Bored Out of Her Mind

Autumn – Poolesville, Maryland

This is Autumn, one of our two Maine Coon cats, looking like she’s just completely bored out of her mind. She loves to play fetch with little dragonfly toys that we heave all over the house just for her. To hear her side of the story, she’s the most abused little kitty to ever live… the most starved… the least paid-attention-to… the absolutely most neglected… the most ill-treated thing in all of existence. But that’s just so we feel totally obligated to lavish everything on this spoiled kitty, our feline overlord.

Wishing for the Cold

Ennis Lake – Ennis, Montana

It’s in the sweltering dog days of the summer months – after weeks of stifling unrelenting heat – that I begin longing for the colder months. I know summer-loving people think I’m nuts – but I totally live for the brisk air, crisp sounds, crystal clear horizons, and clean scents that appear once the longer nights chase out the heat. Some people favor the warmer colors of summer; I just happen to favor the cooler colors of winter – like the blues in this image.

Gorgeous & Aromatic

Tiger lily (Lilium) – Poolesville, Maryland

This gorgeous bloom is currently in our side yard, putting all of the other flowers to shame and wafting the most amazing scent all around. It’s some form of Tiger Lily (Lilium), but I can’t track down the exact type because there are just so many of them. It came in a flower display of some sort that we enjoyed, then Cindy planted it outside, where it is definitely thriving.
