Wordless (Taciturn) Wednesday: Weird Hodgepodge

Ok... I didn't know what to post and so I just picked out odd things (well not all odd... Angel is just cute)... more day lilies... can't stop taking pictures of Angel or day lilies... Will try to keep words to a minimum (ergo taciturn) but....

Isn't she just too beautiful?


I don't know. It's not a good picture, but I like it anyway. It appeals to my love of odd things.



Again, not a great photo but I like the way the different plants grow in this wall.



Close your eyes, Linda... spider alert....

I'm a bad parent... favoring one kitty over the other...

He moved, but I like this anyway because of the way the colors of his feathers are so clear.

Me trying to be arty. I just love the weathered wood on my porch. There are a lot more... I thought about doing a whole WW of them. Be grateful this is the only one....



I had to post at least ONE picture of Tara Grace... there are nicer pictures of her here.



Don't know why I like this. I just do. It's part of the scar where lightning hit my tree.







We didn't have any fireworks on July 4th, but we did have a really pretty sky.

There are so many great shots here! The blue & red jays are lovely. The colors in the feathers are just awesome. The kitties are cute and funny. I love the one hanging over the tv!! The lilies are beautiful. I think the wall with the vines is very pretty. Making up for the lack of fireworks, you had your own bright, colorful sky.

Great shots! Happy WW! :D

I love pictures of birds. Our tiger lilies haven't bloomed yet - maybe next week.

Robert said...

So I'm just pretending I didn't read your political post and moving right on along to these wonderful pictures! :)

I love the bird pictures, especially the cardinal. And that last kitty picture steals the show. Great capture.

Raven, so many good ones! I love the last one - reminds me of my place. I also love the wood of your fallen tree with the leaves, the white tree and the rock wall - all very artsy to me. I keep going back to those.

I tagged you but only if you want to play. :)

Lady said...

Oh my! So many photos, and my connection won't let me view them all. I do like the ones I can see though!

Happy WW!

As you say, you can't go wrong with kitties!! Or skies, or birds! hahaha!

Snowbird said...

I always love your pictures. I could never tire of kitties, day lilies, sunsets, and of course birds. I am a baby bird feeder in the spring at a wildlife hospital and my favorites are the bluejays. I know they can be nasty as adults but boy are they cute babies!

Randall said...

Fascinating views of the world. The cat sticking out his tongue at us is priceless.

Indigo Children said...

beautiful pictures. The last one is my favorite. I feel more relaxed just from seeing it.

thanks for visiting my site.

Leora said...

Wow. I can relate to wanting to talk about your pics as you post them. Great ones...which do I like best? The bird? spider? Definitely: the wall.

Tipper said...

I love your "arty" photos and the sky ones are really beautiful too!

Great photos. Love the bluejay and the cardinal.

I like the kitty pictures!

Julie Artz said...

Thanks for sharing the picture of the cardinal! That's the state bird in my home state, but we don't have them out here in Colorado and I miss them! My son saw one when we were home visiting and had no idea what it was, which is sad since they're almost like pigeons (in quantity, not quality!) in Indianapolis.

And thanks for visiting my WW butterflies (http://chezartz.com/?p=288).

Happy WW! These are some great photos...

Thank you for visiting my meme post. I invite your blog readers to see a humorous reminder of the 'Good Ol' Days' as it relates to gas prices on my WW-post this week (smile)!

It's impossible to pick a favorite. I love all the cat photos and I think the weathered wood shot is interesting.
