture of here. We think maybe the mushrooms/toadstools.

Sometimes Mommy is very strange. It has been HOTTER than HOT and Humid here when it isn't raining, so we haven't done much walking.

I miss walking. ~Tuiren, reporting for ATCAD

Mancat Monday

 Hello, thanks for coming by to see us.

 It has been raining a lot here. I am taking advantage of the sunshine to check on our plants.

 The geese assured me that they have been keeping an eye on things for me. They don't mind the rain.

 Mommy says that geese eat bugs, I think they need to eat more bugs. The bad insects mosquitoes, horseflies, and deerflies have been particularly bad this month.

For those of you who want to know more about Canadian Geese. Canada geese are primarily herbivores, although they sometimes eat small insects and fish. Their diet includes green vegetation and grains. The Canada goose eats a variety of grasses when on land. It feeds by grasping a blade of grass with the bill, then tearing it with a jerk of the head.

 And now to show you some of our purrty flowers. I hopes you like them.

Scylla Sunday with Mini Me

 Oh my, is it Sunday already? It appears I have over slept. Chimera will you do the selfies today?

 Sure Scylla, I have been practicing my super model poses. My Haughty look.

 My Sultry Look (it may need a little work).

 My falling asleep on the job look.

 And my Intense look. I think any of them will make good selfies.

 And Scylla looks so cute asleep we will just take a picture of her too. ~Chimera, posing for ATCAD

 Hi, yep I can still get up here. Pretty good for a old girl huh. I just wanted to say HAPPY FATHER'S DAY to all the Dads out there before I went back to sleep.

Caturday Art

The lovely Miss Yin is rocking the Foiled effect.

As promised the portrait of Tuiren by Pride Bites.

Now for some scrapbook pages Mommy made. This was for the Nature Journal.

This one was to create a reflection, do you see the lady's reflection in the water? Mommy did one for the swan too, but you can barely see it.

Mommy made this for a friend who passed away, they used to go riding together.

Mommy did this one for fun, if you look you will see Chimera hiding in the picture.

This one was for Vivien Leigh.

Singing in the rain.

And Mommy Foiled this picture too. ~ATCAD

Flowers on Friday

Mexican Tarragon, Mommy says it taste good.

Wildflower we think it may be Ironweed.

Pretty little volunteer violets. ~ATCAD

Thankful Thursday in the Garden



Mexican Petunias

A pretty little wildflower.

Ginger lilies they smell divine.

Candle bush, we are very lucky even though it is a tropical and it dies in the winter it manages to grow back from seeds. We are thankful that it does.  ~ATCAD
