I want OUT !

Tulip , " I want out into the garden too! This cat balcony is far too cramped compared to the Great! Outdoors."





Tulip , " The Great! Outdoors has all sorts of scents waffling...um...wafting up my nostrils . Furthermore , I get  unlimited possibilities for future recall of my blissful outdoor sessions afterwards , when I am locked up inside against my very strong , anti-indoor will."



Tulip , " Did you say stinky goodness ?!"




Tulip , " Nom.Nom.Nom.Nom.Nommmmmmmmmmmmmm."




Tulip , " As I was saying...The Irresistible! Indoors has many advantages..."



Have a Thankful Thursday.
See you soon.

Garden Tours Closed .

Leo, " I know. I have been suspiciously absent from the bloggie since we wrapped up Thursdays in the Garden and I lost my tour guide gig. I was given my termination papers without so much as a second thought or glance for that matter. Although I'm not much of a revenge kind of guy, I have been giving LP the cold shoulder. The VERY cold shoulder. I mean , icicles are dripping off of me."




Leo, " Thing is , I can't keep this indifference up for much longer. I miss plunking my eighteen pound body on LP's lap in the evenings.And I also really miss her chasing me down the hallway when I escape from the cat room. When she catches me she kisses me and calls me her silly, baby boy and carries me back to the cat room , laughing.Cod. I miss that. And every time I refuse a treat that greedy guts Tulip noms it up so what's the use of that? K. I've just convinced myself. This revenge stuff isn't worth it. I'm going  back to being myself. I'll just have to accept that the garden won't be open again for my enjoyment until Spring.I'll give you a tour then.Promise. "





Have a terrific Tuesday.
See you soon.

Mitalee , " ... and I tucked myself in all ready to settle down for a long Autumn nap...





Mitalee , " ...when the "Tiny Dancer" showed up and gave me the BOOT. Yup. She can be like that sometimes..."








Have a Marvelous Monday.

Duffy , " ... becomes My Yummy Dream Pillow. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz."





Have a restful weekend.

Mission: Lampshade aka The One that got away.

Mitalee , " Something flew up into the lampshade."





Mitalee, " We must keep an eye on it at all times."





Mitalee, " Esme, as your older sibling, may I suggest we sit vigilante style until we catch the culprit..."




Mitalee, " ...or not. Mission aborted."

Intruder Grey Cat. Tags read, Luna.

Grey Cat , " Merde! Where is it?"





Grey Cat , " I can smell it."



Grey Cat , " It's over there isn't it?"







Grey Cat , " There it is."


Tulip , " Grey Cat spotted in MY barrel of catnip at the far right hand corner. Can you read me, Leo? Over."



Grey Cat , " Merde, merde! I've been found out. I need to cut and run. Fly the coop. Give them the slip. Blow this popsicle stand. Pronto! How do I get out of here? Getting in was a lot easier than getting out... "

Tulip, " We've entered vector HOME. Leo, initiate offensive action at my command..."






Have a wicked Wednesday.

Edna Laking.

Esme , " I know. Two days in a row on the bloggie. The other critters would be annoyed if they knew. Especially the doggies. Shhhhh. Don't mention it to them if you bump into them. K? They are always complaining as it is that they don't get nearly enough blog time. Dogs are complainers by nature though.But I'm sure I don't need to tell you that! Anyhooo.See the cool cat behind me? Her name is Edna Laking."





Esme , " Edna's a great listener. She's not a complainer either. I can walk all over her and she just sits there and takes it. I like to knead her too. She doesn't mind that either. She's a good sport! Plus...she really understands me. And she follows orders well and never talks back! Do you have a favourite stuffed friend to help you rule your queendom? "






Have a terrific Tuesday.
See you soon.

Manic Monday.

Esme , "Hmmmm. I was just thinking how sad it is that the weekend is over. I was running around , crazy busy as per usual."




Esme , " You know how it is. Doing this , that , and the other. I find Mondays tough to deal with , don't you ? I guess it's back to the hectic work week for me now. "



 Esme , " ZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz."







Have a non-manic Monday!
See you soon.

Friday in a city garden.

LP, " We have a park in Vancouver that is known to look especially pretty and colourful in Autumn. I've taken some pictures of it for your enjoyment but as you can see, the trees have yet to truly change colour. Some are slowly changing colour but all should look far more autumnal in a few weeks."




LP, " You can see some of the city at the height of this park. Can you also see the faint outline of mountains in the background? "



LP, " Were you to part the trees from above like a friendly , visiting giant , you would see...



LP, " ... this part of the garden below with paths to wander amidst flowers and trees."



LP, " With splashes of colour against green leaves...



LP, "...and multiplying colour taunting us with what greater beauty is yet to come."




LP, " A patch of red flowers under a tree still thrives despite summer's end."



LP, " Colour multiplying before our eyes."








LP, " Then I saw colour tucked shyly away in a corner of this large ,varied , meandering garden. It was as if Nature and Humankind had come together to create a common, worthwhile and glorious goal. I almost missed it ."










Have a peaceful weekend.
See you Monday.
