Outside with Vir-ginger

First some pink flowers for LillyLu. She is home and being fed special food. Continuing lots of purrs for her. And for Earth Day, we have gone green! The one thing with new blogger and this template, you can change your colors quickly.
Well it really must be spring. Mum was taking something outside and Vir-ginger managed to slip out the door. Now mum lets her outside, but not me, mainly because she is well behaved and doesn't run off. Unlike me, who the one and only time I got out, headed for the house next door. hehe.

But I do get to go outside if I am inside my porch. Since it was such a nice day today mum put me inside my porch and we spent some time outside together. Mum readed her magazine and I chittered away at all the birdies coming to the feeders. Even a squirrel came around the corner took one look at me and went back where he came from.
So Vir-ginger has been checking things out while mum has been busy doing little things in the yard, like picking up sticks, cutting the last of the old plants down. Mum even gotted the grass eating monster running. Here Vir-ginger is showing the baby lilacs that are slowing starting to open.
Here she is up in the tree. The box has fluffy stuff in it for the birdies so they can have soft stuff for their nests. We had so many birdies singing and coming by the feeders. We even saw Mr Hawk flying up in the sky, looking for some unsuspecting creature to capture for his lunch.
The aloe vera plant that mum thinks was making me sick has ended up on the patio for now. Vir-ginger is sitting next to it, not eating or jumping on it. I think Vir-ginger a a little Miss Goody Four Paws, she never seems to do anything wrong! Me on the other hand, well, lets just say I occasionally get my tail in hot water.
Mum cooked outside, making a nice chicken breast for herself and yes she shared some of it with me. It was furry good.

What a beautiful spring day! It just seemed to be an all around perfect day for you and your Mommy, and even your goody two shoes squillion. hee hee, I like that one. We cooked food on the outside stove yesterday, too. Today we are building the kids their outside wooden play palace. I will sit and watch them while I lay in the grass in a sunny spot.

it is nice to be able to change the colors easily, isn't it? mama changed mine to purple today. nice to have a change. my orange furs look good against a purple background.

you look like you were having a very good time in your porch. would you ask your mom to tell us where she got it? i would like one, and i think there are lots of other kitties who would too!

you might be right about vir-ginger being a bit of suck up. she doesn't get into any trouble at all.

love

And Vir-Ginger always has that sly little smile on her face. Makes you wonder just what she's been up to.
Nice outside time!

Derby, it looks like you had a wonderful Saturday! And what a great idea about the fluffy stuff for your bird friends. I'm going to have to tell my mom about that.

Isn't spring wonderful? It seems that we've gone from winter to summer in just a few short days at our home.

Our sparrows actually pick on the doves so we were happy to see the doves take over for once.

The Crew said...

We think Midnight (Vir-ginger's Squillion sibling) will probably want to be outside now, too.
