A cuddle of kitten


That’s the title I gave to my daily blip on blipfoto.com. These cuddly little kittens first appeared under our woodpile on November 13th. I blipped them a week later, on November 19th, but then they disappeared. Nobody in our neighborhood has seen them since. The mother cat was spotted a few times, but we had concluded that the little ones were long gone…perhaps as a meal for the neighborhood hawk. Much to our surprise, they reappeared yesterday, and this morning Bob came in the house from the back yard, calling to me, “If you want a good blip, get your camera. The kittens are under Alison’s deck.” I sneaked out the front door so they wouldn’t hear me. Walking softly I peered around the corner of our neighbor’s house, and there they were. Didn’t they pose nicely?

What a difference a day makes!

Yesterday, finally, after day after day of rain, enough rain to make me believe web feet would soon be a necessity, the sun came out. Under a sunny blue sky, my walk in the park was a joy. The birds were chirping, trilling, and flitting around. The mallards were beyond joyous with the sun shining and a bog filled with water for swimming. I snapped this picture of the river, flowing fast and bubbling along happily.

Alas and alack, after one sunny day, grey skies returned, and this afternoon the clouds were spitting snow, the dreaded (by many) “S word.” Here’s the same scene, snapped today under overcast skies.

What a difference a day makes!
Oh, and those mallards I mentioned…Here are a few pictures taken yesterday…


So that’s it today from the far northeastern corner of Ohio. Check back in a few days to see what has been happening, and if you have a little sunshine to spare, could you send a few rays this way please.
