Sparks From Mother Nature

 

Where are you Shoko?  SILENCE  Guess, she’s gone outside.

There you are rolling in the flower garden.  Well, ya, the dirt is nice and warm.  You really ought to try it mom.                                                  
Thanks, Shoks but this weeding has to be done. Aww…you really do miss out on the finer things in life cause you have to do silly cwap. The weeds just come back again.

Today is Annie from McGuffy’s Reader’s positive message day. Let’s get some pictures of Mother Nature’s gifts to us, Shoko. I don’t think so, mom. I’m pretty happy here. You won’t screw up the pictures to badly without me so show me your stuff.

Well, here are some tulips that have reached for the sun and are ready to bloom.                                                   

Two weeks ago I took this picture of the tree in the Lane.
Today this is the tree.

Our positive message for Sparks is:

Think positive and have a great week.

I laughed so hard at this meme….it reminded me so much of Kali. Please enjoy.

Some Alone Time In The Garden

What a beautiful day.  Hey mom, are you weeding….good, the garden was a disgrace.  I’ll roll in this freshly weeded area. 

                                                              Oh, that feels so good to feel the dirt rub against my furs.  Mom isn’t looking, is she?  I think I’ll stretch out again. MOL

                                                                    I could do this all day but here comes mom so *mum’s the word.*  No I haven’t been rolling in the dirt,  Who made those rolling marks?  That was Shoko, she came over here rolled in the dirt and then left.  Um…the dirt on my back?  Gee, I think dad threw it at me and it stuck.  I get the feeling you don’t believe me mom. 

                                                                                No way did I need a sponge bath!  How rude of you mom!  I cleaned myself  earlier today.  Although I do look fluffier and there are no more dirty marks all over me bod.

                                                                           Ahhh….that brush feels so good.  Keep it up mom.

                                                                         Don’t tell mom but the brushing almost makes it worthwhile to have a sponge bath….purrrrr                                                                        

 

It’s Spring….Quick, Catch It!

They say Spring has sprung.  Well Spring is struggling to stay out around here,  She keeps hiding and letting a dress of white occupy the backyard.  We don’t even want to see another picture of this dress….months and months we watched nature give us the Winter whites.                                                         snow1zmcrYuck…no more mom!  Bring on the sunshine and flowers.  Come on let’s exam the garden for signs of life.                                                        dadigHey, dad’s digging over my veggie garden.  The ground is no longer frozen.  High five, Kali!!

tulipssmThe tulips are peeking out.  Bad news mom….the weeds seem to be  posing for the picture.  Guess we’ll be out weeding before long.                                                  lilacsm2nd year buds are on the transplanted lilac bush.  Mom’s never seen the bald headed, tattooed man she got it from again.  Someone told mom it takes a good three years for transplanted lilacs to have flowers.  We shall see.

nip1zmLook at the nip buds!!  Dad said he had to re-net the nip….there were layers of cat hair on it.  Dang visitors…..we wouldn’t do that!!

Here is our last sign of Spring in the backyard.                                                               collarzmIt’s my Hawaiian collar that I lost in December!  Now that the snow’s gone, dad found it.  The red suits me…my favourite collar.  I thought it was gone for good.

blackitOh cwap!  Kali’s found a new kitten in the neighbourhood.  She seems to like him.   Another sign of Spring…new kittens in the area.  This guy looks to be 5 months though.  Get away from him Kali….we don’t need anymore visitors!!  Our nip is getting too hairy.                                             shokzmcrA further sign of spring are the puddles but no ice.

There you have it friends, the signs of spring around our place and our first walk of the year in the Lane.

May your week have more nip than medicine.                                               Kali and Shoks
