Thursday Stroll in Capitola, CA

Hi friends! We're going strolling today. Not in our garden, which is still pretty much in Winter-mode, but in our little town of Capitola, CA. 

Mom! No kisses now, we are trying to stroll here!

We had about two weeks of very warm weather, and as a result, the plum trees are starting to bloom!

These old fashioned roses are blooming just down the street from our house. 

We have no idea what this is, it looks like some kind of hyacinth. Very pretty! (Do you know what this plant is?)

Here's our beautiful state flower, the California Poppy. We love these. They are everywhere here, they grow like weeds. 

This is the Capitola Wharf, a few blocks from our house. You can see the high clouds starting to form. Rain came in this week and we had an inch of rain in our gauge this morning. We need it!

We hope you enjoyed today's stroll. Don't forget to drop by Jonesie's blog to see what the other Feline Gardeners are up to today. 

Have a furtastic Thursday. Mom, you can start smooching on me now!   xoxo, Busby

  9. Oh Busby...don't you know anytime is smoochie time? :-)

  10. I'd give you a kiss too ... thanks for letting us see what's going on in your area.

  11. We can't wait for our flowers to bloom! You are a few weeks ahead of us for Spring, interesting.

    Busby, you look a tiny bit put out over that kissy!

  12. Buz; your expression is quite priceless. I'm happy that your mum's shared it with us. (Miss Jenga here; as Ms. Stella is on restriction) You are both lovely Mancats and I enjoy visiting your blog!

  13. Those poppies are a beautiful color!

    Busby, I make that same face sometimes!

  14. She comes at me all kissy face, she'll be missing a lip! Naah, I let her kissy-face me once in awhile, but I don't have to LIKE it, do I?

    LOVE the Capitola pix!


Give us a meow, or a purr or a headbutt. No hisses please!
