Good Friday

Miss Jack: "And just where do they think they're going?'  Miss Scrappy: "Leaving us here to starve no doubt."   

That's right girls; me & el are headed out for our walk today; we can't take our kitties but we can take our CBfriends along. 

We try to do 3 or 4 miles but today we will be stopping to take photos so it won't be that long.

I adore Iris; there are an abundance in our neighborhood from folks who've grown them over the years and when the homes change hands it's interesting to see where the errant bulb pops up.  This beauty was all alone in the midst of the ubiquitous day lilies.  (makes we want to do some 'midnight thieving gardening')

This photo doesn't do these lovelies justice.  You can spot this color from blocks away!

This photo was taken looking up into these pretties.  They are called angel bells or some such.  The flowers hang down facing the ground.  But the fragrance is enough to knock you over from 3 houses away! I'm told the hummers will float right up in those long tubes (3 to 4"!) for the nectar.

This guardian kitty overlooks the side yard of a street we walk down where the woman takes the city strip outside their 5ft fence & plants all wildflowers each year.  It's just gorgeous and given that she doesn't have the pleasure of even seeing it from her own windows I think she's the bomb!

The photo I took of the garden wasn't the best; I'll take a better one and post it.   I didn't want to disturb this lovely kitty who didn't move but you could tell if you dared look him/her in the eyes, he would have bolted!

 I loved seeing this leaning up on a  low fence.  It gave el & I a lively discussion concering dreams.  I asked rhetorically if they were referring to the dream you have where you are walking thru the mall naked and el got all hissy and simply clucked her tounge at me.  She attempted to enlighten me that they meant the dreams you have that are more like 'goals'  I just laughed and said; "well, they don't make THAT clear"  to which she replied that "not everyone is so literal minded".  I said "No, they aren't but isn't it more fun to haul those lofty folks off their high and mighty perches once in awhile?"   She didn't answer.  Sometimes I don't think she takes me seriously...

Anyhow; this gorgeous creature is new.
and clearly had no inhibitions to two total strangers stopping  by for chat and some rubbs.  He was such a unique color, dark brownish on top and his entire undercoat is light greys.  His beautiful golden eyes can be seen from quite aways off given his dark mask.  Such a lover with a tiny squeak of a meow.  Heart melting. 

It is a Good Friday indeed!  Got out of work early, got a great walk in and got to visit some lovely kitties along the way! 

Hope your day is wonderful!


  1. Hmmm, does your crew know you are cheating on them with foreign kitties? Shameless hussy.

  2. I cannot imagine living where angel trumpet trees live outside. Love your sense of humor ;D
