So Gail, who is away cycling with friends in the Orkney Islands this week, is fondly imagining that I am safely contained and enjoying the comforts of the Fairways Pet Haven.
Little does she know that I have snuck off on a world tour for this week's Nature Friday.
Then, ascending a steep path, I venture into Bhutan...
...before travelling back in time to a Victorian fernery.
Returning to the present, I find time to explore a Chilean rainforest.
I pause to appreciate the vibrancy of the Chilean firebush,
before pressing on to locate the 'Condor' shelter high in the Andes.
Lastly, closer to home, I enjoy a moment of reflection beside a tranquil pond.
OK, full disclosure time. These photos were in fact taken a week ago in Benmore Botanic Garden, during our visit to YAM-aunty in Dunoon.
But we can still dream of globetrotting again one day...
Wishing all my friends a Happy Nature Friday, and thanking the LLB Gang once again for hosting the blog hop.
