I told you I would post more today, although I said this morning instead of this afternoon. Well, at least it's the same day! The flower above is a blossom from the old feline favorite, Catnip! My cat loves it. In fact, any mint in the house he goes nuts over. Catnip is part of the mint family. I used to pick the leaves off the catnip when I was a kid and chew on it. My grandmother is the one who showed me that it is safe. Back to my cat. He is so bad about it that I cannot set a bowl of mint chocolate chip ice cream down and walk away. He will be into it. And if you don't rinse the toothpaste or mouthwash down the sink after brushing your teeth, he will be up there eating it. And if I make the mistake of leaving my purse unzipped where I have my gum stashed, he will pull the pack of gum out and get into it! He's mental! LOL
This is just another old barn, close to where I took the picture of the barn from last night's post. I love the delapidated buildings. You sometimes wonder how some of them are still standing. My grandfather's barn had the entire east wall missing for years. I don't ever remember seeing the barn with that wall. I only have an old arial shot of the farm that was taken back in the 40's or 50's. Grandpa isn't really sure when it was taken. Only 2 of the structures in that arial photo still stand. The shed, which is what I now call the barn. I put a pic of it in a few days ago. And the old corn crib. I have a couple pics of that, but haven't done anything with them yet.
A couple of little sparrows at the bird bath. I found a new perch for myself to take pictures of the bird feeder area without disturbing the birds. Michael thought I was completely off my rocker when he saw me there yesterday. I was in the bathroom with my left foot on the bath tub and my right foot on the toilet. I have to be up high enough so I can shoot through just a window and avoid the screen. Lori thought I was nuts too, even though she didn't say so.
This looks to be a juvenile male blue jay. I only say this because of his head. I've never seen a blue jay with a head that looks like this. Or is it maybe a female? Abe, you would probably know the answer to this one. Is it a juvy or a female?
Then, the late afternoon sky. I thought the clouds looked kinda neat. But nothing compared to Fugazi's cloud shots!
I'm gonna call it quits for now. See if I can go out and find something to take more pictures of. I'm gonna have to get a whole new computer just to hold all the pictures I've been taking! I have never taken so many pictures in my life as I have with the camera my cousin gave me.
Hopefully I'll have more to post tonight. Please don't be mad at me if I don't :(, or I will cry! LOL
