Appreciating life

One last vestige of color tenaciously hanging on to life in our otherwise tan, white, and gray and thoroughly excavated archaeological site.

Today a cat came to meditate on the flower.


To see what other animals have been posted around the world this weekend, have a visit at Camera-Critters.

It does seem as though the cat is mesmerized by the solitary bit of colour there!

I like your interpretation!

Leora said...

Looks like a snapdragon! Well, of course the cat would be interested. I love snapdragons, and I love how this one is tenaciously hanging on.

We should bow in awe and respect to the tenacity of mother nature. She gives bith to lives and beauties even in face of the utmost adversities.

I love these photos, Dina. There's such a beautiful message to see if you just stop to look.

That's a lovely way to put it to ruminate on a flower thanks sandy

It looks like the cat and the plant are having a conversation!
Great shot.

I'll admit that it looks a bit dry. Maybe we should go half-and-half weather-wise?

Dina: Probably hoping for a morsal to eat in the dug up land.

I agree with Leora - I love snapdragons, and they can be good survivors. Very cute shot.

This cat obviously has it figured out - you need to take time to enjoy life - you need to stop and smell...er, I mean, meditate on the flowers ;-)

Louis la Vache said...

Priceless! That cat seems to be completely enthralled by the flower!

Lilli & Nevada said...

How pretty and a thoughtful thing for the kittie to do

Ann said...

Love the cat shot. I'm quite sure cats have life all figured out. East, sleep, eat, with a few strokes thrown in for good measure.

Petrea said...

Oh, I am charmed. A cat meditating on a flower! Funny.

Eki, that's profound.
