Fall is in the air...

The orange color stood out against the drab fence.
Thought this small red flower poking out was rather interesting...

Some of the felines around here...

cute cross-eyed cat


I love the idea, which I found on the Internet, to put marbles in water to help the bees stand on them and suck up the water they need.
These bees keep gathering at the Hummingbird feeder.  I even tried using less sugar in the water to discourage them but to no avail...
After this I tried to put sugar water with marbles into another bowl so that the bees would NOT drown while drinking.  Some do go there and others still at the feeder...

Sunrise and sunset


A few years back...

A few years ago I captured this loving picture of my sister, Donna, and her granddaughter hugging her.  I am so glad I caught this because my sister never liked having her picture taken and especially after she had her stroke.  She died last June 13, 2014 and I need all the pictures I can find of her.  Sure miss her a lot.


These are the boots of my partner, Joe.  Used a cross-process filter from Picasa to alter picture.


Smokey with her eye on a bird
What a stare.

Some of the animals in my area

Groups of wild turkeys roam through our neighborhood at different times of the year, bringing their babies when they give birth.  I have never once had a single problem with them and, in fact, have had to make sure others don't try to harm them.

This cat lives on second side of apt. complex.  He or she thought they would sneak up on the wild turkeys and when I snapped this picture took off.  Cute face.

This cat sits on the fence often and checks out what is going on over this way.  The coloring is much the same as what my cat, Timber, had.  Another cute cat.

Our cat, Smokey.  She really does not take well to having pictures taken.
Just one of the many crows hanging around here.  I truly enjoy them.
