Three-part harmony

Our three cats do NOT get along... you'll see the two grey cats next to each other, or the stripy grey cat and the black cat next to each other, but you will NEVER see the marbled grey cat next to the black one unless they're fighting.. Tessie usually sits back on the other side of the room and waits for Scouty to finish eating before she goes over to the kibble dish. But there are exceptions to every rule, and the other day she was too hungry to wait - and Scouty was too hungry to make a fuss, so I snapped this photo! Three-part-harmony, with felines...

Trying out my new cameraphone

Here's a couple of photos I took on my walk the other day. The camera-phone isn't as good as a 'real' camera... but it's not too shabby either. The light was a little dim for some of the shots because it was getting a bit late in the evening, but my sunset photo came out beautiful.

I adore frangipani... they're such beautifully delicate flowers, and they have a glorious perfume. It's just a shame they don't bloom for very long.
The Canal a block from our apartment. There are three bridges across the canal in our immediate vicinity, and I usually take at least one of them on my walk. I'm a bit jealous of the people who's houses back onto the water - they get to see this beauty every day.
And lastly, the sun was just setting when I got home. I usually take my walk in the cool of the evening because it's too hot out there to even THINK about doing it in the daytime. I love the evening light - the only bad thing are the mosquitos that eat me alive!

Sorry it's been so long! It's been a very busy time for me... I've seen a bunch of things I would have loved to photograph while I was taking my daily walk, but I didn't have a camera with me. John's fixed that - he bought me a new phone (my old one's dying of old age) and it has a camera AND a built-in mp3 player. So when I walk I'll be able to photograph anything I see, at least once I figure out how to use the phone.

But for now, here's an older photo. I snapped these little beauties in the greenhouse at the Orchid Gardens up in Boca. The gardens are run by the Orchid Society and they almost closed down earlier this year for lack of fundage... but somebody came up with a donation to keep them running.
