Monday Miscellany

Miscellany: there’s a word you don’t get to use often.  But, here are a few random photos I happened to come across on my computer:

One evening last week, as I was outside watering my plants, I glanced up and saw this unusual cloud. Anyone else see a dolphin?

Saturday, I cleaned out the garage. And I threw away quite a few old, faded flowerpots. The others I took outside, rinsed with the garden hose and placed back in the garage in nice neat stacks.  (And this doesn’t count the ones that are actually in use at this time…) What I’m wondering is just WHO bought all these flowerpots?


Gypsy, our shop kitty, has a scratching post, which she uses regularly. The other day, I glanced over and saw her posing on top of it.  Looking rather regal, wouldn’t you say?

How’s this for “Bambi eyes”?

Saturday night, Motor Man and I went to Dairy Queen for a little date. As we were walking in, I saw this Luna moth (had to text Marshall to i.d. it for me).  It was on an exterior wall only a couple of feet off the ground, and I was afraid a curious child may harm him. So I carefully scooped him up and moved him to a nearby shrub. My friend, Renee, has recently intrigued me with her interest in moths, so I immediately sent her this picture.

How about your Monday miscellany? Here’s your chance to use that word….

  1. Marvelous medley of miscellany pictures!! That fawn looked like he had brushed and primed for his photo op, yes indeed I saw a dolphin!, and your/and now mine too friend/has me looking for moths as well, but I always loved Luna moths, and that was a beauty! Most amazing–that mystery buyer of ALL those flower pots! Insanity!! Ha – they were over here too!! Good week!

  2. I see the dolphin! How awesome! Brings back childhood memories of lying on the grass picking pictures out of the clouds. LOVE the flower pots…… Miscellany – GREAT idea to organize otherwise items with no commonality!

  3. Oh yes, I definitely see the dolphin.What a beautiful moth…I’m glad you rescued it.

  4. Some very cool photos, Dianne. Really enjoyed Bambi and Gypsy, but the moth was pretty neat, too!

  5. This is a great summertime TheseDays !

    Yes, I see a lovely dolphin in the sky. I love Gypsy’s pose so lady like. Your baby deer is a sweetheart. The moth is sooo pretty. I don’t think I have seen one like that. Your many flower pots, well you could open a store. lol

  7. Yep – definitely a dolphin swimming through the blue water (oops I mean sky)……love the luna moth – I see them RARELY but I do think they’re pretty. You have a love of plants that is only exceeded (apparently!) by your love of pots to put them in!!! Love your miscellany.


  8. I see that dophin too and I enjoyed your Monday miscellany photos. But wow, lady, you could start a store with all of those flower pots! 😉 Just kidding you.

  9. I saw the dolphin in the sky, too. Gypsy does look like royalty up there. Nice shots of the fawn and Luna Moth.
