Tuesday Dooze – In the Daisies

I just can’t help but picture Tiny Tim singing “Tiptoe Through the Tulips” when I look at this picture — Koda, on the other hand, takes these things far too seriously.  Geez, can’t even take a joke…

Basking on the deck amongst my herbs and tomato pots,taking advantage of the sun`s brief appearance over the weekend.


Tuesday Dooze – Trouble

About 10 seconds after Koda scared the *^@% out of a Great Blue Heron who was waiting out low tide on one leg — until our little bugger precious darling snuck up from behind.

Howard, a great lover of birds, simply will not permit this kind of primitive behaviour.

Unfortunately, he can’t run fast enough to prevent it.

Tuesday Dooze – Linked

We may live on an island, but that doesn’t guarantee sandy beaches.

Not that we’re complaining — he’s content to turn over every rock on every beach in his perpetual hunt for crabs, while I focus my gaze on the rocky path ahead and absorb the silence between the calls of the birds and the waves against the shore.

Walking side by side, each taking our own path.

And somehow, we always end up back at the car at the same time.

Koda (aka Douglas Doozley) had a bit of a fixation with the woodpile in the shed this past winter.  More specifically, his focus was on the nest of mice under that pile.  Now that winter is over and the wood is gone, so are the mice, and so is the Dooze`s fascination with the shed.

Only to be replaced by cargo ship chasing — no more slow ambles along the shore for this family.

Now if that doesn’t make you smile, then you really are one tough nut.

Tuesday Dooze – On the Deck

koda`s eye

My constant companion…he chased bugs while I transplanted some broccoli and cauliflower seedlings — thoughtful spring gifts from our neighbour.

The seedlings went into pots on the deck.  After several years of keeping a sizable kitchen garden, I’ve decided to throw in the towel.  I can’t fight the towering cedars that surround our backyard anymore —  roots that invade and consume.  Raised beds are the only solution (and they certainly aren’t going to happen this year).
