Meet my latest self-indulgence.  Got it essentially for the price of just the pot, and I couldn’t resist.

The first rose blossom of the year.  I had no idea I had a lavender rose.  AND it smells just as a lavender rose should smell.  Hard to find a rose that smells like a rose in nurseries these days.  So much for Shakespeare. Continue Reading »

Took this a bit over a year ago.  Reminds me of a face.

Both cats actually like having their tummy petted.  This one purred while I combed and petted.  Calmest cats I’ve ever had.

Photo a day 2

Every camera I’ve owned has a terrible time taking close-ups of flowers, including the one in the new phone.  Either they won’t focus on the bloom, insisting on focusing on whatever dark color is available (leaves, ground), or don’t capture anything close to the true color (especially red), or both.

Anyway, after many attempts and some editing, here are a couple of decent ones of my rhodies that are currently blooming their hearts out.

Photo a day 1

There are half a dozen or more blog posts I’d really like to do, but they will each take an hour or more of work, so I end up doing none of them.  So I’ve decided that for a time, I’ll post a picture a day (inspired in part by retireediary, a real photographer, whose pictures I’ve been enjoying very much).

Here’s yesterday’s picture (heh–cheating already):

Took that one out at the coast (duh) while on the latest camping-with-cats expedition, one of the posts I’m not writing.

We’ll see how long I keep this up.
