Dreaming of Africa
I am married, a lifelong musician, somewhat competent photographer, and world traveler. Having been around for over 60 years, I have lots of "stuff" floating around inside my head that is screaming to get out.

Early Risers

One of the effects of our very mild winter is any early start to the many blooms in our yard.
Five of our Rhododendrons started blooming weeks ago, and unfortunately were hit by a few cold nights and have already lost their flowers.
Many other plants have now taken their place.

I love the color that is popping up around us, and am thankful that we have not had the snows and harsh weather that the eastern part of the country have suffered this winter.

Fostering Cats and Kittens again!

Once again, we have been enlisted to foster a mother and her kittens, and two pregnant cats (until early next week). All were rescued from a small single wide trailer where they shared space with 27 other cats and a family. We are giving them a secure place until other arrangements can be made.

This is the Siamom


Our girls are pretty used to occasional guests, but the mewing from behind the door has them all curious, and they take turns watching and listening at the door.
