Tulip Poplar

The trees are God's great alphabet:
With them He writes in shining green
Across the world His thoughts serene.

Jessie’s New Do

I took our cat, Jessica, to the vet last week for her summer shave. This particular cat haircut is called the lion cut. Jessica is really enjoying her new do now that the weather is warmer, plus it's easier for her to take care of. She's 18 years old and isn't as good about grooming as she used to be. She's so soft, you just can't keep your hand off her. She loves to be petted and rubbed so she doesn't mind a bit.

Bird and Bull

Our cat, Bullet, was absolutely mesmerized by this baby grackle. The grackle was sitting on top of a boxwood shrub waiting for mama to feed him or her.
