The Real Twitter

So, the weather is good, been out for a run and now trying to get down to the task of customizing my workbench in the office.  This has turned out to be an ongoing process and requires extra focus on my part because I am no carpenter... In the midst of measuring and drilling holes in wood, my concentration is interrupted by the sounds of excited twittering in the garden beds just outside my office window.  Looking up, I see them, curiously checking out the world within the glass...

Lulu's Toilette

Sometimes, even kittens get the blues... well, only when they have to get a bath and blowdry.  Why?  Because they have been rolling about in the dirt and dust of the grubby garage floor.  In our house, if kitties want to loll about on doonas and soft furnishings, then they have to be clean, no question about it.  Lulu is our beloved ex-feral and seems to have a higher tolerance of (soap and) water than the our other three.

Here is Miss Lulu, in the chair.

Spring Has Sprung!

So, the Spring weather has been magical thus far (first week already) and I decided to head outside and blow the dust off my gardening tools.  I mowed some lawn, re-potted a few Bromeliads and sowed seeds of a very unusual vegetable called Black Russian Salsify.  I also happened to notice this guy walk across the pavement and stopping to munch on some of the greenery sprouting between the paving stones.  Maybe his (or her) wings have just finished unfurling and this is his (or her) first bite to eat... who knows?  I left him (or her) to it.
