There are a number of would-be blogs in various degrees of existence, but the last several weeks have yielded little time to pursue perfecting for posting.  (Admittedly the term “perfect” has no place in anything to do with yours truly, but i wanted a word starting with the letter p, and “polishing” didn’t possess proper punch, if you please  : )

Seeing i’ve been over a month without posting, (and will be a while before having time to finish any of the posts-in-progress), i took a few minutes to step out onto the driveway and shoot the two things readily available (aside from the obvious one big thing  : )

An American Beauty Berry bush took up residence some years ago, sprouting out of one of the old railroad ties that border the drive.  I’m grateful to Harolyn Castleberry for alerting me to the photo-op they provide about this time every year: those berries turning from green to…(if you’ll pardon the expression), deep purple.  It’s such a rich color i have an urge to shoot them every time i make a trip to or from the car.

Even insects admire the berries’ beauty…(bunches more berries be here)

This cat is one of many around the neighborhood, and one of a few that venture onto my grounds—ostensibly to enjoy bird-watching from the porch by the kitchen.  But unlike all the others, this one pretends to like me.  The only trick she’s managed to teach me so far is to rub her behind the ears, which—for an old dog such as myself, may be about as complicated a bit of learning as is manageable   : )

As for the other blogs-to-be, i suspect it will be a while yet…perhaps the cat got my tongue   ; )

be blessed,
