Caturday Art – Raven and Bentley

I’ve been feeling a bit nostalgic lately, probably because Raven’s health has been unpredictable and I’m wishing she were younger and healthier. But time marches on and we try to live each day with a positive outlook and gratitude.

This photo of Bentley and Raven is from April 2009. They lived together for less than a year, but their gentle demeanor allowed them to become friends quickly. Raven enjoyed rubbing her head on Bentley’s paw.

I used the the Illusion art effect in LunaPic, then added a simple frame. Here’s the original.

Nature Friday – Nutty Squirrel

Hey, what is this squirrel doing in my catnip plant?  The plant is barely surviving in winter and doesn’t need a pesky squirrel poking around in it.

We rarely feed the squirrels because we don’t want them stealing food from the bird feeders, or stealing the entire feeder!  But Mom was feeling generous and tossed out a walnut for him. He enjoyed eating his snack in my tree.

Thankful Thursday – Me, My Dad, & My Tree

I haven’t been feeling well lately, so my Dad decided to take me outside to my favorite tree for a sniff. It was a beautiful winter day with sunny temperatures in the mid 50s.
