This is what it was like in spring:
|Big hairy critter|
And here it is now:
|Big leafy critter|
It was impossible to get a clear shot because the vine wasn't the only thing that leafed out during the summer - that tree in front of it did, too. And the house in behind doesn't look the same at all, due to the different angle from which the picture was taken.
Maybe I should have spray-painted a big "X" where I stood for the first picture, so I'd know where to stand for the second one.
. . . or maybe not ...
And on another topic, not long ago I was able to catch a crow in the act of washing his food, a habit I didn't realize crows indulged in until I read up on it:
|If you click on the photo to enlarge it, you can see that it looks like this guy has a French fry.|
|I'm not sure it's going to get any cleaner in that puddle.|
Fall is on its way, here. The leaves are changing colour.
And to wrap things up, this fellow came out of nowhere - he was very photogenic and extremely friendly and I was afraid he was going to follow me home. That's how we ended up with the last cat we got, but the inn is now full. Luckily, he looked well cared for, he was wearing a flea collar, and he was clearly not feral - too lovey by far. After a good pat, he was content to let me leave without following.
|Just to be clear, the patting was done by me, not him.|
Hope all is well in your world.
