the critters in winter

Have I mentioned lately that it's COLD outside?  The 'outdoor' dogs have managed to wheedle themselves into the mudroom by looking pathetic and sad and generally tugging at my heartstrings with their 'sad puppy ' eyes.  The little schemers.


I must say, though, they do seem to enjoy soaking up every last bit of heat.

The cats just generally loll about, and do not even entertain the remotest thought of braving the outdoors.

And when that gets boring, they break into song.  Opera, mostly.

I haven't posted any photos of the horses lately, so here you go.

Just kidding, that's a little bronze Victorian statue.  Quite fetching, no?

Here's Sadie, chowing down.

There's been a lot of chowing down going on around here (by animals and humans alike).  It is patently obvious that I have officially entered the first phase of cabin fever.  You know, the silly phase. This can last quite a while. 

Please send chocolate.

Your critters are so cute.

The 2 year old boy child is the one with cabin fever around here. And an ear infection.

A truly lovely combination.

Chocolate is on it's way.

Yes it is a grape hyacinth, that was the view, from Bootsies level, last year on my deck. There was a primula obconica, a beautiful fresh white, and those lovely muscari. Ah spring......
