snow fall

just maybe a white Christmas might happen ...

Mr Darcy takes to the shelter 
(this is tortoise Fred's Summer shed, but now he is hibernating why not share ones abode:)

...  here is Mr Bingley
- but no snow shoes so he isn't touching a single little paw outside!

"Silently, like thoughts that come and go, the snowflakes fall, each one a gem"

Go Slow

Seeing the world through Fred's eyes

... count down to his Winter hibernation

We found out that Mr Bingley has a heart murmur, but it is mild and his big loving heart just keeps on beating (and he gets extra kisses).

Mr Darcy, well... he just hangs out more as the days turn cooler.

softened light

Mr Darcy wishes to know just HOW many plums we harvested this year?


... the Summer flowering keeps on giving ...

Mr Bingley watching the Red Kites overhead (while they watch him)

"... The softened light, the veiling haze
The calm repose of autumn days.."

sleepy head

... "Don't give up on your dreams so soon, sleep longer..."

[Mr Bingley shares advice]

Cat Wisdom

"Those who think they know it all are very annoying to those of us who actually do .."

.. So says Mr Darcy ..

[Cat wisdom - ahem!]

Tortoise Romance

Fred has really come out of his shell this Summer!

He has found romance with a local beauty.
Below is their very first meeting which proved a great success.
She isn't living with us but with a friend nearby; she visits when the weather is fine to 'hang out' with Fred.
