To be truly happy and contended,
you must let go of what it means
to be happy or content.
--- Confucius
Here are some photos from this past month. I thought I would get that terrible picture of the oil disaster I posted earlier moving on down the list!

Look what hatched under one of our walnut trees last month? This was just about 2 weeks ago and the mommy cat has moved them since to someplace that we cannot find! :o( 5 in all, 2 siamese (mommy is siamese) 2 black multi tigers and one little black and white tuxedo. We thought she moved them to the field across the street (God only knows how as she had to jump across a tiny creek), but they may be in the vacant house next door. We hope to catch the mommy and have her fixed soon, but who knows. As many of you know, I did feral cat rescue and taming kittens 2 years ago and that could be one of the causes of my health challenges. One day at a time!

I couldn't resist taking a picture of this red pepper shaped like Mickey Mouse!

This yellow climbing rose is in downtown Lakeport. I passed it several times on my walk, but kept forgetting my camera so I finally made a special trip and drove by to take a picture. It has to be at least 40 feet tall.....just covered in small yellow roses and much more impressive in person!

I don't think I have ever had a double yolk egg in all my nearly 50 years! Isn't it cute? I hope it brings good luck!

This wisteria is also in Lakeport. The vine is growing on a fence about 40 or 50 feet long and then up the back tree. The tree is probably 20 feet. There was another wisteria downtown that was twice as big (I mean huge!), but I noticed that the people cut it down! Can you believe it? Almost sacrilegious!
