Demanding…

Penny the Cat is a feisty, often grouchy cat. Interaction is always on her terms, on her schedule. Whether walking across my keyboard, attacking my wiggling toes beneath my desk, sitting on me to awaken me/pawing my face for breakfast or inserting herself into view, Penny is not shy seeking attention.

Declaring War: Spanish Bluebells

Spanish Bluebells: Invasive, maniacal, beautiful….these pesky plants will take over in short order. I have declared war on this plant. I am not sure where it came from, but in three short years it is popping up everywhere. Beauty and color aside…their time is numbered (I think).

Cottonwood Trees: It is that time again……..

when the black Cottonwood trees, in the wild land area behind our homes, start their month long snow fall of cotton that coats everything like a gauzy shroud. Just when the yard comes into shape comes the swirling, cottony mess…it started this weekend.

Soon the lawn and street will be white.

This morning’s coating begins as the morning warms up the seedlings fall.

Cottonwood Grass

Like drifting snow, the accumulations build up against edges and corners first.

I prefer the real snow…………I think

Bull Thistle: So Invasively Appealing

 

Eurasian Bull Thistle, an invasive ‘weed’ now happily anchored in all 50 states, Europe, Africa, and Asia. I took this photo while camping at Walton Lake in Central Oregon.

The ‘weed’ is believed to have arrived in Colonial times. By the late 1800’s it had moved across the U.S. With some reputed medicinal purposes, it still is viewed as a nuisance. A somewhat attractive nuisance…as many nuisances are. I enjoy some macro work when in the field although I do not spend nearly enough time with the details of the shot. I am more the see it…shoot it photographer.
