they’re out they want in. Too bad they don’t know how to open the door, oh, or maybe it is a good thing they can’t or they would certainly get caught out in the rain or out at night when the coyotes are out.
In our neck of the woods it is said that “April showers bring May flowers”, but I would venture to say that this year it was April flowers that brought May showers.
Flower sat looking out the window longing for the rain to quit so she could go out into the garden. While Karleen, of course, was out in the garden anyway with camera in hand. The roses were hanging upside down from the weight of the rain water, a perfect photo opportunity. Meantime Goldie had fun playing with a bag in a box.

Hello there, I’m strolling the garden today instead of heading out to the back field. The garden is quickly changing with the spring time and there is something new to explore everyday. The Irises are in full bloom and I spotted the first dragon fly of the season. I’ll leave the dragon fly for Goldie to chase, I’m more in the mood for tree frogs but I haven’t seen any yet. By the way, my people call me “The Cat Dog” because I sometimes act more like a dog than a cat. For instance I like to lie at my people’s feet rather than in their lap. I also act like a sheep dog when it is bedtime, herding my people down the hallway to the bedroom.
I always hear those pheasants out in the field behind our garden. Then I put on my best huntress face and go out to stalk them and they are nowhere to be seen. I hear them in the brush but only catch a quick glimpse of them when they stick their head up for a moment. They are very sneaky, those Pheasants, but I am Flower the huntress and I will find them. Today, as usual, I headed out to the field and Goldie as usual told me I shouldn’t go out there. She tells me that those Pheasants are too big for me. What? No bird is too big for me! Wow, when I got to the other side of the gate today, there was the Pheasant! Not just his head sticking up but the whole Pheasant! Ok, Goldie is right, they are big, but not too big for “Flower the Cat Dog”, but I kept my distance anyway, just to be nice.
So, there I was, posing for a special garden photo, doing my cutest faces and trying to look my best when along comes this hummingbird and steals my spotlight! He flew right in front of the camera and stopped to pose in front of the minneola tree, pretending to be getting nectar from it’s blooms. Yeah right, he didn’t even need any more nectar he just wanted to flaunt himself in front of the camera. He was just jealous that I was getting all the attention. Ok, well, now I’m jealous!
