we were wonderfully surprised this spring when these blue flowers started popping up, congregating mostly around the base of the big french walnut tree, but making appearances all over the place, probably thanks to the many squirrels that dig up the bulbs and tuck them away somewhere else.
blue is such an unusual colour in flowers, and to have this mass just coming up is just great. i hope that the lawn mowers don't come anytime soon.
and here are the cats, sitting in the morning sun and watching the juncos and nuthatches. i'm weary of letting them out like we did in halifax, as there is a large family of raccoons as well as all those squirrels [we didn't have squirrels like these in nova scotia, they were more like this, tiny little guys]. so when its nice in the morning i'll put a pair of stools in front of the door and let them pine away. the flat is quite old, and has wonderful details like fancy latched wooden screen doors and porcelain and brass door knobs.
did you see the rabbit in the first picture? we also have rabbits in the yard. i've been trying to get a photo for a while now.
