He loves, and she loves … Tiny and Earl clowder the light fantastic this afternoon as foggy overcast gives way to "blue skies smiling at me."
Even as Tuck sands and paints and climbs ladders to the sky to spit and polish our humble home by the sea.

A little verbal bouquet for sweet Tiny and her clowder-mate from Helen Hunt Jackson (1830-1885) [full disclosure: my grandmother on my mother's side of the family used to recite poetry by the hour to me when I was a kid, and this was one of Nana's favorites]:
O suns and skies and clouds of June,
And flowers of June together,
Ye cannot rival for one hour
October's bright blue weather;
When loud the bumble-bee makes haste,
Belated, thriftless vagrant,
And Golden-Rod is dying fast,
And lanes with grapes are fragrant;
When Gentians roll their fringes tight
To save them for the morning,
And chestnuts fall from satin burrs
Without a sound of warning;
When on the ground red apples lie
In piles like jewels shining,
And redder still on old stone walls
Are leaves of woodbine twining;
When all the lovely wayside things
Their white-winged seeds are sowing,
And in the fields, still green and fair,
Late aftermaths are growing;
When springs run low, and on the brooks,
In idle golden freighting,
Bright leaves sink noiseless in the hush
Of woods, for winter waiting;
When comrades seek sweet country haunts,
By twos and twos together,
And count like misers, hour by hour,
October's bright blue weather.
O suns and skies and flowers of June,
Count all your boasts together,
Love loveth best of all the year
October's bright blue weather.

Kitties in love and Tuck doing the work he loves under blue October skies. Who could ask for anything more?

Tuck is a treasure! I have to hire someone to do the chores around my house! Meanwhile, Sam the Wonder Cat has a new lady friend of the orange tabby persuasion. She's very very shy and is as sweet as can be!

That shot of Tiny and Earl Grey is absolutely charming. (Nice pic of Tuck, too - I don't want him to feel left out!)

My goodness, Tiny looks like a young kitten again, but oh so refined. So that is what love will do.
And Earl seems to be getting more comfortable with your camera. Good news for all of us.
