Off to The Rock

Thursday, July 06, 2006

The wildlife around here like to taunt my two cats, as you will have seen from yesterday's post. Here is one of the many squirrels, close up and then look out the window in the next photo, there he is: "na na na na na na" at the cat.
I am leaving tomorrow to go here. This will hopefully be my last work-related trip this year. I will tell you all about it when I return, but in the meantime, here are some more pictures that I took today...I will be back early next week.

    Have a safe trip Cathy..Hopefully this will be the last.

    Beautiful photos..The last one is a stunner.

    Squirrels are smart little suckers..aren't they ?..lol

  1. Blogger Michelle said:

    Wow, that last photo has stunning colour...beautiful :o)

  1. Blogger fb said:

    You have animals that are poseurs! Or a really good telephoto lens...which is it?

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Heidi and Michelle; Thank you and I'll be back soon :)

    fb; I zoomed in, but only from about a metre and a half away. They are poseurs! Have a great weekend, mate.

  1. Blogger Meow said:

    Those photos, as usual, area amazing. I love the little squirrel ... cheeky thing, taunting the kitty !!
    Have a safe trip, looks like an interesting place you are going to ... photo opportunities ???
    Take care, Meow

    The problem for the squirrels etc taunting your cats is that they have to be right each and every time. The cats only have to be right once.

    The flowers are very attractive. Our geraniums and foxgloves are done for the year - guess it's cooler up your way. Happy travels.

    Hi Cathy, Just wandered over from Michelle's blog. We have some identical foxgloves in our yard. Read your profile. I watch the Vancouver TV station fairly often, travel to Vancouver now and then. (Love the Punjabi Market and Yorktown Brewery), and watch the CBC during the Olympics. Sorry, but I swear I am always hearing "aboot". I have a couple of Canada related stories on my blog.

  1. Blogger Connie and Rob said:

    Squirrels are quite the little trouble makers at my house for sure.

    Love your flowers!!

    Hope you have a safe trip. Take good care of yourself.

  1. Blogger blackcrag said:

    Cathy, Cathy, quite contrary, how does your garden grow?
    With cat-free zones and squirrel bones, all in a row.

    Take care and have a safe trip. I like your garden.

  1. Blogger Devil Mood said:

    Oh I wish I squirrels here...but there's no such thing!
    I hope you enjoy your trip - corner brook seems like a nice corner ;)

  1. Blogger Pat Paulk said:

    Cathy, beautiful photos!! Have some fun while you're gone!!

  1. Blogger Berlinbound said:

    Safe travels ...

    Beautiful Foxgloves ...

    All good things your way ...

  1. Blogger Christopher said:

    Wow, those are some swish pictures!

  1. Blogger Steve Awesome said:

    wow a proper cat. The cats here are scrawny little things. Mind you the biggest dog I have seen is only ankle high. I think they are fashion accessories more than pets

  1. Blogger Chloe said:

    have a safe trip, corner brook looks nice. sorry i missed you yesterday so as to say goodbye. xxx

  1. Blogger Steve Awesome said:

    like an idiot I have deleted my blog. i must have clicked the wrong button (all instructions are in Korean). when ?i get something sorted I will let you know

  1. Blogger Stephanie said:

    Have fun on the rock. I have no doubt that the hospitality will be warm. :)

  1. Blogger SkyeBlue2U said:

    Beautiful , just beautiful! Have a good trip. :)

  1. Blogger erikku said:

    Is that your garden? Very beautiful!

  1. Blogger Hliza said:

    Hi Cathy,

    I just happened to find your blog all the way from Michelle's. Found it interesting with lots of nice photos and funny animals too. Enjoyed reading your stories..
    Have a nice trip..

  1. Blogger metro mama said:

    Great pics. Have a good trip!

  1. Blogger vani said:

    Great pics as usual! See you when you get back. :)

  1. Blogger Stephanie said:

    Poor kitties! Though for indoor cats I often wonder if they're even know what to do if they got to chase the wildlife. They'd probably still be outsmarted.

    Are those flowers in your own garden? I'm always impressed by gardeners because I am horrible with all living plants. My plant collection always looks like the critical care ward.

    Have a safe trip!

  1. Blogger DayByDay4-2Day said:

    Are those Foxgloves???
    If so I planted them this year and they are not growing. Any tips? Like do they have to mature???

  1. Blogger Ben Heller said:

    Cool pics Cathy. Those foxgloves are beautiful.

    I love how Squirrels seem to tease household pets. The ones in my garden do all the time.

  1. Blogger Amy said:

    Hey, check this out - the piccie of the squirrel made me think - today, while visiting my mom, we looked out the window to see 10 - yes 10 - of those little rascally things eating birdseed! They were chowing down, big time... ha!

  1. Blogger missy said:

    You take such beautiful and well-composed photos, Cathy.

    Have a good trip, we look forward to hearing about it!

    My last conference was on intercultural understanding and global perspective. It was really good!

    Have fun!
