  1. All of the shots are lovely, but the pic of the goat just cracks me up. (That is a goat, right? Or am I showing my ignorance?) Anyway, the look on the goat’s face says “this is MY piece of metal, and why the hell are you taking my picture?”. Too cute.

    1. Yes Brian, it is a goat 🙂 He can keep his metal, I just want him to stay out of my garden (along with his wife and kids). I felt quite justified in taking his mug shot in view of his previous criminal past 😉

  2. Once again fantastic, beautiful photographs.
    You have a goat! Or is that your husband?😄
    My sister has animals on her small holding in Wales. She has horses, chickens, ducks and has had sheep at various times. She always said she wants to keep goats. No idea why she doesnt. Oh and a dog, a cat and goldfish.
    Have a lovely day

    1. Thanks Dick. No, not my goat (or mu husband) – he belongs to the neighbours, and is a most bothersome animal (with his family). We did used to have many sorts of animals years ago, including goats. I don’t like them, they always want to eat what they shouldn’t and are very, very good at escaping.

      1. Ah. Himalayan Jasmine. Thats what it is! I have the damned stuff in my garden. No idea where it came from. Spreads like crazy. Like you say, slaughter it and it just bounces back worse than ever. Bees seem to like it though. I’m still gonna kill it before it takes over the garden.
        I think my sister decided against goats for the same reason as you.
        Have a great day

        1. I find it easy to pull out when it is little, but once it gets bigger it’s hard. The birds love the little berries, which is what does the spreading. I know the goat next door thinks it is a delicacy 🙂

    1. Than you very much. Yes, that petunia was showing off, but they are fading a little now in the summer heat.

    1. Himilayan Jasmine – has canes like bamboo, grows rampantly, good for hiding sheds, fences. Seeds everywhere, slaughter it down to the ground and it comes back again.

    1. Thanks Ruth, I do love photographing thistles, I don’t like digging them out though.

  6. I’m with Brian…the goat is great. But the first pix is my very favorite. The water drops on the flower…breathtaking.

    1. Thanks Margo, it was very pretty. I had just watered them because it was going to be a hot day, and then the drops caught my eye and I had to take a photo.

  7. The look on that goat’s face is the same look my Spawn often gives me…disdain.
    The picture of the rusting garden bird, stands out the most for me. There’s a kind of fading beauty to it.

    1. Think that look is a child special 🙂 I have two of these pyramids, and I like them a lot.

  8. That goat sure looks like he’s up to mischief. I’m curious to know whether he walked away peacefully after the mug shot, or caused a bit of mayhem first. 😄

    1. Ah, he is chained up – elsewise he would be creating mayhem again in my garden.

  9. I love your photographs Claudette. I particularly like the goat in this post. So far as new things are concerned, an open mind is the only option. If your mind’s open sooner or later an idea will pop right in and blow your mind! Take care.
