    Thank you for the lovely photos! Being a real fool for animals, I especially enjoyed seeing your kittens and dogs, and am envious of your roses! You have a lovely garden in a lovely setting, and have obviously made the most of it.

    Thank you from me!,..if you enjoyed the pets then the most of them are in the following Photo Story,..some shots were non digital,..the big Grey Cat is a Feral Tom,..who looked after the kittens when mom went walkabout.

    Wonderful photo journals :) They all have fantastic pictures of your world, what a lovely green place you live in. It is fun seeing spring and summer this time of year.

    Will have to check back and enjoy them again. Love the story of the feral tom watching out for his kittens.

    Do you have an extra room? I wanna come visit!lol!Tom doesn't look very excited! But cute that he is babysitting. I think it was the pic of the water with the reflections of the clouds that got me the most oh, and the cottage garden. You are so lucky to have such beautiful sights to see everyday and nice furry friends to share them with.

    After I watched the first show, I filled my coffee cup and settled in. I feel like I've gone on a trip. Thank you, Phillip, those were a real treat. I enjoyed each one so much, images and music. I'm now a big fan of Hudson and wish you many more happy years together. She is so dear, always looking to see if you are coming along. Beautiful gardens and scenery too. I love seeing how things look in other places.

    Oh my gosh, bless his heart! He sure is a wild thing, isn't he? Amazing that he let you get so close. Once you spoke to him, he seemed to know you weren't going to hurt him... Then again, maybe not...I just watched it again...

    Great pictures of him. My brown tabby Austin, is the tame version of Wild Thing.

    He's come a long way, Philip. I don't blame you for being cautious though. Cat bites can be really serious. Does he interact with the dogs and domesticated cats?

    Lovely.
    That feral cat sure looks wild. However, you seem to have built up a rapport with her. Good going.
    I too am a sucker for animals.
    16 years is a long time in doggie years. Enjoy every moment of it.
    Your roses look soo healthy. :stew1:

    MaryAnn,
    "Wild Thing" was very good with all of my other cats,..and really looked after all of the kittens,..he never took to the dogs,..he would attack first.

    Palm Tree,
    lol,..another sucker for animals,..people who like gardening tend to love animals,..though the mix of pets and plants can be a disaster.

    Indeed
    Especially if the pets believe they are also doing gardening.
    I got a small Maltese poodle who believes he must protect me from lizards and geckos.
    And a German Shepherd who loves garlic to the point where I simply cannot even grow them anymore since she believes that she must eat them. :)
