Rust ~ Post No. 25

My friend Jane is back from her and her husband's latest trip to Tanzania. She said there wasn't much rust to be found in the Serengeti, so she sent this from a trip they took to Italy last year.

I fell in love with it and posted it in my sidebar to keep there for a long time. Isn't it the best rust photo ever?

Earlier, she sent me this from Tanzania:

I love how they are all lined up in a row of stripes, drinking. A sort of dizzying effect, reminiscent of 1960's psychedelic art. I wonder if this confuses their predators as well.

It's very special to me to have a friend who thinks of me in the midst of her adventures abroad. Thank you, Jane.

Oh, To Be In England ~ Part 2

No words necessary here, except to say that the puppy picture is not good. I didn't want to take more because I didn't know the dog and felt she needed to be at peace with her pups. They were only five days old, after all. 

I don't remember her name, but she was a beautiful dog and the first Saluki I met in my life. 

What's an English garden without a ginger cat? I met two actually, both boys. There were also two girls, not ginger, but they were not at home. Or hiding somewhere, perhaps, as cats are wont to do. 

The garden went on and on and was ever changing. This is my favorite picture, California poppies in a field, a white fence with rolling green hills in the background.
