Pretty! I love the glory of the snow! Tulips are my favorite flower.
There are more tulips coming up now. I'm looking forward to watching them flower. These first ones got a bit frostbitten and nibbled by slugs, I think, so I think the next crop will be stronger.
I see the cat is in a state of shock as he is carried to the mail box or that may be his unfazed stare
To be honest, he's a bit dopey. I think he's just spotted something that moves, which could be me, the camera, an insect, a frog, the other cat...who knows.
There is nothing cuter than kittens playing in the garden.
It's hilarious when they play-fight. One of them will flatten himself in the grass (because a black cat is camouflaged so well by green grass) and then ping up and jump on the other, who was waiting for him. Hours of entertainment.
You should video tape them if you ever get the chance. I find kitten play very funny and cute of course.
How long did it take you to plant that many bulbs?! And what a cool backyard! How big is it and did you create the pond yourselves? How do the kittens like the other animals?
I love that these are such well done photos, and that you put a little bit of artistry in them!
It took a couple of weeks. There were some existing beds that had to be dug over & composted before we could plant, but then there were still so many that we ended up digging more.
It's over 120 feet long, and the pond was there when we bought the place. It needed to be re-lined, though, as the lining had been torn by all the debris falling into it from the surrounding neglected jungle that filled the place.
Also, thank you. I don't have time to be nearly as meticulous as I'd like with my photography, but as I'm trying to archive quite a large project, I have to sacrifice my particularity just to keep the record going.
I really love the photo of the Puschkinia...
Thank you. That's my favourite too. Definitely the most successful composition and the focus is spot-on. That's the most challenging aspect of photography for me, as my eyes don't work properly.
Those pictures are GORGEOUS! Thank you for sharing. I wish I had a yard!
And that cat just gets more stunning with every picture!
Thank you. It's been wonderful, having all this space.
He's a handsome cat, and he knows it too. You should see the shameless purring and weaving to get the gooshy food in the morning.
Yay, Narcissus is the harbinger of spring! I remember the first ones poking their little heads out. Woot.
Yes, there are so many more out now! I have to take more pictures.
