The closing date is near, and soon most of these blooming trees in the photos will be gone forever. Not all…the part being sold is about 1.7 acres, but the remaining six or so acres will remain family property. Here are a few of the phots I took the other day when Sister (my calico house cat) and I took a walk to the back, where the highway fence marks the edge of our land. Thanks for tagging along!
Nature keeps busy all right, ever creating whimsical and intriguing things.

Toby is a tabby cat, he’s graced these pages before. He is our oldest cat, or one of them, as his sister Pearl is the same age. They are about 12 years old. (©Sometimes, 2018)

This morning, while bringing into the kitchen the water dish from the cat shelter, I was struck by the simple raw beauty found in the simplest thing—a chunk of ice that had formed overnight in a metal pan—to create a frozen world in which was contained weird and lovely images and effects.
The inherent bubbles and foreign bodies, the shadows and reflections present glorious effects worthy of the delight of even the most mundane imagination.
I was delighted to see the Reblog button on this post by jansenphotos, on the excellent blog “Dutch Goes the Photo!” which features excellent photographs on a weekly theme. A visit (via link) to the Netherlands design studio collection called “Fragile Future” leads to a fascinating photo display of remarkable light structures. Thanks for the reblog.
The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge has the theme of Structure, which has made me very happy, as there is lots of structure in Nature and the world around us.
Sunday’s post focused on the structure of a fan structured leaf, with the angulation of each fold providing additional strength to the leaf over a rather large area. Today’s post goes more toward the delicate, as we look at the placement of the seeds of that dreaded lawn denizen, the dandelion. Each seed is constructed to be carried by the slightest of breezes to find a bit of disturbed soil, where it can take hold and germinate.
This is a closer look at the lovely dandelion…
This most delicate of structures has found its way across the ages to float forth and multiply. As an aside, a design studio in the Netherlands makes light sculptures that use the…

This ornamental apple tree is glorious in the Spring, loaded with blossoms. But as Fall approaches, for some reason, the leaves fade and die leaving the branches bare until after Winter.
These blossoms popped out after Monday’s eclipse of the Sun. I have no idea why, but I heard NASA or some other agency has requested reports of strange things happening…this qualifies. Also, my daughter’s blue Hydrangea turned purple (she lives next door.) My Lantana turned from pink to purple earlier in this Summer. (I realize that Hydrangeas do change color according to specific factors in the soil or whatever.)
This is shameless promotion! I admit it. The Band is TIME CAT, a local Akron, Ohio band which happens to be my granddaughter as vocalist, guitarist.
Time Cat was the headliner band at this event, which was sponsored by the Highland Square Neighborhood Association. Included were up to 130 area bands, which performed on front porches of various Highland homeowners.
I am also including a video which I made during the performance. This is my first attempt at video making, so it is obviously an amateur production. The footage could benefit from some editing/trimming, but that would cut out the audio/music portions, which I want to leave uncut.
Hey…it’s a rock concert…that means it’s good old rock n roll. Here’s a link to my video… I hope. oops…malfunction…I don’t know how to do the file type and all that tech stuff…I’ll post it separately…maybe. 🙂
In the event you don’t want to suffer through my videos…here’s a link to the Time Cat site. https://timecatmusic.bandcamp.com/
“Late Great” because this web was in a very precarious position…as is normal for spiders, apparently…as this splendid construction was demolished quickly when I ran right into it and ended up wearing the web like a hair-net…or veil…I forgot it was there. (Please see yesterday’s post for more web photos if you are so inclined.)
The deck is eight-feet wide.
By the way— my spider web photos are more about photography than spiders or webs. I have tried repeatedly to capture various topics, and consider it a learning experience.
OH! The spider is not really as big as she appears, she has a very large bug in her grip, we call it a stink-bug, triangular in shape.
