7th July 2021 Playing with the macro lens, I made new friends: They were no more cooperative than my larger pals. Japanese Lady Beetle. It is said that meeting one of these is a sign that your creative pursuits will bring prosperity in the future. Also to make use of your vivid imagination. Well then! … Continue reading Wee things
1st July 2021 It's very hard, sometimes, to remember that my furry friends are wild and no matter what I read into their cute facial expressions, they do not share human emotion. Last night I captured a sequence of photographs that amused me but really, you can write your own story. Is it sibling affection? … Continue reading Poor little Petal
1514/30th June 2021 It wasn't what I would call a violent storm yesterday, but it was definitely moist. Very refreshing! I love a good rain storm. You know that saying about the lunatics taking over the asylum? We often used to say that in the office, back when I was a working woman, a hundred … Continue reading Who’s in charge?

Bird's foot trefoil A few days ago Lawn Man turned up suddenly and went whizzing around. I was quite pleased he hadn't come the week before as scheduled, because with the extended dry weather, my so-called lawn had mostly curled up and died. I had been wondering if Lawn Man would come anyway offering the … Continue reading Decimation!
Did I not say, that when rain came, it would be fierce? The storm in these particular photos was tornado-like. When I looked up, there was a big swirl of cloud all around us with a blue bit in the middle. I love to take pictures of storms but when there is lightning, I'm not … Continue reading Stormy weather
Social distancing being observed It looked as though even the birds were observing the rules today, on their chow line. At least they got the message from our Governor, Mr Cuomo, even if him in the White House didn't. It's so embarrassing having him for a president. Fortunately, I have entertainment to distract me... Grant … Continue reading Obeying the rules…or not…
