Can I turtle, yet?

Oh, man, I did NOT want to go out today! Yes, we were a lot warmer than yesterday. Technically, it was -10C/14F when I went out to feed the critters.

The good, the bad, the “someone just shoot me now”

What a day. What a long day that started really well... I had a very enthusiastic crowd waiting for me this morning. Including the new edition.

There is only one adult cat in the kibble house in the above photo, plus Rosencrantz and her two are at their private dining area under the shrine. All three litters of kittens were … Continue reading Our 2021 garden; more firsts – and SO many kittens!

Double rainbow, and will it survive?

Yesterday evening, we found ourselves having another wonderful, solid rainfall! Enough to kick out our internet, but it was well worth it. Then, even as it was still raining above us, the setting sun lit up the more gorgeous rainbows. This is how it looked from the inner yard, beautifully framed by trees. But we … Continue reading Double rainbow, and will it survive?
