Great pics, Truepeers.I should take some shots of Vancouver Island in the Spring. Unfortunately, my camera is currently loaned to a friend of mine...which seems to be adherence to murphy's law.
@ truepeers,Gorgeous pictures. I had forgotten how beautiful nature can be (cooped up as I am in a city dwelling, with silk flowers in the vases - to prevent the cat from toppling over a vase full of water).Vancouver in winter or spring - equally beautiful. You're all very lucky to be there.
Thanks Walker, Tiberge,I'm glad you like them as I am just a snapshooter at heart.Walker, how about some shots of a Garry Oak meadow come summertime?Tiberge, does your cat drink the water? My mother has a cat, a Chartreuse, with a similar vase-tipping habit! But she has a strong instinct to search out water in many places, not that there's any shortage around here.
Garry Oak meadows? The name sounds vaguely familiar, but I'm afraid I don't know where that is. Although I would probably be game for trying to get some pics of it if I were to find out.
Walker,Garry Oaks, a type of Oak tree, are found in several places on southern Vancouver Island, though their acreage is now much diminished with human development.here's a photoI believe there are a few Garry Oak reserves in the Cowichan. See, for example.
Oh, ok! Thanks. When I get my camera back, I'll have to keep an eye out for those in the Summer, and then I can just post any pics onto my blog. Cool.
@ truepeers,Cats often seek out water - faucets, for example, are fascinating to them, especially dripping ones. My cat Gossamer (he's a long-haired gray one, and his fur is very soft), like many of his ilk runs to the toilet every time I flush. It's essential to remember to close the lid - he would gladly jump in.Strangely enough, it's hard to get him to drink adequate quantities of water from his own bowl. Cats are unfathomable, and each one is different.
Tiberge,That's interesting. I wonder if it might have something to do with (domestic) cats' Egyptian (dry, hot) ancestry?
