Over the Weekend

Over the weekend I spent a fair amount of time working on Mosey 'n Me's "Primitive Cat."  All the pink below the nose is new as is the tail.  Still lots to do, but am feeling like this is something I can get finished in the next couple of months.

I'd also like to thank everyone for their good wishes on the Roseburg Dahlia Show.  My sister got two entries on the Head Table (a BIG deal!).  This triple of 'Embrace" was one of the two Head Table winners.

Over the weekend I saw several groups of around 20 Cedar Waxwings.

This group was mostly young birds.

This group was a mix of juveniles and adults.

I love their high-pitched chatter...

...and their elegant good looks.

Sunday evening at dusk my father happened to notice this
A Great Horned Owl perched in one of the large second growth Douglas fir trees close to the house.

The bird never said a word.

But it did make a nice silhouette for us to enjoy.

Good for your sister.
Your father has a sharp eye. We always hear the owls first, then spot them. Such awesome creatures.

Congrats to your sister!! What a gorgeous flower! Love the Mosey 'n Me cat... is is big? Or you just aren't devoting lots of time to it right now? I have never seen an owl, live and in the wild. Pretty cool! Hugs!

I love that cat piece and the way he is happily ignoring the little robin on his back.
