Flora and Fauna

I visited my neighbour Diana yesterday and took some pics in her garden. Though not the clearest of photos - bit of camera shake going on there - I think you can proabably see what this beautiful plant is is well enough.

Did you identify it? It's a pineapple flower!

And this is Diana's cat, Mr Tumnus, getting his exercise on the trampoline !

Apoligies again to my blogging friends for not visiting much - I've had my daughter Julie staying for a while and haven't had much time for blogging! Hopefully, I'll get around to you all soon again. Also, I am beginning to get back into the studio, so I hope I will have more arty stuff to share soon!


  1. Mr. Tumnus- what a beauty he is! He deserves his own post and his own trampoline!The flower is curious and beautiful but Mr. Tumnus - He is all that and more!

  2. The flower looks like a bromiliad to me. Probably related?
    I love the tabby kitty :) Cool name, too!

    Visit when you can. There's never pressure between friends.♥

  3. Wow, that IS a gorgeous flower!

    Hahahaha, tumbling kitty. :D

    Enjoy time with your lovely daughter!

  4. the matching colors of Mr Tumnus and the trapoline made me smile. who could plan that? :)

    i haven't done my good share of visiting our blog friends either, caroline. but when i do, and when see your avatar at my blog, it's all so good. i hope you and julie have had a great time together, and i can't wait to see what you'll paint next.

    with love, friend

  5. It's been too long since I've been here, Caroline! I apologize!! I've missed some beautiful images and posts..I am always amazed at the beauty that surrounds you..thank you for sharing them with us!!

  6. Have a nice time with your daughter!
    Beautiful mandala like plant and that cat is cute. did he jump on the trampoline? That would have been fun:)

    have a nice weekend!

  7. Thanks Caroline. So proud. A Mr Tumnus fan club! I am amazed.Thank you again. It has bee said that he is a trifle tubby. He jumps on the trampoline to avoid the dog who sometimes wants to play a little too vigourously. Being black I think he enjoys the heat. It's rather a large bed for one cat though. Will check out the botany of the pineapple.Thanks so much for being wonderful and rescueing me.x


Thank you for passing by. I love to read your comments!
