Monday Meandering

We have been on the road quite a bit this past month or so. These are  the pages I did for our trip to Michigan. 
We had such a good time. One the drive there we stopped at a cemetery to look for Crossbills that had been reported there. We did see them but it was a hurried stop. There was a quaint chapel there in the cemetery and there were many tombstones that would make for great sketching. I didn't have time for much.
While in Michigan I got to visit a garden blogging friends. That is always a treat.
Seeing those big windmills is always mindboggling. I can't imagine having one in my neighborhood even though they don't seem to make much noise. Just the presence of these giganitc machines is intimidating to me. Of course I see objects that give me ideas, like the gourd with stones on it made into a fairy house. Hmmm I believe I have some gourds sitting around waiting for some attention.
What is capturing your attention today??

Animal Wednesday - Drama in the Garden

I wish I had had my camera in my hand when I saw this drama beginning. Our neighbors big black cat is outraged with all the squirrels in the garden. She lies in wait for birds too which I don't appreciate but when she gets after the squirrels I don't really mind. The squirrels need to be culled. There are so many in the neighborhood. They thrive on our birdseed. 
This squirrel is much too wiley for the the cat. You can see the cat in the lower left crook of the tree while the squirrel is on the big limb on the upper left of the tree. The squirrel was shaking it's tail and chattering at the cat. This is about the time the cat gave up. Those squirrels are fast.
Happy Animal Wednesday.
