... so much so we are only seeing the "backside" of Winthrop who is totally disgusted ...
But .. I can't help but admire the "sticky snow" .. it is beautiful in the garden ... the pictures look like they are black and white ... don't they ?
The bittersweet vine is gorgeous dressed in white .
That corner of the garden will be under a lot of thought and reconstruction .. it will be a cool shady retreat for everyone ..
My meditation buddha is smiling at the thought of it all soon to come ?
Those few nights ago I saw bits and pieces of a beautiful sunset .. but the houses on this hill cut off a great deal of it .. still I am determined to capture some of that colour and drama.
My neighbor's tree .. well we are sure it has been dying for a while .. it was such a gorgeous tree .. so graceful , so much character ...
When I see it here it keeps reminding me of Wuthering Heights for some reason .. the wind ? the arching limbs .. it is just STUCK in my mind ...
The drama ?? .. colour ? ... OK ... I quit .. it just reminds me of the story of wildness almost contained and yet not ... go figure ?
There was so much more colour in that sunset but the camera did not pick it up for some reason.
The tribe which is the furry family of Martha & family from Water Roots
This little girl is the most beautiful black cat called Nacho .. shy at first then look out ! she wants to be front and center ?
Then Bailey figures out "hey ... I want to be a star too ! ... should we do lunch and talk ?"
But not to be left behind comes Clair .. little girl with darker fur, petite build but huge on sweet gentle character .. as were all three of the tribe : )
This was my first "meeting" of a ferret clan plus cutey cat" .. I have to say they were so amazing .. so inquisitive yet so gentle and careful with getting to know me .. and picking up my girls scent from my camera bag ..
Nacho is so photogenic isn't she ? .. her sister and brother in a broad sense of the word .. were just so busy investigating EVERYTHING ! they couldn't pose like Nacho seemed to know how to do ?
How cute is this I ask you ? .. they had play time and then they needed their nap and Martha had it down pat for their schedule .. she is an amazing ferret/cat mother to the "Tribe" .. they are such lucky creatures to have such a loving family .. they "pay it forward" by behaving so sweetly I am a convert to ferrets ? LOL .. seriously .. I am no longer a ferret virgin and first impressions were "WOW !!"
Some how ... I think Sophie has found out about my rendezvous on the side .. she is not having it .. extra loving is on the menu for my girls to make up for my indiscretion ? hehehehe
So ... March .... well ... how about some "natural" mini lights on the trees in celebration ??
These alfalfa sprouts have been growing in record time and ready to harvest for salads .. sandwiches .. even just by themselves they are delicious !
This method couldn't be easier .. if I can do it .. ANYONE can crack that whip and muster up fresh greens in your very own container .. notice three levels .. I think we will all claim a level each ?
How cool is this ? ... they reach for the source of light so I give them a turn every once in a while and talk to them a bit .. I think they appreciate it ? .. seems kind of mean that we eat them after a conversation eh ? ... eeeekkkk !!
Many thanks to Martha and her little tribe of furry souls willing to let me take pictures and post about how wonderful my first up close ferret experience was : ) and yes ! Nacho too .. she will be my Halloween Cat poster kid, don't tell the girls !
