Waiting for the sunshine in the land of green and ginger.



In long green grass and clover we walk, and the grass is wet with rain. A light drizzle falls, little more than a low cloud, not quite rain.




Together we walk up what was once a road, a narrow track where horses pulled carts, the road to Pennsylvania. Many years ago the track led over the hill to a small hamlet clinging to the hillside, no more than a huddle of house. Now it leads to ruins.




At the top of the track we practice climbing and flying, then walk again, past the city of badgers.




The raven family are practicing flying too and todays lesson would seem to be folding back wings and tumbling in the air. The wind today is kinder to them. Their flight is more confident.
On the gate Elmo poses, legs wet from the long grass, bright orange fire cat on a dull day.




On the way home there are foxglove flowers. Soon it will be summer. Soon the sun will shine.

I love your photos.

I told my orange boy that he was a Ginger cat.

He just sniffed me ... he doesn't go outside for walks but he would like too.

Wonderful photos, beautiful landscape and the ginger against the green is perfect. Foxgloves not out here yet so hopefully for cats AND humans summer might be on its way?

I have recently discovered your blog and am in love with your county side, photos, verse(which reads like poetry), adventures and off course, your beautiful, free minded ginger cats. I have shared your site with our two daughters who have cats as well, including one ginger. Buster, I am sure would love to join your troupe. He loves adventures and high places. Thank you for sharing this all with us. Angie

My favorite of these photos is of the three Gingers walking along the path.
Their beautiful orangeness sure brightens up a dark day.
The two cats, Big Boy and Jolie, that run our house and garden are smart, but don't have a blog. They are too busy napping.
Their human mom has a blog tho.

I am thrilled to find you via the blogroll at Creating Pictures in my Mind. I had a Ginger and White Boy named Bleecker who was the love of my life. He's been gone almost two years and I miss him every day in spite of having other new wonderful furry kids.
Your blog will be one of my happy treats. What a beautiful world, words, photos, Ginger ones.

It's so lovely to see these three wandering in the countryside. My ginger boy has to live indoors, in town, but he's very happy today, trilling and bringing me toys. He loves, plants, so I'll grow him catnip and something to roll in .
