Leftovers, New Beginnings and Guests!

Yes, we sure wish there were nothing but leftover memories of this horrid COVID19…what a disruption to the whole world:(

So far we are healthy, and there are no peeps at petcretary’s workplace with this illness. Thankfully. But each day the situation changes…we just pray fervently that it will bypass our residents and the city in general. There are some who have it, but we hope with the quarantine regulations that it will not spread too far around. It sure is a scary thing. So we stay mostly at home except for occasional forays to the grocery store, or a walk in the fresh air. But not this weekend…it was damp, raining at times and not very conducive to a nice stroll…however it was a lot nicer today! The sun decided to shine! Yes!!

The other day during the week, it was lovely out, and petcretary grabbed her camera and went to see what she could see.

There were still leftovers from last fall, new beginnings to herald the Springtime…and she even some some obliging creatures who consented to giving their selfies for our viewing pleasure.

Therefore us three will take a break form showing ourselves…afterall it is spring break…hah! Nobody can travel or go to museums or even state parks. So everyone is having a staycation!It is also Palm Sunday, the Sunday before Easter, if you are of the Christian faith…but we have no palms here, and no face to face church services…so we will wave virtual palm branches…oh well, maybe next year!

Here are some leftovers…they are kind of interesting and even pretty!

First, some cat-tails…

Now some grasses…

Old leavers and a milkweed pod…

Here are some goldenrod and Queen Anne’s lace…

Here is an old ‘something’ amongst the newly swelling buds…

These are so pretty, not sure what they may be, maybe leftover snowballs?

This is a big insect discovered after the picture was taken…guess it wanted to have his selfie on the blog!

Here are some leftover berries…bittersweet.

Now we are getting some other things…(Tabbies o’Trout Towne, just skip please…)

Ducks!!
A RedWinged Blackbird on an old cat-tail.
Singing his heart out!
A Cardinal having a break from his spring tunes…

The trees and shrubs both in our yard and along the marshes to the north on our road are beginning to have fat buds where the leaves will soon be, or blossoms.

Dogwood
Weeping Cherry
Lilac
Lilacs
Pussy Willows
A different kind of Pussy Willow
Spring flowers will soon be showing off their beauty everywhere.
Daffodils…not quite ready…

Meanwhile we have these pretty periwinkle and blue bells…and another spring bulb which petcretary has forgotten the name of, LOL!

Grape Hyacinths……

Columbine and bleeding hearts…

Bee Balm

Catnip!!

Now we have some guest selfies to show you:
How about some cows!

And some horses also obliged with their selfies for you to admire:)

There you have them…our nature stroll shared with all of you our friends and its so good that we can not worry about ‘social distancing’ when we blog. Petcretary walked for about a mile north on our road, she could actually follow that road for several more…

Yesterday was Bowie’s First Birthday…(From LoneStarCats), so while petcretary no longer makes birthday cards, she did for Bowie, cause he has not had any card from us yet in his young life. Also he wasn’t feeling too well, so we add not only our birthday greetings, but our purrs, pawyers and POTP.

Bowie

Update:

It seems that whole furmily needs a ton of POTP right now, Bowie, and his brofur Travis, and also his sisfur  Angelique. And poor little Finely the doggy with her bad hip, well she got sick too…and the emergency vet had to help both Bowie and Finley…and prescribed meds for all of them.

OMC, OMD:(

You can visit the kitties here: LoneStarCats

You can visit Finley and her furmily here: KinleyWestie

You kitties and pups…and your peeps who are caring so diligently for all of you: We send you a ton of love, hugs and our most fervent pawyers for a full and speedy recovery.

Pipo and his doggy brofurs will return soon…

Meanwhile Stay home! Stay Safe! Stay Healthy!

  3. Lovely spring pictures, very enjoyable! Happy first birthday to Bowie but so sorry to hear that he and some of his animal friends aren’t feeling so well. We hope they will all feel better soon, and that everyone will stay safe and healthy!

    • Thank you. Glad to report that Bowie and his clan are all feeling much better.

  4. Those were some fine fill-ins for the selfies!
    It’s interesting to see all the things autumn leaves behind….I was just raking some of that up over the last few days! That’s not all that fun, but it was good to be outdoors in the fresh air and sunshine, and Luke came and laid on the grass for the first time this spring (even though it’s still brown grass).

  6. Lulu: “Look at those cat-tails, Charlee and Chaplin! Why do you suppose they call them that? Is that what your tails look like under your fur?”
    Chaplin: “Charlee, do you want to smack her, or should I?”

    • Haha! You are making us giggle…but yes, what are they called Cattails??
