Just an Ordinary Day

The last of my daylilies has started to bloom.  I have it recorded as "Betsy" but I can't find any daylily with that name.  This is the first time it has bloomed for me, so I think I'll go on a search and see if I can find out if it is "Betsy Something" or "Something Betsy."
The chipmunks are busy, gathering food for the coming winter.  I count seven.  No wonder the sunflower seeds disappear so quickly.
One little chipmunk, who has his home by my back steps, apparently decided, however, that he needed a snack.  He left this little pile of husks behind.
I didn't notice until I downloaded this picture that there were little ants crawling among the husks, looking for scraps.  You may have to click on this picture to be able to see them.
And, wonder of wonders, Leon is awake.  Though, I think he only woke up when I went out on the porch to take his picture.


I hope that, even if you are having an ordinary day, it is a lovely one.

The chipmunks look lively!

Leon looks especially pretty today, maybe because his eyes are open, :-)

I like ordinary days, as long as they stay that way!

Oh, Leon has such a nice perch! And my goodness, do you have a lot of chipmunks! I think I only have 2!
Hope you are having a great day too Louise!

I just posted on my last daylily to bloom too!

Leon sure looks comfortable on his window perch. A great spot for a nap.

Ordinary days are good days! And i love your cat!

Thank you for your kind words on my blog post last Monday, but Louise you give me way to much credit! I think all the people who left such nice comments like yours are the true gifts of life. Because it makes it a bit easier to fight all the bad stuff!

Any day when a cat can bask in the sun is a good day.

Hi Louise!! I love seeing all those chipmunks! I don't think I've ever seen so many in one place--Who knew they would invite friends to eat with them? :-)

I hope you're doing well, and your week is ending on a good note!
