Mixed bag of Saturday Critters

This week was rather disrupted with our trip to the neurologist on Monday followed by a visit to the orthopedic surgeon. This man scheduled bilateral Carpal Tunnel surgery on Grant for Tuesday. We returned home and drove back to the city the next morning. To cut a long story short, Grant was operated on at 7pm Tuesday night. He spent the night in hospital and the next morning after breakfast a nurse renewed his dressings and he was discharged. I drove him home...
We stopped next to this strange contraption on Monday morning. Grant said it was part of a gyro copter
On the way home on Monday, we saw the same horses crossing the same overhead bridge!
Back home on Thursday morning, Skabenga and I went for a walk on the golf course. (Eddy was missing at this stage; Ambrose will probably post about it tomorrow)
This delicate little flower (I posted a photo of the bud last week) has finally opened

This grass flower looked so pretty in the rising sun's ray's I bent down low and photographed it
Another small grass stalk with the large trees in the background
Beautiful pink flowers on a many stemmed bush
I could see Skabenga missed Eddy that morning. When I noticed the cattle at their feeding troughs, I took the dog to meet up with his bovine friends

The cattle are fat and sleek. Grant calls the ridges on the animal's back, "happy lines" Make sense...

I'm linking to Saturday Critters with Eileen here


  1. Oh, how fun!! That Scabanga wants to meet everyone -- two and four-legged!! Such fun shots for the day, Jo!!! Thanks for the smiles and giggles -- it's been another GRAY, grumpy, wet day!! I hope all of you are enjoying a great weekend!!!

  3. I am smiling really big, the kiss to the cow and those happy lines and those beeee u ti ful cows just made my day. isn't it wonderful how the little things in life, tiny flowers, sunshine on grass, dogs kissing cows can make us happy?

  5. Hello Jo, I love the pretty flowers and your sweet Skabenga and the cattle. The horses walking over that bridge seems so weird to me. Wonderful post and photos. I am sure you are happy to have Grant home and the procedure done, wishing him a nice recovery time. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!
