Guarding the Backyard

Koko likes to spend a lot of time outside. Fortunately, I have a nice backyard where she can loll in the sun and protect the world from squirrels - mostly in that order. When it's warm enough, I just leave the back door open and she can come and go as she pleases.
When it's cold/windy/rainy I'll let her outside and close the door behind her. She still wants to check out the backyard, but doesn't necessarily like being in the cold and the rain.Such was the case the other day when these pictures were shot. She's taken to sitting on the back steps so she can survey her rhelm, but the house protects her from the wind. That is until I open the door and let her back in again.

These pictures were taken from my kitchen window and the weirdnesses are reflections from inside. Don't forget to take in the beauty that is the mossy astroturf on the back steps.

I'm going through your post as I've been delinquent. Had to comment on the mossy astro turf. We have a mildewed cedar deck. Ah. Life in Oregon.

(I like Koko btw)
