Mother doe shows love to her daughter!

Sometimes  humans forget that animals  feel and  show love such as this deer teaching her child how to groom itself . This was very touching to me to be able to watch this act of love from a window at my home. Notice the wet fur on the little does neck where she was groomed then she groomed her mother and her mother closed her eyes in pleasure as she felt the love her little one had for her!

Lily has her 2nd birthday !

Lily turned 2 years old this month in May of 2017!

Working with a cat to photograph them takes endurance and patience of which I have had to develop over many years!

 I placed  the table cloth and presents and  positioned Lily on the table for photographs. 

 I  returned from the kitchen with the birthday cake  to find she had skidded off the table and drug the entire   table of presents and gifts off the table to the floor! 

 Hope you enjoy the pictures which took me over an hour holding a heavy camera in one hand and a wriggling 10 pound Lily cat in the other hand...

Tripod would never have worked, no time to back off to use a tripod and keep a wild child on the table!

May flowers!

May is my favorite month to photograph my Sheri's healing flower garden the reason why is that the blooms are numerous, the colors contrasting so well and the garden is filled in with plants and foliage. I have clematis, iris, coneflowers, perennial salvia, butterfly bushes, dwarf guara,tall garden phlox and 80 daylilys.

Spring has Sprung with a New Family Member named Lily!

April 2016! It has been a long winter but spring is here and Sheri's healing flower garden is greening up with perennials already up a foot out of the ground, butterflys bushes, clematis, salvias, daylilys, iris and coneflowers which will bloom in mid to late May! I have a new child, an addition to the house and her name is Lily! I went to a shelter looking for a kitten white with black markings and had prayed to find this particular kitten as I never had a choice in choosing a kitten, I always took in strays in the yard or out of the woods and spayed or neutered each one and gave them their shots each year and they had a great loving life with us. This little Lily was pulled out of the cage and those shelters make one cringe to go in them. I put her in my arms and she was so shy and light as a feather and 5 months old. I took her home and within 3 days she had come out of her shell and she was climbing my new curtains and all over the new couch and chair and up and down the halls and just totally unmanageable! I wanted a kitten to bond with but my nerves have been shot for the last 5 months! I have put aluminum foil on the couch and that has slowed her down does work but I do not like to have furniture covered with sheets and alum foil to FOIL the cat off them! She has adapted to being walked outside in the yard with a harness...and due to dogs, snakes and more she will have to live this way for her life.. Bro is now inside also since the dog attack last october when I had to euthanize Peebo, the oldest cat. So here are some photos of the 2 cats I have now and some flowers ...blooming on April 2, 2016
