Cat follies and other sweetness

The annual season of "drowning in honey" has begun!


This is just the tip of the iceberg. I have 26 honey supers sitting on my hives that need to be taken off by month's end, plus five drying in my garage, plus I still have a couple of five-gallon buckets to bottle.



This batch is delicious! Mostly basswood with some dandelion. SO DAMN GOOD!

And speaking of sweet, look at the beautiful painting my friend Joan from God's Little People made for me:


I just love it!! Thank you Joan.


And here are some sweet kitties...



Lovely Missy!


Buttercup watching Emerson play with Honey


Honey stalking her sister Buttercup. HONEY! Tsk tsk!


Strictly play between two sisters.




They were having a blast!



Missy is more dignified!


And Honey finally got tired out.


Beautiful Annuk.


Lovely Buttercup.

And...


I'm not entirely sure what's going on between Gordon and this duckling! :)

  2. Great action shots, Natalie. Even in this heat they play. Missy reminds me a lot of our Annie. Quite dignified. Gordon quacks me up. ;-)

  8. Gordon and the little duck are getting along swimmingly. It looks like he's trying to hide behind the duck but he's Peking.
    Annuk is looking especially gorgeous!

    1. I can mail you some! The problem is the postage often costs more than the honey. :( But email me if you're interested!
