  3. Phillip you are getting to be a really good photographer! I began picking the pictures I liked best but gave up when I lost count. The old bench is my favorite though I think. More for the content than the colors or structure. It tells a story. :)

    It's a beautiful cat. If it's female I bet Leo would fall in love. That is not saying much. He falls in love with every female he sees. He's awful. I think your cat is male judging by the color. Hopefully he doesn't roam. It would be tempting for people to entice him away.

  4. A lovely synopsis of fall. Cute kitty picture. She/he looks a little unhappy.

  5. That cat just showed up and isn't actually ours. Michael and I have feel in love with him though - isn't he beautiful? My neighbor said that it showed up at their house and they have been feeding it. She says it is a boy.

  6. Yes Phillip, he is really beautiful! He reminds me of a kitten I had once. I named her JuneCarter because she reminded me of the singer. JuneCarter turned out to be a boy. He was a terrible cat. Stupid. Had no idea which side of the bread the butter was on.

  7. That's a lynx point siamese, have you had it checked with a microchip scanner? I hope he has a family who is missing him... very handsome boy.

    Meanwhile, your garden is utterly stunning as usual. Every time I come to your site and you post a wall of photos like this, I'm wowed.

  10. Just beautiful. However, its also sad knowing winter is near even though winter is beautiful in its own way. Good job.

  14. The maples really go out in force. What a show of color. For me as well, the bench composition is a favorite. I hope it can withstand many more winters. It is nice to have a knowledgeable follower on your blog who could identify the breed of the cat. I just thought its'a gorgeous kitty, and if I were a cat, I wouldn't want to leave your garden either...

  15. The picture of the cat with that bowl is my favorite - his eyes match the blue-turquoise of the glaze so well!

  16. From Oklahoma, I'm waving a fond farewell to all your foliage, flowers and kitty too. It won't be long until bulbs poke their heads out of the soil, and everything begins again. Why, then, does it feel so sad?~~Dee
