These lazy summer days as I sleep among the lush and green ferns in the garden I get to thinking about different things. Among the ferns it is so nice and cool. My thoughts are preoccupied by city pigeons. I have told you about them before.
Mama has told me about the parks being full of pigeons and I have always wondered why they like to stay in the city center and don’t want to come on over to my side of the river. I mean here there is so much space, in the garden there are so many interesting things to do and all that great fresh air. At one time we did have two pigeons that came to live up in the attic. I could hear them cooing in the early mornings but they have gone away. Hope you enjoy the photos of me by the ferns and of those silly city pigeons who obviously don’t know any better.
No one seems to know
what color my eyes
in certain light they shine like beacons
in the dark night
one time they are blue
must be due to my mood
then they become emerald green
it is quite a sight to see
wonder what color
tomorrow they’ll be
Summer has arrived but with it rain and thunderstorms. I long for those sunny days when I could sleep by the lush, green ferns in the garden.
When my mom would play with me and catch up with me by the fence.
Arguments on the fence with the annoying neighbor cat.
Climbing high up into the trees.
Helping Papa sort the garbage before burning.
Watching birds and crows fly about.
When day is done finally settling down for a well deserved nap.
Is it morning? Can I just stay here for awhile before I begin my day?
OK I’m up. At least I made it to the front door. Feed me some breakfast and I just might make it through the day.
I’m out, I’m out. See in the garden sniffing the grass. Let me just relax for awhile.
Well made it through the day. Now for some nighttime fence sitting.
Don’t worry. There is always tomorrow for more action.
