(photos ©Sometimes,2018) The colors in these shots are overwhelmed by the bright sunlight coming in the windows…except for Pearl, who is completely black and requires different camera settings to see her face. The green paint is prettier than it appears, but could use a fresh coat of paint. (The very thought of painting scares me! and yes, I know we should have painted before we put the flooring down. yikes!)

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.)
