Weekly Winners

In my own backyard… I just didn’t have many photo opportunities this week, so I took all of these photos in my backyard. So, I apologize for the over-cat-ification of this entry. ;)

Ready to bloom

Waiting to bloom.


Soaking up the sun rays.


This is one of four feral cats that have adopted us and live in our backyard. Maliboo wants to be tamed it seems, though. He stays within 3 feet of us at all times and seems to adore our indoor cat, but he is just a LITTLE too skittish still to pet. We're getting there. We'd love to catch him and bring him inside someday.


Sweet Bailey is our inside cat, but he loves going outside to get some sun.


Playing with brightness and contrast settings on my cell phone camera.


Again with playing with brighteness and contrast settings. Love the shade of blue it turned the sky.


Close-up of Bailey. He's slowly getting more patient with my camera-wielding ways.


Maliboo lets his curiosity get away with him and comes within inches of me. It took a lot for me to not reach down and pet him.


Honeysuckle, try two. My first attempt at a photo of my honeysuckle ended in my getting soaked. My neighbor was watering his tree just on the other side of the fence. He didn't know I was there and the water stream came over the fence and doused me! Needless to say, I double checked there was no neighbor around when I got THIS shot.

      Thanks so much!!

      haha — I found it so funny what happened. I just stood there blinking, not sure if I should yell over to him or laugh. In the end, I laughed and never said a word. Wasn’t worth it… I was just glad no one was there to witness it!

    I love honeysuckle! I know it’s a weed, but it smells so nice.

      It DOES. And it reminds me of when I was little. This is so silly, I know, but a daycare I went to had a fence along one side of the playground that was COVERED in honeysuckle. So the smell literally makes me feel like I’m 5 years old again. Its such a random and rare memory, but it sticks with me and I love it.

    Cool! I love the first one!! your cats look so fluffy – I’d have a hard time not petting them too.

    The cats are super sweet. Bailey’s adorable, but there’s something so classic and simple and beautiful about black tabbies… they get me every time. I can see why you’re so taken with Maliboo!

      Yes! Not only is he beautiful, he has this wonderful personality about him that draws us to him. He’s a total ham and makes us laugh all the time. Gotta love it when an animal gives such simple delight!

    I like the one of the cat in the plants lying down. The first shot is super cool though, it looks like the buds are made of gold.

      Thank you! They do! The sunlight seems to sparkle off of them.

    These pictures are great!! I love the one of the honey suckle. That looked amazing. That is such a great flower in the spring. I love the smell of them in the air everywhere you go. They also taste amazing :) I actually make flower pens. You might like them. You should check out my website.

    These are such gorgeous shots!! I love that first one, and, of course, all of the kitties. Good stuff.
