Sissy and I went for a walk through old town Independence--in a quaint shop window, I thought I saw a crystal ball. So I took it's picture--and mine, too! Turns out the globe was actually the world.
I'm combining two events in one today--I don't like to do it that way--but I've been so busy with this yard sale I haven't had much time to do much!
Shadow Shot Sunday.

When Sissy and I were young, we, too wore foxgloves upon our hands. I would imagine I wore polish upon my beauteous long fingernails and would flutter them with an elegant air. We knew they were probably poison--so we didn't eat them. A good thing, as these flowers are a potent source of digitalis!

This little goldfinch was moving her head so quickly, all I caught was this bit of a Whirl Twirl! One would think a bird could get dizzy at that rate!!!

I was fascinated with the variety of birds we saw--Stellar Jays, Robins, a brown headed cowbird, sparrows and a flock of golden finches.
The brightly colored male kept his distance most of the time--and then there were the ladies--as you can see there was quite a fiasco at the feeder!

I'm discovering our new KittyBootz is quite photogenic. Snapping her photo last night was a joy--she even seemed to want to pose for me.
This is my favorite of the lot. I love the contrast of her soft fur and the shine of old wood. And those eyes! Wow! What a little beauty. She is filling our lives with laughter at her funny antics. I'm so glad she's come to live in our home. We are blessed.

I went for a walk one sunny Autumn evening. I chanced to look up into a sun dappled maple tree. What I saw took my breath away and filled my eyes. Tangy greens and shiny golds tangled in sun and shadow to make a feast for the eyes.

The look on this plucky fellow's face clearly says he's a troublemaker! He could be an itty bitty birdie Mob boss! He'd look wonderful with a little black top hat! I love the humor I think see in this tough old fellow's face and the way the light reflects rainbow colors from his feathers is beautiful.

When I was young, my siblings and I loved playing in the thickets of filberts growing between the house and the old Oak tree. We made rooms and corridors from one place to another by knotting and tying the nimble branches of the filbert trees together. Wild blackberries and honeysuckle vines would twine up through those living walls to fill the air with fragrance and an occasional snack!
Years later I found thick knots where the limbs of the wild filberts had continued to grow after we'd tied them together. Ah, childhood--sometimes I wish I could go back there.
