Lovely lovely photos, FC, including some of your excellent self, and even one of Marmers creeping in the undergrowth. I love the birdies on the pampas grass, and the exquisitely small tomatoes. Small is beautiful... this applies to fishies and froglets too, so *leave them alone*!

Incredible !! I am so envious of your many talents FC, that bee on the flower is truly amazing. Your garden resembles Provence or somewhere equally Mediterranean. Wow !!! and may I just add, how educational I find your blogs, those big and unusual words make me reach for the dictionary to find out the meaning, which I think will come in very useful one day when I finally get on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. Splendid Blog !!

any biped who keeps company with a feline soon has their finer sensibilities beaten out of them n'est-ce pas ... ?especially when nothing is left of the baby rabbit save a perfect fluffy ear, and two plump and complete eyes ... always artistically placed so they are looking glassily up at you ... :-)

The idea of my blogs being 'educational' is so deliciously silly, I can't help wanting to hug it to my pulchritudinous furriness... As for the talents, words attrib. Carole King (mostly...) and digicam on automatic, 6.3 megapixies, anything closer than 3" goes all fuzzy...so many pics fall into desuetude...*prrrgrin*

One tomato, and that cat is going to eat it!! Lordy, lordy, the cat probably ate it already. # FC, those tomatoes are hard to slice, I bet. Gulping tomatoes rather than slicing ones, I suspect. # Spuds look alright. How did you cook them?

The spud-cooking was very ordinary - spuds/sweet potato/red onion roasted with olive oil and fresh thyme - but the spuds being there at all was entirely unintentional. Very tenacious things tatties. Leave one and you get several...
Flying Cat from not eating tomatoes
I did remark on the size of the tomatoes, and it contained a bare teaspoon of vitriol (them thar tomatoes would not hold more): but, pouf, gone with the Glaswegian wind. All this is enough to turn one (Hyper-B. anyway) into a Trotskyite-Anarchist (or so I should think). May Vanessa Redgrave bless you all my children.

Didn't see Marmers until I read the comment--very well camouflaged, purrrfect for attacking wee beasties. Beautiful photos, FC. Not having an opposable thumb doesn't seem to hinder you. Is that a rowan tree in the first photo?
thelovelyOutlander from admiring your photos
The opposable thumb is the only area where I will concede superiority to bipeds, but, with purractice and purrseverance , a cat can digicam...That there is a Rowan LO- RA has several from different sources - garden centre, Finstown, fly-by and Hoy. The Hoy rowan is always last to leaf and has neither flowered nor berried in 15 years or more.
Flying Cat from Rolling Acres
That rowan is not pulling its weight in the RA scheme of things! Of course, no flowers, no berries - that's a fact of life, EffCee.

FC, I am thrilled from my head tomatoes. I know what desuetude means now, thanks to Wilkepedia and you, (and I think I am a bit desuetuded)
Squidgy the Otter from Desuetuded
The Hoy Rowan not the only Rowan that's not flowered or flourished. There is another one in Canterbury, if my fading memory serves me right.

Never Squidgy! The very idea of you falling into disuse...Tcha!

In the 2nd picture who are Castro & Rose? And where are they? All I can see is some weeds and a brow beaten c*t. Just an observation from the Mouse Detective. Good Day...

There's no flies on you Tws...as has been said before...
