Saturday's Critters



Hello friends, I hope all of you are well this fine weekend.


We were expecting rain in Vancouver but it turned out to be a pleasant day with intermittent sunshine.  It allowed me to get a wee bit of work done in the garden. I planted some cabbage, beets and lettuce. 


The other day I planted several types of flowers and managed to put some pansies into containers, as well as some geraniums and a few pots of herbs.

I still have a few more spaces I can plant so hope to do that next week as we are expecting rain now for the next few days.


This is one of many baboons I photographed in Lake Nakuru National Park. In another post I will show more of them.

Baboons are fun creatures to observe and you can spend hours watching them. I especially love it when I see a baby baboon with it's mother.



These goats slowed down our progress on the highway between Nakuru and Marigat in Kenya.

Goats are common creatures in Kenya.  Many people raise them in place of cattle or in addition to cattle.


I've always enjoyed observing goats too, especially the baby goats (kids).

  10. Hi Joyful, What a great smile you gave me when I saw this link up with Saturday Critters. Now just tell me ... How many people can post their photos of baboons in Africa? :-) I like this "Saturday Critters" meme. I want to add John's Island to this but I'm going to have to work on getting together a worthy post ... So, gonna be on the lookout for Critters! Thanks, as always, for sharing your photos.

  13. Fun shots of the baboon and goats. The goat keepers here seem to have to give them quite a few vaccines and have disease problems, I wonder what care the African goat keepers give.
