Truly a subtropical paradise, Tresco Abbey Garden is brimming with plants that would stand no chance at all just 30 miles away on the Cornish mainland.The beautiful garden, built in the 19th century around the ruins of a Benedictine Abbey, is home to species from across the world’s Mediterranean climate zones, from Brazil to New Zealand and Burma to South Africa. The care given to Bella and Ash by the staff at Hotel Balto is first class.Bella and Ash have stayed at Hotel Balto 6 times over the course of the last two years from as short as 1 night to 14 nights and when we pick them up, they are healthy and not stressed which is very important to us.Une visite des lieux m’a convaincu, car c'était très bien aménagé et j’étais en confiance que le personnel prendrait bien soin de mes chats pendant mon absence.Au début, pendant 1 à 2 semaines, ils étaient dans le loft pour chats en bas, mais dès que la suite royale s’est libérée, ils ont pu en profiter jusqu’à la fin de leur séjour de 40 jours.Je pouvais les observer avec la webcam en me connectant sur une passerelle internet.À la fin, quand j’étais enfin prêt à les accueillir à Calgary, j’ai réservé pour eux un vol en « cargo live » et une employée de l’hôtel est allée les porter le matin à l’aéroport Dorval. Donc, un gros merci à l’hôtel Balto, d’avoir pris grand soin de mes petites Biscotte et Aglaé pendant mon changement de province!
That’s why this grumpy cat meme costume is both ironic and brilliant. We liked that he had gone to a lot of effort and come up with a costume that is a little bit, well, rubbish. They will love you forever especially if their Halloween costume involves intricate makeup that is not waterproof. Cat lady Something you may or may not be aware of is that every lady you will ever meet secretly wants to become a cat lady (not cat woman in a shiny cat suit). Every Halloween party has a man in a dress or a woman dressed as spiderman or something… It has the added benefit of allowing you to be condescending to anyone who asks you to explain your costume…just be sure you know who they are dressed up as before you roll your eyes or tut at their ignorance. Of the three urchins known as wana, the longest-spined species, (rough-spined) are found on reef flats and occasionally in tidepools.Â These species may reach six inches in diameter.Â Â In younger specimens, the primary spines often appear banded with alternating dark green and white, spines of older urchins appear more bluish-black.Â Wana, like other urchins are most active at night, crawling over the reef framework as they scrape filamentous algae from the rocks and reef with a jaw made of five teeth.Â Their nocturnal habits may be an adaptation to avoid day-time predators like the triggerfishes which are known to sometimes feed on even the long-spined urchins.Here off the coast of Cornwall, Spring comes early, autumn stays late and winter hardly exists at all.Halloween is almost upon us and at The Bowgie Inn, Crantock, we love a costume. It also requires much more effort which earns extra points from us. In recent years there has been a surge in creativity meaning we see more than just a witch an Herman Munster.
