Today it was sunny and warmish, and Precious was up for a bit of outdoor exploration. She was not amused when she got her feet wet in a puddle!

Poor Precious - the elements are not her friends at the moment.

What lovely primulas Christinap! Does Precious walk well on her lead spanishLiz? Howie, the trees in your part of England are far more advanced than in our bit of Shropshire!

Here's a photo taken a few years ago in the Greenbay Botanical Gardens. I've been looking through old photos of our trip to USA as we're thinking of going again this year to celebrate our 30 years married.

Most of the time, yes. She'll stride out ahead of me, but doesn't pull. Most of the time she decides where we are going smile Sometimes we are not going anywhere, just sitting and watching the world go by.

I only got Lucy as I used a cat lead for my friend's cat who I was looking after for two weeks and was only happy when he went outside. Unfortunately the pet shop didn't tell me cat leads go under the front legs as well as a neck lead won't stay on, and when Jake wriggled out and wouldn't come in again I had to get a trap and caught Lucy as well who needed a home of her own. She didn't even like a collar and managed to get them all off within days of putting them on till I gave up.

I know everyone can Streetview now but wouldn't know where the more interesting views were, this is a typical road in Highgate.

Lovely pics all so far!
Dot I think Howie took his pictures some time ago when he visited England. He lives in NZ in fact, but is a much travelled guy!

Great photos all around. I especially like the flowers. I've been traveling up north where it's been very cold and snowing every other day. I'm looking forward to seeing some flowers for real very soon.

Here's ClaraSue playing in the snow this afternoon in northern Indiana, where it snowed yesterday and last night about 6 inches. For being an old girl, she does like to play in snow. laugh

Thanks Sara and Liz. She doesn't grin much these days, her arthritis bothers her, but she's always loved the snow and I knew she'd love a romp today.

Yes, I am in New Zealand and these photos were taken in 2010. I do mix them up with recent Timaru ones at times for variety. No, I do not travel much at all even though I want to....lol

hello Precious and ClaraSue!

Everyday I have to go to this tank (what you'd probably call a dam) and start that pump down at the water edge and wait for it to fill up the poly tank. I usually do it early in the morning which is worth it sometimes smile

Precious does look comfortable.

Gorgeous sunrise, Jill! I'd print that off and hang it in my house!

Love that garden art!

And here's the way Alex plays in the snow. laugh The deeper it is, the more fun he has. He buries his head and burrows like a groundhog, and that tail is non-stop wagging.

Love all the photos. Susie does that in snow as well, then she sort of scuttles along on her stomach, brings her head up and throws it everywhere.

Here's one of the paths I discovered when my grandparents moved to Mill Hill in 1975 and I got to know the area walking around.

On the way out of Stratford-upon-Avon we stopped at Anne Hathaway's cottage. When checking to see how much it cost to look around insided we were shocked...it cost more than an arm and a leg. Needless to say we declined and caried on to Blackburn, my friend had to then turn around and head back to Leicester.
