Flying Things and Dreams of Flying

OK, normally today would be a gardening day with the Society of Feline Gardeners (SOFG), but as we had so much rain and lots of bean visits, Tiny and I weren't able to get out and do some gardening so we will have to share some other pictures with you.

Flying things (butterflies and moths)

I love to watch butterflies and I THINK I would like to catch them and feel them in my mouth, but Mom won't let me. Tiny said she did once - in secret - but that they aren't very tasty.

Then there is this guy...I guess being that he is a moth, he isn't interested in flowers...but hey dude, wood?

That's all I have from our garden, but here are some pictures Mom took recently while on one of her walks in our neighborhood (she wanted to show some of the bean visitors these mushroom-shaped rocks/cliffs that are in the forest). Tiny and I had to stay home.

Dreams of Flying

Maybe it was a good thing we had to stay home since these places look kinda scarey though I have to admit that these rocks could be an excellent place to see if I can fly...I bet if I could climb onto one of them and jump off I would be able to fly above the trees and with the birds and could maybe even go sit on a flower like the little butterflies above do!! Aw, c'mon! Don't laugh! I can't believe I'm the only cat who dreams of flying!

(Note from Mom: Sorry Lautrec honey, but I don't think you would fly...at least not like a bird or butterfly. Perhaps it is best if you only try flying in your dreams - it is waaaay safer there than anywhere else!)

That is in your neighborhood? WHOA! Totally beautiful!

ps: I think the white moth might be a tiny angel faerie!

I've never tried a butterfly. they're very pretty but I think I believe Tiny about them not being tasty. Your neighborhood is so pretty! It's like a wonderland.

Lautrec, I love your dreams about flying but please stay safe, dear friend!

Purrs & Hugs,
Lucy

I agree with your Mom, don't try the flying thing for real. It sure is fun to watch the butterflies flutter by though!

Lautrec, are you sure you haven't been in the Nip a tiny bit much? Although it WOULD be neat to nab a birdy mid-air...

Tiny and Lautrec we did so enjoy your pictures today...Mom found the mushroom rock formation to her liking...and we are very glad you did not go along to test your wings.

Those rock formations are incredible - and the forest is beautiful.

P.S. We agree with your mom - flying in your dreams is the best!

If we CB kitties can teleport then surely we can fly...all we have to do is eat lots of nip and get on our magic flying carpets and....

I'm heading over to join you. Happy flying my furriends.

Keep on dreaming, and let the flying bugs do their job: THEY fly, YOU sleep!

We love the pictures today! That wood moth is pretty cool looking!

And Lautrec we dream of flying too - but we agreew with your mom that it probably is a bad idea to try it in real life!

Such wonderful pictures! And you spotted one of the fairies! That is what we call the white Pterophorus pentadactyla.

Amazing! But not very cat safe we thinks...that moss looks kinds slippery...oops!
