'Dismayed' may be too strong a word. I had to push myself to make this shot. The rose was perfect but what to do about a background? The bloom is so small that it would be lost with a busy b/g. Find a white board and prop it up. I almost shrugged it off.

Once upon a time, my guest bedroom was set up as a studio; lights, tables, backgrounds. It was always ready for a still life (or feline) shot. The, I took it all down and packed it all away. 

Anyway, it was not a huge effort to set up the shot... but the spirit was lacking.

Time Flies

It's been so long, I was determined to post something (ANYTHING) today.

It feels like summer is flying by and the days are hot and humid. Sofia has been diagnosed with an overactive thyroid and so we've been busy treating  that. She has lost a lot of weight and at first the medicine caused vomiting - counterproductive to getting her weight back. Anyway, she's eating now and not throwing up, so as long as I can get the pills into her, she should be on the mend.

Why a photo of Beau instead? You take what you can get with cats. :)

I'm really missing my Mom this weekend. I miss her every day but even more so on Mother's Day.

Spring/Not Spring

The temps continue to fluctuate but at least the dogwoods have survived.

Nest Building

I didn't expect any bird would choose this birdhouse as the opening is very small. Imagine my surprise when I spotted birds going in and out. Happy Spring!
