Scent of roses in air!

What I like most about this season is dynamism – for example, you see ten blooming flowers in one moment and there are another twenty sprouting in an hour!

To maximize the pleasure the ‘rose season’ gives me I walk a lot. It’s not too hot or cold outside and air is full of different adorable scents of flowers – pure pleasure!

So why don’t we start this day with a touch of colorful roses? I’m not possessive, I can share pictures I’ve taken with you ūüėćūüėć

My spring rose collection, part I.

Have a beautiful day,

Wonderful Vinka!

I was ‘hunting’ for beautiful Vinka flowers yesterday – it was not easy to find them as they love to hide their beauty from the sun, especially behind other plants. However I won our Hide and Seek game and found several Vinka hiding places!

One of the most popular ground cover plants, it can thrive in both cold and warm climates. It blooms prolifically, is easy to grow and tolerates poor soil and drought.

It’s stray animals day. You could help them too

Today is Stray Animals Day. It is estimated that there are 600 million stray animals in the world.

They are often hungry, suffer from extreme heat or cold and disease, and suffer from abuse. Stray Animals Day is a day to show compassion and take action.

We rescued this kitten from the streets in Tbilisi several years ago and she lives happily with us. We called her Bambi.

And this is how she looks now ūüźĪ and her current name is Minkey – she likes this name much more ūüėÉ

You can read more about Minkey in my another post My Family and Other Animals.

If you have some time you can look at my animal photography page where I uploaded photos of street cats and dogs.

You can also read my post Street Cat Show.

And one more post about very lovely ginger cat who eat our meal in McDonald’s ūüėÉ

I hope all other stray animals will find homes where they will be cared and loved.

The Shadow Project

If you are not a ghost, you will have a shadow – light travels in straight lines and your shape stops it, creating a shadow.

Do you ever think about shadows? Have you noticed how shadows sometimes look more beautiful than the shape that created them? Some people chase tornadoes. I like chasing shadows and here is what I found:

Any object, living or inanimate, that can block light can cast shadows. And shadows can move. When you create a moving shadow, it reminds you that you are alive. So enjoy your shadows!
