They're starting to bloom all over my garden

She was attracted by the roses swaying in the breeze.
I completely forgot to put up Day 165. That's what happens when you fall behind getting shots off your camera.
We were amazed when she leaped from the ground into a tall trash can and then easily jumped out again. Nothing is safe now!
Little kitten images will be a lot less now that Freyja has gone to live with my daughter. We had her visiting every week for a few days to see if she and Loki could coexist and luckily they get along like best pals. I suppose Loki doesn't feel threatened by something so little and Freyja is thrilled to have a constant playmate.
After my mother passed away, one of the things I took from her house was some of her rose bushes. She loved growing them and the red ones were her favorites. When this one bloomed I decided to photograph it with two of her things. The gloves were from those days when a proper lady would always wear gloves when going out (I love the detail on them). The leather clutch was one my father bought for her on their honeymoon.
I was not happy with the oof rose. I think I'll revisit this idea when I get another perfect red rose from the garden.

Poor little thing...
My husband's assistant found him while parking her car. First she thought it was a rag in the road until it moved. His eyes were glued shut from a bit of disease and it was only 4 weeks old. No doubt it would have been run over quickly in the busy street!
So guess who got to pick him up and take him to the vet? And guess who is getting attached to the little thing?
I'm a sucker for spring flowers ;)
I also got my 50mm f1.4 lens back, all nicely repaired by Canon in the 7 days they promised. The focus is all back! This pic was sharper than this and I toned it down a bit to make it softer. Not sure this lens was even that good before they fixed it.
