The intricate song of summer

We walked in the sunshine, five cats like beads strung out on invisible thread, over the hill to the heather rocks and golden grasses.







Here we rested in warm sunshine and listened to the sound of summer, stonechat chipping, wren song and grasshoppers.




Intrigued by the intricate song of insects Maurice tried to find some hidden in the grass, little knowing that a song so big could arise from a creature so small.

So lovely to see all five cats acting like a pride of lions... ok, small ginger lions but still.

Maurice's ears are going to twitch like anything if he's listening out for insects.

Lovely to see you all trailing along.

I enjoy a good grasshopper crunch. They have not come out here yet. They must know I am waiting.

That looks like a very intriguing pathway -- just calling you to follow it. And what a joy if I met the ginger darlings on it!

Hello Jackie (and cats of course!)
Thanks for commenting on my blog and your kind words about my painting.
Have often visited your lovely site. Your artwork and words are magical!

Love to hear about your walks with the ginger darlings. Cats I had as a child did the same.

Have a good weekend
Karen
