My photo
Having a large Scottish heritage that migrated from England into Canada to Maine and other states. I am from a family of 9. Six girls and 3 boys. My dad died young when I was about 8 years old. I have 4 children and 3 step children with the great joy of 20 grandchildren. I worked in financial institutions and accounting for many years. Now I sew and make lots of stuffed animals and many other things. I'm a grandmother that has years of sewing in a wide variety of catagories. Photography has become one of my passions over the years. Nature that God has presented us is one of the greatest to photograph. My family and pets hate to see me with a camera in my hands. The bug took hold at Christmas time taking photos of my children in front of the tree. That became a tradition. Then you have family gatherings, vacations, grandchildren and the list could go on.

Cat Frustration

This is a frustration post as I'm very distraught over the actions of one of my cats. They have always come to the kitchen window and scratch furiously when they wanted to come in. The calico one Shadow doesn't like to be ignored, which I do because they go in and out like children, but don't know how to open the door themselves.

Today, late in the afternoon she kept scratching at the window and I totally ignored her as I was working on the computer. Eventually, I saw both cats cross my view from the computer window. Immediately, I knew that it wasn't anything I would like seeing. Shadow was carrying something in her mouth and trotting as fast as she could, while Black Beauty followed checking things out.

I went to the door as fast as I could get to it, camera in tow to always get the proof of her gifts. She loves to bring me gifts and without realizing it had ignored that fact. When I found her it looked to be a small bird still alive. So, I told her sternly NO and let it go. She didn't like that one bit. She picked her prize up and trotted into the back yard again. When I caught up with her, I was horrified to see she had a baby duck!

Where she got it I have no clue. Trying to rescue it but it was faster than you would believe. I kept trying to pick it up, but it made it to the chain link fence between our property and a neighbors with Shadow fast following. It made it into next back yard, but I was unable to tell if it got from her reach. I have not seen my cat since.

Beautiful Clematis

This beautiful star shaped flower the clematis, may be found climbing on some of your neighbors mailbox poles. Walking in the neighborhood in the past couple week I've come across some that have gorgeous blooms and can't resist taking photos of them. My camera usually comes with me on my little walks.

Most of them have been in beautiful shades of purple. Some are white with huge star shaped heads and buzzy centers. There is an official site for Clematis that has a fee to join. This Clematis site discribes the plant and caring for them.
