Happy Earth Day from Da Ozark Mountain Cats

"Reporter Ollie here!First of all, all us kitties and (dumb) woofies would like to wish you a very very happy Earth Day from da Ozarks. We sent da biped out to take a few pikturs of our local flora and fauna. Yaul have a good day now! Weeeze heading to bed."





"Sum people's tink dat da Ozarks are full of hill billies and red necks, but I'd like to inform you dat dose people are all wet! Even da wild critters have an appreciation for fine art."




"Dis is da biped's redbud tree. She's waited four years for it to bloom. Last year it looked like it had pink mange wif spots of pink here and dare. Dis year it looks a lot better. Redbud's are native trees and are da first tree to bloom. The next tree to bloom is da dogwood. We'll have pictures of our dogwoods next week. Right now ours isn't in full bloom."




"According to Princess (Dumb), this is Missouri's state critter. There are a lot of them and they are very friendly. Dey like da biped and Dumb and Dumber a lot."




"Deese cuties hide under our pine trees. Dey are another one of our many spring flowers."




"Deese two pictures are of a native butterfly that likes da biped's Korean lilac. Da lilac is named little Kim and usually gets about three feet tall and has teensy little blooms. Our little Kim didn't read the plastic tag in its can and its now over five feet tall and is covered wif huge bouquets of flowers. If you stick your nose really close to da monitor you can smell the wonderful fragrance."







"We get these cute wild violets twice a year. They are a little bit bashful and only show up after the spring and early fall rains. Like da biped they disapeer when the weather gets warm. Unlike da biped, they are silent and do not complain."

Those are pretty flowers! Mom and Dad were in Missouri last weekend and were really surprised that Spring was not in full bloom. You're lucky to have so many nice colorful flowers.
