Well what do you think is in this big box that came from Robin?
The lilac tissue is SO her :)
WOW!!! Look at the size of this guy! He's tired after flying all the way from San Francisco.
Well, he sort of flew :)
Emma took off like a shot and hid under the pillow!
It could be that she remembers the story about her daddy (Brian) getting attacked by ravens in Bodega Bay at the same place where "The Birds" was filmed. See the schoolhouse? She just KNOWS Alfred Hitchcock sent this damn bird!
It's true, they showed no mercy.
Bliss is a lot tougher than Emma, believe it or not.
Here she is checking him out near one of her beds.
There'd better not be bird poop in there, hairy guy!
Nope. Good thing for you! I'll be watching you though.
But I love him and he apparantly loves our Rhode Island Red Rooster.
Aww, he'll find a place in Em's heart soon. And Bliss will lighten up too.
Meanwhile, guess what I named him?
He's a bit more hairy looking than feathery, probably because he's still young and downish.
Hairy CAWnick Jr. !!
Happy Animal Wednesday, my dear friends.
Thank you Robin! I love him. Can I keep him, huh, can I?
What a wonderful week Robin and I spent together getting to know one another in person. She was a delightful guest! I just took her to the airport where she'll be getting back to her life in San Francisco. Just like when Marianne left, I miss her already.
Here I am photographing her photographing a seagull!
She was fascinated by everything here, even the ordinary.
This photo was taken at Colt State Park in Bristol.
We strolled through the gardens and arboretum at Blithewold and I discovered a pond which I had never seen before. It was fun sharing something new with her.
These koi were coy! They just wanted to stay beneath the surface although the sun was calling them.
We had a wonderful lunch here in Newport.
Most of the shops have water and treats for doggies that pass by!
Lions and griffons on my favorite planter at Blithewold.
And this sweet little Viceroy we saw on the Cliff Walk.
And here's the gang at Coggeshall Farm. One burro, one horse, and an entire family of heirloom cattle. They are massive and gorgeous!
Lilac Robin is scouting for more wildlife.
Looking for shells...
Marco!!! Polo!!!!! Marco??? Lolo????
And so she continues to sleuth along the water's edge.
