Like a Delicate Hot-House Flower

These days, I find that photography and writing go hand-in-hand.

If I don’t have any new photos, I’m unable to think of a post story.  At the same time, if I don’t have any story ideas, I have no reason to go out looking for photographic opportunities.

I know you’ve all missed me.

Mother Nature helped out a bit recently.  The orchid plant in my office has begun to bloom (see photo above, isn’t it gorgeous?) and it’s been warm and sunny outside.

So … backyard photos.  Not as gorgeous as  the orchid, but at least they’re green:

“Double Barrier”

Tracking the bunny.

Hmm, maybe it went under the fence into the other yard …

I’m going to try to get out more before the weather changes back to winter – which, here in Western New York, could be any time.  Admittedly, it’s going to be slow going as I tire easily these days.  Most days I consider it a good job if I can make it to the end of my own driveway to bring the trash cans in.  (Yes, I do make it to work three days a week, but that doesn’t count because it’s not “fun”).

Speaking of tired, Puppy Cody did manage to chase a couple of squirrels and bunnies.  She’s getting old[er] too; crashing on the couch is a good option after returning to  the house:

Hugs, everyone.  If I get my motivation back, maybe I’ll start posting a bit more regularly.  A lot has been going on; maybe I’ll share.

Assuming you’re all still here with me …

  3. Good to see a post from you. It’s been a while. Great pics of Cody. We have Maya now and she has sniffed the scent of rabbits but so far not come face to face with one. Too busy fascinated by bees and butterflies, bless her! Keep safe!

    It is very, very good to see you here, CM. Make it through this upstate NY heat wave. Cheers to you, dear puppy Cody and the hubby.
