Its now one week that Fluffy/Poes-Poes lives in my house.
As the cat always runs away to this area, (neighbourhood)
The owners finally asked me If I wanted the cat
not understanding why, the cat seems to want to live in this area.

We agreed to give it a try.
Fluff/Poespoes is here now for a week,
and he seems to feel very much at home.
Poespoes/Fluffy has a very mind of his own, so I know that he can run away again.
But it's worth to give it a try.

Mole 14

continuing story Mole

Mole was quite surprised,
very, very much surprised, to be honest.
First he did not know what to do.
He stared at the birds with wide eyes,
meanwhile his brains were thinking topspeed.
What is come?

It must be the eggs...
hatching...into 2 birds!
Mole sat down, he took the birds on his lap, to quiet them.
and to calm down himself as well.

Mole 13

Mole opened the door a little more,
then stepped backwards...quite astonished

2 white babybirds were standing in the door,
meanwhile loudly screaming for food
as if they expected their beaks were to be filled right away.

Mole arose to his feet.
He opened his door a little,
because he noticed that the sound came from inside the house.

He looked curiously inside,
to see to whom the squeaky sounds belonged.

Ladybird making a U-turn,
when he noticed that he reached a dead end 'street'.

I love the way he manages to walk on such a small blade of grass,
with his tiny acrobatic legs, without falling off.

Swallowtail visit

Today a rainy day was expected, as we were told by the weatherman.
Unexpectedly a became beautiful sunny day.
Lots of sunshine.
To my amazement I saw the Swallowtailbutterfly
(Papilion Machaon) (Koninginnepage) flying again in my garden.
hiphopping from one flower to another.
Such a surprise!
Also because this summer is not a very warm summer.
Swallowtails like warm temperatures and live mostly in the more warmer southern parts of Europe.

Sometimes You see plants in your garden, you did not plant.
Somehow they did manage to grow up without you ever noticing they are there.
Untill they are in bloom.

Somehow they have beauty of their own.
If you look at them with a fresh look.

When Mole arrived home,
he stored all his yummy things in his house.

Then he sat down in front of his house, next to the door.
He had become very tired carrying this heavy bag full of shoppings.

Soon after he had finished his coffee, he fell asleep

Speckled wood

I saw a butterlfy landing on one of my birds.
He sat there for a while, as if he wanted to take a break.
I do not see him often, so I grabbed my camera.
It is a Speckled wood, (Pararge aegeria), Bont zandoogje.

Than he saw Hedgehog passing by,
he was slowly walking,
carefully carrying a red egg.
Holding the egg with wide distance in both hands,

The poppies I had sown in spring, are now full in bloom.
Sitting on the gardenbench among them,
my eyes drinking in the intense fragile reds and orange.
The sun and wind playing around, making them dance in the light and shadows.
Its of a mesmerizing beauty.

Even the hundreds of bees flying, hoovering, are enchanted, feasting on the nectar.
I could not choose which one to pick...
such an awesome beauty just on my doorstep.

Ragged wings

Lots of butterflies are fluttering from one delight to another,
because I have lots of plants in my garden butterflies are fond of.

One visitor had probably had an accident.
His wings were quite ragged on both ends.
Maybe he escaped a birds attack for nearly being a snack.

Blue-Fluff (Poespoes)

There he was again, in my garden.
The greyblue fluffy cat.

Blue fluff as I named him, listens to the name of Poespoes.
As I found out some months ago.
He had been here before.
more than once.
Poespoes is a runawaycat.
He lives in a nearby village, and he seems to like my village.
which is about 2, 3 kilometers from the place where he lives.
he is roaming around in the area.

As I know now where he lives, and that he is a runawaycat,
I tried to tempt him to come.
First he ran away, but then some moments later,
I heard a highpitched whining Mjiiieuw, mjiiieeuw,
as if he was happy with the attention.
As he is a very nice cat, he came to me, I could pick him up and bring him inside the house.
When I came in, Bibi slipped out.
That made it even easier, no confrontation and hissing sounds or whatsoever.

I gave Poespoes some of Bibi's food which he eagerly swallowed.
I could tell he was very hungry.
Within seconds the food was all gone.

Meanwhile I phoned his owner.
As she came, she was so happy to have him back!
He had been away for 3 weeks!
Such a lovely cat, with a very mind of his own.

A bumble is enjoying the nectar of the Verbena's
Its funny to see how he makes the transfer from one flower to another one.
