Andes, New York

 It's been a summer of variations on the themes of recent summers. 
Some weekends in the Catskills, not enough, but one day, if I'm lucky,
I will have lots and lots of time there, whole seasons to explore
all those greens.

jewel weed, also known as touch-me-not

As ever I am enchanted by wildflowers, little gifts that just appear
on roadsides and streamsides, unmowed lawns, 
wherever there is a little bit of space and dirt and light.

Taki the cat; Greenpoint, Brooklyn

Ten days in NYC, apartment/cat/garden sitting
for one of my sons. 
Ten days of walking, taking ferries, subways and busses,
taking it in, that endlessly interesting city.

Brooklyn Botanic Garden

Botanic gardens in Brooklyn and the Bronx.

Monet, Metropolitan Museum of Art

So many museums.

There have been lots of cats as well.
I fostered three litters of kittens for the shelter where I volunteer
(and kept the one in the picture).

I am fortunate to experience so much goodness and beauty.
The real life problems exist, 
but I just want to share the good things, 
and hope you find a bit of pleasure in them,
a reminder maybe of some wildflowers you saw,
or a kitten you once loved.
