I irrigated on Thursday. A gopher hole created an unwanted lake that was draining water that the plants needed. After 30 minutes of trying to plug the hole where it was flowing out of the ground, which I knew wouldn’t work, I finally found two holes that were the source and plugged them. Not before getting a significant-sized lake. The whole thing reminded me of how the Salton Sea was created.
Loki was practicing his cat tree ballet.

Loki is adorable. You live amongst the most beautiful things, it’s a paradise.
We have a bit of an oasis in the dryness of our high desert. Thanks, Holly.
Beautiful flowers! I agree with Holly, you live in such a beautiful place.!
Another great post, Tim! An arty dancing cat, beautiful flowers and a video with a song from an interesting obscure musician…
Thanks, Herman. How’s Jimi liking that new Strat?
It looks like he prefers chasing sparrows in the garden… Guess I have to pick up my guitar skills again…
Loki’s dancing moves are realy artistic. You did a good job reparing the water leek, If not, Amerika would have had a new swamp 🙂
Fortunately, I plugged the hole. While we need water badly, we don’t need swamps. Thanks, Rudi.
Tim, beautiful flowers and Loki. The sunset sky makes up for the Gopher hole trouble. Happy Sunday! 📚🎶 Christine
AND you took photos too as well as going to Wowlmart
That I did. Thanks, Shey.
How to turn irrigation to fun!!!! Love the Salton Sea! …and Loki, and the elegant blooms and that painting your inspired painter provided. Happy Special Sunday! 🍾🥂🌟
Pluging the hole was no fun at all. But what do you do if you can’t plug the hole? Make a video. Loki was having a good time. Thanks, Marina.
I’m glad you did!
The flower photos are stunning! Loki looks like one happy cat.
Loki is happy. Thanks, Liz.
You’re welcome, Tim.
Musical how to videos are the best. Informative and entertaining! Love the guitar and vocals in this video.
Looking at the series of Loki, I had “do the Loki-motion” in my head.
Irises are my favorite flower – that photo is stunning!
The song turned out excellent with the collaboration. I did a Loki-Motion post last year: https://wp.me/p1yQyy-6P7. No music, just Loki motioning and lyrics. Our irises are struggling with the drought, but they are managing to produce some beauties. Thanks, JYP.
Yup, I remembered the Loki-motion post!
I should put it to music at some point.
Loki shines again as usual. Those pesky gophers. Interesting video Tim and beautiful images of your flowers.
Thanks, Maj & Sher. The owls need to catch a lot more gophers.
Now that’s funny.
That is some sea that little gopher created! I have seen here during long hard rains that drop a lot of water quickly on already saturated ground, gopher holes can spout water like mini artesian wells. I enjoyed your video, Tim, and Loki, flowers and sunset.
Their holes are good siphons. Pesky little things. Thanks, Lavinia.
That white neon iris is amazing, Timothy. I enjoyed your video, an interesting event to watch.
Thanks, Roberta. I’m happy you found it interesting.
Love your video and song Tim and clever idea.. I kept waiting for the gopher to run out!
Glad Loki loves her new tree! 💖👏
Thanks, Cindy. I didn’t see the gopher. It would have made the video if I had.
You’re welcome! I figured as much! 😎
Loki was certainly trying some contortion moves.. And that looked like a major leak.. Lol.. Love that sky.
He’s a real Loki-motion kitty. Thanks, Sue.
Sandy: Carl I want you to kill ll the gophers on Tim’s land
Carl: Correct me if I’m wrong Sandy, but if I kill all the golfers they’ll lock me up and throw away the key.
Sandy: Not golfers,, you great fool, Gophers. The little brown furry rodents
Carl: We can do that. We don’t even need a reason much less one that caused the unwanted lake.
Hahahaha! People with mix them and call them “golphers”. The owls need to work a little harder at catching gophers. Thanks, Brian.
Glad you got that under control!
I’m loving all your flowers in bloom, gorgeous! Damn gophers, they sure can wreak havoc!
Gophers are damn dam deniers. Thanks, Tiffany.
I had to steal the Iris! I’m quite torn about painting the Iris in the gown. I was convinced to go with purple and lavender…. until I saw the one here. Sigh!
Loki is silly. So many colors to choose from. Thanks, Resa.
Wow those flowers are super! Loki looks gorgeous taking centre stage ..
Your sweet cat reminds me of my Ollie that died about 7 years ago, he was the sweetest cat I have ever known. He died in his sleep with his arms folded like he always went to sleep. I miss him.
Thanks, Joni. That’s the best way for a cat to go.
It sure is Tim. 🦋
