A Question.

 Levon , " The sun has come out after a day's downpour of rain!"

 Levon , "The sun brought a present with it. Can you see part of it at the base of my left ear? It's blue. "

 Levon , " Blue, and all the colours in a rainbow! That is correct.The sun brought an incandescent and resplendent rainbow with it! "

 Levon . "I have a question. Is there a pot of (cat) treats at the end of a rainbow ?"

Levon , " I'll have to dream on that. . . "

Have a Marvelous Monday!
See you soon.

 Mitalee , " The dahlias are now blooming ."
 Mitalee , " As are these woodland flowers."

 Mitalee , " Some of the flowers we put in pots are still in bloom."

 Mitalee , " This flower makes me smile it is so cheerful!"

 Mitalee , " Our potted succulents are still thriving."

 Mitalee , " Here is an aerial view of our potted succulents.Our wish is that you make it through the cold winter months , sweet succulents!"

Malou , " Srsly?!!"

 Malou , " How rude! So I did what any self respecting cat would do after being insulted. I licked my private parts in front of her!"

Bird Politics with Leo.

 Leo , " It rained for days and days when this afternoon without warning, the clouds parted and the sun came for a visit. I screeched until LP let me out onto my balcony."

 Leo , " I immediately gave my full attention to my winged guests."

 Leo , " The pine siskins are back!"

 Leo , " It wasn't long before Pine Siskin was joined by a friend."

 Leo , " But it seemed that three was a crowd!"

Leo , " Later in the afternoon, my guests returned."

 Leo , " This time they came as a pair."

 Leo , " Number three also returned but once again was scolded away."


 Leo , " But two birdies now flew away instead of just one , leaving a solitary pine siskin at the feeder."

Leo , " It would appear that bird politics are even more complex than cat politics , kitties! I hope you enjoyed seeing the birdies. Next time I'll invite them onto my balcony for lunch. They would like that. Wouldn't they?"

Have a Terrific Tuesday!
See you soon.

A Rainy Day Activity.

 Esme , " I am about to engage in a rainy day activity!"

 Esme , " The flannel pillow below my chin has been stuffed with a hairy aromatic perennial."

 Esme , " I am nestled in my polka dots lounger feigning indifference to it."

Esme , " But this flannel pillow contains an aromatic oil which as you know , strongly attracts me."

Esme , " As soon as the pawparazzi disappears , I will begin my attack on the catnip pillow!! It is a rainy day activity which I enjoy like no other! "

Have a Marvelous Monday!
See you soon.
