hit the jackpot: my former closet
Guess what I found this morning while going through my closet? My old clothes from a couple of decades ago. These were my “good” work clothing that I wore to teach. Nice skirts and blazers, a decent dress or two.
I thought I shipped all this stuff off to the Goodwill long ago. It actually is like hitting the jackpot, finding my old wardrobe that (believe it or not) still in style. Truth be told, these outfits have likely been in and out of style several times over the years. In fact, my style-bible is still a current clothing catalog.
I know what they are going to say: “you’re wearing that again!?” My standard answer: “I’m old, I wear what I want.”
This is Sister…do you like Color or B&W best?
I like this Color photo of Sister, who is a true Calico Cat. But I also like the black and white rendition, mainly because the B&W allows both the green and the blue patches to be removed. I could remove the color patches from the color shot, or I can go with the grayscale version.
What do you all think? Does the removal of color affect the quality of the picture?
One thing I really like about pet pictures is the sharpness and detail of whiskers and fur gradations. I did not attempt any enhancement or special tricks, the photo is the original color shot with the removal of color. Since I like to play around with filters and the like, I plan to take the Sister Shot through the paces and see what it does.
I’d like to have some input into this…color or black & white?

a gift from Sister
Sister brought a mouse
to the door of the house
as proud as she could be.
Thank you, dear Sister,
dashing up through the mist
early this morning.
Quite without warning
with no sign of mourning,
But we are duly impressed.
Your prowess with a mouse
is a valuable resource
but please…a bit more remorse!
look who’s here
This critter landed on the spot just as I snapped the photo., he may have been coming in for a touch-down; I thought he was a fly until I took a closer look through the resizer. He reminds me of a Power Ranger toy. (©Sometimes, 2021)
Lily has bloomed! TA DA!
ever wonder what it’s like inside a daylily bud? (me neither, until now…)
I believe we had six Daylilies several years ago when we bought the first plants. Each is a different color and has its own features. Up until recently I knew completely nothing about Daylilies, now I know a few things, but I am not yet comfortable in discussing the subject. Stay tuned and we will see where this new interest goes.

rugged peonies defy the wind, my entry for Cee’s peony challenge June 23
This storm that went through Friday night just rattled and rolled my Peonies, and my Red Poppies also were whipped. (I have some shots of the poppies, too. The wind also littered the back yards with leaves and twig-branches that were detached by the wind. It also completed the destruction of the Lil Kim Lilac, which had bloomed profusely that day and day before.
