Monday, the eyes have it

Oliver has the most beautiful eyes.
This photo does not even show the depth of wonder in his eyes.


What I love about iwinstons eyes is the hair around his deep brown eyes.
Only the tips of the hair are frosted white.

We had a special didner out at Ginza  Izakaya 

Yuzu Hamachi

So good !

Uni and Quail Egg Shooter

Then we shared some Izakaya.
Ebi Shishito (shrimp with Japanese peppers) Ika Geso (fried calamari) Baby Octopus

Javelina footie prints !

Baby cactus grown from seeds that dropped from the pods.

This one looks like a bunny.


More little cactus.

.........

And just because I can here is your Monday pretty.
 More cactus !

  1. Wonderful close up pictures here. Oliver's eyes are indeed amazing, luckily cats don't mind you looking in their eyes, and it's something I always like to do.

  2. Hi, Gayle!

    This is a marvelous assortment of pictures, dear friend! Would you say that Merida's eyes are as beautiful as Oliver's? That dinner looks delicious! I already told Mrs. Shady about one of your recipes and I will also show her these pictures of the Japanese cuisine at Ginza Izakaya which includes shrimp with Japanese peppers and Baby Octopus, a very exciting dining experience, I'm sure! It's wonderful to see how easily your prickly pear propagate in their natural desert setting. I had great difficulty growing mine indoors in a container. The cactus in that last picture looks like a sand crab! :)

    Have a wonderful week, dear friend Gayle!

  5. From the point of view of the javelinas, it's their yard.

    1. Yes and I try to take care of them without interfering with nature.
      I just saved 4 quail chicks no bigger than about half of your thumb.

  6. Just what do javelinas eat. Doesn't look like much around to scrounge. Does Winston like them coming around?

  7. So beautiful...the eyes and the yard photos! How I wish I could have one of those wee prickly pears but they would have a very short shelf life up here in NH. Got down to 38 degrees last night! X
