I have been remiss in posting here for a number of weeks. During that time I lost my oldest kitty Yoko to oral cancer. She was 20 and had lived a long wonderful life. With her passing, two of my longest lived cats had passed this year - Chica went to the Rainbow bridge in March on my birthday at 22.
Another kitty ,Snowball has been having health issues and of course the holidays take up so much time. Hopefully with the worst over, I will get back to posting daily. I am taking and posting my photos on the 365project.com site if you care to follow along there.

I have been keeping up with the 365 project on that web site but falling behind here. We had to go our to town, then had company and a kitty emergency with our Yoko. All is well now and I am back to try and catch up!
This is from a nearby farm. I had wanted a photo of this huge horse against the background of the mountains but he or she had other ideas!

Shot in a corn flied a few minutes from my house after a night of storms. The clouds still lingered on the mountains. The morning glory was the one I used for my 365.

I am getting behind in my 365 project. I was not able to upload the pics the past two days. This is from the Rocky Broad River in Bat Cave. I was trying to shoot a pic more like the last one but this kayaker shot out of the rapids and under the bridge I was on. I spun around and kept taking photos until I could not see him anymore. A few came out. I did add more color to the top one for effect.

These were taken at the Bele Chere festival in Asheville this past weekend. The Silver Drummer Girl is a busker or street performer that has been performing in the area for a number of years. She stands on a platform in the street, still as a statue until someone puts a tip in her bowl and then she drums on her drum - often startling the tipper. For more info on her visit Silver Drummer Girl.

Didn't get any other shots for my photo a day so our neighbor's cat Jack will be the one today. He is a lovely cat with such beautiful eyes. Most days he is down under our house in the crawlspace hunting. We don't have any mice this year for sure!

The top photo was my main entry for the 365 project. We have an organic farm in town with a produce stand on the honor system. They also grow and sell flowers. Always a great place for photos!
My second favorite photo opp spot in town is this old farm - the barn looks wonderful in all seasons ad has so much character.

Black Mountain is a old resort town billing themselves as the Front Porch of the Blue Ridge with a huge red rocking chair as its symbol. This year they asked artists to paint a number of chairs to put out along the streets for use and display. Some are pretty cool.
Window boxes, planters and Rose of Sharon shrubs grace every nook and cranny of this tiny town. Many shops are housed in historic buildings and offer locally hand made items, antiques and food. The old Depot is a craft gallery and the train is open for viewing.

Still rainy and overcast but I got this shot of the larch in front of the house - love the textures of the bark and the green leaves behind.
Drove to Black Mountain for brunch and took this as the clouds rolled over the peaks. Getting tired of rain shots so hope the sun comes out soon. Anyone want some rain?
