Everyday in May...




the cat obligingly posed on the table on the backporch...he thinks its his hunting preserve...hunting for chameleons...poor babies...he LOVES them...had a little trouble with the mesh top of the table...i mean HOW do you paint all the tiny mesh holes....and still keep it transparent..hmm and what happened to those chair legs on the left...and why is part of the table mesh and part not??? too many questions too many flaws BUT anyway here it is...i just have these all out order...should have been posted sunday...oh well...better late than never right?!

The neighbour's cat likes to hunt in our yard... I'm not too happy about it though!!

I love this picture, it's just really pretty!

Cats do know how to make themselves at home anywhere. Love the colors and looseness of this.

He is great and you are to hard on yourself. I am also forgiving myself for not posting daily. I will most likely get 31 posted, just not daily! Keep it up, I enjoy your blog!

You've been so busy, as always! You've caught the cat's sense o f anticipation beautifully

I'm laughing at "Most Days in May" ... a brilliant idea :) And laughing, too, at the way you've picked up on everything that's puzzling about what you (thought you) saw: that's exactly what happens to me! But the "flaws" don't spoil this, Margaret. The cat and the flowers and the overall setup/composition are just lovely.
