Please excuse the extreme snoozefest in my choice of subjects. I honestly am overwhelmed by the number of plants here, though. I mean, we had sagebrush, ragweed, some pine trees and an indian paintbrush or two if we were lucky. Here it is like a smörgåsbord for my eyes. I just have never seen anything like it. I know that plants aren't the most interesting or innovative subjects of photography (and neither are cats, for that matter), but cut me a break. My eyes are still new to this.
I really loved the swash of blue in the background. It just made me happy.
